Rated R – For Brutal Medieval Violence

178 minutes

Braveheart: The epic battle film “Braveheart” about William Wallace, the legendary Sottish warrior who led his nation into battle against the English.  What I remember about this film (and) why it made my list are the epic battle scenes which is pretty much the entire 178 minutes.  The battles are bloody and violent.  But what I also enjoyed about this film was the emotional roller coaster Mel Gibson takes me through during his movie.  The film was about love, and patriotism and blind faith.  It is also about revenge and betrayal.  This “Must Watch” is a real treat, I have never been to Scotland before but the Cinematography makes me feel as if I was there and makes me believe Scotland is very green, wet and muddy!

Favourite Quote: (there are many) – William Wallace: “Every man dies, not every man really lives.”
