The Patriot Cast Latest Information

An American epic historical war film was written by Robert Rodat, directed by Roland Emmerich, and starring Mel Gibson, Chris Cooper, and Heath Ledger. Mostly set in Berkeley County, South Carolina, the movie follows Benjamin Martin (Gibson), a British-hating American colonist, and his adult son (Ledger) as they become entangled in the Revolutionary War after one of their kids is brutally murdered by a British officer (Isaacs).

A composite of Andrew Pickens, Francis Marion, Daniel Morgan, and Thomas Sumter is what Rodat has claimed about Martin. The majority of the film’s events take place in the South during World War II.

Critics gave the film a generally positive review, but it was slammed by British critics and historians for its anti-British sentiment, its fictionalized portrayal of British figures and atrocities, including the killing of wounded soldiers and prisoners of war, as well as the film’s main villain shooting a child in cold blood and an ahistorical scene in which a church filled with colonists is locked and burned, which was based on a historical event.

“None of it has much to do with the historical fact of the Revolutionary War,” Roger Ebert noted in his review of the film.
