  • Details
Enraged at the slaughter of Murron (Catherine McCormack) -- his new bride and childhood love -- legendary Scottish warrior William Wallace (Mel Gibson, who also directed the film) slays a platoon of the local English lord's soldiers. This leads the village to revolt and, eventually, the entire country to rise up against English rule. With vivid battle scenes and a heaping portion of legend, Gibson's epic won five Oscars, including Best Picture.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie has high levels of blood and gore (animal and human), vulgarity, and sexual elements. This is NOT a movie for kids. There is much ado about rape, plus sex scenes between Wallace and his doomed wife and with a consenting princess. There's some nudity. Expect torture, hackings, stabbings, throat-slitting, and arrows and spears dealing horrible death and injuries. William Wallace is brave, noble, but vengeful and absolutely uncompromising.

Sexual Content

Much ado about rape, plus sex scenes between Wallace and his doomed wife and with a consenting princess. Some nudity.


Torture, hackings, stabbings, throat-slitting, arrows and spears deal horrible death and injuries, though quick editing rarely lingers on the gore.


Not much, and mostly in archaic language.

Social Behavior

William Wallace is brave, noble, but vengeful and absolutely uncompromising (although with enemies like these, who could blame him?). His strongest allies, like a displaced English-hating Irishman, are equally fanatical; others who turn out to be treacherous and unreliable live to tell the tale (unless William gets to them first).


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking, or liquor used as a battlefield anesthetic.
