It’s never too late to celebrate the anniversary of BRAVEHEART. The exhilarating, triumphant, and award-winning masterpiece BRAVEHEART will arrived in Limited Edition 4K Blu-ray Steelbook on May 5, 2020 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this film for review. The opinions of this blog are my own. I’m not a professional in any way but I am a movie fan.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2020, BRAVEHEART won five Academy Awards®, including Best Picture. The richly detailed saga of power, passion, and the fight for freedom stars Mel Gibson (who also took home the Oscar® for Best Director) as William Wallace, a bold Scotsman who rallies his countrymen to liberation from oppressive English rule. The 4K Steelbook includes access to a digital copy of the film and previously released commentary by Mel Gibson on both the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray presentations, along with more than two hours of previously released bonus content, including interactive timelines, a making-of documentary, multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes, and more.
BRAVEHEART received positive reviews in 1995 and, in my opinion, will continue to do so on its 25th anniversary and beyond. I absolutely love this epic historical film, in spite of its historical inaccuracies. In fact BRAVEHEART triggered an increase in interest for Scotland’s history; as well as, an increase in Scotland’s tourism. I’d say that a very positive outcome; wouldn’t you? Mel Gibson not only directed the movie, he acted as William Wallace as well. Gibson was reluctant to play the role of Wallace but I can’t imagine anyone else doing a better job. I will never forget his cry for FREEDOM.
BRAVEHEART is on my “Favourite Movies” list and I’ve watched it many times. Although the movie is long (approximately 3 hours), I think it’s well worth watching every moment of it.
The 25th Anniversary BRAVEHEART Limited Edition 4K Blu-ray Steelbook is beautifully presented and makes a wonderful gift and/or is perfect to add to your movie collection. If you haven’t seen BRAVEHEART then get on it!
