Mel Gibson’s “historical” epic has a few good moments, some good costumes, impressive battle scenes, and a 97 hour running time that takes us from the beginnings of the Scottish resistance to British rule to the opening “carrier deck” sequence of Tora! Tora! Tora!.
A good example of later work casting a pall on earlier work, Gibson’s remake in the form of The Patriot has a less than salutary effect on reviewings of Braveheart.
