    Direct and Clear

    This movie about "America's Greatest Soldier" during the American Revolutionary War was clear, direct, and correct. My students could understand clearly what was happening and who Benedict Arnold was.

    Short shrift given to Battle of Saratoga

    I really enjoyed this biopic about my favorite Revolutionary War hero, without whom the war probably would not have been won. However, I take issue with the passing glance given to Arnold's major achievements, like starting the American Navy and winning the decisive battle at Saratoga, which finally convinced the French to support the rebellion, and ultimately helped us win. Yes, his trying to deliver West Point to the British was reprehensible and inexcusable, but the good he did probably outbalanced the bad and should have been fleshed out more in this otherwise well-done movie. Aidan Quinn, aside from being great eye-candy, was actually a good choice for Arnold as he sort of looks like him. But I wonder whether Peggy Shippen had a British accent and whether David Franks actually walked around with the Star of David around his neck. Great fare for Revolutionary War buffs.

    An awesome movie

    When I was flipping through the channels, I saw the words Benedict Arnold, and since I like to study him I stopped. What I then saw was one of the most moving peices of film-work I had ever seen. Defenitly worth the watch, it is one of the few movies I will buy on DVD.
