Shamelessly stirring, brandishing Mr. Gibson's anguished masculinity like a musket. It may be effective, but you leave the theater feeling used. Full Review
David Edelstein
It's depressing that this first movie in years to dramatize the American Revolution has so little to do with the politics of secession and so much to do with pop-culture themes of vigilantism. Full Review

Washington Post
Mostly, the movie is riveting, well-done fare -- the stuff of Hollywood epic adventure. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
It's often corny, but it's never boring, and it'll sweep you up in its momentum if you give it a chance. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Does benefit from Gibson's charisma...Whether it is quite good enough is another question. Full Review
