In drawing out the first act this film works seamlessly, it is Shakespearean in its quality - the star crossed lovers of William and Murren and then again with Princess Isabella - bring it to great heights. The battle scenes are unmatched.
I did not even care about the jesus-ifiing of Wallace that I noticed this time or all the pro-religion pro-proletarian undertones or the hokey parts with the Irish, it works so well.

Also it was wonderful to see Patrick McGoohan in his last superhit movie.
