Product Description

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.

• Interactive content - 3 dimensional battlefields of the Scottish Rebellion

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The perfect gift for all movie enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

When I see quality films like this I have to wonder why all films aren't made with the same passion and spirit as this one! While the film played footloose and fancy free with historical facts is of little or no consequence when the end result is a high caliber Epic, of which many (myself included) deem to be a modern day masterpiece!

Those fight scenes are filmed in such an epic and brutal way that they will never be topped. Patrick McGoohan is brilliant as Longshanks, and it makes Scotland look amazing, despite most of it being filmed in Ireland. It has enough violence, humour, cheese, romance and film making skills to please everyone.

When Wallace gave his rousing cry of freedom speech before his men I swear a battle cry was welling up in my throat as my hand searched for a sword that wasn't there! At that split second I knew I would follow him into battle and if need be I'd die for him from the comfort of my easy chair!

Among one of the Greatest
Movies of all time, if but straying from historic accuracy, for me, it's a great watch.
It tells the story of 'William Wallace' who became a legendary 'Scottish' Hero during the
reign of 'King Edward 1st' known as 'Edward Longshanks' a tyrannical and oppressive
ruler between 1272 and 1307
'William Wallace' was born in 1270 and was executed by order of 'Longshanks' 23rd of
August 1305.....The charge against him - High Treason
After his Father and Brother were killed in battle, young 'William' went to live with his uncle
'Argyle'
During his years living with his uncle 'William' was taught many things including the art of
Combat.
When of age 'William' returns to the lands of his Childhood, there he re-meets the young
girl, now all grown-up of course that gave him a thistle at his Father and Brothers funeral
years past.
After seeing the injustices to both himself and kinsmen which included the mindless killing
of his now wife, 'William' was able to persuade his fellow Countrymen to follow him in an
effort to escape the cruelty dished out by 'King Edward'
Early on he led his men to many famous victories over the 'Kings' forces including 'Stirling
Bridge' in September '1297' after which 'William Wallace' was appointed 'Guardian of Scotland'
This post he relinquished less than a year on after a crushing defeat at 'Falkirk' where he had
been betrayed by his own.
His ultimate capture some 8 years later 'August 1305 in 'Robroyston'
This arguably one of the finest role's 'Mel Gibson' ever played (He also directed the Film)
Perhaps the film strays from Historical fact from time to time, however many of the incidents
depicted are based on true happenings.

Format: Blu-ray
William Wallace leads a Scottish rebellion against the King of England, Edward I. A stirring nationalistic epic that takes more than a few liberties with historical accuracy in the interests of delivering cinematic entertainment, but it is acted and directed with great gusto, creating a sense of myth and legend with its sweep and passion. As for Mel Gibson in the leading role, it wasn't so much his faux Scottish accent that let him down, rather it was some of his cheeky facial expressions that I'm sure I have seen in one or other of his Lethal Weapon outings.

As a Blu-Ray film this is far better than the standard DVD, so in the faint possibility that you have yet to see Braveheart, and assuming you have the necessary HD hardware of course, then this is surely the best version to watch. It isn't quite as good as the very latest high-definition films but it's nevertheless a worthwhile choice. The audio options included English/French/German 5.1 dts, and another with a commentary by Mel Gibson. Subtitles are in English, French, German, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish and Dutch. Spoken language options are English, French, and German. Special features include 'William Wallace's World', a re-run of the film with in-set maps and historical commentary about Wallace and the lives of the Scottish in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries.

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.
Davy Cairns.

Braveheart Blu ray review 08/06/09

Distributor 20th Century Fox - UK - Region A,B, C.

OK, first let me just state for the record, that Braveheart is a far more mainstream title than would usually be found reviewed here.

Sometimes though, you just experience a Blu ray disc that mainstream or not, you just have to write about and this is certainly the case in this instance.

This special anniversary edition is presented as a 2 disc release containing many extras but it is also worth noting that the film itself is the full uncut version, which marks the first time it has been released uncut in the UK.

Braveheart has been thoroughly remastered for this release and is presented in a top notch 1080p 16x9 transfer which looks excellent. No print damage is present and the film really looks brand new and not 15 years old.

The 5.1 DTS HD audio I have to say is incredible. Having never experienced the film like this, I honestly felt transported into the movie itself. From the absolutely stunning score, to the crashing sound effects and dialogue scenes, it all sounded perfect. Crystal clear, distortion free, this is quality audio at it's very best. Quite how this movie did not win an Oscar for best soundtrack in 1996 I'll never know.

As for extras, the first disc contains the same commentary track by Mel Gibson which has been present on the DVD releases, but there is also a picture in picture commentary titled "William Wallace's World" which once selected, also plays along with the film providing information and real facts etc... Disc 2 contains the usual trailers, interviews etc..
