Is there anything Liam Neeson can't do?
This is one of my favorite movies of all time -- it far outshines Braveheart which made more money and got more attention. Liam Neeson is just exudes manliness in this movie, and if I was Jessica Lange I'd have been liftin' me skirts all the time too. Her portrayal of Mary McGregor is just beautiful -- turns out Mary is just as strong as the man she married. Tim Roth is a little exaggerated as the evil Archie Cunningham but still manages to be believable. I think the two most underrated actors in this film were Eric Stoltz as McDonald and Brian Macardie as Rob Roy's younger brother. The scene in the woods where Cunningham is pursuing MacDonald is simply agonizing to watch, and brilliantly filmed. MacArdie's compassion for Mary McGregor when he learns her secret is so moving, you just want to cuddle the guy and pat him on the head. The final swordfight between Rob and Archibald is amazing, one of the best movie fights I've ever seen -- yes, it's bloody, but death tends to be. Rent this! If you are a Brian Macardie fan, check out Kidnapped.

Trivia

Montrose's line bemoaning the Queen's lack of an heir is a reference to her seventeen pregnancies, which resulted in six miscarriages, six stillbirths, two children who lived only a few minutes after birth, a daughter who didn't see her first birthday, another who didn't see her second, and a son, William, Duke of Gloucester, who died a few days after turning eleven, two years before Anne's ascension to the throne.

Goofs

In the final scene where Rob returns home, the sky is cloudy and it looks like it will rain. When the long shot showing the family and their home against the Highlands is shown and the credits begin to roll, the sky is sunny with white clouds, yet all of this is supposed to happened within five or ten minutes at the most. The sky would not have had time to clear up.


Alternate Versions

Three seconds were cut from the UK cinema version to receive a 15 certificate, with a further 21 seconds removed from the video version. All the cuts were made to edit the rape scene. This version was released on DVD all over Europe as MGM mastered only one DVD for the entire region. In 2012, all previous cuts were waived by the BBFC for the 15 certificate Blu-ray release.
