For those who don't know the story behind the film, it is a simple but affective one. Mel Gibsion plays a Scottish commoner named William Wallace, who leads an uprising against the cruel and tyranic king of England named Edward Longshanks (Patrick McGoohan)to free Scottland from English rule. Very few films come close to Braveheart. It is perhaps one of the most inspiring and powerful films ever made. Mel Gibson could not have done a better job. He not only took on the difficult task of directing this film, but he also played the lead character. The passion and energy that he brought into the character of William Wallace is incredible, and watching him act out the role will amaze you. The rest of the cast was filled with talented actors who nailed their roles as well such as Angus MacFadyen ( Robert the Bruce), Patrick McGoohan ( Edward Longshanks), and Sophie Marceau ( Princess Isabelle). However, the performances given from the entire cast, is not the film's only strong point. The battle scenes are incredible. The sheer violence and authenticity of each battle scene is unreal. It is so realistic looking, that you will be made to flinch at times. The film also features a powerful soundtrack filled with beautiful bagpipe scores that really add to each scene. Last but not least is the film's ending. It is perhaps one of the best I have ever seen, and it brought the film to a thrilling and satisfying conclusion. Overall, Braveheart will go down as one of the best films ever made in my opinion. There are very few films that match its intensity, authenticity, and inspiring story. Mel Gibsion should be proud because he created a masterpiece. The DVD is definately the way to go in this case. First of all, the whole film is captured on one disk, and you do not have to worry about switching tapes. Secondly, you get a behind the scenes featurette on the making of the film and commentary from Mel Gibsion. The picture and sound quality is excellent as well
I bought this movie because I am a history buff, and I am in love with anything containing Scottish heritage and culture. I fell in love with this movie the first time I saw it. It has breathtaking scenes of the Scottish countryside, heartfelt music, combatitive action, romantic love, and sorrowful death. The struggle of the Scottish people for their right to freedom is portrayed in this epic story of life, love, and loss. William Wallace looses his father and brother in a tragic betrayal and is then taken with his uncle and raised in a land not his own. Only to one day return to his beloved Scotland and its people. He is well educated and liked by some while others are wary. Wallace just wishes to live his life in peace yet the turmoil of his country will not allow it to be so. Wallace's love is brutally murdered and he is dragged into a political war against the English king for his homeland. Wallace makes many new friends and countless enemies and ultimately his demise is at the betrayal of a newfound friend, Robert the Bruce. Wallace dies at the hands of English torturers with the word 'freedom' on his lips. Empowered by the brave William Wallace, the Scottish people rose up again, and led by Robert the Bruce they took victory. Mel Gibson is an outstanding actor. He brought to life the character of William Wallace. You felt his happiness, his victory, his sorrow, and his pain. For any Mel Gibson fan, this movie is a must see. If you liked "The Patriot" and all of the "Lethal Weapon" movies, you will definitely like Braveheart.
ALL time best movie EVER
William Wallace (Gibson) is born a common highlander, the son of a lowly farmer, but he soon finds himself at the very eye of the storm. For Scotland suffers under the rule of the ruthless English king, Edward the Longshanks, and any attempt to resist his cruelty is met with the harshest punishment. When young Wallace's father and older brother are killed in a failed bid for freedom, Wallace is taken away by his uncle Argyle, who raises and educates him. Years later, Wallace returns home seeking a peaceful life as a farmer. He finds his childhood sweetheart, Murron (Catherine McCormack), and secretly marries her, hoping to start a family. But in so doing, he's already broken the law. Longshanks, in a bid to strengthen his control in Scotland, has given his lords there the right of "Prima Nocta" - the right to sleep with any new bride on their wedding night. Wallace's defiance leads the local English lord to last out. In a rage, Wallace responds by leading a revolt that wipes out the English presence in his village entirely. When Longshanks attempts to crush this uprising, the situation quickly escalates. Soon, Wallace finds himself the leader of a massive rebellion determined to free Scotland from the English forever or die trying.
Braveheart defines honor and nobility
This is one of my favorite movies of all time, definitely in my top 3. There are all lot of life lessons here, some that are just under the surface, others that are right in your face. This is my definition of a guy movie! This is Rated “R” for nudity, adult situations and graphic violence. It is a classic, and at 3 hours long. There is a great mix of romance and battle scenes, to keep you interested. It will someday, probably be sliced and diced for a “PG” TV audience. This is directed by Mel Gibson who plays Scottish hero William Wallace, a man with simple roots who finds himself, leading the Scottish revolt against England in the late 13th century against the despicable King Edward the Longshanks (Edward I). Braveheart defines honor and nobility in a way we all accept, reinforcing what we've always felt, that true nobility is not the result of your birthright, but that it comes from the way you live your life. It's an excellent “rule to live by” that stays with you long after the film is over, and that is all too rare these days. There is a lot of people who take issue with the films Historical inaccuracies but it is not meant to be a historical text book, it is a drama, and a dam good one. Buy the dvd and watch it numerous times, it’s that good!
Braveheart (DVD, 2000)
After several years of political unrest, Scotland is invaded and conquered by King Edward I of England (Patrick McGoohan) in 1280. William Wallace (Gibson) is but a boy at the time, and witnesses the treachery and murder of both his father and brother. Taken abroad and educated by his uncle, he returns years later to find Scottland imprisoned by English Lords who have been granted sweeping powers and lands by the English King. One of these powers grants the right of Primae Noctis, the right of the lord to take a newly married Scottish woman into his bed for sexual liberties on her wedding night. When he returns home, Wallace falls in love with his childhood sweetheart, Murron MacClannough (Catherine McCormack), and they marry in secret so that she does not have to spend a night in the bed of the English lord. When an English soldier tries to rape Murron, Wallace fights off several soldiers and the two attempt to flee. But Murron is captured and publicly executed by having her throat slit by the sheriff, who proclaims "an assault on the King's soldiers is the same as an assault on the King himself." In retribution, Wallace and several villagers slaughter the English garrison and execute the sheriff. In addition, he goes to an English military stronghold near Lanark, and allows one of the villagers to avenge his wife's sexual shaming from an English lord, and sends the occupying English garrison back to England. Longshanks (King Edward), is enraged by this and commands his gay son Edward (Peter Hanly) to "handle the situation" in his absence. Wallace was betrayed by many of the Scottish noblemen at the Battle of Falkirk, where he was seriously wounded. In revenge he killed many of these noblemen. A sort of guerrilla war began at this time. After clandestine meetings with Isabella, the celibate wife of Edward's gay son, Wallace receives vital information about French involvement in the struggle on England's side. He and Isabella have an affair that leaves her pregnant with an heir to the throne; information she uses to exact revenge on Edward (the king) as he lay dying. In a secret meeting with Robert the Bruce at Edinburgh, Wallace is again betrayed by the Father of the Bruce and taken to London for trial. The English magistrate tries and condemns Wallace to death by torture and execution by being hanged, drawn and quartered, his body sections being sent to all four points of the realm, and his head placed on London Bridge. Having shown such courage in his death, the revolution is carried forward by Robert the Bruce with the eventual victory, and freedom for Scottland. Robert the Bruce was it's first King. This was an excellent film!
