Synopsis
The 18th century Scottish legend of Robert Roy MacGregor comes to life in this stylish adaptation of the swashbuckling novel by Sir Walter Scott. Liam Neeson stars as the title character, a cattle drover and proud head of a Highlands clan who takes a one thousand pound loan from the royal Marquis of Montrose (John Hurt) in order to make a profit on some livestock that will keep his struggling people alive through the coming winter. One of the Marquis' henchmen, wily expert swordsman Archibald Cunningham (Tim Roth) learns of the loan from the nobleman's factor, Killearn (Brian Cox), and steals the money by murdering Rob Roy's best friend MacDonald (Eric Stoltz). Unable to repay the loan and unwilling to give up his land, Rob Roy becomes a fugitive, hunted by none other than Cunningham, who rapes Rob Roy's wife Mary (Jessica Lange). Scotch-British politics come to a boil over the Rob Roy affair, leading to an officially sanctioned showdown between the stoic farmer and Cunningham. ~ Karl Williams, All Movie Guide

Not bad.... by emdoub September 29, 2009 - 9:57 PM PDT

Yet another story of Scottish serfs against British noblemen. It's not Braveheart, but it's not bad. Some typical bits, some remarkably good acting, and it all adds up to a good evening of movie watching. You could do worse, quite easily.

A list of DVDs that I bought and proudly store on the top shelf of my DVD rack. Note that I don't put poorly packaged DVDs on this shelf, so Warner movies get excluded. Also movies with bad sequels that I still buy tend to get demoted with them.
