  • Quite simply one of the FINEST movies EVER made. For the sheer spectacle, epicness, goosebump moments, meaningful quotes, music, performances, direction, cinematography, effects and grandeur ... this is AS GOOD AS IT GETS.
  • Worthy winner of five Oscars. However we're a bit shocked Randall Wallace didn't pick up the Oscar for Best Screenplay written directly for the screen (he did get nominated). In terms of pure power of the dialogue, we don't think anything matches Braveheart. A bold statement, yes, but we mean it.
  • Mel Gibson made himself Immortal in the film industry, after producing, directing and starring in this movie, HIS movie.
Mel Gibson stars on both sides of the camera, playing the lead role plus directing and producing this brawling, richly detailed saga of fierce combat, tender love and the will to risk all that's precious: freedom. In an emotionally charged performance, Gibson is William Wallace, a bold Scotsman who used the steel of his blade and the fire of his intellect to rally his countrymen to liberation...
Narrator #2
[last lines][voiceover] In the Year of our Lord 1314, patriots of Scotland - starving and outnumbered - charged the fields of Bannockburn. They fought like warrior poets; they fought like Scotsmen, and won their freedom.
Robert the Bruce
You have bled with Wallace, now bleed with me.
Young William Wallace
Malcolm Wallace
I can fight.I know. I know you can fight. But it's our wits that make us men.
William Wallace
Princess Isabelle
Why do you help me?Because of the way you are looking at me now.
William Wallace
Veteran
Young Soldier
And if this is your army, why does it go?We didn't come here to fight for them!Home! The English are too many!Sons of Scotland! I am William Wallace.William Wallace is seven feet tall!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.

[Scottish army laughs]

I *am* William Wallace! And I see a whole army of my countrymen, 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?Fight? Against that? No! We will run. And we will live.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 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!

[Scottish army cheers]

Alba gu bráth! ["Scotland forever!"]

[Army]:ALBA GU BRÁTH! ALBA GU BRÁTH! ALBA GU BRÁTH!
