Historically totally inaccurate

Portrays the British as evil and SS like. Totally unbelievable and highly inaccurate

The American Braveheart
Verified purchase
I found this movie enjoyable, I would give it an 80/100. It's engaging, particularly in the beginning, and well made. On the down side, it is a bit long, and it seems like the director tried to cram in too many events instead of focusing in the most important ones. Also, the main topics and characters are almost identical to Braveheart, which leaves you feeling like you've seen the story before.

Good Movie...
Verified purchase
Packed well and arrived quickly considering the Covid-19 situation.
Love this movie...Good story really well made...Looks good, Sounds good and the sets and costumes are exceptional,the cast do a great job and it doesn't pull any punches with the brutality of war.
As other reviewers say it is an American Braveheart...Well trained violent warrior opts for a life of peace until that life and his loved ones are threatened by an unjust foreign power.
BluRay really shows how much time and money was spent on getting things right...some of the shots in this movie are framed like paintings and are lit beautifully. Not a huge amount of extra features but what's there is interesting.

A powerful fictional account of events which turned the course of the American War of Independence.
Verified purchase
This DVD took a while coming (as indicated by the promised dates) but it was within the deadline & arrived in excellent condition. It is a very gripping fictional story of a former British war hero who switches sides due to the brutality of the British troops fighting the Americans. Is it an accurate account of what happened? I have no idea, but the story carries it's viewers with it as it unfolds. Well worth watching, whether it changes your views on the American War of Independence or not.

"and the cost is more than I can bear"
Verified purchase
This film is a blast (excuse me)
The acting is very good (with particular note for the performances of Mel Gibson and ma boy Lucius Malfoy)
The fights are fun as hell action sequences brimming with a patriotism I never knew I had.
Light on history but with enough there to hook in an inquisitive mind
Some parts get a little boring but that's just a pacing problem, other than that it's a great period piece on a war that isn't covered too much in cinema.

Nice transfer, good sound and well put together
Verified purchase
Nice transfer, good sound and well put together. A good improvement over the DVD. As for the film itself, well, you're better going to IMDB for that. It's entertaining, and a better depiction of the AWI than most. The evil British side is pretty cliche and spoils it somewhat, but then, it is an American production. Some great characters all round, with a decent attempt at presenting a complex story.

a good solid film
Verified purchase
As always excellent acting by the main characters, solid story line and though its a topic done numerous times it still manages to bring its own edge to this film of fight the goof fight.
