The Patriot The film The Patriot directed by Roland Emmerich and starring Mel Gibson is about the time of the American Revolutionary War It opens right before the colonies are about to go to war with England It is a story about a single father with six children named Benjamin Martin who is a veteran of Continental guerrilla warfare from the French and Indian War days He doesnt like war or the idea of the colonies going to war because hes been through it -- in fact hes been a rather vigorous participant in it as is alluded to many times but you never quite know what hes trying to cover up It may be war crimes or something else pertaining to his service during the French and Indian war The movie is misleading because hes not actually the Patriot his son is the Patriot But I think he kind of takes a leaf out of his boys book and eventually becomes very patriotic But hes a little more mercenary and fearful of war and really trying to avoid it more than grab the f lag and start waving it which he eventually ends up doing When his oldest son enlists in the continental army he is torn apart but does what he must to keep the rest of his family away from what is going on around them What he didnt know was that there was to be a battle right outside his home and his oldest son would be wounded and come home for care The morning after that happened he took in all of the soldiers from both sides to care for them Later that morning he was visited by a British Colonel who ordered all of the colonials be killed and took the oldest boy as a prisoner As the next eldest boy ran out to try to save his brother the British Colonel shot him As a veteran
