London Lite Wednesday, 21 October 2009 21 TELEVISION Filmchoice FILM RATINGS excellent very good good average poor KEY (R)repeat (S)subtitles on text service Braveheart Film4, 9pm (1995) MEL GIBSON, above, stars in the rousing story of William Wallace -- the Scottish hero who led an uprising against brutal English king Edward Longshanks. There are a few factual errors in this film, such as the fact that Wallace never met French princess Isabelle, nor was he an American with Hollywood-perfect teeth. But dont let that ruin your enjoyment. The School Of Rock E4, 9pm (2003) DEWEy FINN is an unemployed and slightly delusional musician who still believes that one good break will send him into the heady world of rock stardom. Masquerading as a supply teacher to make some money, he discovers that his young pupils have the potential -- under his sage tutelage -- to become an awesome band. Stars Jack Black, above. The Matrix Revolutions ITV2, 10pm (2003) NEO and Trinity make a desperate journey into the heart of the enemy stronghold seeking a way to save humanity, while Agent Smith sets about remaking the Matrix in his own image. The original film was a hard act to follow, and this one falls deeply into the disappointing sequel category. Stars Carrie-Anne Moss and Keanu Reeves, above. Frantic ITV3, 11pm (1988) AMERICAN doctor Richard Walker and his wife Sondra are in France for a medical conference and, while he is taking a shower, she disappears. Dr Walker has to fight a foreign city and language to find her. Along the way, he teams up with a young girl who has her own agenda -- and perhaps more knowledge of Sondras whereabouts. Stars a very earnest Harrison Ford, above. STEPHEN MARR BBC2 ITV1 Channel 4 Five 10.30 This Morning (S).
