Product Description

In 14th century Scotland, the English nobles are staking their claim for lands and the Scottish throne. When William Wallace is left an orphan by the brutality of the English, he vows to make Scotland strong again. Wallace grows up into a paradox of a man - on the one hand very well educated, on the other a ruthless killer and barbarian. As an adult he succeeds in uniting the Scottish clans to fight the English oppressors, and is only undone by betrayal and greed. Mel Gibson directs this multi-Oscar winning epic, and also stars as folk hero Wallace.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'WILLIAM WALLACE' 'HIGHLANDS HERO' 19 July 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
For sometime now I've been meaning to re-visit this one, in my view, 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars HD Freedom. Great value. Caution! Spoilers. 2 Oct 2014
By A John TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
In this HiDef version, William Wallace, [Mel Gibson] dies quite a bit at the end in gruesome ways and eventually his spirit soars, finally free, when his hanky hits the ground.
It was all a bit too much for me, I confess after 2+ hours of alternating violent action and scottish lairdly dithering, and I sobbed into my own thistle embroidered hanky at the injustice of it all.
In 1995 this was a groundbreaking film.
Gibson took tropes from previous epic films, revenge movies, religious epics and musical comedy and combined them all together in ways that seemed familiar but new. I suspect Peter jackson has watched this film a lot.
Despite having seen it before many times I could not find a copy in the house [video in loft it turns out] so I got this Blu-Ray.
Good picture, [almost too good to hide the hair extensions] and the long shots of Scottish scenery look so good you'll want to invade the country yourself.
But even in this Blu-Ray version, the film was made in Ireland and the music is still more Uilleann pipes than Scottish bag pipes.
The soundscape though, is fantastic. You'll be looking around for hills in your living room.
It's so good that when the fellow gets the question wrong and the King throws him through the window, you can hear him land.
Overall a great Blu-Ray version of a must have film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray barbarian 13 Nov 2009
By OEJ & SKY TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.

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.
Davy Cairns.
