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.

From Amazon.co.uk

Mel Gibson's birth-of-a-nation epic Braveheart does for England what Spartacus did for Rome: every Englishman in this film is weak or nasty or a fool, or all three. Gibson plays William Wallace, the highland warrior whose fierce fighting spirit prompted Robert the Bruce's memorable victory over the English at Bannockburn. The film opens with boy Wallace losing his father and brother to the murdering English. Gibson's over-age Wallace then indulges in an unintentionally risible spot of teenage romance with the chaste Murron (Catherine McCormack), who is promptly despatched by yet another wicked Englishman. Gibson swings into action in some truly impressive (and horribly gory) fight scenes, culminating in the battles of Stirling and Falkirk.

When not separating English body parts, Gibson finds time for a clandestine romance with Isabelle, the Princess of Wales (Sophie Marceau), whom he manages to impregnate, thereby ensuring that the current British monarchy are all descended from him and not from William the Conqueror as they might heretofore have supposed. He trounces the weak and venial English at every turn, causing England's nasty Edward I (Patrick McGoohan) to cough and splutter a lot. Only treachery by the Scotch nobility (lowlanders to a man) stops Wallace's triumphant crusade. His final apotheosis, complete with pre-Passion of the Christ crucifixion imagery, posits Wallace as the redeemer of his country's lost independence.

The set-piece battles are a feast for the senses: a combination of the scale of Spartacus with the mud of Branagh's Henry V. But the continual use of slow motion in tandem with the gorgeous scenic backdrops and James Horner's cloying "folksy" music score of indeterminate national origin, enhances the feeling that this is a slick promo for the Scottish tourist board (ironic, perhaps, that much of it was shot in Ireland). Gibson and his Caledonian costars give the impression that a good time was had by all. --Mark Walker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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 calibre 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!

Most people know that most of the true facts in this film is wrong, but you can't take away how brilliant this film is, and if you can get past this, then this film is a joy to watch.

Alot of people complain how this film is anti-english, well i think mel gibson is, i mean look at the patriot, now that is anti-english.

It would of been good if scotland got there own independence, the english could try to invade them again. Only joking .

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.

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.
