  • Braveheart comes up short by beating the drums of human treachery and violence so loudly they become assaults. show more

  • Tempers moments of despair with deliriously romantic passages abetted by James Horner's traditionally lush score and photography by John Toll ("Legends of the Fall's" Oscar winner). show more

  • Offeris an exhilarating, and occasionally touching, experience that has viewers leaving the theater caught up in an afterglow of wonder. These days, heros like William Wallace are as rare as motion picture displays of this high, uncompromising quality. show more

    How can someone not enjoy this movie? It was one of the BEST movies of all time. It had everything you could ever want in a movie. Romance, battle, drama, comedy...amazing cinimatography. I'm still trying to figure out how someone who says the movie was amazing rated it as a 1 star. I think that is a mistake. It is clear of their knowledge of the movie states they thought it was and is one of the best movies of all time! True it doesn't reallly follow true history time line but, who cares really? It made me laugh it made me cry and to this day I'll watch it as a great stress relief! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!

    This is one of the best movie's of all time. I thought that the acting was so amazing. The characters were sometimes humorous and amazing. Also, it is one of the best movies ever made that is based on true events. Braveheart is a must see.
