Contents 1 Story 1. 1 Kingdom Hearts III 2 Design 3 Gallery Story [ edit] Kingdom Hearts III [ edit] When Riku and Mickey first venture into the Realm of Darkness in search of Aqua, they are overwhelmed by a Demon Tower which snaps the Way to the Dawn in two. Unable to use the broken Keyblade, Riku leaves it at the Dark Margin and returns with Mickey to the Mysterious Tower. There, Yen Sid provides Riku and Mickey with new clothes for Kairi and Lea before sending them to visit Merlin where they receive new Keyblades. Riku uses this Keyblade during their return visit to the Realm of Darkness, and throughout the final battle with the real Organization XIII. Design [ edit] Like Fenrir, Braveheart is designed after a dimple key for a pin tumbler lock, as opposed to the lever tumbler lock key designs of most other Keyblades. The blade is silver, with two parallel grooves running the length of the blade at the center; several circular intents are etched along each edge asymmetrically. The blade juts out and then cuts back in just before it connects to the guard, which is black and blocky. The Keyblade's Keychain is a Hidden Mickey token similar to that of the Kingdom Key, although of a darker hue and with defined separations between the "head" and "ears. The Keyblade is named after Braveheart, a recurring weapon for Warriors in Final Fantasy. It is most frequently the weapon of the Warrior of Light from Dissidia Final Fantasy. This contrasts with Riku's previous Soul Eater, named after a Dark Knight ability, and symbolizes his role as a Guardian of Light. Gallery [ edit] Concept art for Braveheart.

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Braveheart ou Cœur vaillant au Québec [ 1. Braveheart) est un film américain produit, réalisé et interprété par Mel Gibson, sorti en 1995. Il raconte de manière romancée la vie de William Wallace, héros et symbole de l' indépendance écossaise, qui à la fin du XIII e siècle, affronta, à la tête des clans écossais unis, les troupes du roi Édouard I er d'Angleterre qui tentait d'envahir l' Écosse. Le film a remporté cinq Oscars à la 68 e cérémonie, dont ceux du Meilleur film et du Meilleur réalisateur. Cependant, le film contient de nombreuses erreurs historiques. Résumé [ modifier, modifier le code] Au XIII e siècle, Édouard I er d'Angleterre, surnommé Longshanks (« aux longues jambes ») mais aussi The Hammer of Scots par les Anglais, occupe une bonne partie du sud de l' Écosse. Son oppression conduit à la mort du père et du frère du jeune William Wallace. Des années plus tard, après que Wallace a été élevé à l'étranger par son oncle, les Écossais continuent de vivre sous les lois cruelles d'Édouard I er. Wallace revient dans son village natal avec l'intention de vivre comme paysan et d'éviter de s'impliquer dans les troubles qui agitent le pays. Il retrouve son amie et amour d'enfance, Murron MacClannough, à laquelle il montre le chardon, soigneusement préservé, qu'elle lui avait donné quand ils étaient enfants. Les deux jeunes gens se marient en secret afin d'éviter le décret du noctis primae (droit de la « première nuit ») que le roi a énoncé. Plus tard, quand un soldat anglais brutalise Murron et tente de la violer, Wallace vole à son secours. Il l'aide à monter à cheval pour qu'elle s'échappe pendant qu'il retient les soldats. Mais elle est finalement capturée et le shérif lui coupe la gorge en public, en proclamant: « une attaque contre les soldats du roi est pareille à une attaque contre le roi lui-même ». En représailles, Wallace, bientôt rejoint par les villageois, massacre la garnison anglaise et tranche la gorge du shérif à l'endroit même où celui-ci a tué Murron, et avec le même poignard. Ainsi débute la quête de Wallace pour l' indépendance de l'Écosse. Quand Édouard I er apprend la nouvelle de la rébellion de Wallace, il charge son fils, le premier prince de Galles de l'Histoire, également prénommé Édouard, d'y mettre fin. Le prince Édouard est marié à Isabelle de France mais la délaisse car il est homosexuel. Pendant ce temps, Wallace et ses troupes multiplient les coups d'éclat et de nouvelles forces se joignent à lui au fur et à mesure que sa renommée grandit. Wallace inflige une cuisante défaite à l'armée anglaise envoyée contre lui lors de la bataille de Stirling. Il met ensuite à sac la cité d' York. Wallace cherche également à obtenir le soutien de Robert Bruce, solide prétendant au trône d'Écosse, mais celui-ci, malgré son admiration pour Wallace, est très influencé par son père, lépreux, qui le presse de soutenir Wallace officiellement tout en restant secrètement proche des Anglais. Devant l'ampleur que prend la rébellion, Édouard I er envoie la princesse Isabelle négocier la paix avec Wallace. Celui-ci refuse l'or, les titres et les terres qui lui sont offerts en échange de sa soumission et fait forte impression sur Isabelle, qui s'attendait à rencontrer un barbare assoiffé de sang et non un homme cultivé. Plus tard, apprenant qu'Édouard I er prépare une attaque surprise contre Wallace, Isabelle envoie sa servante le prévenir du danger. Wallace tente d'unir les nobles écossais contre les Anglais mais, sur le champ de bataille de Falkirk, il est trahi par les nobles Lochlan et Mornay. Les Écossais sont vaincus et Wallace découvre que Robert Bruce était dans l'état-major anglais. Il refuse néanmoins de le tuer et Bruce, saisi de remords, lui permet d'échapper à la capture. Wallace tue ensuite Lochlan et Mornay en représailles et mène désormais une guérilla contre les Anglais. Édouard I er fait tendre une embuscade à Wallace par ses tueurs, mais prévenu à nouveau par Isabelle, il déjoue le piège et fait brûler vifs les tueurs anglais. Il retrouve Isabelle qui tombe sous son charme et couche avec lui, découvrant l'amour que son époux Édouard ne lui a pas donné. Robert Bruce est désormais désireux de joindre ses forces à celles de Wallace mais, lors d'une rencontre organisée entre eux deux, le père de Bruce et d'autres nobles écossais les trahissent. Wallace est capturé et livré aux Anglais alors que Bruce renie son père. Wallace est emmené à Londres et condamné à mort pour haute trahison, tandis qu'Édouard I er est désormais gravement malade et proche de la fin. Isabelle, venue voir Wallace en prison, lui offre de s'empoisonner pour échapper à la torture mais il refuse. Isabelle apprend au roi, désormais incapable de parler, que l'enfant qu'elle attend, a priori le futur Édouard III d'Angleterre, est de Wallace, et lui promet de mettre un terme à sa lignée. Wallace subit publiquement une terrible torture mais refuse d'implorer la grâce du roi. Au lieu de crier « Pitié » pour que cessent ses tourments, il hurle « Liberté », ce qu'entend le roi d'Angleterre, et les deux personnages meurent en même temps, Wallace décapité à la hache et le roi sur son lit. Des années plus tard, Robert Bruce refuse de se soumettre à une armée anglaise et, invoquant la mémoire de Wallace, mène les Écossais à une écrasante victoire à la bataille de Bannockburn face à Édouard II d'Angleterre, assurant l'indépendance temporaire de l'Écosse.

Version québécoise (VQ) sur Doublage Québec [ 6] Conception et production [ modifier, modifier le code] Genèse et développement [ modifier, modifier le code] Le scénario de Braveheart se base principalement sur The Actes and Deidis of the Illustre and Vallyeant Campioun Schir William Wallace, un poème épique de Harry l'Aveugle, auteur du XV e siècle. Face aux critiques, le scénariste Randall Wallace s'est défendu ainsi: « Est-ce que Blind Harry a raison? Je ne sais pas. Je sais que cela parlait à mon cœur et c'est ce qui m'importait [ N 1] » [ 7. Icon Productions, la société de production de Mel Gibson, a des difficultés à trouver des investisseurs, même en mettant en avant Mel Gibson comme tête d'affiche du film. Warner Bros. est prêt à apporter des fonds au projet si Mel Gibson accepte de signer pour un nouvel épisode de L'Arme fatale, ce que refuse l' acteur. Paramount Pictures est d'accord pour distribuer le film aux États-Unis et au Canada, à condition que la 20th Century Fox se porte comme partenaire pour les droits internationaux [ 8. Le projet de Braveheart prend tellement de temps à Mel Gibson que Luc Besson finit par abandonner l'idée de lui donner le rôle principal du Cinquième Élément, malgré l'accord de l'acteur pour tourner dans ce film [ 9. Entretemps, Mel Gibson a fait appel à Terry Gilliam pour diriger Braveheart, mais ce dernier a décliné la proposition et il a donc décidé de le réaliser lui-même [ 10. Tournage [ modifier, modifier le code] Mel Gibson lors du tournage de Braveheart en 1994. Durant le tournage, l'équipe passe six semaines en Écosse alors que les principales scènes de bataille sont tournées en Irlande, avec la participation de membres de la réserve de l' armée irlandaise, auxquels il a été accordé exceptionnellement le droit de se faire pousser la barbe [ 11. Pour minorer les coûts, Mel Gibson utilise les mêmes figurants pour jouer les soldats des deux camps. Le nombre de figurants monte jusqu'à 1 600 pour certaines scènes [ 11. Mel Gibson a par la suite adouci les scènes de bataille pour éviter que le film soit classé NC-17 par la MPAA [ 12. Les séquences d'intérieur furent filmées dans les studios Ardmore, et de nombreuses scènes ont été tournées au château du Roi Jean à Limerick, qui fut déjà utilisé pour des scènes de Au-delà de la gloire de Samuel Fuller [ 13. Les scènes concernant le quartier général de Wallace sont elles tournées au glen Nevis [ 14. La ville fortifiée d' York est en fait le château de Trim, dans le comté de Meath en Irlande [ 15. Mel Gibson a dit s'être inspiré des grandes épopées cinématographiques qu'il aimait dans son enfance, comme Spartacus de Stanley Kubrick ou Les Grands Espaces de William Wyler. Dans le making-of du DVD, il raconte qu'il a beaucoup appris de George Miller et Peter Weir, deux réalisateurs qui l'ont dirigé au début de sa carrière. L'atmosphère celtique du film est en partie expliquée par les origines irlandaises de Mel Gibson [ 16. Musique [ modifier, modifier le code] La musique originale de Braveheart est composée et dirigée par James Horner, et interprétée par l' Orchestre symphonique de Londres. La bande originale est éditée en 1995 par le label Decca, puis un autre album, intitulé More Music from Braveheart et édité en 1997, également par Decca, proposait d'autres extraits et comportait des dialogues du film.

Mel Gibson a eu des démêlés avec des organismes de protection des animaux qui ont cru que les chevaux utilisés dans les violentes scènes de combat étaient réels, alors qu'ils étaient en réalité faux. Le film fut également pointé du doigt pour ses invraisemblances historiques. La véritable bataille de Stirling a pour élément principal un pont, lequel n'apparaît absolument pas dans le film, Mel Gibson ayant cru que les ponts n'existaient pas encore à l'époque [réf. nécessaire. La bataille telle qu'elle apparaît présente plus de ressemblances avec celle de Bannockburn, citée à la fin du film. De plus, William Wallace n'a jamais rencontré Isabelle [ 24. En 1305, année de la mort de Wallace, elle n'était pas encore mariée à Édouard II d'Angleterre (les noces n'ont lieu que trois ans plus tard) et n'était âgée que de 13 ans. Aucun Écossais ne portait de kilt à l'époque, en effet c'est un vêtement plus tardif [ 25] vers le XVI e siècle. La révolte des Écossais aurait, elle, débuté à la suite de la pratique du droit de cuissage par les seigneurs anglais, d'après le film. Dans la piste audio des commentaires du film, Mel Gibson dit qu'il a inventé cette pratique qu'il a dénommée: prima nocte. En réalité, il n'existe aucune preuve que cette pratique ait existé au Moyen Âge. Enfin, le film a été qualifié d' anglophobe [ 26. 27. 28. 29. 28. 30. Version Longue [ modifier, modifier le code] Une version longue a été réalisée avec une scène principalement allongée de la torture de William Wallace, censée représenter la sentence médiévale hanged, drawn and quartered et montrer toutes les tortures que cet homme avait endurées. Distinctions [ modifier, modifier le code] Le 25 mars 1996, Braveheart a remporté cinq Oscars sur dix nominations. Parmi les autres récompenses obtenues par le film, les plus importantes sont trois BAFTA Awards et un Golden Globe.

Les fans viennent de partout dans le monde pour voir les endroits en Écosse, où William Wallace s'est battu pour la liberté écossaise, et aussi pour voir les lieux de tournage en Écosse et en Irlande. Une convention Braveheart s'est tenue en 1997 à Stirling le jour suivant le vote de la dévolution écossaise et en présence de 200 délégués du monde entier, dont l'auteur Randall Wallace, Wallace Seoras du Clan Wallace, l' historien écossais David Ross et Bláithín FitzGerald d'Irlande qui ont donné des conférences sur divers aspects du film. Plusieurs des acteurs y ont également assisté, dont James Robinson (William jeune) Andrew Weir (Hamish Jeune) Julie Austin (la jeune mariée) et Mhairi Calvey (Murron jeune. Le film est considéré par Lin Anderson (en) auteur de Braveheart: From Hollywood to Holyrood, comme ayant joué un rôle significatif en affectant le paysage politique écossais du milieu vers la fin des années 1990. Dans le milieu de la musique apparentée au genre punk hardcore ou metalcore, où le public anime un pogo très violent, l'une des phases (souvent amenées par le chanteur du groupe se produisant sur scène) s'appelle le « braveheart » (ou mur de la mort (wall of death) ou encore le war. Il s'agit, dans la fosse, de séparer le public en deux: une partie à gauche de la scène, l'autre à droite, et au moment d'un top départ (souvent donné par le chanteur depuis la scène) les deux parties se ruent l'une sur l'autre avec violence. Cette appellation vient de la scène du film où les deux armées opposées se ruent l'une sur l'autre lors d'une bataille.

Film by Gibson  Braveheart, historical epic film, released in 1995, that was directed by and starred Mel Gibson and was loosely based on the story of 13th-century Scottish leader William Wallace. The movie was a surprise winner of the Academy Award for best picture. Mel Gibson in Braveheart (1995. 1995 Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation; After William Wallaces father and brother are killed in battle against the English, Wallace is sent to continental Europe to be educated. He returns to Scotland as an adult (played by Gibson) and marries his childhood sweetheart, Murron (Catherine McCormack. When English soldiers try to rape Murron, Wallace saves her but the soldiers make a second attempt and she is captured and executed. Wallace then leads his clan in slaughtering the English garrison, and he continues to fight to expel the English from Scotland, gaining increasing numbers of followers as stories of his exploits spread. He leads his outnumbered ranks to victory in the Battle of Stirling Bridge, and then he invades England and sacks the town of York. English King Edward Longshanks ( Patrick McGoohan) sends Princess Isabelle (Sophie Marceau) his sons wife, to negotiate peace with Wallace, but she is charmed by him and becomes his ally. She warns Wallace of an impending English invasion. Wallace seeks the support of the Scottish nobility in the fight against the English, but the nobles are reluctant. Robert the Bruce (Angus Macfadyen) is particularly torn. The Scottish fighters are crushed by an army led by King Edward in the Battle of Falkirk after members of the Scottish nobility betray Wallace. Wallace tries to kill Edward himself but is intercepted by a lancer, who proves to be Robert the Bruce. Robert then saves Wallace from being captured by the English. Wallace spends the next several years engaged in guerrilla warfare against the English. He later agrees to meet with Robert in Edinburgh, but Robert the Elder ( Ian Bannen) and other nobles set a trap and capture Wallace. During his long and agonizing execution, Wallace refuses to submit to gain mercy and instead defiantly cries out, “Freedom! ” In an epilogue, Robert the Bruce leads the Scottish to victory over the English in the Battle of Bannockburn. The movie, inspired by a nearly 12, 000-line epic poem about Wallace by Harry the Minstrel and filmed largely in Ireland, triggered an upsurge of interest in Scottish history, although it contained numerous historical inaccuracies and anachronisms. Critics especially praised the massively scaled and extravagantly violent battle scenes.

Braveheart (1995) Dir. Mel Gibson Historical Fashion: Wimples A Medieval garment worn by most women across Europe from the 12th to the 15th century. The way wimples were worn transformed over time, as fashion does, but it usually covered the chin, cheeks, neck, and head. It may have been brought back to Europe by Crusaders from the Middle East, because while it was considered to maintain a womans modesty, it protected skin from sun exposure. By the 15th century it was abandoned for other fashionable headdresses. mezzotamaki-deactivated20190103 asked: Okay so my friend recently wrote a thing about Scotland saying: Its probably a monthly occurrence to find him in blue paint, shirtless with a sword in one hand yelling “FREEDOM” At Arthur, who came to drop off some paperwork…" and she wants it drawn s o o o bad (I can't draw at all) so I figured I'd come to an Expert ask pretty please bc she's shy The English are too many.

This men and elfs are so brave! I sabella was said to resemble her father, and not her mother, queen regnant of Navarre, a plump, plain woman. This indicates that Isabella was slender and pale-skinned, although the fashion at the time was for blonde, slightly full-faced women, and Isabella may well have followed this stereotype instead. T hroughout her career, Isabella was noted as charming and diplomatic, with a particular skill at convincing people to follow her courses of action. Unusual for the medieval period, contemporaries also commented on her high intelligence. history + problematic relationships between parents and children (insp. x) Isabella of France She is an assortment of everything divine at once. The reign of her successor, Isabelle of France (d. 1358) wife of King Edward II (d. 1327) was strikingly different. Both were French princesses, educated in the subtleties of life at court and the complexities of politics, but Margaret used her position as queen to bind the family, while Isabelle used it as a platform for her own impressive ambitions and talents for rulership. Where Margaret was content to operate from the sidelines, Isabelle occupied a central position in the reign of her husband, who was in many ways her inverse. The marriage of Isabelle and Edward was troubled from the start and never really improved. Edward preferred his favorites Piers Gaveston and Hugh Despenser to his wife and, often, to his inner circle of advisers. His actions were divisive, and Isabelle leveraged his weaknesses in administration to her own advantage. Ultimately, her strong personality and over-reaching made her position untenable, but her reign is a good example of how kingship and queenship in a strongly patriarchal society operate best when the two are balanced in favor of the kings masculinity. After 1322, the instability of Edwards rule prompted Isabelle to take charge but, by dominating an anointed king, she upset social gender norms and set in motion her own downfall. Isabelles practice of queenship is extraordinary. In terms of its linkage of sexual politics, raw ambition and treachery, it speaks volumes about the interplay of masculine and feminine in the institution of monarchy. Isabelle had all the attributes of a king except the title. She never ruled in her own right, but she acted like someone who did. Before 1322, she was, in some ways, a conventional queen, supportive of her husband, bearing children and acting as intercessor on behalf of her subjects. But Edwards inept governance activated her competence and, on some level, her actions can be seen as simply a practical but brutal response to bad kingship. A queens sexuality was feared, and sources for the reign should be read carefully for bias and rumor, but it is clear that Isabelles femininity, desirability, intercession and unofficial influence reinforced the kings masculinity. It was unacceptable, however, for anyone to overpower the king. Isabelles influence was different from that of other royal favorites and was treated in a gender-specific manner. Edward was expected to rule his kingdom as a husband ruled his wife, and when he could not rule her, Isabelles undue influence over the king established a link between her and bad government, and constituted a double challenge to the natural order. By allowing her to influence his government, he was seen as not only less of a king, but less of a man. Her queenship was, however, far from exemplary, and her sons treatment of her was justified and quite fair. Her legacy extends beyond England, though, to her natal family in France which had reached the end of the line in 1328. Her generation of the Capetian family, which had come to power in 987, would be the last to inherit and govern France. Theresa Earenfight, Queenship in Medieval Europe (Queenship and Power) Yes!

A historically accurate depiction of William Wallace, “Freedom” was hand chiseled by Tom Church in 1997 after watching the film Braveheart. Immediately upon unveiling, Church and his statue immediately came under fire by critics, who claimed that the statue did not look like the historical figure William Wallace, but more like Mel Gibsons portrayal of Wallace from Braveheart. Others claimed that the statue itself looked utterly ridiculous, and was not worthy for a place at the Wallace National Monument. I myself do not see any resemblance to Mel Gibson, and obviously many simply cannot see the artistry, craftsmanship, and historicity of this grand monument. “Freedom” came under physical attack from historical revisionists, postmodernist vandals, and those who wish to erase or re-write Scottish history, resulting in the park placing a protective cage around the statue. Finally the Wallace National Monument decided to removed the statue in 2008, claiming they needed the space in order to expand their visitor center and restaurant. Of course, it was evident that the statue was removed for political reasons. The statue was returned to its sculptor, Eric Church, who remains in possession of it to this day.
Hey. this reminds me of my high school football field... Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong. This are the kind of videos which make Youtube precious. Someone just showing his/her beautyfull skills instead of stupid and not funny pranks and so called „social experiments“. FREEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOOOOM. Now tell me, what does that mean, to be noble? Your title gives you claim to the throne of our country, but men don't follow titles, they follow courage. — William Wallace A 1995 film directed by, produced by, and starring Mel Gibson, and written by Randall Wallace, a self-proclaimed Real Life descendant of the main character. Braveheart tells the extremely fictionalized story of the legendary Scottish rebel William Wallace and his revolution against King Edward the Longshanks of England, in which he battled for the freedom of Scotland and. well. got himself killed. This film is infamous among historians of being the apotheosis of movies messing up history, as it gets almost every historical detail wrong on purpose in this farbfest of a travesty of a film. Wallace starts as a simple farmer who only wants to live a peaceful life with his beloved wife Murron (Catherine McCormack) despite his father's death at the hands of the English. Unfortunately, he stops the rape of his wife by marauding English soldiers, and after the evil English magistrate executes her in retaliation, Wallace continues the spiral of revenge and soon the other villagers rise up as well. As the whole of Scotland is drawn into the rebellion against England, Wallace takes command of the Scottish army to kick ass. for FREEDOM! The cast also includes Patrick McGoohan as Edward I "Longshanks" King of England, Peter Hanly as a young Edward II, Sophie Marceau as Princess Isabella of France, and Angus Macfadyen as Robert the Bruce (later King of Scotland. The film won five awards at the 1995 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. It should not be confused with real history or the iPhone game or the leonine leader of the Care Bear Cousins. Or a song from a certain anime. This film provides examples of: open/close all folders A-F Actually, I Am Him: As William Wallace arrives at Stirling before battle. Wallace: Sons of Scotland, I am William Wallace! Scottish Soldier: William Wallace is seven feet tall. the Scottish Army laughs) Wallace: I AM William Wallace! Adventurous Irish Violins: Braveheart is in love with this trope; it's a wonderful example of its flexibility, for although the heroes are Scots-Highlanders (and an Irishman) the passionate strains of said trope in the musical score still flawlessly evoke the highland spirit of energetic playfulness, savage bloodlust, and energetically playful savage bloodlust. All Crimes Are Equal: An assault on the king's soldiers is the same as an assault on the king himself. All There in the Manual: The novelization written by Randall Wallace provides a more historically accurate depiction of the battle of Stirling Bridge (though Moray still isn't in it. It also explicitly confirms that Prince Edward's companion, called Phillip, is indeed his lover. Alone-with-Prisoner Ploy: Princess Isabella demands some time alone with Wallace in his cell, so she could pass him the sedative which he refuses to take. Anachronism Stew: The film depicts the medieval Scots as wearing both blue woad face paint (which was characteristic of the ancient Picts and is seen in general use no later than the Roman occupation) and kilts (which didn't come into fashion in Scotland until the 16th century. Annoying Arrows: Zig-Zagged. During Wallace's assault on the magistrate who murdered Murron, Campbell the Elder gets hit by an arrow, making Hamish stop to try taking it out, until his father hits him for his foolishness. It gets cauterized afterwards. Later, during the Battle of Falkirk, as the English gain the upper hand with their volleys of arrows, Wallace is struck by one, making him stop, but is well enough to pursue Longshanks' knight, Robert the Bruce. Anti-Cavalry: When the Scottish army encounters the English infantry, the Scots taunt them into attacking with heavy cavalry. As soon as the English are too close to pull back, the Scots drop their facade and pick up long pikes, which slaughter the horses. Anti-Villain: Robert the Bruce is definitely not a bad person, and really does seem to admire Wallace, but he is also weak and easily manipulated by his father, who convinces him to go along with the nobles' betrayal of Wallace at Falkirk. Seeing Wallace's face fraught with despair once he learns that Robert has betrayed him makes the Bruce realize he was wrong, and he saves Wallace's life while making a determined Heel–Face Turn in the process. When his father uses him to betray Wallace yet again, he makes it clear to his old man, in no uncertain terms, that he is now forever dead to him. Aristocrats Are Evil: The working class Scottish villagers get pitted against the snobbish, aristocratic Norman nobles led by King Edward. Armor Is Useless: The heavy armor worn by the English seems to provide no advantage whatsoever over the Scottish troops, who have almost no armor at all. Armor-Piercing Question: Robert Bruce protests that the nobles are afraid to commit to Wallace because their land and titles are too much to risk. Wallace's response: Wallace: And the common man who bleeds on the battlefield; Does he risk less? Arrows on Fire: Justified, as they are used to ignite flaming tar. Artistic License – History: Has its own page. Asshole Victim: The English magistrate of Lanark stands out among the English antagonists. Attempted Rape: Murron and the English soldiers. Authority Equals Asskicking: King Edward Longshanks is an utter dick, but he's a tough dick, kicking Wallace's ass at Falkirk. Badass Army: The Scotsmen, who stand up to an English army that outnumbers them and is better equipped. Badass Boast: They may take our lives, but they'll never take our FREEDOM. This has become a popular meme. Balcony Wooing Scene: In one scene the hero is at odds with his love interest's parents so he has to resort to throwing stones at her window to catch her attention. Played for laughs as he doesn't recognize that she already opened the window, thus his third stone almost hits her. Barbarian Hero: Mel Gibson's choice of costume design for the Scottish Warriors deliberately invokes this image, the better to emphasize "the courageous underdog takes down tyrants with superior technology and equipment" narrative; visually, they closer resembled the Celtic Warriors who beat back Julius Caesar's armies during the reign of the Roman Empire than actual Medieval Scottish Warriors (to whom in the Real Life 1300's metal armor was common even among the infantry) but in spirit they are all the more Mystically Heroic for it as a result. Battlecry: FREEEEEEEDOM. and "ALBA GU BRATH. Battering Ram: Wallace and his men are seen ramming in the gate to York. This gets an added Incendiary Exponent - if the door doesn't fall down, it can burn down. The Beard: Prince Edward is gay but must take a wife to continue the line of succession. Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Murron is backhanded by a soldier and knocked off a horse by a spear to the face, but she still looks pretty good. See also Gory Discretion Shot. Betrayal by Inaction: At the Battle of Falkirk, Lochlan and Mornay show up with their soldiers on the Scottish side, but once the battle has started and it's their time to charge, they simply turn around and leave the battlefield, hoping the Scottish army will be destroyed by the English. BFS: Wallace's claymore. It slices, it dices, it cuts warhorses down and then takes heads off with one swing. Which is one part of the film that was somewhat close to the historical record. Big Badass Battle Sequence: Both the Battle of Stirling Bridge and the Battle of Falkirk are epic ones. Big Good: William Wallace, of course. After his death, Robert the Bruce and Queen Isabella share the role for Scotland and England, respectively. Big Word Shout: Wallace shouts "FREEDOM. as his last word, until he is out of breath. Bilingual Backfire: The princess speaks with her courtiers in Latin, but Wallace knows Latin as well as French. Bilingual Bonus: Princess Isabella of France has conversations with her handmaiden in French, though it is mostly subtitled. At one point her handmaiden reveals to Isabella that she heard her husband is sending a new English army north to crush Wallace's rebellion. Surprised at how she knows this, the handmaiden then explains that one of the members of her husband's war council let it slip while she was having sex with him. Embarrassed, Isabella says he shouldn't have told her sensitive information like that in bed. The handmaiden quips that Englishmen don't know what a tongue is for (i. e. cunnilingus. As a case of Getting Crap Past the Radar, the TV edit doesn't leave out the line, it simply changes the subtitles to read "Englishmen don't know what a bed is for. but anyone with a basic high school level knowledge of French can fully recognize what she really said. Bittersweet Ending: William Wallace gets executed in the end, but his soldiers fight on and end up winning the war. Black Knight: William Wallace duels a character like this late during the Battle of Falkirk, complete with a Dramatic Unmask. The Blade Always Lands Pointy End In: Done in the ending sequence with Wallace's claymore. Blood Is the New Black: William Wallace is seen walking around after the battles with the enemy's blood on his face. Blood Knight: Stephen the Irishman. He seems to have only joined the Scots because he'll be able to kill Englishmen, not to help the Scots to get freedom. Bloodless Carnage: In the case of Murron's death. The magistrate clearly slit her throat, yet her wound is obscured from view and there is no blood on the knife. But this may be a goof. Bolivian Army Ending: The movie ends with Robert the Bruce leading his ragtag Scottish army against the superior English army. The trope is then subverted when Wallace (narrating the epilogue) explains that the Scots manage to eventually win their freedom. Brave Scot: All of the Scots who fight the English. Bulletproof Human Shield: During the rebellion against the local English garrison, Campbell the Elder is shielding himself from hailing arrows with a dead English soldier in front of him. One arrow still hits him in the chest. Bury Your Gays: The prince's male lover being murdered by King Edward by throwing said lover out a tall window right in front of the prince. In real life, Gaveston was Prince Edward's favorite, but it's not known with certainty that they were lovers. Gaveston was eventually captured and executed, but not the same way, and it had more to do with Edward's favoritism than explicitly with homosexuality. Calling the Old Man Out: Robert the Bruce does this twice to his father: first after standing alongside Longshanks at Falkirk, which led to a humiliating defeat for the Scots, and again after Wallace gets captured. The Call Knows Where You Live: And it's going to make sure Wallace doesn't try to avoid his destiny of fighting. Call That a Formation. Played depressingly straight. The Scottish infantry fought as disciplined pike formations, it was their lack of armour and cavalry which made them so vulnerable to the longbow. (Also, what wasn't in those days. They would not have charged wildly into battle, but advanced in disciplined rows in order to push back cavalry and infantry with massed ranks. The Scots didn't win the battles where they managed to close for battle with the individually more skilled English knights for no reason. Call to Agriculture: The movie starts with the hero choosing this trope: After his father's death and a Time Skip, the now-adult William Wallace returns to Scotland after several years fighting in The Crusades, heartily sick of war and with no interest in being drawn into talk of rebellion. He sticks to this proclamation until English soldiers murder his wife. William: I came home to raise crops and, God willing, a family. Catapult Nightmare: Mornay has a nightmare about Wallace haunting him, which makes him wake up in this fashion. Cue Or Was It a Dream. Cavalry Betrayal: Very literally, at the battle of Falkirk, when Mornay and Lachlan lead their cavalry off the field rather than charge in at Wallace's signal. They were paid off by Longshanks prior to the battle. Chekhov's Hobby: As a boy, William mentions to his uncle Argyle that he doesn't know Latin, to which Argyle replies "Well, that's something we shall have to remedy. As an adult, Wallace tells Murron he can speak Latin as well as French. His fluency in both helps him as he faces Princess Isabella and her adviser, as mentioned in Bilingual Backfire. Chekhov's Gunman: When the English show up to the wedding and the magistrate takes the bride for Prima Noctae, we see a brief shot of the guard who will later attempt to rape Murron and start the whole thing. All he does is leer at first. Childhood Friend Romance: William and Murron meet as children and become lovers later in life. Costume Drama: The film was Oscar-nominated for Best Costume Design but lost out to Restoration. Cruel and Unusual Death: Wallace was Hung, Drawn and Quartered for his troubles. This involved being stretched until his limbs dislocated, hung by the neck but cut down before unconsciousness set in, strapped to a table, having his innards reeled out, his private parts cut off and eventually when his suffering had ceased to be entertaining, having his head cut off. The corpse would then be cut into four and displayed as a warning to any other would-be challengers of the Crown. Somewhat distressingly, this is one of the bits that's pretty accurate to history. Concepts Are Cheap: Wallace speaks a lot about "freedom" and uses it to motivate and unite Scotland, but aside from "freedom from English Rule" he doesn't elaborate on what is so great about it or how Scottish rule would be any better. Scotland has the same system of oppressive nobility as England, the Scottish nobles are corrupt and out only for themselves, and the clans can barely keep from fighting each other. Crucified Hero Shot: For his execution, William Wallace is tied to a cross-like wooden block, that makes him adopt this pose. Cultured Badass: William Wallace is foremost a Barbarian Hero, but he is also fluent in Latin and French. Dan Browned: Despite the film's claims of historical accuracy, there are historical falsehoods from the opening narration to the final scene. It's filled with anachronisms, sentimental touches, simplistic historical reductionism and is essentially a mythical version of medieval Scotland with little relation to the events it claims to depict. Death Glare: There's no way to read that glare William gives the closest guy, moments before his rebellion begins, as saying anything other than a very emphatic and determined "I'm going to kill you now. Also William in Mornay's nightmare. Death of a Child: There's the hanged kid in the stable, a view that gives young William nightmares. Decapitation Presentation: After they sacked York, William has the head of the Duke of York cut off and sent back to the king in a basket. Defiant to the End: Wallace during his trial and execution. Despair Event Horizon: After Mornay and Lochlan betray Wallace and lead their cavalry off the field at Falkirk, Wallace gets an arrow to the shoulder, but musters a Heroic Second Wind to mount a horse and make a suicidal charge at the king. When he's unhorsed he pulls a dagger and unmasks the knight who knocked him down. When he sees that it's Robert the Bruce, all the fight goes out of him and he just lies down. This triggers Robert's Heel Realization and he helps Stephen get Wallace off the field. The Determinator: Wallace during his trial. Even the English crowd, who at first calls for his blood, eventually get sick of seeing the torture and eventually start calling out for mercy. He was defiant to the end against the English. Dirty Coward: The Scottish noblemen who sell out their own countrymen at the Battle of Falkirk in exchange for lands and title. Wallace gives several of them a very brutal payback for this. Disposable Woman: Murron dies to set the plot in motion. The Dog Bites Back: After Longshanks's Kick the Dog moment against his son's best friend and possible lover, Edward II finally snaps and tries to kill the old man in Revenge. Sadly subverted, though; Longshanks easily defends himself, then simply abuses his son even more. Done less directly during the final climax, where Edward very smugly observes his father on his death bed, with Longshanks lacking the strength to dish anything beyond a "Oh, you're so enjoying this, aren't you. Death Glare. Doomed Hometown: Seems to be the case at first, but then subverted as the townspeople rise up in rebellion and end up completely kicking the collective butts of the English soldiers who've been holding their town hostage. Doomed Moral Victor: William Wallace builds an army to drive the English garrison out, gets betrayed, captured, refuses to bow before the king, and is tortured and killed. But his spirit lives on. Dramatic Landfall Shot: The opening sequence starts with a camera flight over coastal water after which the rough Scottish mountain landscape comes into view. Dramatic Unmask: Robert the Bruce, while fighting on the English side. Dressing as the Enemy: Twice. First William dresses like an English soldier to help his wife get out of town. His efforts are to no avail. Later he and his allies infiltrate an English fort by disguising themselves as English soldiers. English Commander: I have dispatched 100 soldiers to Lanark! They will be returning now! Wallace: Were they dressed like this? Droit du Seigneur: Called prima nocte in this movie, instated by Longshanks to win support for the lords and to keep the Scots under their thumb. Morrison and his wife are two of many people who suffer under this, and when Morrison confronts Lord Bottom, the lord responsible for raping his wife, during Wallace's attack on the English garrison, he invokes "the right of a husband" by killing him. Modern medieval historians are irate that - without exaggeration - this film singlehandedly impressed upon the public consciousness that Droit du Seigneur was ever a real thing. Particularly glaring is that the very existence of prima nocte in the real Middle Ages had been thoroughly debunked for a century before this movie was released. *Drool* Hello: Before Lochlan is thrown on Robert the Bruce's dinner table from above, there is blood dripping onto the bread served. The Dung Ages: This wasn't the first work to feature the trope by any means, but the movie certainly popularized it and made it a much more common sight in period fiction. Epic Flail: How Wallace exacts revenge on Mornay. After losing his left hand at the Battle of Stirling, Campbell the Elder spends the rest of the movie using a flail. Et Tu, Brute. Wallace when Robert the Bruce is unmasked at Falkirk. Every Man Has His Price: Longshanks bribes Wallace's cavalry into deserting the field at the battle of Falkirk. Everyone Has Standards: The crowd of English townsfolk eagerly howl and cheer at Wallace's impending execution by evisceration. Wallace can receive the mercy of having his throat cut to quickly end his suffering at any time if he will simply confess that Edward I is the rightful king of Scotland, but he refuses. His evisceration slowly continues - to the point that the English crowd's laughter dies in their throats, and they become so horrified at the actual spectacle that the entire crowd starts shouting and begging to give him mercy and end his suffering. Everything's Louder with Bagpipes: Irish pipes though, not Highland. Evil Chancellor: Robert the Bruce's father is this to Robert until the latter calls him out on this. Evil Counterpart: While evil may be a bit strong in this case (ineffectual is perhaps more appropriate) Prince Edward II essentially serves this role to Robert the Bruce in how both are young men with the (at least apparent) destiny to become king and are held within the grip of a controlling father. Evil Old Folks: Edward the Longshanks. After he throws his son's councilor/lover out a window, the enraged prince takes out a knife and attacks him. Longshanks effortlessly dodges the attack and delivers a massive pimp-slap that sends his son to the floor. Expecting Someone Taller: At the Battle of Stirling: Scottish Soldier #1: It's William Wallace. Scottish Soldier #2: Can't be. Not tall enough. Eye Take: Robert the Bruce's eyes widen creepily when he sees Lochlan with a slit throat lying on his dinner table. Famous Last Words: FREEDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMM! Fighting Irish: Wallace's most eagerly violent soldier is an Irishman who joined the campaign not for the sake of freedom, but for the chance to kill Englishmen. He's also insane, or deeply religious with a sick sense of humor. A little from column A, a little from column B! Foreshadowing: Mad Stephen does it best at the Battle of Stirling: Stephen: The Lord tells me he can get me out of this mess, but he's pretty sure: you're fucked. Friends All Along: The Scottish and Irish troops. Longshanks: Irish. G-L Genius Bruiser: Wallace is a combination of Barbarian Hero and Cultured Badass. Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death. Wallace and his men are willing to die for their freedom. William Wallace: And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take. OUR FREEDOM. Going Commando: The Scottish warriors are naked under their kilt which they demonstrate when mooning the English forces. Go Out with a Smile: William Wallace smiles during his final moment. He sees the spirit of his dead wife among the crowd smiling at him as he is being brutally tortured to death. Gorn: Mostly averted. though in the original cut, Wallace's execution by disemboweling was this. Gory Discretion Shot: When the magistrate cuts Murron's throat, it's not explicitly shown. The camera cuts to a close-up of her eyes as they first widen, then slowly droop as she bleeds out. In contrast, when Wallace does the magistrate, it's shown in vivid detail. We do not see the moment when Wallace's head is cut off. The ax moves in slow motion, and we know that he's dead when his hand opens. Gossip Evolution: By the time of the Battle of Stirling in Braveheart, William Wallace could shoot fireballs from his eyes and lightning from his arse. Later we hear the word spreading about Wallace having killed 50 men single-handedly, which turns into 100 men after some relays. Gratuitous Foreign Language: ALBA GU BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATH. sort of counts. That is the old Scottish language, but the film is in English. Heal It with Booze: William's childhood pal Hamish and his father Campbell have just helped him defeat the local English lord, but Campbell sustained an arrow wound in the process. He's blind drunk on whisky awaiting his son and friends helping him to Heal It with Fire. After a comedy moment where first one, and then a second clansmen say "Here, you do it, cauterise the wound with the poker] I'll hold him down. Campbell asks Hamish to pour some on the wound first: Pour it straight in the wound, boy. I know it seems like a waste of good whiskey, but indulge me. Heal It with Fire: Hamish's father needs to have a wound cauterized with a red hot iron after receiving an arrow to the shoulder. In a nice nod to how such a thing might have played out in those days, whisky gets a lot of use both as an anesthetic and disinfectant. Heel–Face Revolving Door: Robert the Bruce goes from neutral to allies, then betrays Wallace at the Battle of Falkirk, only to come to his senses again after a My God, What Have I Done? moment. Eventually, he becomes an Unwitting Pawn to Wallace's capture. Heroic BSoD: Happens to Wallace after he finds out who betrayed him at the Battle of Falkirk. His previous anger instantly vanishes and he goes numb. Bruce himself gets one later on when his father's machinations lead to Wallace's betrayal and capture. The Hero Dies: Wallace himself at the end. Hidden Weapons: When pretending to hand himself over to the local English garrison, Wallace hides a flail behind his back which he then pulls out to start his Roaring Rampage of Revenge. Historical Badass Upgrade: William Wallace was either this or a downgrade, depending on your point of view. The real William Wallace really was close to 7 feet tall for a start, and did quite a bit of the stuff he does in the film (not all of it, but it does cut out other badass feats as well. Of course, he was also a textbook example of The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized and Would Hurt a Child, but being a bastard doesn't make him not a badass. Historical Beauty Update: The real Longshanks had a drooping eyelid and a lisp. The film removes these traits, presumably to make Longshanks more formidable. Historical Hero Upgrade: Wallace is made a lot more important than Robert Bruce, and the third key figure in the war, Bishop William de Lamberton, was cut out altogether. Another character cut out was Andrew de Moray, another Scottish noble who died after the battle of Stirling Bridge. Some historians have argued that his contribution to the war was just as important and more successful than William Wallace's. The real Wallace was a son of minor nobility, and not only was he not a Highland barbarian Still Fighting the Civil War of the Picts against Romans, he was a Lord with tenants, serfs and the works. In real-life the Scots pre-emptively attacked the English and Wallace invaded England sacking and pillage villages and attacking English peasants and serfs along the way. Surprisingly, the future Queen Isabella " the She-Wolf " of France got this one as well. Scots understandably take a dim view of him, as do the Welsh with equally good reason, but the English quite correctly regard him as one of their best kings. He was also an excellent husband and father. Whether or not he knew of Edward II's proclivities, he certainly didn't kill any of his male lovers. Of course there's one undoubtedly villainous action that Longshanks is associated with, that curiously gets no mention in the film, his raging anti-semitism which led him to expel all Jews from England, something that would easily paint him as a bad guy to modern audiences instead of the invented nastiness of Droit du Seigneur, but presumably Gibson didn't find that sufficiently nasty. Prince Edward gets a strange form of this. Edward II is generally regarded as a brave and athletic man who became a mediocre king and was widely rumored to be in homosexual relationships with his extremely close male favorites. In the film, he's made into a Camp Gay Sissy Villain. Hollywood History: The film is full of historical misconceptions beyond those intentional rearrangements mentioned under Artistic License – History: Blue body paint (Woad) for battles had stopped being used around the end of the Roman era - roughly 800 years before the events of the film. While the movie took great care to depict several groups all dressed alike in their representative tartans (the plaid pattern on the kilts) the use of clan tartans and any organized rules for kilts and patterns was a Victorian invention, much later than the time of the movie. Unlike the Iron Age wasteland depicted in the film, Scotland at the time was the destination of many trade routes, and Scots had access to luxuries such as silk, spices and glass. Scotland had lavish cities and towns just like England, but the film depicts all of them living in filthy mud hovels. While it is true that one of the earliest records of the "schiltron" a circular formation of pikemen wielding extremely long anticavalry spears) was the Battle of Stirling Bridge, putting up a wall of shields and long spears is a tactic dating back to Roman times, and pikes date back to prehistoric times. Wallace hardly invented either. Edward I and the members of his court spoke French, not English; this could be written off as part of the Translation Convention, except that the Queen and her lady are shown speaking French. Evidence overwhelmingly points to Primae noctis or Droit du Seigneur — the right of a Lord to take the virginity of serf maidens within his lands — being a fabrication of the modern era. Medieval marriage was controlled by The Church, which has typically championed marital fidelity. If any lord tried to claim the "right" to rape another man's wife, the least he could expect was excommunication, along with an almost certain peasant revolt (as Machiavelli wrote in The Prince a ruler could get away with a lot of things, but taking people's wives wasn't one of them. So, it's not that some lords didn't take advantage of their power to rape peasant women - they did. The claim that lords believed they had a legal right to it is almost certainly a fabrication. Word of God on the DVD commentary notes that they did this to make the English more villainous and they were well aware it was never a real thing. Bagpipes were not outlawed in 13th-century Scotland. They were outlawed in the 18th century after Scotland and England had become one country (the UK) and the north of Scotland, the Highlands, had been the breeding ground of several 'Jacobite' rebellions/mini-Civil Wars. The Battle of Bannockburn is shown as the Scotts unexpectedly attacking an English force that's only there as a formality while Robert swears his fealty to Edward II. The actual battle was the English trying to lift the siege of Sterling Castle several years into Robert's rebellion, long after they had both claimed their respective thrones. Hollywood Tactics: Longshanks' tactics are extremely wasteful and seem more designed to show what a bastard he is than to actually be effective. He doesn't use his archers against the Scots at first, preferring to send the Irish conscripts because "Arrows cost money. the dead cost nothing. But then he fires his arrows anyway, after his troops are engaged in melee, guaranteeing friendly fire. Why. We Have Reserves. The Scots aren't innocent of it either, with their complete lack of massed pike or any real discipline whatsoever. Oddly enough, this winds up making the English look more competent than they were in at least one case. The Battle of Stirling in the movie features the two sides launching berserker charges at each other on an open field with neither side having polearms, with the Scots somehow winning a decisive victory in close combat despite wearing almost no armor and being outnumbered against the heavily armed and armored English troops. The historical Battle of Stirling Bridge saw the English launching a frontal assault across uneven ground and a narrow bridge against a Scottish pike wall. Also in the real battle, Scots were wearing armor similar to what the English troops had. When foot soldiers abandon their formation to intermingle in a chaotic melee with massive casualties on both sides, it's almost always Hollywood Tactics. Before modern warfare, troops stayed in close order, forming pike blocks, shield walls, and so on where the men could support one another and prevent all-out carnage. The film treats using a hedge of long spears against horsemen as a revolutionary idea. It certainly wasn't. The idea goes back to antiquity. What was new was the Scottish schiltrons formations. These were circular formations that presented pikes out toward the enemy in 360 degrees, rather like a hedgehog. At Falkirk, Edward I called back his knights before they took too many losses and just had his archers open fire on the schiltrons. Defenseless against bowmen, the schiltrons collapsed quickly afterward. Charging and storming castles was always a last resort and a very good way to take massive casualties. Attacks on fortifications were almost always long, drawn-out sieges in that era. Wallace never sacked York, and he would never have just rushed his men with practically no siege gear at a castle with that many defenders as shown in the film. Boiling oil? No. Oil was expensive and hard to keep hot. Sand and water are cheaper and just as effective. Try to imagine how quickly heated sand would get through your armor. Other good options that were used include rocks, burning sulfur, and even beehives. Incurable Cough of Death: King Edward the Longshanks, though in reality he lived two years beyond Wallace's death. Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Prince Edward. He tries so hard to meet his father Longshanks' expectations, but he never does. Inertial Impalement: Invoked when the Scots counter an English cavalry charge by getting them to crash into a wall of crude pikes. Invulnerable Horses: Actually averted. The depiction of horse wounding (mostly at the Battle of Stirling) was so realistic that the film was actually investigated to see if animal cruelty had occurred (don't worry, it was all dummy horses. I Surrender, Suckers: How William Wallace starts his Roaring Rampage of Revenge. I Take Offense to That Last One. When Princess Isabella's adviser says, in Latin, about Wallace "He's a bloody, murdering savage. And he's telling lies. Wallace immediately replies in Latin "I never lie. But I am a savage. Karma Houdini: Lord Craig manages to escape Wallace's retribution for the betrayal at Falkirk, and even helps sell him out to the English at the end. The only form of comeuppance he gets is Robert Bruce dashing his hopes for another Royal kickback by choosing to fight at Bannockburn. Karmic Death: The English lord who executes Murron by slitting her throat has his own throat slit by Wallace, using the same exact knife. Longshanks, wanting to at least spend his own deathbed enjoying Wallace's torture-execution, instead dies immediately before him via painful and scary Heart Trauma caused by his final yell of, FREEDOM. Kick the Dog: Longshanks repeatedly kicks the dog in his treatment of Scotland and throws his son's best friend (and implied lover) out the window. Also Longshanks' decision to have the archers fire at the battleground with no regard to his own men. Know When to Fold 'Em: The last mook protecting the magistrate, upon realising he was hopelessly outnumbered gives up with a Sword Plant. Lecherous Licking: One of the magistrate's men is all over Murron with his tongue when he seizes her in a hut. The Lost Lenore: Murron, see also Disposable Woman above. Not all disposable women are also Lost Lenores but Murron fits this trope as her relevance to the story doesn't end with her death. Wallace clearly still loves and mourns her, and she appears in dream sequences and flashbacks. Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: The film features a scene in which Scottish soldiers hide under their shields during an arrow barrage. M-R Made of Iron: Campbell the Elder is shot with an arrow, has his hand chopped off, takes an ax to the stomach, and still keeps fighting. That last one finally does him in. Man in a Kilt: Although plaid kilts were introduced only three centuries later, and the Scottish didn't wear them until much later than that (and even then, they were typically saffron or brown, not plaid. Also, no Scotsman of any pre-industrial era would have worn enough cloth to clothe a family to a battle, where it could get cut up and bled on. That much cloth would take the average subsistence-farmer at least a decade of scrimping and saving to buy - cloth was expensive as all get out before extensive inter-continental trade and mechanized spinning and weaving. Flashing and mooning was a combat tactic, however. Manly Tears: After betraying Wallace on the battlefield of Falkirk, Robert the Bruce sheds a tear when giving his Heel–Face Turn speech to his father. Man on Fire: Some Scottish warriors are set on fire by arrows from the English defenders during the battle of York. Market-Based Title: In Taiwan, Braveheart is translated as Mel Gibson's "The True Colors of A Hero" Ying Xiong Beng Se) which is also the Original Mandarin Title for A Better Tomorrow, another tragedy of Love, Friendship, Courage and Honor, directed by John Woo. Meaningful Funeral: Murron gets one with the whole village attending and lots of crying. Meaningful Look: The wedding, showing how much you can do with a few glances. Watch Prince Edward, his lover Phillip, Princess Isabelle, and King Edward Longshanks. The Prince is not at all attracted to the Princess and would likely much rather run away than go through with the ceremony, or at least replace Isabelle with Phillip. King Edward is aware of his son's sexuality, holds his son in contempt, and absolutely despises Phillip. Isabelle, meanwhile, has no desire to be a part of this and feels trapped. She has no idea what to make of Prince Edward and is intimidated by King Longshanks. Phillip is trying to offer some silent support to Prince Edward, and that royally irks King Edward. All of this is conveyed to the audience with a few meaningful glances, a line of voice-over that hints that Longshanks may try to bed his soon-to-be daughter in law, some unfortunate gay visual coding, and an awkward kiss. The scene lasts seconds. Memento MacGuffin: William's ceremonial cloth that he got from his wife. He carries it with him and when it gets lost on the battle ground, Robert the Bruce picks it up and returns it to William. Also the thistle, that young Murron gave William at his father's burial. He has kept it pressed in a book. Memetic Badass: William Wallace becomes one In-Universe; promptly Lampshaded: William Wallace: Yes, I've heard. Kills men by the hundreds. And if HE were here, he'd consume the English with fireballs from his eyes, and bolts of lightning from his arse! The claim of Wallace being seven feet tall seems ridiculous and standard badass exaggeration since Mel Gibson stands around 5'9" and rather cut. But the real Wallace was described as a giant of a man, standing somewhere between 6'7" and 6'10" and built like a truck. While mildly common nowadays, this would have been 13 to 18 inches taller than the average man of the time and seeing someone that size would likely be a once in a lifetime event. Mexican Standoff: When Stephen the Irishman meets Wallace and his men in the forest, there is a moment where both parties have their knifed/swords drawn and pointed at the opposition's throat. The Middle Ages: The setting is the early 14th century, the High Middle Ages A Minor Kidroduction: Writer Randall Wallace initially planned to start the story with William Wallace as an adult and added the prologue of his childhood only as an afterthought. Mugged for Disguise: Near the beginning of the film, Wallace steals the uniform off an English soldier in order to get his wife out of town. Later, Were they dressed like this. Multi-Melee Master: In addition to his iconic claymore, William Wallace is seen to be proficient with a huge mallet, a flail (both ball-and-chain and hinged stick variants) a dagger, a pike, a deer's antler, a warhammer, an ax, and rocks of various shapes and sizes. Multi-Ranged Master: His uncanny accuracy with thrown rocks is a plot point, and he is also proficient with a bow. My God, What Have I Done. Robert the Bruce suffers from this after seeing Wallace's face at the Battle of Falkirk. Never Trust a Trailer: The film's theatrical trailer shows a scene where Wallace is telling Hamish that they'll be different from the English by sparing women and children. This scene does not appear in the final cut of the movie. Nice Job Fixing It, Villain. When the Scots struggle to ram open the gates to York, the English help them unwittingly. First, they pour boiling tar on the attackers and then they shoot Arrows on Fire at them. The arrow sets the tar-soaked ram on fire which in turn sets the gate on fire. Problem solved for the Scots. Nightmare Sequence: Mornay's dream of Wallace charging at him out of a firestorm, screaming, and replete in blue warpaint. It then becomes horrific for the viewer given the way Mornay is then dispatched straight afterwards. No Escape but Down: After Wallace rides into Mornay's bedroom to give him an Epic Flail in the face, his escape route leads him out of the door down into the water. Obi-Wan Moment: When Campbell the Elder dies, he declares to be a happy man and that he lived long enough to live free. Then he dies with his son sobbing over him. Oh, Crap. When Wallace and his crew take a fort disguised as English soldiers: Lord Bottom: I have dispatched a hundred soldiers to Lanark! They will be returning now! Wallace: indicating his disguise) Were they dressed like this? Lord Bottom: eyes widen* The English commander's face at the end of the movie, when he realizes Robert the Bruce and his army are not coming to pay them homage, but are rather charging their line. One Mario Limit: Wallace's wife was really named Marian, but it got changed to Murron to avoid confusion/comparison with Robin Hood 's love interest Maid Marian. Onrushing Army: There are Screaming Warrior charges, sure, but there's also archers, cavalry, and Irishmen deployed in various battles before they get to that bit. Or Was It a Dream. After he betrays William Wallace at Falkirk, the Scottish Noble Mornay has a nightmare in which Wallace is riding towards him, fire blazing all around and the most terrifying Death Glare ever. He wakes up, relieved that it was just a dream, but moments later Wallace actually rides into his bedroom and gives Mornay a face full of flail. Pimped-Out Dress: This film avoids Gorgeous Period Dress by averting the fancy clothes, even for the royals. Although Isabella does get some fancy dresses. Playing Gertrude: James Cosmo, who plays Campbell the Elder, is only seven years older than Brendan Gleeson, who plays his son Hamish. Plot-Triggering Death: Murron's death is kicking off a Scotland-wide rebellion after William's Roaring Rampage of Revenge against an English oppressor. The Power of Hate: After Robert the Bruce disowns his father, the Elder Robert the Bruce, and wishes for him to die, the Elder Bruce says he's now ready to be king now that he knows hate (oddly enough, in addition to saying this Palpatine-esque line, the Elder Bruce also looks unnervingly like Emperor Palpatine. The Younger Bruce answers, in a calm example of Shut Up, Hannibal! that his hate will die with the elder Bruce. Precision F-Strike: Stephen: The almighty says "Don't change the subject, answer the fucking question" Produce Pelting: When Wallace is rolled in for his execution, the raving crowd throws vegetables at him. A Protagonist Shall Lead Them: William Wallace, after the call found him. Rain of Arrows: The English use this tactic repeatedly with Welsh longbowmen. In the Battle of Stirling the Scots held their ground and put their shields up, but that didn't completely prevent casualties. In Falkirk, it's used with deadly effectiveness, efficiently shredding the Scottish army (though the English took heavy casualties as well) and wounding Wallace. Rated M for Manly: Historically inaccurate, but still awesome nonetheless. Refusal of the Call: Wallace refused to fight the English at first, preferring to raise a family and live a quiet farming life. Roaring Rampage of Revenge: What happens to Wallace after finding out Murron was killed by English soldiers. Rose-Tinted Narrative: Lampshaded in the opening narration, as Robert Bruce says "Historians in England will say I am a liar. But history is written by those who have hanged heroes. Not one part of it is correct: Scotland 1280 AD. 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 Longshanks, claimed the throne of Scotland for himself. Scotland's nobles fought him and fought each other over the crown. So Longshanks invited them to talks of truce — no weapons, one page only. Among the farmers of that shire was Malcolm Wallace, a commoner with his own lands. He had two sons — John and William. In 1280, King Alexander III of Scotland was not only still alive, but his two sons were also alive. The younger son, David, died in 1281; the elder son, Alexander, died in 1284; and finally Alexander III himself died in 1286. Alexander III left a granddaughter, Margaret, acknowledged as his heir by the Scottish nobles. Rather than fighting each other over the crown, the Scots appointed regents who ruled until she died in 1290. At this point, the nobles did not fall into civil war, and Edward did not claim the throne of Scotland. Instead, the Scots nobles asked Edward to preside (as a neutral party) over a commission to determine the rightful king. While Edward did claim overlordship of Scotland and undoubtedly influenced the conclusion, the result was to choose John Balliol as King of Scotland by the normal rules of primogeniture. At no time did Edward invite the nobles of Scotland "to talks of truce — no weapons, one page only. Balliol did start a war against Edward in 1296, because he felt that Edward was being overbearing. Unfortunately for Balliol, Edward was one of the best generals ever to sit on the English throne and beat Balliol handily. Incidentally, Edward was in no sense a "pagan" — there had not been any true pagans in Britain for centuries (he wasn't even a paganus in the Classical Latin sense of "peasant" or "yokel.

I love how no words are needed in the scenes. I often think as a brit myself, could the revolution have been avoided all together? If we hadn't have taxed them as we did. If we'd have taught them of their heritage in schools and made them proud to be british. Would they have remained as a colony like Australia or New Zealand? What would the world look like today if there was no revolution. Hmmmm. Braveheart Download torrente. Braveheart Download torrents.

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 Longshanks, claimed the throne of Scotland for himself. Scotland's nobles fought him, and fought each other, over the crown. So Longshanks invited them to talks of truce — no weapons, one page only. Among the farmers of that shire was Malcolm Wallace, a commoner with his own lands. He had two sons, John and William. Opening narration Many years later, Edward the Longshanks, King of England, supervised the wedding of his eldest son, who would succeed him to the throne. As bride for his son, Longshanks had chosen the daughter of his rival: the King of France. It was widely whispered, that for the princess to conceive, Longshanks would have to do the honors himself. That may have been what he had in mind all along. After the beheading, William Wallace's body was torn to pieces. His head was set on London Bridge, his arms and legs sent to the four corners of Britain as a warning. It did not have the effect that Longshanks planned. And I, Robert the Bruce, rode out to pay homage to the armies of the English King and accept his endorsement of my crown. Malcolm Wallace [ edit] Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow it. The problem with Scotland, is that it's full of Scots. Dialogue [ edit] Every man dies. Not every man really lives. You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it. We all end up dead; it's just a question of how and why. Malcolm: Where do you think you're going? Young William: I'm going with you. Malcolm: Oh, you're going with, are ya? And what are you going to do? Young William: I'm gonna help. Malcolm: Hey, and a good help you'd be, too. takes William off the horse] But I need you to stay here and look after the place for me while I'm away. Young William: I can fight! Malcolm: I know. I know you can fight. But it's our wits that make us men. See you tomorrow. Longshanks: Nobles. Nobles are the key to the door of Scotland. Grant our nobles lands in the north. Give their nobles estates here in England, and make them too greedy to oppose us. Advisor: But sire, our nobles will be reluctant to uproot. New lands mean new taxes and they are already taxed for the war in France. Longshanks: Are they? Are they? The trouble with Scotland. is that it's full of Scots. everyone laughs] Perhaps the time has come to reinstitute an old custom. Grant them prima noctes. First night, when any common girl inhabiting their lands is married, our nobles shall have sexual rights to her on the night of her wedding. If we can't get them out, we breed them out. That should fetch just the kind of lords we want to Scotland, taxes or no taxes. Advisor: A most excellent idea, sire. Longshanks: Is it? William: You dropped your rock. Hamish: Test of manhood. William: You win. Hamish: Call it a test of soldiery, then. The English won't let us train with weapons, so we train with stones. William: Well, the test of a soldier is not in his arm, it's here. points at his head] William: How did you know me after so long? Murron: Why, I didn't. William: No? Murron: It's just that I saw you staring at me and I didn't know who you were. William: Oh sorry, I suppose I was. Are you in the habit of riding off in the rain with strangers? Murron: It was the best way to make you leave. William: Well, if I can ever work up the courage to ask you again, I'll send you a written warning first. Murron: Oh, it wouldn't do you much good. I can't read. William: Can you not? Murron: No. William: Well that's something we shall have to remedy, isn't it. Murron: You're going to teach me to read, then? William: Aye, if you like. Murron: Aye. William: In what language? Murron: Are you showing off now? William: That's right. Are you impressed yet? Murron: No. Why should I be? William. in French] Yes. Because every single day I thought about you. " Murron: Do that standing on your head and I'll be impressed. William: My kilt may fly up but I'll try.

Campbell: Your father was a fighter! And a patroit. William: I know who my father was. I came back home to raise crops and, God willing, a family. If I can live in peace, I will. William: Of course, running a farm is a lot of work, but that will all change when my sons arrive. Murron. confused] So, you've got children? William: Not yet, but I was hoping you could help me with that. Murron: So, you want me to marry you then? William: Well, that's a bit sudden, but alright. Murron: Is that what you call a proposal? William: I love you, always have. I want to marry you. Murron kisses him] Is that a "yes? Murron: Aye, that's a "yes. " William: I will love you my whole life. You and no other. Murron: And I you. You and no other forever. [ an army of Scots disguise as English soldiers arrive at a camp] Lord Bottoms: I have dispatched a hundred soldiers to Lanark. They will be returning now! William: Were they dressed like this? Actually, it was more like fifty. Robert the Bruce: A rebellion has begun. The Leper: Under whom? Robert the Bruce: A commoner. named William Wallace. The Leper: We will embrace this rebellion. You will support it from our lands in the north while I gain English favor by condemning it, and ordering it opposed from our lands in the south. Sit down. Stay a while. Robert the Bruce: This Wallace, he doesn't even have a knighthood, but he fights with passion and he inspires. The Leper. laughs] And you wish to charge off and fight as he did. So would I. Robert the Bruce: Well, maybe it's time. The Leper: It is time to survive. You're the seventeenth Robert Bruce. The sixteen before you passed you land and title because they didn't charge in. Call a meeting of the nobles. Robert the Bruce: But they do nothing but talk. The Leper: Rightly so. They're as rich in English titles and lands as they are in Scottish, just as we are. You admire this man, this William Wallace. Uncompromising men are easy to admire. He has courage, so does a dog. But it is exactly the ability to compromise that makes a man noble. And understand this: Edward Longshanks is the most ruthless king ever to sit upon the throne of England. And none of us, and nothing of Scotland will remain, unless we are as ruthless. Give an ear to our nobles. Knowing their minds is the key to the throne. Nicolette: When the king returns, he will bury them in those new clothes. Scotland is in chaos. Your husband is secretly sending an army north. Isabella: How do you know this? Nicolette: Last night, I slept with a member of the War Council. Isabella: He shouldn't be telling secrets in bed! Nicolette: Englishmen don't know what a tongue is for. Isabella. scoffs] This Scottish rebel, Wallace. He fights to avenge a woman? Nicolette: I nearly forgot. A magistrate wished to capture him and found he had a secret lover. So, he cut the girl's throat to tempt Wallace to fight, and fight he did. Knowing his passion for his lost love, they next plotted to take him by desecrating the graves of his father and brother and setting an ambush at the grave of his love. He fought his way through the trap and carried her body to a secret place. Now that's love, no? Isabella: Love? I wouldn't know. William: You know, eventually Longshanks will send his whole Northern Army against us. Campbell: Heavy cavalry, armored horse; shake the very ground. Hamish: They'll ride right over us. William: Uncle Argyle used to talk about it; how no army had ever stood up to a charge of heavy horse. Hamish: So what'll we do? Campbell: Run, hide, the highland way. William. looking at the trees] We'll make spears. Hundreds of them! Long spears, twice as long as a man. Hamish: That long? William Wallace: Aye. Hamish: Some men are longer than others. Campbell: Your mother been telling you stories about me again, eh? Faudron. bows] William Wallace, we've come to fight and to die for you. William: Stand up, man, I'm not the pope. Stephen: laughs, speaking heavenward] Him? That can't be William Wallace. I'm prettier than this man. Heavenward] All right Father, I'll ask him. To William] If I risk my neck for you, will I get a chance to kill Englishmen? Hamish: Is your father a ghost, or do you converse with the Almighty? Stephen: In order to find his equal, an Irishman is forced to talk to God. Heavenward] Yes, Father. to William and Hamish] The Almighty says don't change the subject, just answer the fuckin' question. Hamish: Mind your tongue. Campbell: Insane Irish. [ Stephen pulls a sharpened stag's horn and holds it to the throat of Campbell, causing everyone else to hold Stephen at sword point] Stephen: Smart enough to get a dagger past your guards, old man. William: That's my friend, Irishman. And the answer to your question is yes, if you fight for me, you get to kill the English. Stephen: Excellent. puts knife away] Stephen is my name. I'm the most wanted man on my island. Except I'm not on my island of course. More's the pity. Hamish: Your island? You mean Ireland. Stephen: Yeah, it's mine. Hamish: You're a madman. [ group laughs] Stephen: I've come to the right place then. laughs] Stephen: The Almighty says this must be a fashionable fight. It's drawn the finest people. Lochlan: Where is thy salute? William: For presenting yourselves on this battlefield, I give you thanks. Lochlan: This is our army. To join it you give homage. William: I give homage to Scotland. And if this is your army, why does it go? Veteran: We didn't come here to fight for them. Young Soldier: Home! The English are too many! William: Sons of Scotland! I am William Wallace. Young Soldier: William Wallace is seven feet tall! William: Yes, I've heard. Kills men by the hundreds. And if he were here, he'd consume the English with fireballs from his eyes, and bolts of lightning from his arse. the Scots laugh] I am William Wallace! And I see a whole army of my country men here in defiance of tyranny. You've come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight? Veteran: Fight? Against that? No, we will run. And we will live. William: Aye. Fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live. at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take. OUR FREEDOM! Alba gu bràth! Cheltham: Mornay, Lochlan, Craig. Here are the king's terms. Lead this army off field and he will give you each estates in Yorkshire, including hereditary title, from which you will pay- from which you will pay him an annual duty- William: I have an offer for you. Mornay: Cheltham, this is William Wallace. Cheltham: From which you will pay the king an annual duty- William: I said I have an offer for you. Lochlan: You disrespect a banner of truce? William: From his king? Absolutely. Here are Scotland's terms. Lower your flags, and march straight back to England, stopping at every home you pass by to beg forgiveness for a hundred years of theft, rape, and murder. Do that and your men shall live. Do it not, and every one of you will die today. Cheltham. laughs] You are outmatched. You have no heavy cavalry. In two centuries no army has won without — William: I'm not finished! Before we let you leave, your commander must cross that field, present himself before this army, put his head between his legs, and kiss his own arse. [ Cheltham rides off] Mornay: I'd say that was rather less cordial than he was used to. William: You be ready and do exactly as I say. On my signal, ride round behind our position and flank them. Mornay: We must not divide our forces! William: Do it. And let the English see you do it. Mornay: They'll think we're running away? William: Aye. Take out their archers. I'll meet you in the middle. Your title gives you claim to the throne of our country, but men don't follow titles, they follow courage. Now, our people know you. Noble and common, they respect you. And if you would just lead them to freedom they'd follow you. And so would I. Craig: Sir William, where are you going? William: We have beaten the English, but they'll come back because you won't stand together. Craig: What will you do? William: I will invade England and defeat the English on their own ground. Craig. laughs] Invade? That's impossible. William: Why? Why is that impossible? You're so concerned with squabbling for the scraps from Longshank's table that you've missed your God-given right to something better. There is a difference between us. You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. And I go to make sure that they have it. Robert the Bruce: Wait! I respect what you said, but remember that these men have lands and castles. It's much to risk. William: And the common man who bleeds on the battlefield, does he risk less? Robert the Bruce: No. But from top to bottom this country has no sense of itself. Its nobles share allegiance with England. Its clans war with each other. If you make enemies on both sides of the border, you'll end up dead. William: We all end up dead; it's just a question of how and why. Robert the Bruce: I'm not a coward. I want what you want, but we need the nobles. William: We need them? Robert the Bruce: Aye. William: Now tell me, what does that mean to be noble? Your title gives you claim to the throne of our country, but men don't follow titles, they follow courage. And so would I. William: I'm dreaming. Murron: Yes you are. And you must wake. William: I don't want to wake. I want to stay here with you. Murron: And I with you. Isabelle: I understand you have been given the rank of knight. William: I have been given nothing. God makes men what they are. Isabella: Did God make you the sacker of peaceful cities, the executioner of the king's nephew, my husband's own cousin? William: York was the staging point for every invasion of my country. And that royal cousin hanged innocent Scots, even women and children, from the city walls. Oh, Longshanks did far worse the last time he took a Scottish city. Isabelle: Let us talk plainly. You invade England, but you can not complete the conquest so far from your shelter and supply. The king desires peace. William: Longshanks desires peace? Isabelle: He declares it to me, I swear it. He proposes that you withdraw your attack. In return he grants you title, estates, and this chest of gold which I am to pay to you personally. William: A lordship and titles. Gold. That I should become Judas? Isabelle: Peace is made in such ways. William: Slaves are made in such ways! The last time Longshanks spoke of peace I was a boy. And many Scottish nobles, who would not be slaves, were lured by him under a flag of truce to a barn, where he had them hanged. I was very young, but I remember Longshanks' notion of peace. Isabelle: I understand you have suffered. I know. about your woman. William: She was my wife. We married in secret because I would not share her with an English lord. They killed her to get to me. I've never spoken of it. I don't know why I tell you now, except. I see her strength in you. One day, you'll be a queen. And you must open your eyes. You tell your king that William Wallace will not be ruled. and nor will any Scot while I live. Longshanks: You spoke with this Wallace in private? Tell me, what kind of man is he? Isabella: A mindless barbarian, not a king like you, my lord. Longshanks: You may return to your embroidery. Isabella: Humbly, my lord. turns to walk away] Edward: You brought back the money, of coarse? Isabella: No. I gave it to ease the suffering of the children of this war. Longshanks. laughs] That's what happens when you send a woman. Isabella: Forgive me, sire. I thought that generosity might demonstrate your greatness to those you mean to rule. Longshanks: My greatness will be better demonstrated when Wallace returns to Scotland and finds his country in ashes. Robert the Bruce: Now you've achieved more than anyone ever dreamed, but fighting these odds it looks like rage, not courage. William: It's well beyond rage. Help me. In the name of Christ help yourselves! Now is our chance, now! If we join, we can win. If we win, well then we'll have what none of us have ever had before; a country of our own. You are the rightful leader and there is strength in you. I see it. Unite us. Unite the clans! The Leper: I'm the one who's rotting, but I think your face looks graver than mine. Son, we must have alliance with England to prevail here. You achieved that. You saved your family, increased your land. In time, you will have all the power in Scotland. Robert the Bruce: Lands, titles, men, power. nothing. The Leper: Nothing? Robert the Bruce: I have nothing. Men fight for me because if they do not, I throw them off my land and I starve their wives and children. Those men who bled the ground red at Falkirk fought for William Wallace. He fights for something that I never had. And I took it from him, when I betrayed him. I saw it in his face on the battlefield! And it's tearing me apart. The Leper: All men betray. All lose heart. Robert the Bruce: I DON'T WANT TO LOSE HEART! I want to believe as he does. I will never be on the wrong side again. Noble: Lord Craig, is it true about Mornay? Craig: Aye. Wallace rode into his bead chamber and killed him. More a liability now then ever he was. And there's no telling who'll be next. Robert the Bruce: Maybe you. Maybe me. chuckles] It doesn't matter. Craig: I'm serious, Robert. Robert the Bruce. angerly slams the table] SO AM I! Commoner 1: William Wallace killed fifty men. Fify in one. Commoner 2: A hundred men. Commoner 3: With his own sword! Cut through them like Moses through the Red Sea. William: Why do you help me? Isabelle: Because of the way you're looking at me now. William: Look at us. We've got to try. Joining the nobles is the only way. You know what happens if we don't take that chance? Hamish: What? William: Nothing. Hamish: I don't want to be a martyr. William: Nor I. I want to live. I want a home and children, and peace. Hamish: Do ya? William: Aye, I do. I've asked God for these things. It's all for nothing if you don't have freedom. Hamish: It's just a dream, William. William: A dream? Just a dream? What we've been doing all this time? We've lived that dream. Hamish: Your dream isn't about freedom, it's about Murron. You're doing this to be a hero because you think she sees you! William: I don't think she sees me, I know she does. And your father sees you too. [ Hamish punches William] After William is arrested] Robert the Bruce: Father! You. Rotting. Bastard. Why? Why! The Leper: Longshanks required Wallace. So did our nobles. That was the price of your crown. Robert the Bruce: Die! I want you to die. The Leper: Soon enough I'll be dead. And you'll be king. Robert the Bruce: I don't want anything from you. You're not a man! And you're not my father. The Leper: You are my son and you have always known my mind. Robert the Bruce: You deceived me. The Leper: You let yourself be deceived. In your heart, you always knew what had to happen here. At last, you know what it means to hate. Now you're ready to be a king. Robert the Bruce: My hate. will die. with you. Royal Magistrate: William Wallace, you stand in taint of High Treason. William: Against whom? Royal Magistrate: Against your king. Have you anything to say? William: Never in my whole life did I swear allegiance to him. Royal Magistrate: It matters not. He is your king. Confess, and you may receive a quick death. Deny, and you must be purified by pain. Do you confess. William remains silent] Do you confess? Then on the morrow you shall receive your purification. William: M'lady. Isabelle: Sir, I've come to beg you to confess all and swear allegiance to the king that he might show you mercy. William: Will he show mercy to my country? Isabelle: Mercy is to die quickly, perhaps even live in a tower. In time, who knows what can happen. if you can only live. William: If I swear to him, then all I am is dead already. Isabelle. sobbing] You will die. It will be awful. William: Every man dies. Not every man really lives. Isabella: I have come to beg for the life of William Wallace. Edward: You're quite taken with him, aren't you. Isabella: I respect him. to Longshanks] At worst he was a worthy enemy. Show mercy, o great king, and win the respect of your own people. Even now you are incapable of mercy. to Edward] And you. To you that word is as unfamiliar as love. Edward: Before he lost his powers of speech he told me his one comfort was he would live to know Wallace was dead. Isabella. whispers in Longshanks ear] You see, death comes to us all. But before it comes to you, know this. Your blood dies with you. A child who is not of your line grows in my belly. Your son will not sit long on the throne, I swear it. [ William Wallace is momentarily still alive after being drawn, castrated, and eviscerated] Royal Magistrate: It can all end, right now. Peace. Bliss. Just say it. Cry out mercy. Crowd: Mercy. mercy! Royal Magistrate: Cry out. Mercy. Hamish: Mercy lad, mercy. Stephen: Jesus, mercy. Royal Magistrate. to crowd] The prisoner wishes to say a word. William: FREEEEE-DOMMMMMM. Craig: Come. Lets get this over with. Robert the Bruce: Wait. to the army] You have bled with Wallace! Now bleed with me. Taglines [ edit] Every man dies; not every man really lives. What gives men the will to fight passion to bleed strength to die well? His passion captivated a woman. His courage inspired a nation. His heart defied a king. In a land of timeless beauty, William Wallace was a man of peace. But when a ruthless king threatened his home, and murdered the woman he loved, William Wallace was driven to to win for his people something they never dreamed of having.

I really liked the movie the first time i saw it.I kept many of the scenes and good dialogs in my mind for days, and this happens to me usually when i am touched with a time I got a chance to enjoy the movie again in television, I did, in the year 2000 I saw the movie "The patriot" and at some point of the movie I found my own spoiler, The Patriot" became like the reincarnation of William Wallace in Benjamin see, for instance all the war scenes, fights,blood,horses and the honor of the 2 different characters were very similar, so I didn't like the Patriot because was like a "SEQUEL" of Braveheart. I still think that Braveheart is a wonderful movie but I think in my humble opinion that Mel Gibson wanted some similar impact and success with the movie The Patriot, like he had with brave heart and he competed with one of his own good movies and that was not necessary. I don't think that other movie about wars like Braveheart can be better,Braveheart is good and then you don't want to see similar plots in others movies, because you already know what is good. You can't improve perfect and Braveheart is perfect.

Braveheart North American theatrical release poster Directed by Mel Gibson Produced by Mel Gibson Alan Ladd Jr. Bruce Davey Written by Randall Wallace Starring Mel Gibson Sophie Marceau Patrick McGoohan Catherine McCormack Music by James Horner Cinematography John Toll Edited by Steven Rosenblum Production company Icon Productions The Ladd Company Distributed by Paramount Pictures (North America) 20th Century Fox (International) Release date May 18, 1995 ( Seattle) May 24, 1995 (United States) Running time 178 minutes Country United States  Language English Budget 65–70 million  3] Box office 210. 4 million  Braveheart is a 1995 American epic war film directed and co-produced by Mel Gibson, who portrays William Wallace, a late-13th-century Scottish warrior. The film is fictionally based on the life of Wallace leading the Scots in the First War of Scottish Independence against King Edward I of England. The film also stars Sophie Marceau, Patrick McGoohan and Catherine McCormack. The story is inspired by Blind Harry 's epic poem The Actes and Deidis of the Illustre and Vallyeant Campioun Schir William Wallace and was adapted for the screen by Randall Wallace. Development on the film initially started at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer when producer Alan Ladd Jr. picked up the project from Wallace, but when MGM was going through new management, Ladd left the studio and took the project with him. Despite initially declining, Gibson eventually decided to direct the film, as well as star as Wallace. The film was filmed in Scotland and Ireland from June to October 1994 with a budget around 65–70 million.  Braveheart, which was produced by Gibson's Icon Productions and The Ladd Company, was distributed by Paramount Pictures in North America and by 20th Century Fox internationally. Released on May 24, 1995, Braveheart received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the performances, directing, production values, battle sequences, and musical score, but criticized its inaccuracies regarding Wallace's title, love interests, and attire.  The film grossed 75. 6 million in the US and grossed 210. 4 million worldwide. At the 68th Academy Awards, the film was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won five: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Makeup, and Best Sound Editing. A sequel, Robert the Bruce, was released in 2019, with Angus Macfadyen reprising his role. Plot [ edit] In 1280, King Edward "Longshanks" invades and conquers Scotland following the death of Alexander III of Scotland, who left no heir to the throne. Young William Wallace witnesses Longshanks' treachery, survives the deaths of his father and brother, and is taken abroad on a pilgrimage throughout Europe by his paternal uncle Argyle, where he is educated. Years later, in 1297, Longshanks grants his noblemen land and privileges in Scotland, including Prima Nocte. Meanwhile, a grown Wallace returns to Scotland and falls in love with his childhood friend Murron MacClannough, and the two marry in secret. Wallace rescues Murron from being raped by English soldiers, but as she fights off their second attempt, Murron is captured and publicly executed. In retribution, Wallace leads his clan to slaughter the English garrison in his hometown and send the occupying garrison at Lanark back to England. Longshanks orders his son Prince Edward to stop Wallace by any means necessary. Alongside his friend Hamish, Wallace rebels against the English, and as his legend spreads, hundreds of Scots from the surrounding clans join him. Wallace leads his army to victory at the Battle of Stirling and then destroys the city of York, killing Longshanks' nephew and sending his severed head to the king. Wallace seeks the assistance of Robert the Bruce, the son of nobleman Robert the Elder and a contender for the Scottish crown. Robert is dominated by his father, who wishes to secure the throne for his son by submitting to the English. Worried by the threat of the rebellion, Longshanks sends his son's wife Isabella of France to try to negotiate with Wallace as a distraction for the landing of another invasion force in Scotland. After meeting him in person, Isabella becomes enamored of Wallace. She warns him of the coming invasion, and Wallace implores the Scottish nobility to take immediate action to counter the threat and take back the country, asking Robert the Bruce to lead. In 1298, leading the English army himself, Longshanks confronts the Scots at Falkirk. There, noblemen Mornay and Lochlan turn their backs on Wallace after being bribed by the king, resulting in the death of Hamish's father, Campbell. Wallace is then further betrayed when he discovers Robert the Bruce was fighting alongside Longshanks; after the battle, after seeing the damage he helped do to his countrymen, the Bruce reprimands his father and vows not to be on the wrong side again. Wallace kills Lochlan and Mornay for their betrayal, and wages a guerrilla war against the English for the next seven years, assisted by Isabella, with whom he eventually has an affair. In 1305, Robert sets up a meeting with Wallace in Edinburgh, but Robert's father has conspired with other nobles to capture and hand over Wallace to the English. Learning of his treachery, Robert disowns and banishes his father. Isabella exacts revenge on the now terminally ill Longshanks by telling him that his bloodline will be destroyed upon his death as she is now pregnant with Wallace's child. In London, Wallace is brought before an English magistrate, tried for high treason, and condemned to public torture and beheading. Even whilst being hanged, drawn and quartered, Wallace refuses to submit to the king. The watching crowd, deeply moved by the Scotsman's valor, begin crying for mercy. The magistrate offers him one final chance, asking him only to utter the word, Mercy" and be granted a quick death. Wallace instead shouts, Freedom. and the judge orders his death. As Wallace's cry rings through the square, Longshanks hears it just before dying. Moments before being decapitated, Wallace sees a vision of Murron in the crowd, smiling at him. In 1314, Robert, now Scotland's king, leads a Scottish army before a ceremonial line of English troops on the fields of Bannockburn, where he is to formally accept English rule. As he begins to ride toward the English, he stops and invokes Wallace's memory. Hamish throws Wallace's sword, Braveheart, point-down in front of the English army, imploring his men to fight with Robert as they did with Wallace. With the Scots chanting Wallace's name, Robert then leads his army into battle against the stunned English, winning the Scots their freedom. The final shot of the film is the sun setting behind Braveheart as it sways in the wind. Cast [ edit] Production [ edit] This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. February 2020) Producer Alan Ladd Jr. initially had the project at MGM-Pathé Communications when he picked up the script from Wallace.  When MGM was going through new management in 1993, Ladd left the studio and took some of its top properties, including Braveheart.  Gibson came across the script and even though he liked it, he initially passed on it. However, the thought of it kept coming back to him and he ultimately decided to take on the project.  Gibson was initially interested in directing only and considered Brad Pitt in the role of William Wallace, but Gibson reluctantly agreed to play Wallace as well.  Gibson (right) on set with 20th Century Fox executive Scott Neeson Gibson and his production company, Icon Productions, had difficulty raising enough money for the film. Warner Bros. was willing to fund the project on the condition that Gibson sign for another Lethal Weapon sequel, which he refused. Gibson eventually gained enough financing for the film, with Paramount Pictures financing a third of the budget in exchange for North American distribution rights to the film, and 20th Century Fox putting up two thirds of the budget in exchange for international distribution rights.  3] Principal photography on the film began on June 6, 1994.  While the crew spent three weeks shooting on location in Scotland, the major battle scenes were shot in Ireland using members of the Irish Army Reserve as extras. To lower costs, Gibson had the same extras, up to 1, 600 in some scenes, portray both armies. The reservists had been given permission to grow beards and swapped their military uniforms for medieval garb.  Principal photography ended on October 28, 1994.  The film was shot in the anamorphic format with Panavision C- and E-Series lenses.  Gibson had to tone down the film's battle scenes to avoid an NC-17 rating from the MPAA; the final version was rated R for "brutal medieval warfare. 13] Gibson and editor Steven Rosenblum initially had a film at 195 minutes, but Sheryl Lansing, who was the head of Paramount at the time, requested Gibson and Rosenblum to cut the film down to 177 minutes.  According to Gibson in a 2016 interview with Collider, there is a four-hour version of the film and would be interested in reassembling it if both Paramount and Fox are interested.  Soundtrack [ edit] The score was composed and conducted by James Horner and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. It is Horner's second of three collaborations with Mel Gibson as director. The score has gone on to be one of the most commercially successful soundtracks of all time. It received considerable acclaim from film critics and audiences and was nominated for a number of awards, including the Academy Award, Saturn Award, BAFTA Award, and Golden Globe Award. Release and reception [ edit] Box office [ edit] On its opening weekend, Braveheart grossed 9, 938, 276 in the United States and 75. 6 million in its box office run in the U. S. and Canada.  Worldwide, the film grossed 210, 409, 945 and was the thirteenth-highest-grossing film of 1995.  Critical response [ edit] Braveheart earned positive reviews; critics praised Gibson's direction and performance as Wallace, the performances of its cast, and its screenplay, production values, Horner's score, and the battle sequences. The depiction of the Battle of Stirling Bridge was listed by CNN as one of the best battles in cinema history.  However, it was also criticized for its depiction of history. The film holds a 77% approval rating at review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, with an average score of 7. 25/10, based on 75 reviews. The site's consensus states "Distractingly violent and historically dodgy, Mel Gibson's Braveheart justifies its epic length by delivering enough sweeping action, drama, and romance to match its ambition. 17] The film also has a score of 68 out of 100 on Metacritic based on 20 critic reviews indicating "generally favorable reviews. 18] Caryn James of The New York Times praised the film, calling it "one of the most spectacular entertainments in years. Roger Ebert gave the film 3. 5 stars out of four, calling it "An action epic with the spirit of the Hollywood swordplay classics and the grungy ferocity of The Road Warrior. In a positive review, Gene Siskel wrote that "in addition to staging battle scenes well, Gibson also manages to recreate the filth and mood of 700 years ago. 19] Peter Travers of Rolling Stone felt that "though the film dawdles a bit with the shimmery, dappled love stuff involving Wallace with a Scottish peasant and a French princess, the action will pin you to your seat. " Not all reviews were positive, however. Richard Schickel of TIME magazine argued that "everybody knows that a non-blubbering clause is standard in all movie stars' contracts. Too bad there isn't one banning self-indulgence when they direct. 20] Peter Stack of San Francisco Chronicle felt "at times the film seems an obsessive ode to Mel Gibson machismo. 21] In a 2005 poll by British film magazine Empire, Braveheart was No. 1 on their list of "The Top 10 Worst Pictures to Win Best Picture Oscar. 22] Empire readers had previously voted Braveheart the best film of 1995.  Effect on tourism [ edit] The European premiere was on September 3, 1995, in Stirling.  In 1996, the year after the film was released, the annual three-day "Braveheart Conference" at Stirling Castle attracted fans of Braveheart, increasing the conference's attendance to 167, 000 from 66, 000 in the previous year.  In the following year, research on visitors to the Stirling area indicated that 55% of the visitors had seen Braveheart. Of visitors from outside Scotland, 15% of those who saw Braveheart said it influenced their decision to visit the country. Of all visitors who saw Braveheart, 39% said the film influenced in part their decision to visit Stirling, and 19% said the film was one of the main reasons for their visit.  In the same year, a tourism report said that the " Braveheart effect" earned Scotland 7 million to 15 million in tourist revenue, and the report led to various national organizations encouraging international film productions to take place in Scotland.  The film generated huge interest in Scotland and in Scottish history, not only around the world, but also in Scotland itself. Fans came from all over the world to see the places in Scotland where William Wallace fought, also to the places in Scotland and Ireland used as locations in the film. citation needed] At a Braveheart Convention in 1997, held in Stirling the day after the Scottish Devolution vote and attended by 200 delegates from around the world, Braveheart author Randall Wallace, Seoras Wallace of the Wallace Clan, Scottish historian David Ross and Bláithín FitzGerald from Ireland gave lectures on various aspects of the film. citation needed] Several of the actors also attended including James Robinson (Young William) Andrew Weir (Young Hamish) Julie Austin (the young bride) and Mhairi Calvey (Young Murron. citation needed] Awards and honors [ edit] Braveheart was nominated for many awards during the 1995 Oscar season, though it was not viewed by many as a major contender such as Apollo 13, Il Postino: The Postman, Leaving Las Vegas, Sense and Sensibility, and The Usual Suspects. It wasn't until after the film won the Golden Globe Award for Best Director at the 53rd Golden Globe Awards that it was viewed as a serious Oscar contender. When the nominations were announced for the 68th Academy Awards, Braveheart received ten Academy Award nominations, and a month later, won five including Best Picture, Best Director for Gibson, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Effects Editing, and Best Makeup.  Braveheart became the ninth film to win Best Picture with no acting nominations and is one of only three films to win Best Picture without being nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, the other being The Shape of Water in 2017 and followed by Green Book the following year.  30] 31] The film also won the Writer's Guild of America Award for Best Original Screenplay.

Wallace Monument [ edit] In 1997, a 12-foot (3. 7 m) 13-tonne (13-long-ton; 14-short-ton) sandstone statue depicting Mel Gibson as William Wallace in Braveheart was placed in the car park of the Wallace Monument near Stirling, Scotland. The statue, which was the work of Tom Church, a monumental mason from Brechin, 41] included the word 'Braveheart' on Wallace's shield. The installation became the cause of much controversy; one local resident stated that it was wrong to "desecrate the main memorial to Wallace with a lump of crap. 42] In 1998, someone wielding a hammer vandalized the statue's face. After repairs were made, the statue was encased in a cage every night to prevent further vandalism. This only incited more calls for the statue to be removed, as it then appeared that the Gibson/Wallace figure was imprisoned. The statue was described as "among the most loathed pieces of public art in Scotland. 43] In 2008, the statue was returned to its sculptor to make room for a new visitor centre being built at the foot of the Wallace Monument.  Historical inaccuracy [ edit] Randall Wallace, who wrote the screenplay, has acknowledged Blind Harry 's 15th-century epic poem The Acts and Deeds of Sir William Wallace, Knight of Elderslie as a major inspiration for the film.  In defending his script, Randall Wallace has said, Is Blind Harry true? I don't know. I know that it spoke to my heart and that's what matters to me, that it spoke to my heart. 45] Blind Harry's poem is not regarded as historically accurate, and although some incidents in the film that are not historically accurate are taken from Blind Harry (e. g. the hanging of Scottish nobles at the start. 46] there are large parts that are based neither on history nor Blind Harry (e. Wallace's affair with Princess Isabella. 5] Elizabeth Ewan describes Braveheart as a film that "almost totally sacrifices historical accuracy for epic adventure. 47] The "brave heart" refers in Scottish history to that of Robert the Bruce, and an attribution by William Edmondstoune Aytoun, in his poem Heart of Bruce, to Sir James the Good Douglas: Pass thee first, thou dauntless heart, As thou wert wont of yore. prior to Douglas' demise at the Battle of Teba in Andalusia.  It has been described as one of the most historically inaccurate modern films.  Sharon Krossa noted that the film contains numerous historical errors, beginning with the wearing of belted plaid by Wallace and his men. In that period "no Scots. wore belted plaids (let alone kilts of any kind. Moreover, when Highlanders finally did begin wearing the belted plaid, it was not "in the rather bizarre style depicted in the film. She compares the inaccuracy to "a film about Colonial America showing the colonial men wearing 20th century business suits, but with the jackets worn back-to-front instead of the right way around. 49] In a previous essay about the film, she wrote, The events aren't accurate, the dates aren't accurate, the characters aren't accurate, the names aren't accurate, the clothes aren't accurate—in short, just about nothing is accurate. 50] The belted plaid ( feileadh mór léine) was not introduced until the 16th century.  Peter Traquair has referred to Wallace's "farcical representation as a wild and hairy highlander painted with woad (1, 000 years too late) running amok in a tartan kilt (500 years too early. 52] In fact, Wallace was a lowlander; thus, the mountains and glens of his home as depicted in the film are also inaccurate. Irish historian Seán Duffy remarked "the battle of Stirling Bridge could have done with a bridge. 53] In 2009, the film was second on a list of "most historically inaccurate movies" in The Times.  In the humorous non-fictional historiography An Utterly Impartial History of Britain (2007) author John O'Farrell claims that Braveheart could not have been more historically inaccurate, even if a Plasticine dog had been inserted in the film and the title changed to " William Wallace and Gromit. 54] In the DVD audio commentary of Braveheart, Mel Gibson acknowledges many of the historical inaccuracies but defends his choices as director, noting that the way events were portrayed in the film was much more "cinematically compelling" than the historical fact or conventional mythos.  Jus primae noctis [ edit] Edward Longshanks, King of England, is shown invoking Jus primae noctis, allowing the lord of a medieval estate to take the virginity of his serfs' maiden daughters on their wedding nights. Critical medieval scholarship regards this supposed right as a myth: the simple reason why we are dealing with a myth here rests in the surprising fact that practically all writers who make any such claims have never been able or willing to cite any trustworthy source, if they have any. 55] 56] Occupation and independence [ edit] The film suggests Scotland had been under English occupation for some time, at least during Wallace's childhood, and in the run-up to the Battle of Falkirk Wallace says to the younger Bruce. W]e'll have what none of us have ever had before, a country of our own. In fact, Scotland had been invaded by England only the year before Wallace's rebellion; prior to the death of King Alexander III it had been a fully separate kingdom.  At one point, Wallace's uncle refers to a piper as “playing outlawed tunes on outlawed pipes. Not only were bagpipes not outlawed at the time, they likely had not yet been introduced to Scotland. Further, the widely-held belief that bagpipes were banned by the Act of Proscription 1746 (400 years later) is erroneous. Bagpipes were never specifically outlawed in Scotland. Portrayal of William Wallace [ edit] As John Shelton Lawrence and Robert Jewett writes, Because [William] Wallace is one of Scotland's most important national heroes and because he lived in the very distant past, much that is believed about him is probably the stuff of legend. But there is a factual strand that historians agree to" summarized from Scots scholar Matt Ewart: Wallace was born into the gentry of Scotland; his father lived until he was 18, his mother until his 24th year; he killed the sheriff of Lanark when he was 27, apparently after the murder of his wife; he led a group of commoners against the English in a very successful battle at Stirling in 1297, temporarily receiving appointment as guardian; Wallace's reputation as a military leader was ruined in the same year of 1297, leading to his resignation as guardian; he spent several years of exile in France before being captured by the English at Glasgow, this resulting in his trial for treason and his cruel execution.  A. E. Christa Canitz writes about the historical William Wallace further. He] was a younger son of the Scottish gentry, usually accompanied by his own chaplain, well-educated, and eventually, having been appointed Guardian of the Kingdom of Scotland, engaged in diplomatic correspondence with the Hanseatic cities of Lübeck and Hamburg. She finds that in Braveheart, any hint of his descent from the lowland gentry (i. e., the lesser nobility) is erased, and he is presented as an economically and politically marginalized Highlander and 'a farmer'—as one with the common peasant, and with a strong spiritual connection to the land which he is destined to liberate. 59] Colin McArthur writes that Braveheart "constructs Wallace as a kind of modern, nationalist guerrilla leader in a period half a millennium before the appearance of nationalism on the historical stage as a concept under which disparate classes and interests might be mobilised within a nation state. Writing about Braveheart ' s "omissions of verified historical facts" McArthur notes that Wallace made "overtures to Edward I seeking less severe treatment after his defeat at Falkirk" as well as "the well-documented fact of Wallace's having resorted to conscription and his willingness to hang those who refused to serve. 60] Canitz posits that depicting "such lack of class solidarity" as the conscriptions and related hangings "would contaminate the movie's image of Wallace as the morally irreproachable primus inter pares among his peasant fighters. 59] Portrayal of Isabella of France [ edit] Isabella of France is shown having an affair with Wallace after the Battle of Falkirk. She later tells Edward I she is pregnant, implying that her son, Edward III, was a product of the affair. In reality, Isabella was around three years old and living in France at the time of the Battle of Falkirk, was not married to Edward II until he was already king, and Edward III was born seven years after Wallace died.  5] Portrayal of Robert the Bruce [ edit] Robert the Bruce did change sides between the Scots loyalists and the English more than once in the earlier stages of the Wars of Scottish Independence, but he never betrayed Wallace directly, and he probably did not fight on the English side at the Battle of Falkirk (although this claim does appear in a few medieval sources. 62] Later, the Battle of Bannockburn was not a spontaneous battle; he had already been fighting a guerrilla campaign against the English for eight years.  His title before becoming king was Earl of Carrick, not Earl of Bruce.  Portrayal of Longshanks and Prince Edward [ edit] The actual Edward I was ruthless and temperamental, but the film exaggerates his negative aspects for effect. Edward enjoyed poetry and harp music, was a devoted and loving husband to his wife Eleanor of Castile, and as a religious man, he gave generously to charity. The film's scene where he scoffs cynically at Isabella for distributing gold to the poor after Wallace refuses it as a bribe would have been unlikely. Also, Edward died on campaign two years after Wallace's execution, not in bed at his home.  The depiction of the future Edward II as an effeminate homosexual drew accusations of homophobia against Gibson. We cut a scene out, unfortunately. where you really got to know that character [Edward II] and to understand his plight and his pain. But it just stopped the film in the first act so much that you thought, When's this story going to start. 66. better source needed] Gibson defended his depiction of Prince Edward as weak and ineffectual, saying: I'm just trying to respond to history. You can cite other examples— Alexander the Great, for example, who conquered the entire world, was also a homosexual. But this story isn't about Alexander the Great. It's about Edward II.  In response to Longshanks' murder of the Prince's male lover Phillip, Gibson replied: The fact that King Edward throws this character out a window has nothing to do with him being gay. He's terrible to his son, to everybody. 68] Gibson asserted that the reason Longshanks kills his son's lover is because the king is a " psychopath. 69] Gibson expressed bewilderment that some filmgoers would laugh at this murder. The real Gaveston was never murdered by Edward I. Edward I died in 1307, with Gaveston living past his death, until 1312.  Wallace's military campaign [ edit] MacGregors from the next glen" joining Wallace shortly after the action at Lanark is dubious, since it is questionable whether Clan Gregor existed at that stage, and when they did emerge their traditional home was Glen Orchy, some distance from Lanark.  Wallace did win an important victory at the Battle of Stirling Bridge, but the version in Braveheart is highly inaccurate, as it was filmed without a bridge (and without Andrew Moray, joint commander of the Scots army, who was fatally injured in the battle. Later, Wallace did carry out a large-scale raid into the north of England, but he did not get as far south as York, nor did he kill Longshanks' nephew  however, this was not as wide of the mark as Blind Harry, who has Wallace making it as far south as St. Albans, and only refraining from attacking London after the English queen came out to meet him. 46] Edward's nephew John of Brittany did take part in the Wars of Scottish Independence, but he was not killed, dying of natural causes.  The "Irish conscripts" at the Battle of Falkirk are also unhistorical; there were no Irish troops at Falkirk (although many of the English army were actually Welsh) 74] and it is anachronistic to refer to conscripts in the Middle Ages (although there were feudal levies. The two-handed long swords used by Gibson in the film were not in wide use in the period. A one-handed sword and shield would have been more accurate.  Accusations of Anglophobia [ edit] Sections of the English media accused the film of harboring Anglophobia. The Economist called it " xenophobic. 76] and John Sutherland writing in The Guardian stated that. Braveheart gave full rein to a toxic Anglophobia. 77] 78] 79] In The Times, Colin McArthur said "the political effects are truly pernicious. It's a xenophobic film. 78] Ian Burrell of The Independent has noted, The Braveheart phenomenon, a Hollywood-inspired rise in Scottish nationalism, has been linked to a rise in anti-English prejudice. 80] Home media [ edit] Braveheart was released on DVD on August 29, 2000.  It was released on Blu-ray as part of the Paramount Sapphire Series on September 1, 2009.  It was released on 4K UHD Blu-ray as part of the 4K upgrade of the Paramount Sapphire Series on May 15, 2018.  Sequel [ edit] On February 9, 2018, a sequel titled Robert the Bruce was announced. The film will lead directly on from Braveheart and follow the widow Moira, portrayed by Anna Hutchison, and her family (portrayed by Gabriel Bateman and Talitha Bateman) who save Robert the Bruce, with Angus Macfadyen reprising his role from Braveheart. The cast will also include Jared Harris, Patrick Fugit, Zach McGowan, Emma Kenney, Diarmaid Murtagh, Seoras Wallace, Shane Coffey, Kevin McNally, and Melora Walters. Richard Gray will direct the film, with Macfadyen and Eric Belgau writing the script. Helmer Gray, Macfadyen, Hutchison, Kim Barnard, Nick Farnell, Cameron Nuggent, and Andrew Curry will produce the film.

All the talk here of historical significance is a little ridiculous. Who says he was trying to pass this off as fact. Also some posters talk like they know the facts when fron all the research I have done even the most expert historians cant agree on a lot of William Wallace's life. But this film did do one of the things it should have done, make me want to look deeper into this story, and regardless of its mistakes with history it was a brilliantly made movie.
It is a storyt in the eyes of the writer and director, but it is still up to the individual to research themselves, No matter how good I thought Michael Moore did with Farenhiet 911 without looking deeper into the issue it is just one mans opinion and their needs to be responsibility of the viewer but all in all a very enjoyable movie.
Braveheart Download torrent finder. I always loved this song when I was driving home at night time haha left me pondering what kaisu meant. I know now but took me only 5 years haha. Thursday February 13th 2020 Braveheart location: the Scottish Highlands: Glencoe, Scotland CAST, Mel Gibson, Patrick McGoohan, Sophie Marceau, Brendan Gleeson, Brian Cox, Alun Armstrong, Catherine McCormack, Angus Macfadyen, David OHara, Peter Mullan, Gerard McSorley, Tommy Flanagan, Ian Bannen A reckless disregard for historical accuracy didn't prevent Mel Gibson s two-dimensional tale of Scots hero William Wallace from snagging both Best Film and Best Director Oscars. The epic movie helped along by a solid cast, bloodily rousing battle scenes, James Horner s swooningly romantic score and the awesome landscapes of the Scottish Highlands and – erm – Ireland. There was a bit of controversy when it was announced that this quintessentially Scottish story was to be made largely in Ireland but, when it comes to filmmaking, the Republic is on the ball with tax breaks and the use of its army as extras. Braveheart location: the Scottish highlands: Loch Leven, Scotland, Photograph: iStockphoto Juliane Jacobs The sweeping, mountainous landscapes couldn't be faked and really are the wild, rocky Highlands of Scotland, around Loch Leven and Glen Coe, filming in the some of the same areas as as Highlander. The village of ‘Lanark, where the young William Wallace grows up, and falls in love with Murron ( Catherine McCormack) was constructed in the Glen Nevis Valley at the foot of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain peak in Britain. Although the set was dismantled after filming and the area returned to its former state, the Braveheart Car Park, constructed to service the location, has been retained. The filming site is up the glen, past the car park, and below the roads highest point. The design of the village houses was based on those of St Kilda, a tiny island off the Scottish coast, inhabited until the late 18th century, but now a tourist attraction. As Wallaces legend grows after the killing of Mornay ( Alun Armstrong) his trek along the spectacular mountain path filmed on the Mamores, a group of ten mountains linked by a narrow ridge, stretching between Loch Leven itself and Glen Nevis. If you fancy yourself as a fit hillwalker, you should be able to walk the ten peaks in a day. Access to the ridges is gained either from the south at Kinlochleven, or from the north in Glen Nevis. The interior of Mornays castle is another Scots location, filmed in Edinburgh Council Chamber, High Street, Edinburgh. The rest of the film was shot in Ireland, within a 30 mile radius of the city of Dublin, where most of the interiors were filmed at the famous Ardmore Studios. Production Designer Tom Sanders does a terrific job of dressing up time-worn Irish castles to provide authentically solid backdrops. Braveheart location: the English town of ‘York: Trim Castle, Co Meath, Ireland, Photograph: iStockphoto Brian Tansey The fortified English town of ‘York is Trim Castle, a massive ruin brought to life with extensive wooden buttresses and a gate that alone weighed seven tons. The ‘London square was also created at Trim, on the other side of the castle wall. Trim Castle can also be seen in Sam Fuller s 1980 war movie, The Big Red One, with Lee Marvin. The town of Trim is about 26 miles northwest of Dublin on the River Boyne, Co Meath. The ‘English stockade was constructed around an old hunting lodge on the Coronation Plantation (named to celebrate the coronation of King William IV in 1831) in Wicklow Mountains National Park, in the Sally Gap, which stretches along the Liffey Valley, near Kippure Mountain, County Wicklow. Wallaces escape on horseback from Mornays castle, after bloodily crushing his skull, filmed at Blessington Lakes, where a 45-foot tower was specially constructed for the leap into the water (and, dont worry, thats a mechanical horse. Covering 5, 000 acres, the lakes were formed in the 1940s by the building of the Poulaphouca Dam to provide electricity and water for the Dublin region. If you're visiting, the lakes also offer opportunities for fishing, sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. Not far from Blessington Lakes, the ‘Battle of Falkirk was staged in fields outside the town of Ballymore Eustace. In 2004, the sets for Antoine Fuqua s King Arthur, with Clive Owen, were built on the same spot. Curragh Plain, a 5000 acre tract of land between Newbridge and Kildare, Co Kildare, scoured flat during the Ice Age and now well known as a horse breeding area, was used for the ‘Battle of Stirling Bridge which – as the name suggests – was famously fought on a bridge. The scene required six weeks to shoot, with nine cameras and 2000 extras. But no bridge. Braveheart location: Longshanks castle: Bective Abbey, Ireland, Photograph: Flickr Sitomon About five miles northeast of Trim is Bective Abbey, a Cistercian abbey on the River Boyne in Bective, County Meath, which served as the courtyard of Longshanks castle, and also supplied the dungeons in which Wallace is imprisoned. ‘Westminster Abbey, where the preposterously fey Prince Edward (the future Edward II) reluctantly marries Isabella, is the 15th century St Nicholas Church, Dunsany Castle, in the townland of Dunsany (Dun Samhnaigh or Dun Samhna) between Trim and the village of Dunshaughlin in County Meath. The name Dunsany might be familiar to fans of fantasy and science fiction. The estate was home to writer Lord Dunsany, an influential exponent of the genre. ‘Edinburgh Castle, the base of Robert the Bruce where Wallace is finally taken by the English, is the tall, square-towered Dunsoghly Castle, dating from 1450 – and the only castle in Ireland to retain its original medieval trussed roof. Its about two miles northwest of Finglas, northern Dublin off the N2 between Kilshane Bridge and Pass If You Can, but not open to the public. Although filmed in Ireland for the movie, the real site of William Wallace s torture and execution in 1305 was West Smithfield in London, EC1. The spot, once a cloth fair and marketplace, was the citys regular site for spectacularly gruesome executions. A memorial to Wallace, usually festooned with flowers and various tartans, can be seen on Smithfield s southeast side.
Enraged at the slaughter of Murron, his new bride and childhood love, legendary Scottish warrior William Wallace slays a platoon of the local English lords soldiers. This leads the village to revolt and, eventually, the entire country to rise up against English rule.
