...Uncommonly passionate....A storm-the-castle spectacle... -- 4 out of 4 stars
Rating: 3/4 -- All reports on the death of the historical spectacle, however, have been premature. The genre is back with Braveheart, a film in which 3,000 extras parade and battle to re-create 13th century Scotland. Full Review
In the absence of satisfying moral dilemmas, Braveheart is an action film with an unhappy ending rather than the tragedy it would like to be. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- The battle scenes are certainly spectacular affairs and Gibson displays a masterful control of scenes involving thousands of extras. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- Despite some obvious excesses and a few notable flaws, [Gibson's] Braveheart is a brawny, heart-pulsing and intelligent work that bears worthy comparison to such big-screen battle cries of visionary warriors as El Cid, Spartacus and Dances With Wolves. Full Review
...This rousing, romantic adventure is laced with sorrow and savagery....With breathtaking skill, Gibson captures the exhilaration and horror of combat in some of the most vivid battle scenes ever filmed...
...A muscular and brutal medieval war movie....Marceau and McCormack both cut striking figures....Gibson's central performance is also strong...
Mel Gibson directs and stars in this Academy Award-winning epic based on the life of legendary thirteenth century Scottish hero William Wallace. Returning to his homeland following the death of an heirless king, Wallace (Mel Gibson) finds the political landscape precarious. Edward the Longshanks, King of England (Patrick McGoohan), has captured Scotland's throne and threatens the freedom of all Scottish people, as tyrannical policies instituted by the English plague the Scots. Initially, Wallace is content to stand by the wayside, yearning for the simple life of building a home and raising a family. However, when the woman he loves (Catherine McCormack) suffers a cruel fate at the hands of English soldiers, Wallace takes a stand against the new rule. With his fierce patriotism and determination, he gathers an amateur but passionately rebellious army. Although this makeshift force may be outnumbered by the English troops, their desperation and love for their land surpass any military maneuvers, as evidenced in the film's breathtaking battle sequences.
This Academy Award-winning epic, directed by Mel Gibson, tells the saga of the legendary thirteenth century Scottish hero William Wallace, known to his countrymen as Braveheart. Gibson stars as Wallace, who rallies the Scots against the tyrannical English monarch Edward I after he suffers a personal tragedy at the hands of English soldiers. Willing to fight to the death for Scotland's freedom, Wallace assembles an amateur band of warriors whose faith in freedom is stronger than any English army.
