This movie is just too good. Mel Gibson was pitch perfect both as a director and as William Wallace. From battle sequences to cinematography, from script( who can forget the FREEDOM speech) to the direction. Without a doubt it is a top 20 greatest movie ever made IMO. Oh highly rewatchable too

I don’t get the mass appeal for Braveheart... let me explain. It’s practically perfect in terms of writing, directing and acting. It’s something film buffs can have a blast with. But it’s a 3 hour, slow paced historical movie that’s heavily violent. A movie me and many other people who are serious about filmmaking could love but it isn’t something that SHOULD appeal to your average joe. That’s how good this movie is. It perfectly balances credibility for film lovers, violence for those who love violent movies and an engaging script with plenty of emoition for normal people! Mel Gibson was brave to make this film and audiences were brave to love it!

Some people who have nothing to do may criticize this film for its annoying "historical inaccuracy", but let us be honest, we recognize that the inaccuracy that only annoys teachers and historians does not pull the film down as much as the relationships of characters and much more covers it up. The characters are well developed throughout history.

This film balances the flow of the characters, as each of them has their own complex personalities, as well as the formed grip, moral complexities, and the theme fits well with the plot.

The aesthetic part, however, is the orgasm for the eyes and ears, with excellent cinematography showing the vast atmosphere of Scotland, even though it was filmed in Ireland. The soundtrack, by James Horner, is again, always phenomenal and perfectly captures the emotions that pass through you while watching this film.

In short, this film is a pleasant experience that is worth your time. I recommend.
