    Сast and Crew


    Screenwriter Robert Rodat wrote seventeen drafts of the script before there was an acceptable one. In an early version, Anne is pregnant with Gabriel's child when she dies in the burning church. Rodat wrote the script with Gibson in mind for Benjamin Martin, and gave the Martin character six children to signal this preference to studio executives. After the birth of Gibson's seventh child, the script was changed so that Martin had seven children. Like the character William Wallace, which Gibson portrayed in Braveheart five years earlier, Martin is a man seeking to live his life in peace until revenge drives him to lead a cause against a national enemy after the life of an innocent family member is taken.

    There was a feeling of déjà vu while watching it. It’s like watching "Braveheart" under the Stars and Stripes, but more secondary. This is a big main disadvantage. Pros: juicy picture, costumes, battles and M. Gibson with a tomahawk, not scalping his opponents. Translated to English


    A good, but too one-sided war film. Dividing sides into black and white without any exceptions is generally not comme il faut for this genre. Location shooting with a large number of people and the scale of battles seem to be there, but their staging leaves much to be desired. Translated to English
