Braveheart (1995)

braveheart9502By Scott Goldfine

Mel Gibson stars, directs and produces this epic saga about William Wallace ― a commoner who sparked the 14th-century uprising that gave Scotland its freedom from tyrannical England. Gibson does well on both sides of the camera as his film features plenty of brutal battles and displays lots of beautiful scenery.

However, it fails to conjure enough interest to support its three-hour running time.
