Braveheart Review.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

JT/King Valun at The Window on the South requested that we review a "Braveheart" movies so we watched and here it is.

Thoughts: We had very high expectations for it and it was close to our expectations. It is definitely making our Top 50 Movies. After watching it, being the fans of history we are, we wondered how munch of it was historically accurate. It was very inaccurate,which isn't necessarily a bad thing, two of the main characters ages were way off like. French princess Isabelle who at the time of The Battle Falkirk was three years old. If you have seen the movie you would know that would mean that a major point in the plot would not be there. And Edward son of Longshanks was not born until seven years after William Wallance's uprising. And The Battle of Stirling Bridge was missing the bridge. Not to mention that the Kilt was not worn by the Scots until a few hundred years later. The movie actually loosely based on the Historical Ballad by Blind Harry's Wallace.

We really don't mind that the movie is Historically inaccurate because it is a movie and it is fiction with some of the movie being based on fact.

Plot: The following plot summery is copied from
In the 13th century, after several years of political unrest, Scotland is invaded and conquered by King Edward I of England (known as "Longshanks") (Patrick McGoohan). Longshanks summons the defeated Scottish nobles to a meeting, but instead of discussing terms as they were led to expect, he simply hangs them en masse.
Young William Wallace witnesses the treachery of Longshanks, survives the death of his father and brother, and is taken abroad by his uncle where he is educated. Many years later, Longshanks grants his noblemen land and privileges in Scotland, including Primae Noctis, the right of the lord to take a newly married Scottish woman into his bed on the wedding night. When he returns home, Wallace (Mel Gibson), intending to live peacefully, falls in love with his childhood sweetheart Murron MacClannough (Catherine McCormack), and they marry in secret so that she does not have to spend a night in the bed of the English lord.
Their marriage is eventually discovered and when an English soldier tries to rape Murron, Wallace fights off several soldiers and the two attempt to flee. But Murron is captured and publicly executed by the village sheriff, who proclaims "an assault on the King's soldiers is the same as an assault on the King himself." In retribution, Wallace and several villagers slaughter the English garrison and execute the sheriff. Watch the movie to see what happens next.
