This is the kinda medieval flick that you wanna see when you go to the movies; it's what Gladiator and Rob Roy were too. I really enjoyed the action, the period detail, battle scenes great, plus Mel plays this guy just the way you wanna see him played-driven, tortured, focused.
It does have its gory moments, and no, it might not be a documentary as far's the historical events go-of that I'm not sure, nor do I care per se. Gibson has given us a very good film; it's a shame they don't make them like this more often.
Did it deserve to beat out 'Apollo 13' for the Oscar? I donno. But it was a good choice seems to me.

Watch Braveheart - Den okuvlige Online Download, Braveheart - Den okuvlige Without Membership' Braveheart - Den okuvlige) dual audio. I t is impressive the number of high-end watches that Bovet comes out with on an annual basis. Among the most complicated models they have recently released, most of them have Amadeo-style convertible cases, and many fall under the Virtuoso family – like the Bovet Virtuoso VII that I reviewed here. This model looks a bit like an Amadeo Virtuoso piece, but isn’t; instead, what we have here is the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Tourbillon Braveheart – and it feels a lot like a Virtuoso but with a cooler name. Let’s check out what interesting surprises Bovet put into this rather exclusive timepiece. The name “Braveheart” conjures up a lot of memories for me – all of which revolve around the classic Mel Gibson movie about him fighting the English in Scotland. I think of the great fight scenes, the cool face paint, and the incredible sound track. Sadly, the masterpiece of a score was done by James Horner who recently passed away, quite young, actually. I had a chance to meet him one time and he was a super sweet guy. Anyhow, knowing that most people would imagine the film, what relevance does “Braveheart” have to this watch? I’m actually not entirely sure, but I think it has to do something with the fact that this watch doesn’t use a regulation system like that in most other watches – and there is a series of at least three important parts to it. First is the fact that rather than using a traditional hairspring like most mechanical watches, the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Tourbillon Braveheart uses a cylindrical hairspring as part of the regulation system of the watch, which timepiece lovers also often happen to warmly refer to as the “heart” of the watch. Is a cylindrical hairspring “braver” than a standard flat one? Maybe, if you are a watchmaker… Does a cylinder-shaped hairspring do something different or better than a flat one? Well, theoretically, a cylindrical hairspring offers a bit more isochronism, which means more consistent accuracy over time. You might recall seeing cylindrical hairsprings on other watches from companies such as the Jaeger-LeCoultre, with the Duometre Spherotourbillon and the Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Cylindrique Quantieme Perpetual Calendar. In terms of real-world performance, I don’t really know if the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Tourbillon Braveheart or other timepieces with cylinder-style hairsprings are more accurate, but they look really cool, and when anything in a mechanical movement appears more three-dimensional, we all benefit as a result. The second interesting element to the in-house made Bovet Dimier caliber 17BM02AI22J (sexy name, right? ) movement is the fact that it also doesn’t use a traditional balance wheel. In fact, it isn’t really a wheel at all, but rather, a “felly. ” This three-prong balance device has three weighted sides, and the idea was to both reduce weight and improve aerodynamics to reduce air drag. Bovet also designed the “balance felly” to be fully adjusted for inertia to ensure the best performance. This patented device within the movement is a further point of visual interest and mechanical distinction helping the beating heart to be that much more brave. Of course, the entire regulation system spins on its own axis, as it is a tourbillon. It also happens to be a flying tourbillon with a new system (also patented by Bovet) which is designed to increase efficiency as well as improve the view of the tourbillon from either side of the case. Recall that because this Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Tourbillon Braveheart watch has an Amadeo-style case, the wearer can choose to wear the timepiece with either side being on top… and yes, the watch has a dial to read the time on each side. All of the above areas of uniqueness are said to be about improving chronometric performance, but of course, Bovet (like most watch makers) does not make actual claims about accuracy. In a sense, to most collectors, the actual performance is less important than the idea that the movement was designed to perform better and is thus unique (and has an interesting story). I’d actually like to see a return to brands mentioning actual performance ratings rather than merely waxing poetic on how hard they worked to create an accurate watch. It Is like they get the consumer all excited about this cool technology to increase the accuracy of a mechanical watch and there is no reward at the end of explaining how accurate they are. So we will never know if the six patented elements inside of the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Tourbillon Braveheart make for a truly high-performance mechanical timing machine or rather one that is just designed to theoretically work better. Despite the performance enhancing tech, the movement inside of the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Tourbillon Braveheart actually has a rather low 18, 000 bph (2. 5Hz) frequency. If the watch had all that new stuff and was at least a 4hz movement, I think I would be a bit more impressed. Nevertheless, the manually-wound movement does have a long 22 days of power reserve (along with a handy power reserve indicator). More so, the movement displays the time differently on each side of the watch. One has a dial for the time with traditional hour and minute hands, while the other side has a traditional hour hand that is topped with a retrograde minute hand. The movement also happens to be quite beautiful not just in design but also in decoration. On the latter front, you have a welcome amount of polishing and finishing, but also some lovely hand-engraving – which, thankfully, doesn’t feel like “too much. ” Also, note the view on one side of the dial of the crown winding system that uses an interesting looking “spherical” gear to wind both of the large mainspring barrels at the same time. Given the dual-sided and skeletonized view of the movement, you can not only see right through it, but you can also see the movement’s operating parts in extremely exposed detail. The Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Tourbillon Braveheart case is a larger 45. 2mm wide and available in 18k red gold, 18k white gold, or platinum. Moreover, among those models are a range of limited edition or piece unique models going up to over a million dollars in price. Again, the Amadeo-style case is designed to be convertible, which means you can wear the watch with either side up, and use the watch as a pocketwatch, pendant, or desk clock. The Amadeo case is, of course, inspired by traditional pocket watches which one reason why the crown and “ribbon-style” crown guard are at 12 o’clock. Impressive and interesting, the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Tourbillon Braveheart watch is nevertheless exclusively an exotic treat at an exotic price. I don’t know if I’d wear one everyday (assuming I could afford it) but somewhere among these many interesting and nicely detailed tourbillon watches made in-house at Bovet is something for every aspirational (or actual) luxury watch owner. All the iterations of the watch are limited editions of 30 pieces, and there is one piece unique model in platinum with a matching bracelet that is covered with diamonds. Price for the Bovet Amadeo Fleurier Tourbillon Braveheart watch as seen here is $557, 700 in 18k red gold. It is $569, 200 in 18k white gold, and models with diamonds range in price from $632, 500 – $646, 600. The piece unique Braveheart in platinum (with bracelet) and diamonds is $1, 161, 500.

Full movie braveheart - den oblige. Well, here's one heck of a movie that Mr. Gibson's given to us all. It should especially appeal to anyone in a lousy job who dreams of revolting against daily oppression. You'll probably leave the theatre thinking your life will never be the same. but let's face it, it's only a movie and you'll be back to playing "Metal Gear Solid" in a day and thinking maybe someday you'll get to that script you've always wanted to write.
Still, it's a damn good movie. Just make sure you see it widescreen. Full movie braveheart - den obliged.

Full movie braveheart - den obliger. 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. [4] 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. [5] 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 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 Production Producer Alan Ladd Jr. initially had the project at MGM-Pathé Communications when he picked up the script from Wallace. [6] When MGM was going through new management in 1993, Ladd left the studio and took some of its top properties, including Braveheart. [7] 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. [6] 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. [3] 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. [8] [3] Principal photography on the film began on June 6, 1994. [9] 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. [10] Principal photography ended on October 28, 1994. [11] The film was shot in the anamorphic format with Panavision C- and E-Series lenses. [12] 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. [14] 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. [15] Soundtrack 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 Box office 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. [2] Worldwide, the film grossed $210, 409, 945 and was the thirteenth-highest-grossing film of 1995. [2] Critical response 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. [16] 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. [23] Effect on tourism The European premiere was on September 3, 1995, in Stirling. [24] 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. [25] 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. [26] 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. [27] 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 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. [28] 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. [29] [30] [31] The film also won the Writer's Guild of America Award for Best Original Screenplay.

[40] Wallace Monument Tom Church's statue 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. [44] Historical inaccuracy 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. [45] 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. [48] It has been described as one of the most historically inaccurate modern films. [5] 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. [51] 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. [5] 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. [5] Jus primae noctis 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 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. [57] After Alexander III death in 1286 his granddaughter Margaret, Maid of Norway, succeeded to the throne of Scotland until her death in 1290 in Orkney. 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 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. [58] 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 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. [61] [5] Portrayal of Robert the Bruce 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. [63] His title before becoming king was Earl of Carrick, not Earl of Bruce. [64] Portrayal of Longshanks and Prince Edward 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. [65] 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. [67] 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 Sir Philip Mowbray was never murdered by Edward I. Edward I died in 1307, with Mowbray living past his death, until 1318. [70] [71] Wallace's military campaign "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. [72] 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 [73] (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. [74] 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) [75] 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. [76] Accusations of Anglophobia Sections of the English media accused the film of harboring Anglophobia. The Economist called it " xenophobic ", [77] and John Sutherland writing in The Guardian stated that: " Braveheart gave full rein to a toxic Anglophobia". [78] [79] [80] In The Times, Colin McArthur said "the political effects are truly pernicious. It's a xenophobic film. " [79] 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". [81] Home media Braveheart was released on DVD on August 29, 2000. [82] It was released on Blu-ray as part of the Paramount Sapphire Series on September 1, 2009. [83] It was released on 4K UHD Blu-ray as part of the 4K upgrade of the Paramount Sapphire Series on May 15, 2018. [83] Sequel 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.

DO not use this movie as a history lesson, it only vaguely follows the truth. Its definitley a great watch for hollywood movie buffs, however its as much a work of fiction as it is a work of fact, Wallace was not a poor poor peace loving man when his partner was killed. He was already systematically killing English soldiers at every possible chance he had, He killed the Sheriffs son for a smart comment he made to him about Wallaces brightly coloured dress, the sherrif then killed her in retribution. Where was the bridge at the battle of Stirling bridge? The british army were cut off when only part of their army had crosed the bridge before the scots slaughtered them. At Falkirk British archers cut holes in the lines of the scots pikemen and the cavalry then set about decimating them. The British Queen was a child at the time.

Braveheart ist der Titel des 1995 erschienen Films „Braveheart“. Regie führte Mel Gibson, der zugleich die Hauptrolle im Film übernahm. Der Film skizziert das Leben des schottischen Trompetenbauers William Wallace (eigentlich Wilhelm „Gaylord“ Walljuke) mit einem starken (ungewollten) satirischen Einschlag und wurde so erfolgreich, dass Gibson später die Rolle des William Wallace in der Sitcom Wally & Jim noch einmal übernahm. Handlung Der Film spielt Ende des 13., Anfang des 14. Jahrhunderts in Schottland, Großbritannien. England wird von der grausamen Tyrannin Queen Walpurgis II., genannt „The Longbreast“ regiert. Die Herrschaft über die schottischen Hoch- und Tieflande hatte sie vor Jahren schon durch die hinterlistigste aller diplomatischen Verhandlungsweisen, dem „ Krieg “, an sich gerissen. Unter dem Vorwand, den Schotten neue Röcke als Zeichen der Versöhnung schenken zu wollen, lässt sie die schottischen Großbauern bei einem Meeting erhängen. Die schottischen Bauern schließen sich darauf zu einer Armee von 20 Mann zusammen und ziehen in eine symbolische Schlacht gegen die Engländer. Die Schlacht endet unspektakulär, da die Schotten schon aus der Ferne mit Pfeilen der walisischen Bogenschützen ausgeschaltet werden. Unter den 20 Opfern befinden sich auch William Wallaces Vater, seine Brüder Arfoyl, Mureck, Bennexshit, Flousenhold, Meriadock und Brandibock, sowie seine Mutter, seine vier Tanten und sechs seiner Onkel, sein Großvater und dessen Cousin 2. Grades. Zu dieser Zeit ist William neun Jahre alt. Nach dem damals geltenden schottischen bäuerlichen Ehrenkodex hätte er in diesem Alter eigentlich mit seinem Clan in den Kampf ziehen müssen, hatte sich mit einer lächerlichen Ausrede von wegen Hausaufgaben, davor gedrückt. Darauf wird er von seinem Onkel Argyle, der „zufälligerweise“ zu spät zu der Schlacht erschienen ist und somit auch um nichts besser war, bis nach Rom geprügelt. Dort lernt William Russisch, Portugiesisch, Latein, Französisch, walisisches und schottisches Englisch. Letzteres beherrscht er aber nie wirklich. Auch lernte er Trompetenbauen, was bald zu einer großen Leidenschaft für William werden sollte. Zurück in Schottland eröffnet er eine Werkstatt, in der er täglich Trompeten herstellt. Mel Gibson als William Wallace in Braveheart Erst Jahre später im Alter von 14 lernt er die bezaubernde Roberta, eine 44-jährige australische aborigine Frau, die auf einem Floß bis nach Schottland gereist war, kennen. Sie verlieben sich auf den ersten Blick und heiraten noch am selben Abend. Die Freude währt nur kurz. Robertas Bauch wird von Tag zu Tag dicker und die Vermutung, dass sie schwanger ist, stellt sich schon bald als wahr heraus. Da William das alles zu schnell geht, lässt er sich eine Woche nach ihrer Eheschließung scheiden. Die Scheidungsfeierlichkeiten sind voll im Gange, als der englische Priester und gleichzeitig Hauptmann Rudolf Roberta zum koitalen Verkehr zwingt. Dabei reißt sich Roberta versehentlich bei einem Kreuz, das in der Hand des Priesters liegt, die Kehle auf. Als William seine Ex-Frau tot in den Armen des Engländers liegen sieht, erschlägt er eben jenen mit dem Bumerang, den ihm seine Ex in der Hochzeitsnacht ins Gesicht geworfen hat. Dies ist der Anfang der nun folgenden Revolte. Schlacht bei Stirling Überall im Lande erheben sich die schottischen Bauern, selbst die, die normalerweise länger schlafen, und vertreiben die englischen Edelleute aus ihren Holzburgen. Ja, sogar die englischen Huren werden aus ihren Etablissements vertrieben und zurück nach London geschickt. Als die Queen, die immer höher werdende Hurenrate in den englischen Städten bemerkt, erkennt sie, was passiert ist und sendet sofort eine Armee aus. Bei Stirling findet die erste Schlacht zwischen den Schotten, Engländern und Franzosen statt. Die Franzosen wollten eigentlich schwimmen gehen, werden aber ungewollt ins Gemetzel mit hineingezogen. Auf Seiten der Schotten hat sich eine Armee von 1. 600 Mann versammelt, die sich mit einer zahlenmäßig gleichwertigen, jedoch qualitativ überlegenen englischen Armee konfrontiert sieht. Die Schotten gewinnen die Schlacht nur durch den Scharfsinn ihres Anführers William. Dieser hatte zuvor 10 Meter lange Speere anfertigen lassen, die die schottischen Soldaten auf die englischen Bogenschützen warfen. Auch bewies er mit seiner vorher festgelegten Devise „ Quantität statt Qualität “ sein taktisches Geschick, indem er 1. 500 Bauern mit Trompeten bewaffnet in die schwere englische Kavallerie laufen lässt. Dabei setzt er auch gezielt Verwirrung ein. Da kein englischer Ritter mit einem Angriff mit Blasinstrumenten rechnet, ergreifen sie bald die Flucht. Weiterhin schaltet er durch eine Finte die englischen Speerträger aus, indem er dem berittenen Adel befiehlt abzusitzen und lediglich die Pferde in die feindliche Speermauer reiten zu lassen, während die Adelsleute anschließend per pedes die nun völlig verstörten und mit Pferdeleichen bedeckten Lanzenkämpfer in einem Frontalangriff aufreibt. Die Schlacht ist mit hohen Verlusten verbunden, vor allem für die Schotten. Auch die Franzosen sahen ganz schlecht aus, da die Soldaten weder Waffen noch Rüstungen getragen hatten. Die Eroberung Yorks Als William Wallace noch auf dem Schlachtfeld in seinem Blutrausch aus dem Schädel des toten englischen Generals trinkt und dabei verkündet, dass er nun mit dem Rest der Armee in England einmarschieren will, verärgert das die Adeligen sehr. Ein paar Tage später verkünden sie in einer Versammlung, dass sie bei solch einer Aktion nicht mitmachen werden. William Wallace entblößt sich daraufhin und greift zu seiner Trompete. Er läuft blasend durch die schottischen Dörfer und versammelt bald wieder eine starke Streitmacht, mit der er die englische Stadt York erobert. Auch diesmal sind die Engländer vor der List des „ Gaylords “ nicht gefeilt und werden von den seltsamen verstimmten Trompetenklängen, die die Schotten im nahe liegenden Wald erzeugen, derartig genervt, dass sie die Tore öffnen und einen Erkundungstrupp aussenden. Die englischen Kundschafter fallen alle unter den Trompeten der Schotten. Verkleidet als Engländer wird den Schotten nun das Tor zur Stadt geöffnet. Sie kämpfen sich bis zum Stadthalter durch, der gerade sein Schwert mit der rechten Hand schleift. Wallace erschlägt den Stadthalter mit einem gezielten Trompetenhieb, sprich einem Schlag in die Leiste. Er entfernt dessen Penis und sendet ihn in einem Körbchen per Pferdeexpress nach London zur Queen. Die Queen sieht sich dazu veranlasst, die gut gebaute französische Prinzessin, die mit ihrem Sohn Prinz Charles vermählt ist, aber mit ihren 18 Jahren noch keinerlei sexuelle Erfahrungen gemacht hat, nach York zu schicken, um mit dem „Barbaren“ zu verhandeln. Wallace aber überhört die Botschaft der Prinzessin, da er zu sehr damit beschäftigt ist, sie zu penetrieren. Nach einer heißen Nummer, kehrt die Prinzessin zurück nach London und geht duschen. Da sich die Dusche direkt im Saal des königlichen Kriegsrates befindet, lauscht sie dem Gespräch der Queen und ihrer Generäle und muss feststellen, dass der Quickie mit Wallace nur ein Ablenkungsmanöver war, da die Königin bereits vor Wochen Truppen entsandt hatte, die die Schotten komplett auslöschen sollten. Noch unbekleidet eilt sie zu ihrer Kutsche, um William zu warnen. Bei ihm angekommen wird sie wieder nur penetriert, hinterlässt ihm aber diesmal eine schriftliche Botschaft. William kann die hässliche Schrift der Prinzessin aber nicht entziffern und verwendet das Papier anderweitig. Erst sein schwuler irischer Lustknabe Stephen erzählt ihm von einer riesigen englischen Streitmacht, die sich auf York zubewegt. Schlacht bei Falkirk Wallace beginnt sofort mit der Mobilisierung seiner Armee. Diesmal sollen auch die Kinder und Krüppel mitkämpfen. Auch Frauen bekämen jetzt ihre geforderte Gleichberechtigung, wenn sie Seite an Seite mit ihren Männern sterben. Die nächste Schlacht findet bei Falkirk statt. Doch auch hier ist William nicht nachsichtig und bereitet Fallen vor. In der Früh lässt er das Feld auf dem sich die englische Armee aller Voraussicht nach versammeln wird, mit Unmengen an Wasser zuschütten, das anschließend mit Brandpfeilen inmitten der feindlichen Truppen entzündet werden sollte. Außer Wallace ist sich keiner sicher, ob der Plan so funktionieren würde. Doch traut sich keiner etwas zu sagen, da Wallace Freidenker meist in der Öffentlichkeit anpisst oder seine Trompete auf eine ungebräuchliche peinliche Art und Weise verwendet, um die Freidenker als „homosexuelle Anal-Bläser“ (Zitat aus dem Film) bloßzustellen. Sein irischer Freund garantiert ihm die Unterstützung der irischen Truppen, die die Engländer ins Feld führen werden. Auch der schottische Adel hat sich seiner Armee angeschlossen und stellt die leichte Kavallerie. Die obligatorischen schwulen Pferde, die mit der Handlung nichts zu tun haben Am Tag der Schlacht versammeln sich die Armeen in Gegenüberaufstellung. Die Iren jedoch stehen auf der falschen Seite, nämlich direkt hinter der schottischen Streitmacht. War es doch geplant, dass sie die Engländer glauben lassen, für sie zu kämpfen, sich aber bei der ersten Attacke den Schotten anschließen würden. Zwar ein wenig stutzig über diesen Umstand, schickt Wallace aber nichtsdestotrotz den ersten Brandpfeilhagel in die feindlichen Truppen. Wie von seinen Männern erwartet, zeigt diese Aktion nicht den gewünschten Effekt und Wallace beschwert sich beim Adel, warum sie nicht „stärkeres“ Wasser gekauft hatten. Wallaces Wutausbruch wird just mit einem Pfeilregen von Seiten der Engländer unterbrochen. Es ist bereits zu spät, als die Schotten bemerken, dass sie in der ganzen Aufregung ums Schminken und Anprobieren der Röcke vergessen hatten, ihre Schilde einzupacken und nun werden sie durch die feindlichen Fernkämpfer stark dezimiert. William bläst zum Angriff. Die gesamte Infanterie setzt sich in Bewegung und stößt mit den englischen Soldaten in der Mitte zusammen. Die Iren jedoch verraten die Schotten und fangen an, sie von hinten abzustechen. Wallace greift zur Flagge, um der Adelskavallerie zu signalisieren, den irischen Bauern in den Rücken zu fallen. Doch die Adeligen machen sich aus dem Staub. Erst da bemerkt Wallace, dass die Flagge ausgetauscht worden ist und statt der Aufschrift „Furk us! “, gälisch für „Helft uns! “, nun „Furk off! “ zu lesen war, was soviel bedeutet, wie „Zieht euch zurück! “ Der Verantwortliche für dieses Desaster war Stephen, der Ire. Wallace erkennt seine verzweifelte Lage und ergreift die Flucht. Dabei verwendet er kleinere Schotten als Schilde gegen die Schwerter der Feinde. Als er dann doch einem englischen Ritter gegenübersteht, zieht er seine Trompete und kämpft. Er bringt den Ritter zu Fall, lässt ihn aber am Leben und muss mit Entsetzen feststellen, dass seine Ex unter der Rüstung des Feindes steckt. Wallace ist mit der Situation überfordert und fängt aufs Schlimmste an zu kotzen. Stephen, der Verräter, beobachtet das Spektakel und empfindet Mitleid mit William. Auch hat er schwere Gewissensbisse, wegen der Sache mit der Schlacht und entschließt sich ihn zu retten. Er bringt ihn auf seinem weißen Ross nach Hause und pflegt ihn wieder gesund. Verrat und Hinrichtung Wallaces Die schottische Armee ist zwar geschlagen, doch William lässt sich nicht unterkriegen und versammelt neue Bauern unter seiner Flagge, um sich an den Engländern zu rächen. Er verzeiht Stephen, weil dieser ihm erklärt hat, dass der Verrat nicht ernst gemeint war. Und auch der Adel bekommt Williams Güte zu spüren. Er verteilt auf den Betten der Edelmänner Schokopralinen, zusammen mit Entschuldigungsbriefchen, in denen er erklärt, dass er unbeabsichtigt die falsche Fahne geschwenkt hat. Es scheint, als wären die Adeligen nach dieser süßen und kreativen Idee bereit mit William aufs Neue zu verhandeln und laden ihn nach Ebersburg in Deutschland zu einer Konferenz ein. Sie richten ihm aus, dass es eigentlich seine Ex ist, die dieses Treffen will, da sie starke Reue in sich trägt und vieles wieder gutzumachen hätte, von ihrem vorgetäuschten Tod bis zum Verrat bei Falkirk. Wallace macht sich also auf die weite Reise nach Ebersburg, wird dort aber diesmal von den Adeligen verraten und nach London gebracht, wo er im Big Ben eingesperrt wird. Seine Ex Roberta weiß nichts von dem Verrat und wartet noch viele Jahre in Ebersburg auf ihren William. William wird aufgefordert sich bei der englischen Königin zu entschuldigen, ungefragt Stress gemacht zu haben. Er spricht kein Wort, spielt aber eine gar liebliche schottische Melodei auf seiner Trompete, die er immer unter seinem Rock trägt, worauf er in den Kerker geworfen wird. Die französische Prinzessin besucht ihn dort, um ihn ein schmerzhemmendes Mittel zu verabreichen. Wallace verschüttet jedoch die Flüssigkeit, als er die Prinzessin aufs Neue penetriert und wird anschließend sofort hinaus zum Schafott geführt. Ihm wird zuerst der Rock und in Folge seine Trompete auf unmenschliche Art und Weise entfernt. Bevor er stirbt, schreit er mit letzter Kraft hinaus: „Die Trompete könnt ihr behalten, ihr englischen Pisser! “ und „raubt dem Film damit jegliche Ernsthaftigkeit und tötet außerdem die spärlichen Emotionen, die er bisher beim Zuschauer hervorgerufen hat. “ (Zitat MOVIE-SLUT) Kritik Der Film ist besonders durch seine sexuelle Feizügigkeit ins Kreuzfeuer der Kritik geraten. „Zu wenig Blut, zu wenig Gewalt, dafür ein Übermaß an sexistischem Schotten-Geprolle“, schrieb die Wurzel-Filmschau in ihrer September-Ausgabe 1995. „ Die Szenen mit der französischen Hure sind viel zu freizügig. Weiters erschleicht dem Zuschauer ein ungutes Gefühl bei der Betrachtung hunderter Kilt-tragender Männer, die in einer Schlacht mit erigierten Gliedern Köpfe abschlagen und nicht zu selten ihre Röcke verlieren. Der Regisseur zeigt damit keinerlei Bedenken, dass solche Szenen als nicht fernsehtauglich eingestuft werden könnten. Auch wird der Zusammenhang zwischen Wallaces Trompete und den sexuellen Handlungen mit der französischen Hofnutte nicht klar. “ Scharf wurde auch die Schlussszene kritisiert, da sie nicht nur die aufgebaute emotionale Spannung in einem Zug zerschlägt, aber auch weil sie William Wallace nicht erlaubt als glorreicher Nationalheld abzutreten, sondern als ein perverser schottischer Bauer, der ungebildet und unbeholfen wirkt. Mel Gibson nahm keine direkte Stellungnahme zu den Kritiken, antwortete darauf aber auf seiner Website mit einem Bild seines erigierten Penises. Oft wurden auch die Ungeklärtheiten des Films kritisiert. Man erfährt beispielsweise nie, wieso Williams Frau Roberta doch noch am Leben ist und aus welchem Grund sie bei Falkirk auf Seiten der Engländer kämpft. Film vs. Realität Hätten sich die Produzenten mehr an die Realität gehalten, hätte der Film möglicherweise ein Kassenschlager werden können. Es ist nicht alles so, wie es scheint... William Wallace zieht im Film mit 14 Jahren in den Krieg. Hier sind sich Historiker aber relativ einig: William war zur Schlacht bei Stirling mindestens 26 und starb vermutlich im Alter von 35 und nicht mit 18, wie im Film dargestellt. Williams Onkel Argyle trägt im Film ein drittes Auge auf dem Hinterkopf, was natürlich keinen geschichtlichen Wert hat. Mel Gibson hat sich möglicherweise von den schriftlichen Überlieferungen über Argyles Fähigkeit sogar hinter ihm befindliche Feinde „sehen“ zu können, verleiten lassen das zu wörtlich zu nehmen. Die Chancen, dass zur damaligen Zeit eine Aboriginefrau auf einem Floß nach Schottland gekommen ist, sind so verschwindend gering, dass es wahrscheinlicher ist, dass eine überdimensionierte, lebende Rosskastanie auf Seiten der Schotten gekämpft hat. Es könnte aber auch einfach sein, dass hier der schottische Thronfolger Robert The Bruce (~Roberta The Bride = Roberta, die Braut) wegen seiner (nicht bewiesenen) dunklen Hautfarbe und weiblichen Züge der künstlerischen Freiheit Mel Gibsons zum Opfer gefallen ist. Die Queen wird als stämmige und bärtige Frau mit tiefer Stimme dargestellt. Oft ist man verleitet zu glauben, dass sie ein Mann sei. Möglicherweise war sich Mel Gibson unsicher, ob zu jener Zeit die Königin oder der König das Sagen hatte und löste dieses Problem durch ein unbeholfenes, scheußliches Zwitterwesen, dem die Brüste bis zur Hüfte hängen. William verwendet im Kampf gegen die Engländer eine 1, 50 Meter lange Trompete. Es ist weder geschichtlich bewiesen, dass Wallace ein Trompetenbauer war, noch dass seine Trompete derartige Ausmaße annehmen konnte. Es wird vermutet, dass seine Trompete eien Schallbecher von bis zu 20 Zentimeter haben konnte. In den Szenen mit der französischen Prinzessin wird seine Trompete übertrieben lang dargestellt. Im Film werden in der Schlacht bei Stirling die Franzosen in Mitleidenschaft gezogen. In Wirklichkeit waren es die Wikinger, die mit ihren Schiffen flussaufwärts gesegelt waren und bei Stirling Bridge gezwungenermaßen anhalten mussten und zwischen die Fronten gerieten. Es waren die Wikinger, die unter hohen Verlusten unbewaffnet und nackt den Schotten als eine Art Kanonenfutter dienten und von diesen gnadenlos in die englischen Linien gedrückt wurden. Das führte dazu, dass die Schotten über die Leichenberge der Wikinger drüberklettern und in die inzwischen erschöpften und zerrissenen Reihen der Engländer dringen konnten. Historiker bestreiten, dass die angewandte Strategie Wallace, die im Film geschichtlich akkurat nachgestellt wurde, von Erfolg geprägt gewesen wäre, hätten die nackten Wikinger doch nicht als Schwertbarriere gegen die Engländer dienen können. Mel Gibson wollte mit der Einbringung der Franzosen wohl lediglich auf den Konflikt zwischen England und Frankreich hindeuten. William Wallace hat in seinem gesamten Leben kein Wort mit einem Iren gewechselt, geschweige denn mit einen schwulen Iren Seite an Seite gekämpft. Der Wallace-Clan hat entgegen den Darstellungen im Film nie ein Swastika in seinem Wappen getragen. Wallace wurde in den Tower of London gesperrt, der Big Ben wurde erst zwei Jahre nach seiner Hinrichtung errichtet. Ebenso ist das Wallace Monument, dass in der Mitte des Films von Wallace und seinen Männern verteidigt wird, erst Ende des zu Ehren Wallaces gebaut worden. Spaghetti sind kein schottisches Nationalgericht. Der englische General bei Stirling Bridge trägt ein Samuraischwert (Katana). Es ist sehr unwahrscheinlich, dass so eine Waffe im mittelalterlichen England eingesetzt wurde. Nicht nur der kulturelle Hintergrund der Waffe bestätigt dass, auch die Tatsache, dass diese Waffe erst im entwickelt wurde, verringert wohl seine seine geschichtliche Relevanz. Es gibt noch viele Ungereimtheiten, die alle im 512 Seiten starken Buch „The Braveheart Error Chronicles“ nachzulesen sind. Auszeichnungen History-Breaker Award (Ever): Diese Auszeichnung ist mehr ein Titel, der immer wieder neu vergeben wird. Braveheart löst mit seinen extremen geschichtlichen Verzerrungen den bisherigen Titelträger „The Timecrashers“ (1923) ab und ist bis dato unbestrittener Verteidiger des Titels, der ihn als Film mit den meisten geschichtlichen Unstimmigkeiten auszeichnet. Weitere „Auszeichnungen“ erhielt der Film 1995 für die schlechtste Kameraführung, den höchsten Grad an pornografischer Darstellung in einem nicht-pornografischen Film und das schlechteste Drehbuch.
