One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. “Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box”.

1995 was a big year for grand Scottish historical dramas, what with this, and Braveheart. I like Liam Neeson. The man is a solid actor, and just, well... likeable. He was well suited for the honorable, humble protagonist. (I didn't realize how tall he was -- there's one scene in an elegant garden where he towers over Tim Roth, John Hurt, and Brian Cox.) The whole cast is excellent. Roth was perfectly despicable; Jessica Lange drums up something deep after a nasty sequence with him. The film implements one of the most nauseating hiding places (for Neeson) that I've ever witnessed, and the final sword fight was very well orchestrated. I don't know, I just watched this after watching Mel Gibson's William Wallace epic again for the umpteenth time, and this movie is very good... but Braveheart it ain't. Not even close.

Tim Roth makes a superb villian, but the divide between good guys and bad guys is way too black and white, and lovely Jessica Lange suffers way too much for her husband's so-called honour. But the reason I rate this film so highly is that the finale includes one of the best sword fights in cinematic history between Liam Neeson & Tim Roth.

Rob Roy's son: "Father... will MacGregors ever be kings, again?" Robert Roy MacGregor: "All men with honor, are kings. But not all kings have honor." Son: "What is honor?" Robert Roy MacGregor: "Honor is... what no man can give ya... and none can take away. Honor is a man's gift to himself." Son: "Do women have it?" Robert Roy MacGregor: "Women have the heart of honor. And we cherish and protect it in them. You must never mistreat a woman or malign a man. Or stand by and see another do so." Son: "How d'ya know if ya have it?" Robert Roy MacGregor (laughs): "Never worry on the getting of it. It grows in ya, and speaks to ya. ...All ya need do is listen."

Archibald Cunningham: "Think of yourself a scabbard, Mistress MacGregor, and I the sword. And a fine fit you were, too." Mary MacGregor: "I will think on you dead... until my husband makes you so. And then I will think on you no more."
