From Amazon.co.uk

A stupendous historical saga, Braveheart won five Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director for star Mel Gibson. He plays William Wallace, a 13th-century Scottish commoner who unites the various clans against a cruel English King, Edward the Longshanks (Patrick McGoohan). The scenes of hand-to-hand combat are brutally violent, but they never glorify the bloodshed. There is such enormous scope to this story that it works on a smaller, more personal scale as well, essaying love and loss, patriotism and passion. Extremely moving, it reveals Gibson as a multitalented performer and remarkable director with an eye for detail and an understanding of human emotion. (His first directorial effort was 1993's Man Without a Face.) The film is nearly three hours long and includes several plot tangents, yet is never dull. This movie resonates long after you have seen it, both for its visual beauty and for its powerful story. --Rochelle O'Gorman

It is the late 13th century, and William Wallace (Mel Gibson) has just returned to Scotland after living away from his homeland for many years. The king of Scotland has died without an heir, and the king of England, a ruthless pagan known as Edward the Longshanks, has seized the throne. But by leading a ramshackle army determined to vanquish the greater English forces, Wallace's courage and passion unite his people in the exhilarating Braveheart.

Viewers can also access Picture-In-Picture video from renowned historian Fergus Caanan as he elaborates on the importance and strategy associated with each of the sites.

5.0 out of 5 stars An ode to freedom !!! 2 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
It is not so much the quality of this film that I would like to review,but the attitude adopted by some reviewers.
Being a "foreigner" I am not biased one way or another about the U.K. and its history.Quite the reverse.I am a great admirer of the ingenuity and the efficiency demonstrated by the English to built an empire with meagre means ,from a military point of view.Even more so by the way they administered the countries they conquered,using the infrastracture they created(legal system,transportation system,civil service,educational institutions,creation of local military, etc ) to ensure control through absorption of the upper and middle classes in the system and,therefore,minimising the probability of a massive uprise against them.
The means used were frequently cruel,but only to a point.Mainly used to make an example the "fate" of rebels,and thus scare others away from the idea of rebelling.The Brits never as much as contemplated genocidal processes,simply because they are counter productive.Other conquerors implemented them.History is full of examples.
I find it ,therefore,surprising that some reviewers conclude that the movie does not do justice to the English,as they are presented as mediocre fighters ,compared to the Scots.Apparently they have missed the piont entirely.Which is that the English were professional soldiers fighting in a foreign land for a meagre salary.The Scots were fighting for their freedom.There is a huge differenceH
Yet ,in a confontation of some duration ,it is the professional army that invariably prevails.Ideals and heroism win battles.Organisational infrastracture and strategic superiority win wars.
In fact, if somebody should be complaining about this movie it should be the Scots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray quality 3 Nov 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Well,
My Braveheart blu-ray arrived yesterday morning,and I watched it last night,no review of the actual film,EVERYBODY has seen it,I,m reviewing the blu-ray quality.
I read that the first 15-20 minutes of this film is so-so quality,and gets much better afterwards,well,I didn,t see so-so quality,I think this is a really beautiful transfer,and the sound quality is tremendous,you think you,re actually at the Battle of Stirling!!!
Whoever was behind this glorious transfer deserves all the plaudits going,I haven,t checked the Special Features yet,I would highly recommend this blu-ray,if you have seen Braveheart,this is the only way to watch it,it knocks spots of the dvd,if you haven,t seen it,jeez are you in for a treat.
I,m not comparing it to any other blu-ray,Braveheart stands on it,s own blu-ray quality,a MUST buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Scottish propaganda film in nut shell 26 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray
One of the most inaccurate film going , why is this
If you want to know about William Wallace go on wiki

A staggering incorrect thing was the battle of Stirling
Bridge, which should of been called battle on stirling bridge
Because that's basically what happened ,the English still lost
And lost badly The battle went for a bit too long and started
To resemble a slaughter . Edwards 11. Wife never met Wallace
But you needed a diversion and that was it saying that
Edward11 was a fop and she probably needed a diversion but sadly
That wasn't the case, The Irish didn't defect at falkirk, but the
Welsh were there although they did mutiny on the way there. The welsh
Bowmen were well renown for their excellent prowess with the long
Bow and were often recruited by the English during and after edward1.
Wallace was betrayed by his own country men.and executed in London
The films filming of the country is beautifully done .but in fairness
It was a propaganda film for Scotland and it worked The outside
World decided to look up their Scottish roots or claim some distant
Blood line the face is that England was fighting the welsh and Scots
And or I should say vice versa. Mind you the physical battles
May have ended but history wise the Celts(welsh,Irish,Scots still harbour
A grudge)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great transfer 2 Nov 2009
By The usual suspect TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
So we have the 15th anniversary edition of Braveheart in 2009 which was made in 1995....hmmmm?

Anyway, despite the historical inaccuracies that many moan about, Braveheart is still a great watch and now that they've done a great job on the HD transfer, there's no better time to enjoy it for the first time or to revisit.

I wouldn't say it's anywhere near the best transfer yet but it's huge leap over the DVD. Excellent audio through the DTS-HD Master too. I haven't seen the extra's yet but it does look like they are in HD too.

Audio: DTS HD MST Eng and French; DTS German
Subs: French, German, Danish; Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish and Dutch

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun 24 Feb 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Those that have yet to watch this would do well to take advantage of such a bargain. Whilst it is not an accurate account of time gone by it is enjoyable to watch. Braveheart is a film that won't bore you and will keep you on your toes. I enjoy it every time I watch it and can't help but want the Scots to win (despite being English!) I've got one or two issues with Mel Gibsons 'scottish' accent but its not that bad. Despite a long running time of 171 minutes I find this flies by. Don't be put off by the not so accurate historical facts. This does not hurt what is in all fairness an excellent film.
