The Atmos soundtrack is incredible. Not only are the battle scenes immersive, but there are also smaller atmospheric items like the sound of thunder overhead during a storm along with the rain that just adds so much to the experience. The music and sound stage is robust and enveloping.
I'm simply blown away with this presentation of Braveheart, and I'm thrilled to have the movie in my collection. This is a reference quality disk that will not leave you disappointed.
Mel Gibson's Best Picture Oscar winner looks absolutely fantastic in this 4K UHD Blu-ray presentation. The disc includes both HDR10 and Dolby Vision encoding, so whichever your system can reproduce, you're completely covered in that regard.
This 4K version really delivers a notable upgrade in picture and sound quality from the previous 1080p Blu-ray version.
Since this movie was shot on film (vs. digitally) there is some film grain visible, but it is usually minor and not a distraction from the otherwise reference quality picture. Finer detail, richer color and the wise application of HDR really step up the image quality, making this presentation a visual treat for the eyes.
The new sound mix is also a welcome and very impressive treat for the ears--more enveloping, projecting a greater sense of spaciousness and detail than the previous version released on conventional Blu-ray.
In all honesty, I've never seen this fine film look better and have never heard it sound better than it does on this spectacular new 4K UHD Blu-ray.
If you love this movie, and have a 4K Blu-ray player and a 4K TV with high dynamic range, this is a disc which I highly recommend without any reservations.
Braveheart is, quite frankly, among the very best examples of movies originally shot on 35mm film that have ever been offered to us in the 4K UHD Blu-ray format.
Braveheart starts off right, with an R-rating for “brutal medieval violence.” It has two themes: stabbing people and liberty, which puts it squarely in my wheelhouse. It also holds a special place it my heart because it was maybe the last movie I saw in the theater with my dad. The initial theater run was limited and traveling 30 minutes and getting into an R-rated movie was still a bit of a tall order.
Braveheart is a great movie—well-acted, paced, told, everything—even if it does make only the vaguest nods toward the actual history and even if it does suffer from a bit of this-time-its-personal-itis (more on that in a bit).
The complex character of Robert the Bruce, and his portrayal by Angus MacFayden, is an underappreciated highlight of Braveheart, which is fitting given today’s theme. (MacFayden, by the way, is reprising his most famous role in another Robert the Bruce movie, with this one nire directly positioned as a Braveheart sequel.)
The most interesting contrast between Braveheart and Outlaw/King is in how they handle romance. In Braveheart, Wallace initially refuses to fight and only changes his mind after his wife is killed. (Which undercuts him as a patriot hero, even if it may have basis in fact.) That romance is what wins him the help of Isabella of France and then allows Wallace to literally cuck Edward II. In Outlaw/King, Bruce initially sends his new wife away so he can deliberate with his brothers over how to respond to Wallace’s execution. But Elizabeth de Burgh, daughter of an important ally of Edward I, chooses him. And she pays for it. When she is taken, Bruce doesn’t run off. He wants to, but his duty (and, frankly, his ambition) won’t allow it. In Braveheart, the romance is just a plot device. In Outlaw/King, the romance and the plot each enhance the other.

Once the disc began we had no problems at all and can report that Braveheart has a stunning 4k picture which shows a definite upkick in detail from the standard blu ray. There is a very fine filmic grain that is barely noticeable and the colours (although very blue in hue) are deep and rich with green and reds really popping.
The Dolby Atmos track is ok.... not as good as that on Blade Runner (which is unbelievable) or the Harry Potter DTSX but is certainly wide and engulfing....
Well worth the trade up from standard blu ray.
I can now see this is not a historically accurate documentary on William Wallace, but a fictional adaptation of his life. As long as the viewer realises this, they should enjoy it. Patrick McGoohan gives a great performance as King Edward I.
Blu-Ray picture quality is stunning.
Still one of my favourite films of all time.
