Braveheart Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

In the late 13th century, William Wallace returns to Scotland after living away from his homeland for many years. The king of Scotland has died without an heir and the king of England, a ruthless pagan known as Edward the Longshanks, has seized the throne. Wallace becomes the leader of a ramshackle yet courageous army determined to vanquish the greater English forces. At the historic battle of Stirling, Wallace leads his army to a stunning victory against the English. Knighted by the grateful Scottish nobles, Sir William Wallace extends the conflict south of the border and storms the city of York. King Edward I is astonished by the unexpected turn of events. Unable to rely on his ineffectual son Prince Edward, Longshanks sends his daughter-in-law Princess Isabelle to discuss a truce with Wallace...

Braveheart Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Braveheart arrives on Blu-ray with a wonderful 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer. First, the two minor complaints. Braveheart's transfer features some dirt and white speckles that remain throughout, but never appear to such a degree so as to become a distraction. Second, Braveheart occasionally looks a bit soft and colors sometimes appear a tad bit bland, but far more often than not it takes on a superb film-like appearance that captures the essence of what Blu-ray is all about. As noted, Braveheart looks wonderful on the whole, and while it might not be the sharpest, most vibrant, eye-popping transfer out there, it looks wonderfully cinematic, seemingly straight out of the theater and often brilliant in its ability to convey the look of film for home viewing. The disc sports a subtle layer of grain that's visible throughout but never dominates the frame. Detail appears as appreciably high throughout; frayed garments look wonderful, and several loose threads stand out nicely. Likewise, long, unkempt hair blows in the wind with solid texture and it seems as if each strand is not only visible but able to be differentiated one from another. Chain mail armor also impresses; every link and seam appears exquisitely rendered, and the English soldiers' garb looks appropriately filthy and worn. Background details in the lush Scottish landscape -- tall green grass and clumps of trees -- appear as well-defined and nicely represented. Though the film features a fairly limited color palette, with many gray skies and plain-colored clothes, brighter hues stand out nicely but don't appear overblown or unnatural even up against the barrage of listless hues. The green fields sparkle, the red and orange English soldiers' uniforms stand out nicely, and Wallace's blue warpaint jumps straight off the screen. Black levels are consistently good, as are flesh tones. Braveheart makes for a handsome transfer, a real treasure that might not be the sharpest or most colorful Blu-ray out there, but for what it is and what it needs to be, it looks marvelous.

Braveheart Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

This Blu-ray release of Braveheart frees the film from the captivity of compressed audio and allows the soundtrack to shine with a stupendous Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Perhaps the track's most defining attribute comes not from the action scenes but rather in the film's quieter moments. There's nary a moment in the film that audiences are not drawn into to story thanks to a fantastic sense of atmosphere. Subtle breezes blow throughout the soundstage, birds chirp ever so slightly in every corner of the listening area, thunder rolls in the distance, and horses gallop to and fro. Each of these -- and plenty more -- bring the track alive throughout. Of course, the track positively booms during the action sequences. As armies assemble, horses fall in line, and restless infantrymen clank about as they prepare to die on the fields of Scotland, audiences become immersed in a full-fledged attack of sonic goodness. The soundstage rumbles as horses charge the Scottish line, and the clanking of metal-on-metal, the shouts of the victors, and the cries of the wounded all play together but at the same time distinctly for a unique and enthralling listening experience. James Horner's (Glory) glorious score comes alive as never before, with the highs of the bagpipes and the foreboding lows setting the tone for the film. Rounded out by superb dialogue reproduction, Braveheart sounds just as good as it looks on Blu-ray.
