Mel Gibson United States, 1995

Danny Bailey's rating of the film Braveheart

Never in my life, have I rated a film based on having seen only 10-15 minutes of the film itself. But Braveheart was just THAT BAD where seeing the rest of it wouldn't really matter. Mel Gibson is nothing but a David Lean wannabe who makes epics out to look like History Channel reenactments, and places violence where it doesn't fit. Why this won Best Picture I will never know.
