Or some kind of alcohol is what I meant. Nice to see a film with less historical accuracy than Star Wars getting the rating it deserves.

Overly romantic trivia
More dream than fact. Take it as a romantic Hollywood illusion...then it works as a film. Believe it, and you fail in your history exam.

Standard 'Hollywood; swashbuckling fodder
Its OK. Standard tale of the underdog besting the 'evil empire'. Star Wars is far better in this genre, and is probably more 'historically accurate' LOL. Sit down, let it wash over you and enjoy it for what it is.

How can this be rated 2.8? Is that all those English rating down for the sake of it? We all know it's historically inaccurate but so what, the film can stand on its own merit. IMDB gives it an 8.4/10 from 410,869 votes! So I'd tend to go with that rating rather than this ridiculous 2.8/10 rating. Shame!

A wild colonial boy
Gibson made some great films in his time. No nation likes to be seen as the villain hence the miserable rating on here for Braveheart, a better than average 'historical setting' action movie.

Och aye the noo
Has anyone noticed that Mel Gibson (dodgy ‘Scottish’ accent) never appears in any scenes with the excellent (star of the film) Patrick McGoohan (the nasty ‘English’ king)? In most films, the two adversaries always confront each other at the end. What was Mel afraid of? Was it the possibility it may have highlighted how weak Mel’s character acting talents were? Debate.

Who cares about how accurate it is?
I'm English, I couldnt give a damn how historically inacurate it is and how badly the English or anyone else is portrayed. Its a damn good film! Have a beer and chill out, and take it for the hollywood action film that it is. If you want a history lesson watch a documentary instead.

scots wearing skirts
This is a totally accurate film in that it shows the scots wearing skirts, which as we all know is one of their favourite pastimes. They call them kilts but thats just an excuse to wear womens clothing

Where does one begin?
Wallace's family came from Shropshire. He was a knight and wealthy land owner. Isabelle was about seven years of age and living in Paris when he was killed, the kilt came into being about 300 years after his death...etc. etc. etc. As a piece of film making, it's a trite, childish by the numbers story based around Mel's ENORMOUS ego.....nice battle scenes though, if you overlook the wrong weapons, clothing, hair etc. etc. Yawn

Where did the Normans go?
Wallace fought the Normans not the English. The Anglo Saxon English were a completely spent force under Norman occupation. Totally unable to exercise any power or control over their own lives, far less anyone else's, least of all the Scots and the Welsh. They were nothing more than Norman conscripts. At least the Scots managed to defeat the Normans which is more than the Engish ever did.

What a load of c...
@Sparky - Why you would think that people hate you English? The only thing that some of us is saying is that at the time, your Empire was forcing its ways right, left, middle and center. End of. If you don't like it, re-write your history. As far as the film is concerned, it is a great film, accurate or not. I've never seen so many votes for a movie + such a low-rating for an award Hollywood one. @Thomas, you are either in denial or very naive to think that our "assumption" as you put it is inaccurate= the ratings speak for themselves. Don't insult our intelligence and just admit it. Even the obscure Danny Dyer's deadliest men program is rated 2.6/10! C'mon..

The comments from Scots about the English "invading of the world". Learn some history about the British Empire, where many of the most controversial figures were Scottish (why not start with the Opium wars). Or how about the failed Scottish COLONY in Panama which bankrupted Scotland and forced them to seek Union?

Really funny
to see the comments from the Scots about the English 'invading' others. Why not learn about some of the most controversial figures in the BRITISH empire, many of whom were Scots? Read up on the opium wars and who was involved? Or about how the Union came about when the Scots bankrupted themselves with their COLONY in Panama! hahaha

Boring, pointless reviews
The anti-English comments are silly and bordering on real paranoia. There's no need to give an essay on what us English have done to the world or make the assumption that English people are rating down the film just because you can't make a good argument. What has this got to do with the film? Get a grip.
Thomas 3:34pm Thu 7 Oct

of course its anti-english
Fact is this is a great Epic film, not historically accurate, shows Wallace and later Bruce) as an almost super-heroes rather than master tacticians. But how can the English guys here expect it portrayed any other way? Its a story about a country you invaded fighting for freedom, its like saying Gandhi is anti-English. Hollywood doesn't stick to the truth, apart from the part about your tyrannical invading of the world, and the portrayed Robin Hood and Richard Lionheart as heroes, even if they're stories weren't true, still the English portrayed in a good light.

The rating is laughable.. 1.8/10 :) Give me a break! When we see that Katie Price and Katona TV shows are rated around 2.4/10 we must assume that the very high number of votes have been submitted by English people. This film, even if not accurate, must have hit the nail squarely on the head to justify this oddly low rating. Then again, as we say in France c'est le malade qui prend le bouillon..@ Grolleys and vomit - your nickname suits you- you'll be happy to know that english are as much disliked than americans. Step out of England (if you dare) and you will see for yourself.

Good film to watch, obviously the low rating is all the English votes. As far as the history goes the Scots did win at Stirling and lose at Falkirk. Great performances by Brian Cox and Patrick McGoohan

This film is racist, xenophobic, and about as true to real history as Lord of the Rings. And Americans are surprised when they find out everyone else dislikes them.

"8.4/10 from a site for film enthusiasts". No, 8.4 from a site populated by American morons. According to IMDB The Dark Knight is the 10th best film ever made. Yeah right, if you the only thing you are capable of reading is comics.
