Very enjoyable movie that reminds me of MEL GIBSONS BRAVEHEART,BENJAMINE will fight no more not since a woman tamed him & gave him a family before she departed & now in honor of her memory he keeps his past suppressed,the colonies are at war with ENGLAND & are suffering severe losses at the behest of the infamous RED COATS,these farmers are no match for the well disciplined outfit who advance at any cost under general CORNWALLIS,a cry for help comes to town when the colonials plead for signatories but BENJAMINE will not answer even for an old friend,things take a dramatic turn when BENJAMINE is forced into the war indirectly by a crazed ENGLISH officer with no tolerance for the enemy,BENJAMINE is experienced & skilled with knowledge of the bush & trails something he will use to attack this army from a different angle & try to turn the advantage of this futile war....very well made movie,I couldn't care less if it was historically accurate or not to be get the picture THE WAR OF INDEPENDENCE & I am sure that there were travesty's on both sides so why not just enjoy the movie as one possible story during this period of history...I thoroughly enjoyed it...highly recommended.
