The Patriot

New this month Question: At the end of the movie, Martin stabs Tavington in the stomach, and then in the throat. How does he know Tavington is really dead this time? Earlier in the film, Tavington pretended to be dead twice after Martin's sons shot him.

New this month Answer: Guns were less powerful during Revolutionary times and the wounds were more survivable. Deep and ripping knife stabs to areas like the abdomen and the neck area are more likely to be fatal. Tavington may not die instantly, but he would probably bleed out and/or bleed internally fairly quickly.

Question: Whats the name of the theme when the trailer shows the tagline 'before they were soldiers, they were family'?

Chosen answer: I think the one you want is 'Unseen' - By Craig Armstrong which is track 2 on the Plunkett and Macleane soundtrack.

Question: Tavington says he can never go back to England. Why?

Chosen answer: Because he would be viewed as a dishonorable, brutal, un-British man for the extremely immoral things he is about to do (e.g., burn a church filled with women and children), and would be shunned by society. He's willing to do this in exchange for a manor and land in America when (as he believes will happen) the British win the war.

Question: Who was the baby in Charlotte's arms in the closing scene? Why was the baby not alluded to previously?

Chosen answer: At the end of the film, it is implied that Charlotte and Benjamin Martin have married and had a child together. It wasn't alluded to earlier because it is meant to show that a person's life can start over, even after tragedy and loss.
