Triple bill of historical adventures.
'Braveheart' (1995), directed
by and starring Mel Gibson, tells the story of William Wallace
(Gibson), a 14th century Scot who leads the natives against the
English nobles staking their claim for lands and the Scottish
throne. Left an orphan by the brutality of the English -
exemplified by the callousness of King Edward Longshanks (Patrick
McGoohan) - Wallace grows up nursing a grievance against the
English but determined to live a life of peace. However, when his
childhood love, Murron (Catherine McCormack), is murdered by
English soldiers, the warlike side of Wallace is unleashed. Teaming
up with renegade noble Robert the Bruce (Angus Macfadyen), he
determines to free Scotland from English oppression.
Commander - The Far Side of the World' (2003), an adaptation of the
novel series by Patrick O'Brian, follows sea captain Jack Aubrey
(Russell Crowe) on a dangerous voyage. Having conquered much of
Europe already, Napoleon's forces have now set their sights on
taking Britain. Captain Aubrey and the crew of his ship, the HMS
Surprise - including Aubrey's friend, ship doctor Stephen Maturin
(Paul Bettany) - are sent to the Pacific to intercept any ships
from the French fleet. When Aubrey eyes a renegade French
super-frigate, the Surprise pursues, leading to an
adrenaline-charged chase through the distant reaches of the sea.
'Kingdom of Heaven' (2005) follows the epic adventures of a common
man who finds himself thrust into a decades-long war. When humble
blacksmith Balian (Orlando Bloom) discovers that he is in fact the
son of a knight, he is moved to travel to the Holy Land to fight in
the Crusades. A stranger in a strange land, he serves a doomed King
(Edward Norton), falls in love with an exotic and forbidden
Princess (Eva Green), and ultimately finds himself bearing the
responsibility of defending the holy city of Jerusalem.
