there has been mixed reviews regarding the superbit format-essentially that you need a high defenition tv to really appreciate the improved digital transfer.well i have viewed this movie on a 32" tv and i was literally blown away! the picture is pin sharp and the soundtrack is amazing.using the dts option i was amazed at the clarity and depth of the soundtrack.i could hear every shot from the numerous battle scenes,my living room was immersed in true surround sound.the thing to remember with superbit is the inclusion of dts,which was never offered on the standard release in the uk by columbia tri-star.i cannot recommend the superbit format enough, for the inclusion of dts it gets a ten out of ten alone.

Once again Mel Gibson has managed to totally re-write history, but if you don't mind chronological details and actual history being made up this is actually an enjoyable film.
A father goes to war against the English after his son is killed and frees America (all on his own)

Good DvD at a fair price that arrived quickly - I still marvel that so many people think Mel Gibson is not portraying a traitor to the crown and terrorist who violates the laws of war!

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 3 December 2011
"The Patriot" made in 2000 and on DVD in 2001 is Mel GIbson in one of his classic roles, roles which often involve driven characters pursuing their passions, extremists for a cause and all this before he started directing. Roland Emmerich directed Gibson and Ledger and drew two great performances from them.

Despite the length and its twisting of historical fact to suit the film, it is an exciting throughout. 1776 in colonial South Carolina is Benjamin Martin's home, a French-Indian war hero who is haunted by his past but now wants nothing more then to live peacefully on his small plantation, and wants no part of a war.

Despite his desires, he is caught up in this war with Great Britain, the War of Independence after his son is killed.

Some scenes are not for the faint-hearted (or for the accurate historians) but enjoyable just as a film.

This is a racist film that should not be shown on UK tv. Its a shameful rewriting of history especially the church burning incident. I wont watch anything with Mel Gibson in now due to this.
