Mel Gibson United States, 1995

Phil Worfel's rating of the film Braveheart

I watched it way too many times in high school but damnit it's a really good epic. The balance of action, terror, violence, humor, romance and everything else is beautifully done. Gibson is a great director despite his personal life and this is a masterpiece of the genre. William Wallace was a much more convincing Christ-figure than Jesus in The Passion.
