Braveheart (Gibson, 1995)

A Scottish commoner challenges the English army and remains unbeaten where there not traitors.

The story is captivating enough to keep you interested, although the love story is really campy and Gibson just doesn't work as a romantic lead in my opinion - not visually, but his love scenes are just not convincing enough for me. Maybe the whole relationship should have started more accidental. Marceau is great and works extremely well - although extremely beautiful she manages to balance her performance.

Fantastic battle scenes definitively worth watching, I think the editing was quite memorable too. At one or two places the soundtrack steps way to far into the limelight, maybe because they tried to establish the theme on its own right. Great cinematography and very impressive colours.
