Review this movie
Sep 17, 2013One of the most underrated movies of the 1990s. I'm not always one for historical drama, but this is perhaps Liam Neeson's finest performance. The movie received limited attention because it followed the thematically similar and already-too-long Braveheart. That's a shame, because Rob Roy is superior to Gibson's bloated flick in virtually every respect: writing, acting, direction, and overall artistic value. It is a fine movie in the high Romantic tradition, with heart and grit, a story of honor, a tale of how genuine heroes act under trying circumstances. Sensitive audiences might want to be wary of the violence, and a rape scene. The Blu-Ray version contains significantly better graphics than the previous DVD version.… Expand
Sep 17, 2013"Rob Roy" is one of my all time favorite movies. It's about a man of integrity, strength and depth in a corrupt and shallow world. The great Liam Neeson carries the movie effortlessly on his broad shoulders. Beautiful Scottish backgrounds. A wife any man would die for. Deliciously evil and dangerous villains. Spectacular fight scenes and a great love story. What more could anyone want.
