Braveheart is beautifully shot, well-acted, and offers an interesting, but an untruthful, story about what many believe to be a great Scotsman.
FFFRREEEEDDDOOOOMMMMM!!!!!!! That one word in an iconic scene made Braveheart a memorable movie. Released in 1995, the film earned director and star Mel Gibson (the Lethal Weapon series) two academy awards. The story is based on fictionalized tales of William Wallis, a Scottish patriot, and leader who defended his country against the tyranny brought forth by the King of England, Edward “Longshanks”. While previously released on 4K Blu-ray, Paramount Pictures has decided to team up with Best Buy to sell a 25th-anniversary special edition 4K SteelBook of the film. Braveheart, along with another iconic film, Gladiator, are two special editions that fans will want to go out and get (or order online during Covid-19 quarantine).
William Wallis (Gibson) lived in Scotland in 1290. Years earlier, as a child, he witnessed the deaths of several Scottish noblemen who were lured by the promises of King Edward of England. The King then made the people Scotland his subjects and ruled over them from afar. When William’s father and older brother left to avenge the deaths of the other nobles, he didn’t realize it would be the last time he would see them alive. William was then taken in by his Uncle, who traveled with William throughout Europe where he was well educated. — More
