William Wallace probably did ride a horse, and also probably owned a sword of some description.

Also, the lady what played the French queen, while several years too old for the part historically, was pretty nice, and so we'll let them off that complete falsehood.
Slowly realizing just how far is still to go.

It ends (eventually)

Also you can eat popcorn when watching it.

Also I love being the pantomime baddy. S'more fun.

Ah and I think he dies at the end although not entirely sure as my attention wandered an hour or so before that point.

Bit hard to eat popcorn when you're laughing so much!

It's interesting that there are only 7 responses to this thread, and 84 to the one asking 'What's wrong with the film Braveheart?'.

But not surprising... :roll:

I met some of the Clown Ranald once who tried to tell me how right Braveheart was and how everyone like me had it wrong. They got really irate when I asked for sources. :roll:

That's the only right thing, something that actually unites all Scotsmen? :wink:

Edward 1st was a psychopath, (just ask Simon de Montfort)

Prince Edward of Canarvon was a raging whoopsie, the old king pulling his hair out in clumps and dragging him by the beard to a window and throwing him out, ( the prince not his lover) to make a man of him.
He landed in the moat....

The English were murderin b*****ds. (ask Master William Peebles, Abbot of Melrose, crucified to his own Abbey door. Or the good citizens of Berwick about the events of Good Friday 1296).

Marrion Broadfoot was Wallace's wife, and was murdered in Lanark for which he took a bloody revenge.

The broad (very broad) story.

Which is what makes it so annoying, it would have been simpler to make it more accurate, rather the fairy tail they made of it.
