Rating: 5/5 -- The battle scenes are certainly spectacular affairs and Gibson displays a masterful control of scenes involving thousands of extras. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- All reports on the death of the historical spectacle, however, have been premature. The genre is back with Braveheart, a film in which 3,000 extras parade and battle to re-create 13th century Scotland. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Terrific in its primitive way. Full Review
5 stars out of 5 -- [B]loody, stirring...still sending a shiver up the spine.
Rating: 3/4 -- In addition to staging battle scenes well, Gibson also manages to recreate the filth and mood of 700 years ago. Full Review
...Uncommonly passionate....A storm-the-castle spectacle... -- 4 out of 4 stars
Rating: 5/5 -- Mel Gibson throws his whole heart into a role. No one acts with more conviction, and his errors are honest ones. Full Review
Mel Gibson directs and stars in this Academy Award-winning epic based on the life of legendary thirteenth century Scottish hero William Wallace. Returning to his homeland following the death of an heirless king, Wallace (Mel Gibson) finds the political landscape precarious. Edward the Longshanks, King of England (Patrick McGoohan), has captured Scotland's throne and threatens the freedom of all Scottish people, as tyrannical policies instituted by the English plague the Scots. Initially, Wallace is content to stand by the wayside, yearning for the simple life of building a home and raising a family. However, when the woman he loves (Catherine McCormack) suffers a cruel fate at the hands of English soldiers, Wallace takes a stand against the new rule. With his fierce patriotism and determination, he gathers an amateur but passionately rebellious army. Although this makeshift force may be outnumbered by the English troops, their desperation and love for their land surpass any military maneuvers, as evidenced in the film's breathtaking battle sequences.
This Academy Award-winning epic, directed by Mel Gibson, tells the saga of the legendary thirteenth century Scottish hero William Wallace, known to his countrymen as Braveheart. Gibson stars as Wallace, who rallies the Scots against the tyrannical English monarch Edward I after he suffers a personal tragedy at the hands of English soldiers. Willing to fight to the death for Scotland's freedom, Wallace assembles an amateur band of warriors whose faith in freedom is stronger than any English army.
