good little independent
10 April 2005 | by studiointhewoodsSee all my reviews

i went on a realflix viewing spree recently and watched several independent films recommended by that site. "patriots" was one of those movies.

before writing this review, i noticed the previous reviewer's distaste for this picture but, to be honest, i don't share his view. you can certainly tell this movie was shot low budget-- there are no stars i recognized-- but i found the characters believable and the plot compelling.

i would caution viewers not to expect Hollywood here... this is an example of film-making on a shoe-string-- with that in mind, i give it a higher mark. still, it would have been nice to see a few more dollars thrown at this one.
