Makes you wonder how America ever got established.
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The thing that struck me the most in this film about the Puritans was the fact that they were dumber than yesterday's dirt. They planned to go to America for months and months and yet their plans went no further than the end of their nose.

They knew they were coming to a wilderness, yet beyond laying in supplies for the journey on the ship and apparently bringing some axes and saws they had no plan for what they would do when they got there.

The captain of the Mayflower had a devil of a time even getting them off the ship once they reached America. Considering the conditions of the stinking hold in which they traveled one would have thought that they wouldn't even wait for the gang plank to be put down.

Very talky and draggy, the only truly interesting parts of this film were when they brought in the Native Americans.

William Bradford is more prominently featured than the other Puritans, unfortunately he was played by an actor so homely, he shouldn't appear on camera without a grocery bag over his head.

6 stars out of 10 and that's being generous.
