Braveheart Reviews

As the star of the new, epic-scaled Braveheart, Gibson celebrates yet another man of selfless valor. And as its director, he displays some daring of his own.

A lavish, entertaining spectacle full of manly men, dastardly villains, rousing battles and women who easily see Mel's hero potential through all that messy hair.

Christian Science Monitor

The screenplay says repeatedly that thinking is more important than fighting, yet problems are always met with muscle-power in the movie, which wallows in violence and vengeance every chance it gets.

In addition to staging battle scenes well, Gibson also manages to recreate the filth and mood of 700 years ago.

Baltimore Sun

Braveheart is a stouthearted, old-fashioned hero movie in which honorable Scottish underdogs fight nasty British nobles. It lacks refinement, but it's a satisfying war story (and mediocre love story) in the grand Hollywood tradition.

Mel Gibson's Braveheart is a rousing, romantic battle epic featuring a cast of thousands, many without heads or arms.

Well-made but uneven, Braveheart has some grand moments -- but few pertain to Gibson's less than charismatic performance as the resourceful hero.

The movie is full of battle scenes, all of them interchangeable.

Good acting, shotmaking and a charismatic lead role alone won't grant you a pass to Kubrick country. Nor even to Costner country.

Mel Gibson throws his whole heart into a role. No one acts with more conviction, and his errors are honest ones.

Braveheart has a gut-wrenching, bone-breaking, sword-thwacking verve.

Many movies deal with battlefield heroics. Few seriously attempt to define heroism.

In this mix of historical tragedy and hip adventure, Gibson may be as galvanic a movie swashbuckler as Errol Flynn and Burt Lancaster were in their day.

The political argument that ensues is pretty dull, but the battle scenes are the loudest and most convincing in years: Gibson has learned from Kurosawa in lending a clarifying thrust to what is, essentially, chaos.

If you like your Hollywood to be as big, stirring and spectacular as possible, then there's no denying that Braveheart was one of the highpoints of '90s cinema.

It succeeds in bringing to life the reality of Scottish patriotism and brilliantly captures the spirit of revolution.
