Boring, historically inaccurate, unrealistic, bland and uninteresting. I just love how those Scots trashed the English. Good portrayal by the actors and cinematography.

It's long, violent and quite the journey... but that's what an epic is. Mel Gibson is memorable as the lead, but should've made some necessary cuts.

This movie is flat out sick and disgusting but it had a compelling story and Mel Gibson gave a great performance. The movie was a little long and a bit boring at times though.

Great music, and Cinematography. The irony of this film is that Mel Gibson preaches the importance of freedom, yet could care less if Jewish and homosexuals are denied theirs.
