The story of William Wallace was one that could

bring a tear to even the most cold-hearted man and

women on earth. His story not only showed the struggle

of how Scotland got it’s freedom but also about how

he struggled in his personal life with the many foolish

and unnecessary rules that the king put on his people,

which soon led to the death of his wife. William

Wallace’s life started just like any other boy that

lived in Scotland. But it would soon change. The

people of Scotland were under the rule of the king

of England who happened to be King Edward. The king

had told the people that he would give them their

freedom, and so they went to pursue it. It turned

out to be a trick. All of the men who had gone to

meet the king for their freedom were hung. Children

and parents both. The people wanted revenge on the

king and so many of the men from Scotland went to

battle. One in which was William’s father. They

gained nothing from the fight, and now William no

longer had a father.William now went to live with

his uncle Argile. There he lived for a long term

of his life. He was educated and learned to speak

Latin with his uncle who he also took him on a

pilgrimage to Rome. He returned home to Scotland

while in his late twenties to raise crops and a family.

He soon was married to a girl he knew as a kid in

secret so that none of the guards could enforce the

law of Primal Nuctar, which is to bless the marriage

by sleeping with the bride. He tried to dodge the

law but failed. He fought off the soldiers of the

king for what he knew was right. But his wife was

captured and killed for assault on a king’s guard.

This is what made William know for sure that he

would fight for his countries freedom so no one

else would ever have to suffer again do to the

laws of King Edward. From this point on William

Wallace never gave up hope of seeking his freedom.

William and his fellow Scots had three wars and

countless battles over myriad years until they

finally won their freedom in the battle of

Banakburn in 1314. Shortly after William Wallace

was captured and beheaded.

To me this movie was the base of how all

independence movies should be based. This

movie was beautifully written, directed and

choreographed. It told it’s story in a way

that no one could have done better. This movie

had all the essentials it needed to be the

excellent movie it was. It not only got to the

point quickly, But it surrounded it with more

than one story which also was told well to fit

the plot of how and why Scotland won it’s freedom.

The characters were a good aspect of this movie

as well. The characters seemed to be linked like

they had known each other for a long period of

time. The friendships that they held with one

another seemed so real because of the cast of

characters and their ability to work so well

with one another. Another aspect I enjoyed was

the comedy throughout the movie. All though

there wasn’t a lot of it there was enough to

keep myself and others entertained.

During this movie I developed favoritism

to one of the characters. With his wild and

hilarious ways some may think he is crazy, but

the way I see it he was one of the smartest

ones throughout the movie. This character to me

lit the movie up, and without him this movie

would never be the same. This character was

named Steven and was the most wanted man on

Ireland. Although he was the comic to me I also

enjoyed the character played by William’s

best friend. His strength and willingness to

stand up for what he believed in made me believe

that Scotland would get their freedom with or

without Wallace.

The only bad thing I can say about this

movie was that it was very long. The length

of the movie could have been shorter if they

wouldn’t have delayed certain parts of the movie.

But I guess they had to make it the way it was

so you could get the feeling that every part

of the movie was absolutely true. Looking at it

now there was really no bad part or parts in

this movie. It’s perfectly perfect. No mistakes,

it’s simply a masterpiece.
