You're not reading this because you want a review of Braveheart, the movie, you're reading this because you've already fallen in love with this spectacular film and you want to know how it looks and sounds on Blu Ray. The answer: amazing! This is one of the best blu rays I've had the pleasure of watching. The picture is crystal clear and the colours pop. The sound is glorious. Braveheart showcases everything that makes Blu Ray great.

I watched Braveheart again over the weekend and this is truly an excellent epic drama. But let's get one thing off the table first. I do not view this movie as an accurate portrayal of William Wallace or Robert the Bruce - nor is it what the rating is based on. Obviously plenty of liberties were taken with history. The movie is great because it's a good story well told.
Braveheart is about the war for Scottish independence in the 13th century and the historical William Wallace who led the initial phases of the revolt. Wallace is portrayed as a man of deep principle who wanted peace but wanted freedom for his countrymen more.
The large battle scenes and the leadership of Wallace are awesomely portrayed, as is the untenable position of Robert the Bruce. Bruce is caught between the Scottish nobles who prefer land, wealth, and favoritism from the British crown to freedom and safety for their Scottish brethren, and William Wallace, whom he could ally with to fight for freedom, but at the potential cost of his life, land, and status. Robert the Bruce's internal struggle was well captured on screen.
The only problem I had with the movie and story - but a minor one really - is the unlikely liaison between Wallace and the Princess of Wales. Even in a fictional account of William Wallace, this seemed like a terribly unlikely event. But in the scheme of things, this is a minor quibble.

Mel Gibson's movie, Braveheart did extremely well in the box office and had a huge following. It is an uplifting movie with a lot of positives. This includes music, cinematography, and a well crafted story. A lot of actors did a superb job. These include Patrick McGoohan (Edward Longshanks) and Sophie Marceau. Like other movies in the recent times, this movie suffers from a not-so-good screenplay.
The story is about a reluctant person who is driven by revenge to rise against the English and try to free Scotland. Since there is not enough written history about that time, Mel Gibson rewrites history. I guess that this is OK in a movie. The film has everything in abundance: romance, patriotism, passion, revenge, heroism, battle - in short, it cannot fail unless messed up.
Whether you like it or not would depend on a number of factors. It has too much violence, especially the battlescenes and the R rating is justified. William Wallace is no Mandela, Dalai Lama or Gandhi, he does not try to fight for ideals but is motivated by sheer revenge when his wife is murdered. So, he is not the quintessential leader. I guess it would be unfair to compare one century with another, but he does come through as a hard, yet passionate leader. Of course, you will not like this movie if you are English too, as it slanders them, especially about a person who is not well documented. One must admit that no one would like that. I guess morality is difficult with such movies. I have read no place about the "Prima Noctes" instituted by the English. Mel Gibson uses such historical license in his next movie, "Passion of Christ" also. So is reality, some of the battlescenes are difficult to believe, especially those of the Irish changing sides and so on.

Braveheart comes with an impressive list of credentials. It is regarded as one of Mel Gibson's best performances. It won five Academy Awarts, including Best Picture. The musical score by James Horner is one of the all time favorites. And it is one of the most popular movies of all time. Billed as an epic historical saga filled with history, love and battle, Braveheart apparently is Hollywood at its best. But is it really worth all the hype, and is the emperor really wearing any clothes?
First of all, the movie takes many historical liberties, deviating substantially from the real account of William Wallace. For instance, both the "prima nocta" legislation, and the suggestion that Wallace fathered a child with Princess Isobelle are fictional. But poetic license in movie making is not new, and can hardly be sufficient reason for trashing a movie - Braveheart never pretends to be a reconstruction of history. But it does pretend to be an epic of cinema, and its success in that regard is debatable.
The basic plot of Braveheart is quite simple: Man loves woman. Woman gets killed by English. Man gets angry and takes revenge on English killers of woman. Man helps lead Scotland to freedom from English. Notice something? While William Wallace is lauded for his efforts to free Scotland, the reality is that he is motivated more by personal revenge and anger over what happened to his wife. His character is ruled more by murderous passion, lust and revenge, than by politics; His actions are more the result of uncontrollable rage than the result of an intelligent desire to liberate his country. In the process, Wallace stoops to commit some of the same evils as his English oppressors.
