The movie was released in 1995. Mel Gibson himself directed the movie and also acted as the protagonist named William Wallace. The “Braveheart”, a Scottish rebel leads a revolt against the English emperor known as King Edwards I after an English soldier rapes and kills his wife.
The sacrifices made during the revolt and the amount of courage and bravery required to lead a revolt against a powerful force are inconceivable. The violence shown in the movie serves its purpose by giving a strong message that freedom does not come for free. Sometimes it takes gruesome and horrible deaths to let one’s people taste what it is like to be free.
The extreme violence, as well as the human compassion in this movie, are overwhelming in its brilliancy. The battle of Stirling is one of the best parts of the movie that has been brought up beautifully in this wonderfully directed and acted movie by Mel Gibson. The movie earned 5 Academy Awards out of 10 nominations and 1 Golden Globe award.
