What movie has the most Freedom?
by Anthro_Domer (2020-07-02 10:14:22)

As we all know, America is the only Freedom loving country (I've been to Europe; jails everywhere). So in honor of July 4th and kicking England's ass, I'd like to watch the most Freedom movie there is.

The obvious answer is Patriot, with great American Mel Gibson kicking British ass all over the planet, but I'd like to think a bit outside the box.

Thanks in advance fellow Freedom lovers.

It's imperfect (there's a whiff of lost causism) and some of it doesn't hold up great (fat 50 year old re-enactors tend to break suspension of disbelief), but the main cast is great, especially Jeff Daniel's Chamberlain.

even if the second half focus is mostly on the awesomeness of Chuck Norris and the 1980s fake Delta Force technology.

That's assuming the movie portrays things accurately. If I remember correctly, after a poor showing he ran his practice following a game until his players could barely stand and were throwing up. If I am recalling this incorrectly I apologize.

And any movie that builds up to a man screaming "Freedom" with his dying breath whilst having his entrails pulled out wins by default.

I feel an affinity to the Irish too, but their best weapon was a glorified stick, so we all know how that went.

Still though, Scotland is in Europe, so you get a C- for this suggestion.
