28 December 2000 | Ben-139
Enjoyable period adventure, good cast.
This is an enjoyable adaptation of the period novel set in late 17th century England. It is well cast with excellent performances from many of the lead actors. Martin Clunes as Captain Sickles steals many of the scenes and Amelia Warner makes a beautiful Lorna.

The action scenes are well done and fast paced, and the characterisations are very good.

As with many period pieces, what does let it down a little is the costuming, which owes more to Hollywood's idea of historical clothing than what was actually worn (although the soldiers uniforms are very good) and the fact that the Doone's clothing and hairstyles seem to owe more to Braveheart than history!!

Despite the clothing inaccuracies, over-all it is a very entertaining adaptation, well worth watching.

From American Psycho to Batman Begins to Vice, Christian Bale is a bonafide A-list star. But he missed out on plenty of huge roles along the way. So what were they?

Who else nearly landed Christian?
