Directing The Patriot

I have some questions I'd like to propose. Like we know, The Patriot has been
savagely atacked by some critics on account of the treatment Emmerich gave
to the story, choosing to tell a revenge tale rather then trying a more insightful
approach on the war itself (their opinion, not mine). This has me thinking.
Had Rodat's script been given to other director, such as Steven Spielberg
or Michael Mann (Last of the Mohicans), would they have worked it differently?
How? Would it have made the movie any "better", from the critics point of
view? "What comparison can be made between The Patriot and Saving Private
Ryan, another Rodat's script? Any opinions?
