An invigorating medieval-style epic!

"I love the bones of you, Robert McGregor, but you take too much to heart that canna' be helped."

At its heart, Rob Roy is Braveheart donning a new kilt distinctively suited for the thinking audience. Ultimately the film is an invigorating period adventure criminally buried and forgotten due to its meagre box office reception. In general, critics and audiences collectively bequeathe... read more

I hate Braveheart with an insane passion, loathe the movie and everything it stands for. Part of that is because the nationalism on show in the film always creeped me out a bit and part of it is because it managed to eclipse this absolute gem of a film.

It's a move that is consistently in my top 50, an all time favourite and part of that is because there's a sense of verisimilitude to... read more

It is not uncommon that, within a rather short-time periode, the studios would release two similar movies (see last year 'The Legend of Hercules' and 'Hercules'). Back in 1995, Mel Gibson had a massive critical and box-office success with 'Braveheart' but, a couple of months before, Liam Neeson already showed up in his own periode epic about a real-life Scottish hero.

“It is not uncommon that, within a rather short-time periode, the studios would release two similar movies (see last year 'The Legend of Hercules' and 'Hercules').

Eventually, even though this flick managed to get some decent reviews (For example, Roger Ebert really loved it), it always remained overshadowed by Gibson's classic. First of all, I had to admit that I never been a fan of 'Braveheart', I think it is an entertaining epic but not much more than that but I still think it was more impressive than this flick. I mean, don't get me wrong, it is also a rather well made flick but ev” read more

50 Biggest Lies In Biopic History (50 movies items)

" The Untruth: Liam Neeson is Rob Roy, Scotland’s Robin Hood. His nemesis is Tim Roth’s Archibald Cunningham and all the other posh English fops. The baddies are very bad indeed and enjoy talking like Lord Humphrey MacMoney-Bags while laughing at orphans on fire. The Truth: Surprisingly Rob Roy was real. Archibald Cunningham was not. If you've seen the film, that's a pretty significant innacuracy. If you haven't, it's probably best you don't bother. "

"Re-watched: 12.5. I really like this movie and especially the cast. Liam Neeson, John Hurt and Jessica Lange are great as usual, but a clean bright spot is Tim Roth. I think this might be his career the best performance and Oscar-nomination is not of course come to nothing, what annoys me still that Kevin Spacey went to win it.. Don't misunderstand. I love Kevin Spacey, and he deserved the Oscar for purely. But, I believe that the victory would have changed Timmy's career. He would be much more"

It's a move that is consistently in my top 50, an all time favourite and part of that is because there's a sense of verisimilitude to it. It's not a particulalry accurate film, it's depiction of Scottish/English relations at the time is a little off, but it feels real and lived in. It feels grimy and it feels real, in a way that Braveheart never did to me. In a lot of ways the film reminds me more of Last of the Mohicans than Braveheart, using fairly grounded methods to tell a fairly lyrical story.
