Synopsis:

Mel Gibson's Oscar-winning 1995 Braveheart is an impassioned epic about William Wallace, the 13th-century Scottish leader of a popular revolt against England's tyrannical Edward I (Patrick McGoohan). Gibson cannily plays Wallace as a man trying to stay out of history's way until events force his hand, an attribute that instantly resonates with several of the actor's best-known roles, especially Mad Max. The subsequent camaraderie and courage Wallace shares in the field with fellow warriors is pure enough and inspiring enough to bring envy to a viewer, and even as things go wrong for Wallace in the second half, the film does not easily cave in to a somber tone. One of the most impressive elements is the originality with which Gibson films battle scenes, featuring hundreds of extras wielding medieval weapons. After Eisenstein's Alexander Nevsky, Orson Welles's Chimes at Midnight, and even Kenneth Branagh's Henry V, you might think there is little new that could be done in creating scenes of ancient combat; yet Gibson does it.

The only words I can find for this film are great words. I knew nothing of William Wallace before seeing the ad for this on TV. Everything about this film captivated me and kept my attention all the way through. Wonderful location photography of Scotland and Ireland mixed brilliantly with terrific music by James Horner. The performances by all the actors and actresses were absolutely first rate...even in the "minor roles" ie: Longshanks' son. Edward II. I long to see Catherine McCormack (Murron) in more films. She was excellent in her part too. Hats off again to all the performers both in front of the camera and behind it. (Great job both ways, Mr. Gibson!)

The best thing about Braveheart though is this: It is a WONDERFUL, interesting, captivating story of love and unbeatable courage and passion. If only we all were that determined to stand up for what we believe in.
