BRAVEHEART (Theatrical Release USA 1995)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.9|5.0 Starsìììì

Braveheart—a must see movie—tells the story of Scotland’s William Wallace (Mel Gibson) and his fight against King Edward the Longshank (Patrick McGoohan) of England. Mel Gibson not only acts the part of William Wallace, but he directs the film. The film contains sex scenes and sexual related content.

Storyline

William Wallace is a Scottish raider’s son who is raised by his Uncle Argyle (Brian Cox) after his father is killed. Wallace’s uncle teaches him to use his mind in academic studies and additionally teaches him the finer military arts. Wallace grows up speaking several languages, has literacy, displays good athletic ability, and attains excellent swordsmanship skills. He falls in love and secretly marries a childhood sweetheart, Murron MacClannough (Catherine McCormack). When she is brutally executed by an English garrison, Wallace leads a revolt against the English that eventually escalates to include war against King Edward the Longshank.
