Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Special Features

In his engaging audio commentary, Mel Gibson is deeply appreciative of his cast and collaborators (especially Oscar-winning cinematographer John Toll) and, of course, quite amusing when he wants to be. Gibson notes, "I fell in love a little bit" when he cast then-newcomer Catherine McCormack as William Wallace's ill-fated bride, and throughout his informative commentary, the actor-director conveys genuine passion for the story and a firm understanding of the period history that informed the entire production. The accompanying documentary, Mel Gibson's "Braveheart": A Filmmaker's Passion, is a 28-minute promotional film with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with primary cast and crew. Particularly interesting are sequences revealing the equipment required for the epic battle scenes, including air cannons for firing dozens of arrows, and costly mechanical horses created to simulate animal-related violence. Viewers will especially admire the considerable challenge of filming in Europe's rainiest region, Scotland, where inclement weather enhanced the film's gritty authenticity. --Jeff Shannon

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.

Have you not seen Braveheart? How can you not have seen Braveheart?! It's got everything, hilarious Irishmen, a love story, I'm pretty sure that was actually Mel Gibson's behind too. Plus the fight scenes are pretty impressive. Buy it, watch it, love it, stop there though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Braveheart (Special Collector's Edition) Aug. 13 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excellent movie. Mel Gibson is superb. Movie is great. So sad at the end, but the acting is just awesome. One of the best movies I seen in a long time. Alot of bloodshed though, but the battle scenes are excellent. There were times I was so mad at the English and the way they treated the Scottish people. It was a great movie worth seeing.

If this isn't your favorite movie than buy it on DVD (or keep your DVD version).... there is no improvement in Bluray version like I've seen when they extact info from older movies into the new high capacity Bluray format. You'll only be disappointed,...if your ok with that, buy the bluray. That's all I have to say about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM" Sept. 5 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
BRAVEHEART is what epic film making is all about. It has everything you could want in a movie, great battle scenes, a tragic love story, beautiful costumes, great scenery and a haunting score by James Horner. Gibson did an unbelievable job directing and acting in this film. The NEW Saphire Blu-Ray is outstanding. The lush landscapes of Ireland and Scotland really stand out in high-def not to mention the lovely Sophie Marceau & Catherine McCormack. The Dolby True-HD track is also very good. If you like old time Hollywood big budget epic film making like Lawrence Of Arabia, El Cid or Ben Hur then this is a must for your Blu collection.

PS. "EVERY MAN DIES. NOT EVERY MAN REALLY LIVES"

3.0 out of 5 stars Kill or be kilted June 30 2004
Format:DVD
A massive, sweaty, frequently silly epic that nevertheless delivers enough brute pleasure to pass a rainy afternoon. Mel Gibson, who also directs, plays Scottish national hero Sir William Wallace, who leads a 13th-century rebellion against landowning English nobles; vividly realized battle scences are the highlight. Grizzed Patrick Mcgoohan (of TV's "The Prisoner" and "Secret Agent") Kicks out the thespic jams as Edward I; Sophie Marceau plays his French daughter-in-law, who, as soon as she even learns of Wallace's existence, falls in love weez'eem. That's no surprise, since she's married to the young Prince Edward (Peter Hanly), a gay caricature whom Gibson makes the butt of some cheap homophobic gags.
