Maybe it's some kinda movie lingo too. Gibson seems like a swell guy, but that film, frankly, stinks.
Oh, I know I'm gonna get it now....

Maybe it's me, but I liked it and saw nothing wrong.

There's no accounting for taste. Try to watch the DVD version with a surround sound capable DVD and TV.
The sound effects in the movie are just unbelievable. I saw one rating site that listed the movie's audio effects as being in the top five of all.
The sounds of the cannon shots are done in such a way that you can follow its audio trajectory across the room you are viewing the movie in , totally cool.

That's OK Doug - you can dislike it if you want. :-) Everybody has their own tastes. Personally, I liked it, if only for the fact that Mel Gibson wanted to make a movie about the Revolutionary War. We don't have enough movies about our fight for independence. And this one - however inaccurate - at least bases some of the story (very loosely) in fact. I watched it again recently after having seen it only once, and found I enjoyed it more than the first time.
