"An explosive action movie...one of the most spectacular entertainments in years."
~ Caryn James (New York Times)

"There's no denying `Braveheart' is an eyeful. The battle scenes are staged with enough dramatic sweep to make De Mille envious. They have a gritty bite that helps keep `Braveheart' big and boldly handsome."
~ Peter Stack (San Francisco Chronicle)

"Many movies deal with battlefield heroics. Few seriously attempt to define heroism."
~ John Hartl (Seattle Times)

I really love this movie. Full of action and has a camaraderie with his co- soldiers. They helped each other in order to survive. But i he end it has a sad ending Private Ryan die.
