The watch carried by Julian Adams, playing Captain Robert Adams, in the film was the actual watch that Captain Adams owned and carried during the War. The watch was made in England in 1801. It was given to Captain Adams by his father Robert Adams I, who was given the watch by his father Joel Adams. It has been in the possession of the family ever since. See more »

A noble cause in wanting to make this film by the family of John Adams, but uh boy, there are serious script flaws, lack of believability in some of the characters due to sub-par acting (by Julian Adams, mainly), continuity problems, and a wardrobe that at times looks like it came out of a cracker-jacks box. This film is billed as being filled with passion and being "explosive", according to one IMDb reviewer. I think dead people are more passionate and explosive! I don't know why this film is getting so many positive reviews, it's really not good at all. I'm only giving it 3 stars myself out of consideration for the family's desire to tell the story of their heritage (assuming it is all true, but I've found nothing on the history of Robert Adams anywhere else but in this film, so who knows how much of the movie is historically accurate).
Even if you're a civil war history buff, this film will likely barely hold your interest (if at all).
Sorry, Adams family. Nothing personal, I'm just calling it like I see it.
