Directing The Patriot

Posted by Andrea on December 24, 2000 at 12:31:28:

Hi all,
I have some questions I'd like to propose. Like we know, The Patriot has been savagely atacked by some critics on account of the treatment Emmerich gave to the story, choosing to tell a revenge tale rather then trying a more insightful approach on the war itself (their opinion, not mine). This has me thinking. Had Rodat's script been given to other director, such as Steven Spielberg or Michael Mann (Last of the Mohicans), would they have worked it differently? How? Would it have made the movie any "better", from the critics point of view? "What comparison can be made between The Patriot and Saving Private Ryan, another Rodat's script? Any opinions?

Merry Christmas
