What a strange collection this is. and I make no apologies for the simplicity of the review. If you want details, call up the films individually. Each disc appears to be identical to it's individual disc version [I have the first two and bought this for The Messenger as this was cheaper than purchasing the individual disc] so if it works out cheaper get this, it's virtually buy one get 2 films free.
The Patriot is an American War of independence movie made in 2000 featuring Mel Gibson as a reluctant widower drawn into the conflict after his son is arrested by the British. The film is based on four 'heroes' of the revolution but historical accuracy is seriously flawed. The film has a number of gruesome fight scenes and contains much violence. A decent *** adventure/action movie, but lacks real substance or accuracy.
Glory is an account of the first 'Afro-American' [if that's politically correct] regiment in the American Civil War and was filmed in 1989 and released at the end of the year. The story is seen through the eyes of their white commanding officer, whose real life letters the film is mostly based on. It follows the regiment from formation to its bloodying at Fort Wagner. Well acted [generally] its a moving story and deserves a **** rating. However its not all blood and guts as there is surprisingly little fighting.
Joan of Arc :the messenger is set in France in the middle ages and has nothing to do with the others. This 1999 film version may upset many as it shows Joan [brilliantly played by Milla Jovovich] not as a calm and collected individual but as a deeply troubled one who is led by her deep beliefs and frustrated by those around her.

This set is really good but strange collection but never mind three great films in one box.
The patriot stars Mel Gibson as a farmer who is enlisted with his sons to fight for independence against the french the film is really good the scenery is great the story is strong one of the best films about the war for independence.
The second glory is about the American civil war between north and south and about how life was a struggle for the soldiers whilst fighting during the war.
The third is about joan of arc the saviour of the french nation seen as a arc angel sent to save the french people during times of hardship and starvation. All of these three films are great films filmed greatly and should be appreciated one by one for what they are highly recommended and at such a great price.

Absolute tatt - does for the revolutionary war what U751 did for the battle for enigma ie complete rubbish. Good cast; appalling script. Fantastical caricatures: all here and present. Some class war there. And WW2 war-crimes sown in too. Hideously inaccurate. More people need to read some history: fiction is fine; blatant anti-British nonsense is another.

The Patriot extended cut finally makes it's appearance on BluRay in a video and audio quality that would make any Patriot proud. The film follows Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson) a former French-Indian war hero turned farmer as America looms on the brink of war with the British during the Ameican Revolutionary War. Following the death of one of his eldest son's during the British's invasion of his home by ruthless redcoat commander Colonel Tavington (an excellent turn by Jason Issacs), Martin swears revenge against him and joins the South Carolina militias with his son Gabriel (Heath Ledger). As battles ensure Martin reconnects with the Patroit inside himself which he'd hoped to leave behind with his darker past, leading to a climatic battle for redemption, revenge and freedom for America.

This is the extended cut of the film so it contains many subplots and scene extensions which were cut for the DVD and theatrical release. Video and audio is given a welcome upgrade from the DVD release and the extended scenes are seamlessly integrated.

Oh my Lord God... What went into this movie?? Money that would have been better spent writing a better script, hiring a better cast, creating an interesting story and of course not an american flag in sight, which actually wasn’t around at this time, but anyway…. This film is shallow, contrived, biased, historically incorrect (to say that it was inaccurate would be an understatement), patriotic (for all the wrong reasons), fake, possesses poor special effects, has bad, BAD acting, totally unrealistic scenes and actions. But apart from all this the film's all right.

I just don't see how anyone can appreciate this film, it truly is very, VERY bad. It just is totally fake; Let's shoot a Brit from 200yds away with a Musket, yea good one. Let's throw a tomahawk from a range of 30 or more feet past the head of my son and into the head of the bad Brit who is hiding behind and didn't even see the axe coming...

Honestly, this film is full of unrealistic rubbish. For you to enjoy this film, you can't have had much experience in what a good action film actually is, e.g. Last of the Mohicans/ Gladiator, and to a certain extent Jean d'Arc or Black Hawk Down. This does not even compare to any of the above. It is not even in the slightest bit moving or sad or exciting, the plot is simple: American avenges murder of family member and kills lots of Brits, survives, kills the baddy and it's all happy ever after. No sub-lying intelligent plot, like Jean d'Arc, No surprises nor shocks to the system (like Gladiator), a truly bland adaptation of a thoroughly worn out action genre.
The direction of this film is poor indeed; battle scenes are contrived rubbish, and unimaginative. This film has nothing new, nothing that hasn't been done before.
