I saw this movie around eight years back. I was having tyfoid at that time and was not able to prepare for my engineering entrance exams. In such a miserable condition, I lost all hope. But, one day by chance I saw this movie on TV. There were only handful of farmers of Scotland with no proper arms, against the full army of England. Inspite of all the odds Scots won under the leadership of William Wallace. I was so much inspired that I thought, if handful of farmers can beat the army of 50,000, then I can get the admission in one of the best colleges. And I simply got up and started studying back with increased enthusiasm and efficiency.
The best line I picked from the movie is “Your heart is born free!! Have the courage to follow it!!” . This movie is still the inspiration for me.
The movie is action packed, taking us back to 13th century. The battle of Stirling gives the first platform to William Wallace to become leader of Scotish rebellion against Britishers. While watching this scene, one can notice the oratory skills, convincing power, wit, shrewdness, planning and fighting skills of Wallace. The battle of Falkirk marks the downfall of Wallace and his following. But, along with downfall his fame spreads like fire and he becomes legend for centuries to come.
I will recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in history, action and dialogue delivery.
