Years ago, when The Passion of the Christ was released (2004), there was a lot of talk about Mel Gibson, how he might have been atoning for his previous Hollywood films, how good or bad the movie was, Mel's love/hate relationship with Hollywood, etc.
And mostly, (at least as far as I recall) people brought up his early and most problematic works, like the Lethal Weapon series.
Maybe it's just been a long time, or maybe I didn't follow those discussions closely enough, but did anyone bring up the movie Braveheart in these discussions?
A) Gibson was a more influential actor by then, and played a larger part in the production of these later film(s). Braveheart for example was "directed and co-produced" by Gibson. He wasn't just an actor, like in the Lethal Weapon series.
B) Braveheart had some very problematic content, from a Catholic morality perspective.
1. There was no need to show the wedding night on screen.
2. William Wallace was not married to the Princess -- though her marriage to the sodomite prince was never consummated. So their little one-night romp was fornication, if not adultery. THIS FLING WITH THE PRINCESS WAS NOT HISTORICALLY PART OF WILLIAM WALLACE'S LIFE EITHER. Gibson put this crap in there.
C) Braveheart was released in 1995, just 9 years before "The Passion of the Christ" was released (2004). So it wasn't exactly ancient history at the time.
