Braveheart (R)

Starring: Mel Gibson

Contents: Graphic violence, profanity, female nudity, males exposing themselves

Rating: 7

Summary: Mel Gibson is Scottish clansman William Wallace who leads his people into war against England when his wife is executed by English nobles.

Not Bad. Mel does a good job in this film. My only real beef is that it is too long: 20 minutes could have been cut from the slow-motion (and excessively violent) battles scenes, and it would have been the same film. Some errors in historical accuracy (Mel's character never had an affair with Princess Isabella). Worth seeing.
