Top 30 Favorite Movie Characters #25

#25: William Wallace

I fully recognize that a lot of people now think Mel Gibson is an unbelievable jerk, but when I saw Braveheart back in 1995, I was blown away. Gibson's largely mythological portrayal of Scottish freedom fighter William Wallace totally captured my imagination. I'd never seen such an incredible portrayal of medieval combat on screen before. Plus, he gives arguably the most rousing pre-battle speech in cinema history.
