| The best movie ever made!!!
This is simply the best movie ever made, containing all the elements a perfect movie should, even considering that every person has a right to his/her opinion. The soundtrack is amazing, the scenes are ingenious and the story is simply excellent! This is a story about a Scotsman named William Wallace (Mel Gibson) and his fight for the freedom of the Scottish people, from the oppression of the English ruler-ship. After seeing the death of his wife at the hands of an English nobleman, William Wallace (Mel Gibson) sets out on a quest for vengeance that quickly turns into a crusade for freedom for the entire "country". The extreme violence as well as the human compassion in this movie are overwhelming in its brilliancy.

Quotes

Narrator: I shall tell you of William Wallace. Historians from England will say I am a liar, but history is written by those who have hanged heroes. The king of Scotland had died without a son, and the king of England, a cruel pagan known as Edward the ...

Goofs

At the Battle of Bannockburn none of the characters seem to have aged a day since Wallace's execution nine years earlier.


Crazy Credits

On USA prints, the Paramount Pictures logo has a gray tint, while on international prints, the 20th Century Fox logo fanfare is muted.


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."
