Salon - Andrew O'Hehir
This bloody celebration finally gives the American Revolution the epic it deserves.

USA Today - Mike Clark
Emmerich might have had a masterpiece, but he'll have to settle for what comes close to being a must-see movie today.
75
Boston Globe - Jay Carr
It's often corny, but it's never boring, and it'll sweep you up in its momentum if you give it a chance.

Charlotte Observer - Lawrence Toppman
The best movie I've seen about the Revolutionary War.

Philadelphia Inquirer - Desmond Ryan
If Emmerich had any sense, he would have ceded the direction of the battle scenes to his star.
