better yet, the scene where they bring out the long spears, follow this...
a 1-2 second scene of the spears "up"...then Cavalry/(wallace)"hold! calvary,
"then" they raise the spears. I've done this myself on some animation creations.
Non-the-less. Awards granted as deserved, we need more films like this.
It is true that some swords are drawn with no blood, but after taking to my western civ. teacher, he mentioned that the skin somewhat cleaned off the blade and blood from the wound doesn't start pouring out for a few seconds, but it does happen a little more often then not, even when heads are being chopped off.
