as a scot i like it and there is some good violence in it but... academy award for best picture? whaaaaa?
Braveheart would be OK if it weren't for the rampant anti-Englishness, homophobia and having to see Mel Gibson do love scenes with not one but two women about half his age (though not at the same time).
and the complete arsing around with history, I don't expect a film to be 100% accurate but this was taking the piss at times.
from a film point of view the battle scenes are good but the underlying sentiment and distorted truth fucks me right off.
And any twat that has a Scottish braveheart tatt deserves to be hung drawn and quartered
as i recall it was actually really good. you started out as a wee clan in yr highland village, then had to rape, pillage and burn your way round scotland, before setting off towards london.
