  • Braveheart

    Hi guys,

    I just read this article on the film Braveheart.

    In the video, Mel Gibson talks about the historical inaccuracies in the film and its affect on Scotland.

    Quite interesting viewing and reading.

    Hollywood often takes historical liberties with history because real history doesn't sell well at the box office.

      And it's really strange, because real stories are usually better that ones created by screen writters (e.g. Kingdom of Heaven).

        "There is very little history about the man. There is some, but you have to make up the bits in between because there wasn’t somebody following him around writing. He did exist and he did have an impact."

        I doubt there are many historical moments that have 'easy' movies in them for much the same reason.

        I liked the film and I am of Scottish decent and I don't really much mind that it failed the test of the accuracy police.

        Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
        I didn't for a long time either.
