It's easy to see how events could change someone from complete neutrality to a complete patriot.

This is a good entertaining epic from the producer ofID4(Independence Day) Not nearly as amazing as Braveheart, but still very good and accurate to the period. 1776. This was also before Mel's infamous DUI arrest and his even more famous 'meltdown" which can be heard on YouTube. Now days the only roles they will let him do are those "maniacs" or mentally disturbed characters. Too bad as we know he torpedoed his own career with all those hateful racist remarks. I wonder if his legions of female fans will support him? Anyway, The Patriot is well done and the late Heath Ledger plays his eldest son and almost steals the film from Mel!

Compelling War Drama. Mel Gibson In One Of His Best Performa
HAMLET | 09/14/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Extended Cut of this war picture starring Mel "Martin Riggs" Gibson and a pre-Joker Heath Ledger has 10 minutes of scenes previously deleted from the film re-inserted into the movie. I can't remember any of the differences between the theatrical edition (available as the Special Edition DVD) and this cut of the film, save for one shot that clears up a continuity error. The performances from everyone are top-notch, especially Mel Gibson, Heath Ledger, Lisa Brenner, Jason Isaacs and Tom Wilkinson. Great movie. Unrated, but contains graphic violence."
