Rob Roy Review

Image for Rob Roy

Ron Roy borrows some money from a local nobleman with the aim of improving his small town. When the money is stolen he is forced to live as an outlaw to protect his family.


The thinking person's Braveheart. Liam Neeson is the kilted 18th-century outlaw, Jessica Lange his loyal ginger missus, and Tim Roth the contemptible English bastard in a wig, in an outdoors tale of swordsmanship and nationalism. Completely overshadowed on its release by the B-film, but still worth a look.

Braveheart in a new kilt. Not exactly original, then, but worth a look.
