  • Anachronisms

    Wallace's black, modern-day underpants can be briefly glimpsed before Murron gets her throat slit. He jumps up onto the roof of a hut while being chased, and they can be clearly seen.

  • Audio/visual unsynchronised

  • Continuity

    When Princess Isabelle visits William Wallace in the dungeon, she orders the gaoler (jailer) to leave the room, and he pulls the door closed slightly. This is viewed with an over-the-shoulder angle from Wallace. The shot then cuts to the Princess, then back to the over-the-shoulder shot, where we see the door is open farther than where the gaoler pulled it closed.

  • Continuity

    As Wallace approaches the fortress on horseback to avenge the death of his wife the camera shows his hand behind his head underneath his hair grasping the weapon he uses to hit the guard. As the angle changes his hand appears outside his hair and then underneath again as he pulls the weapon.

    In the scene where Murron has her throat slit, William's face is splattered with blood, then at her funeral his face is clean, but in the scene after her funeral his face is again splattered with blood.

  • Continuity

  • Continuity

    During the execution scene, the executioner, ready to behead Wallace, raises his axe over his head with both hands. The movie cuts from him. When the movie cuts back to him, he has the axe raised over his right shoulder rather than over his head.

  • Continuity

    When Nicolette is telling Isabelle (the Princess of Wales) about Wallace taking Murron's body to a secret place, Isabelle is sitting leaning forward. Isabelle then sighs, sits up straight and leans her head against the post that is to her right. Immediate cut back to Nicolette, and Isabelle is leaning forward again as Nicolette reaches out to hug her.

  • Continuity

    After William is shot by an arrow at Falkirk, he breaks the arrow, leaving the shaft in his chest. When he is shown lying back onto the grass, the shaft is gone, but then it returns again in later shots.

  • Revealing mistakes

    When Steven pulls the sword out of Faudron's chest and exits camera right, if you slow down the action you can clearly see that the sword is cut off almost to the hilt with two male nipples sticking out of the sword that were inserted into obviously two holes in a chest plate on Faudron to appear as though the sword was deeply embedded in his chest.

  • Revealing mistakes

    When the magistrate slit Murron's throat with the knife he wiped it off with the tartan William had given her. Before he wipes it off though, there is no blood on the knife.

  • Revealing mistakes
