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.

Thanks guys. I gotta admit, I abandoned it after about 40 minutes, then came back for the last 20 or so. Yes, the effects were very good, but it seemed sort of stagey, and set-up to me. And the interiors seemed awfully modern.
Maybe I'll eventually check-out the DVD, UB. I really liked Braveheart a lot more.
What I'm really looking forward to though, is The Passion.
Best to you all.
