| Simply amazing
I remember seeing this movie for the first time in late 2003, and I was impressed. I saw it again last night, and I was even more impressed. The acting is amazing, and the ending was brilliant. For me, all my guesses were incorrect. Everything that happens in this movie in unpredicted. The last half hour itself was highly unpredictable, and it had a powerful message. When a scene was meant to be dramatic, they did a great job at it. I don't know about everybody else, but the ending did make me cry. The message the movie sent kept me thinking for a while. The amount of courage and bravery was inconceivable, there was barely any faults or anything wrong with the movie. For a movie of 1995, they did a great job.

I absolutely guarantee this movie to anybody who enjoys action and war with a bit of drama mixed in. One of the best, or maybe even the best movie of the 20th century.

Goofs

After Morrison's wedding, the English noble arrives to claim the right of Prima Nocta. When Morrison attempts to fight, his bride calms him by whispering in his ear. While whispering, she is clearly saying, "It'll be OK". The term "OK" was not coined until the mid-19th century.


Crazy Credits

With the exception of the title of the movie, there are no opening credits.


Alternate Versions

When Braveheart was first shown on US Broadcast television, over two nights, a longer cut was shown - with additional footage not seen theatrically:

  • In the scene where King Longshanks reads the note "Wallace has sacked York" and lifts the dismembered head out of the bucket, the American network TV version superimposes an unbroken shot of the back of the head, instead of the front as in the theatrical version.
  • When Cheltam gets ready to lead the English charge at the Battle of Stirling, Lord Talmidge yells to Cheltem, "What are you waiting for? Lead them!"
  • Before the Battle of York, Wallace tells his men that they will be more merciful than the English. They will spare the Women and the Children. To all else....No Mercy!
  • Wallace talks at the campfire about how the graves of his father and brother were desecrated by the English.
  • After the scene of Wallace in the Grove, Murron is captured and is sitting inside the Lord's keep and he is talking with her. He says to her, "What's your name girl? Don't you want to tell me your name? (He sits in front of her) You're married, you wanted to keep it a secret eh? I don't blame him, I'd want to keep you for myself as well."
