What a load of rubbish! Mel had a brilliant lowland Lanarkshire Scottish accent.

Millions of Scots were blown away by his portrayal of William Wallace and if his accent had been that terrible the Scots would have said so when the film was released back in 1995.

Mate, I love the movie don't get me wrong. Even though it is far from being historically accurate. But one thing is certain, Mel's accent is far from sounding half scottish! You should go there more often.
At least Mel had made an effort, not like Lambert in the ridiculous highlander series. After all, it is a shame that Hollywood decided to not go for native scottish actors: Sean Connery, Robert Carlyle... would have been great!

Mel was perfect in the role. Sean Connery or Robert Carlyle would have been crap.
