Atom User Reviews
Whatever extraordinary ingredients are necessary to fashion a 1776 home run, this movie doesn't have them.
It is rousing and entertaining, and you get your money's worth.
What might have been a treat for history buffs and a refresher course for the rest of us turns into just another occasion to watch Gibson shoot guns, swing tomahawks, and wreak other kinds of havoc on enemies we've been primed to hate.
