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

An earlier trivia item states it's unclear as to whether it is one thousand English or Scottish pounds that is loaned. This is not true. When Killearn (Brian Cox) is talking to Cunningham (Tim Roth) regarding the fact that Montrose (Sir John Hurt) can see through them, Cunningham refers to the fact it doesn't matter, as land has been gained for the paltry sum of one thousand Scottish pounds.

Goofs

When Rob and his men are seen returning the cattle, one of the cows accidentally hooks its right horn under Liam Neeson's left arm for a second or two. He pulls away quickly and slaps the cow on the rump, but he is fortunate that he was not injured. This seems to have been an accidental incident, unplanned, which made it into the final cut of the film.


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.
