If you like your Hollywood to be as big, stirring and spectacular as possible, then there's no denying that Braveheart was one of the highpoints of '90s cinema. In adapting the relatively little-known tale of William Wallace's 13th-century rebellion, star/director Mel Gibson and writer Randall Wallace weren't afraid to play fast and loose with historical fact to produce a head-throbbing brew of tragic romance, smart character interplay, snarling villainy (Patrick McGoohan's fearsome Longshanks would have made even the Sheriff Of Nottingham wet his tights) and - most important of all some of the most thrilling battle scenes you'll ever see committed to film.
