I love this movie!

Very entertaining but things can get VERY intense! But since the movie is trying to be realistic then it needs to be intense like saving private ryan! By the way- we are learning about the war in school and are going to watch this movie tomorrow!! I think some people will be scarred for life!! Lol

the violence shows it like it is

there are scenes like when a guy chops up a guy so bad you can see the blood splattering and some scenes with language so thats what i think

Iffy for 14+

I like this movie but I don't believe it is entirely appropriate for even 13+

an evil creation that is too violent to like

probably one of the most violent movies ever. people are shot (including a little boy), stabbed by bayonets, or hit by a pickaxe that was thrown at them.

Violence seems a little bit on the fake side.

I was watching this movie with my mom, and one of the first things that came to my mind was how fake the blood looked at times. It looked as if a little kid had found some very fake looking blood splatter and just slapped it onto the person getting killed. If it was a comedy, it would be fine. But this is not a comedy at all.

Amazing movie

I'm 13 now but I watched this movie around 9 years old and me personally, I can handle tons of violence in movies and video games. some kids might not be able to handle it, but most kids I know can handle this. Great story and don't underestimate your kids ability to watch scary things

The Patriot

The Patriot is an amazing movie and I loved it! Mel Gibson is a great actor this movie is very bloody a lot of limbs falling off. One scene a cannonball knocks of a persons head with lots of blood and in one scene a cannonball blows off several peoples legs and arms. I loved this movie but it was very bloody.

Very mature Tweens but very good

This is a movie with VIOLENCE but it's not as bad as SAW A man gets his leg taken of and his head He chops a man with a tomahawk with lots of blood People get stuck in house and burn And suicide, shootings and main characters die So basically shawshank redemption

Great Role models

This is my absolute favorite movie, but is not for the faint heart. The role modeling is great. It shows the true bravery of American Patriots. This is a very sad movie, however. A man witnesses his 15 year olds death and it may shock some. A man discovers his family dead, and shoots himself in the head. The main protagonists sons new wife is in a church as the British come and set it on fire. The people inside are shown crying and screaming, trying to batter down the locked doors. The son goes out for revenge and kills the main British leader (apart from general cornwallis who isn't shown nearly as much), but as he goes to assure the kill, he suddenly turns around alive and stabs the son with his sword. When his father comes, it is very emotional and sad. The violence is bearable for a mature 12-13 year old. The goriest part of the movie is when the protagonist hacks at a British corpse as his youngest sons watch. The impacts aren't shown but you see blood all over his shirt. In my opinion, thats not the most violent part of the movie. During a battle, a cannon ball soars through the air and takes the head off a man shown up close; blood sprays. Also at the end, a cannon ball rolls a wrenches the legs off american soldiers. It happens in a very gory manor. Blood sprays almost every gunshot, but it is bearable.But in the end, you will be on the edge of your seat screaming YES! and smiling. This movie makes you feel very good at the end. I would definitely recommend this.

Great movie

Although violent, this film has good messages and a fantastic story line. Nothing a mature 12 or 13 year old couldn't handle.

Revolution!

Great history film. I know everything can't be real in this video but it wasn't that inaccurate. You should show this to your kid on the 4th of July to show them what was lost for freedom. The sacrifices that were made was unbelievable. It is pretty bloody though. Maybe for a mature kid, 11 and up.

Good but one of the most violent movies i have every seen

I saw this movie and it is very violent but if you played Assasin's Creed 4 you get the idea. The main character's 2 eldest sons die and his family is in grave danger from this british officer who is a big dick the entire movie. A little bit of language but not to serious

This is definitly in my top 5 list!

It's really hard for Me to give this a bad age score, because my Dad let me watch this when I was 10. I really like this movie. If someone asked me what Me what My favorite movie is, this would certainly be in contention. The first time I watched this the violence bothered me a lot, so if Your really squeamish about blood and gore(there is a slight amount of gore in this movie), just don't watch this movie.
