I cannot judge wether the movie is the best one dealing with the American Revolution or not, but personally the only message that I got from this film was revenge, revenge and again revenge. I never understood why Roland Emmerich created such a movie. To me it appeared like he desperately wanted to find a new "hero role" for Mel Gibson, inspired by "Braveheart". Emmerich is - funny fact - very much into creating patriotic films about the U.S. ^^miditek wrote:Speaking of the late Heath Ledger, I just saw a film that he co-starred in several years ago. It was "The Patriot" with Mel Gibson, which is in all probability the best film that I've ever seen that deals with the American Revolution.
Yesterday I watched Der Baader Meinhof Komplex, a very authentic movie about the deeds of the 1st and 2nd generation of the terroristic German "Rote Armee Fraktion". Probably one of the best movies made in Germany (I know that most of our movies suck! Most of them are melancholic comedys and/or melodrams that totally miss their aim), besides others like "Das Boot", or latest Oscar Winner "Das Leben Der Anderen".
