Mel Gibson has engulfed the Scottish hero William Wallace. Stunning cinematography, an endearing score and brilliant screenplay has made this flick one of the most quoted. Unbelievable action sequences, exquisite props, splendid make-up and believable extras. Mel Gibson a performance that is so engaging, dramatic with a sense of humor. This made the film more realistic in today's CG or effects heavy era. Memorable thought provoking lines: William Wallace - "Every man dies. Not every man really lives." "Aye, fight and you may die, run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... our freedom!"
There maybe some historical inaccuracies according to some historians such as the cloths, characters, events, and names, still this movie entertains from start to end. An epic that deals with freedom, choices and loyalty to your upbringing. Braveheart will be talked about in the generations to come.
