I normally don't go to  JUL 14 2000

I normally don't go to movies to check out how bad they are, but I'd heard such negative things about The Patriot that I was drawn to it. If you find yourself in a theatre watching this movie, run - don't walk - to the nearest exit. Basically, they took the script from Independence Day, replaced the aliens with the British, added some bits from Braveheart, and sprinkled in a little Matrix and Return of the Jedi. The only difference is that those movies worked on at least some level (the blowing up of the White House in ID4 counts as "working on some level")...The Patriot did not. Ick.
