    I didnt realise the the Revolution was fought to free the slaves from the evil Brits.
    I cant understand why white supremacists dont make more of this fact.

    Mr Gibson shows us how the Brits are violent animals who roused the slave population to fight against them.

    Mels character reassures his slaves and encourages them to fight against an oppressive enemy of liberty . The same enemy of liberty who had guarenteed their freedom if they fought for the British.

    America swftly made them free only a century later.

    Pretty much all of the movie which leads one to wonder if you even saw it at all or were simply watching while looking for something, anything to demean it and Americans therefore intentionally misinterpreting the whole gist of the movie, (the more likely scenario).
    Oh and while the characters were primarily based on real persons the movie is an almost complete work of fiction.

    That movie was fact from start to finish taint, and another wonderful and true movie is L.A. Confidential. It shows cops in the 50's that were all racist murdering drunken criminals. All true, I swear. Watch and see so you can find out more about our history. Also it show a near 50 year old Kim Bassinger without saggy tits. That's real.

    Its a fantasy piece. A joke movie. There is a decent story to tell here and this isnt it.
