Not a history lesson, 5 Dec 2011
As a piece of entertainment The Patriot is good. As an accurate account of actual historical events The Patriot is as far from the truth as you can get. Total self American glorification, this is Roland Emmerich at his best. It not only insults the British audience but the American audience that this film obviously targets. Surely Americans are not foolish enough to take this kind of movie as fact? What a shame Hollywood can't produce entertainment that is intelligent as well as engaging.
