Very similar to the handwriting of the Nazis, is not it? True, the recent world learned after only two centuries after the events, which were discussed in the "Patriot". What outraged the critics - is the fact that the British soldiers of the sample 1770's compared with the most brutal criminals of modern times. Steven Hunter, a famous film critic and historian, rightly observed: "Any reflection of the American Revolution, where the British show by the Nazis and the Americans themselves - a gentle and kind narodtse almost always wrong."

Yet the real Swamp Fox liked to have fun in his spare time hunting on the Cherokee Indians, and in between raping his slaves. In the movie the same theme of slavery in general is not affected - for all three hours. "Patriot" - a blatant propaganda in Hollywood. Story, full of blind spots, "- said about a picture directed by Spike Lee.

The film quite rightly raises the question of reasonableness of the crusade of King Richard the Lionheart (who, incidentally, is dead "wrong time" - the film two weeks later than it actually is), but this is almost the only bright spot. Next begins a continuous turmoil. Inflated to an inability to intrigues and does not happen in reality, attacks the French, too "right" and sometimes naive arguments about the rights of vassals of the king and completely in trained legend of Robin Hood, from which a reading of Ridley Scott, left only the name of the protagonist.

"Ten thousand years before our era", 2008

The film can be elegantly called sublimely stupid excursion into the history of mankind, and you can just tell that director took on too much and came to the matter too seriously.

"Three hundred Spartans, 2007

Bloody battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC in the interpretation of Zack Snyder has turned into a slaughterhouse with batons.

From the Persians in the film did besharakteryh hypocrites and bullies, who only can that blows on the sly, and from Xerxes - mannered freak, avid to foreign lands.

The filmmakers are confused and in the chronology: the scenario turns out that George VI was engaged with a teacher of oratory just a few years in the mid-1930's, while in reality they have cooperated since 1926.
