Although it isn't that unique of a war film, Gibson presents a solemn and determined presence that anchors the film's plot. His devotion for his country and his family drives the film and gives heart to the impressive and frequent bloody battle sequences.

Martin is motivated by revenge on the Colonel and the film culminates in a battle between Martin and the Colonel.

Widower "Benjamin Martin" (Mel Gibson), a veteran of the French/Indian War, wants only one thing -- to raise his family on the family plantation. He is totally against the brewing conflict with the British, and is at odds with his eldest son "Gabriel" (Heath Ledger), who is for going to war with Britain. The rift between the two over the war spreads more when "Gabriel" joins the militia when the state representatives, one of which is his father, votes to enter the war. However, "Benjamin" was one of the 12 to vote against entering the war.

Then, after a battle just yards away from the Martin Plantation, "Benjamin," his other children and the slaves on the plantation are taking care of injured from both sides of that battle when a group of Redcoats come up to the plantation to take the...
