Rob Roy has its diversions, but they are unfortunately outweighed by some heavy baggage that contains not enough of substance.
October 29, 2008
Where Braveheart was a guts-and-glory battlefield hymn to fortitude, Rob Roy is a more personal, more intelligent, and more wrenching exploration of honor, honesty, and loyalty.

Rob Roy benefits from a smart script and fine performances by art house regulars Tim Roth and Eric Stoltz, as well as Hollywood stars Liam Neeson and Jessica Lange.

Neeson makes a less dashing action hero than did Day-Lewis, but he brings enough gravitas to his role to endow his love for his wife Mary (Lange) and his conflict with Cunningham with real emotional punch.
July 4, 2005
This historical epic is slightly anachronistic, but the acting of Liam Neeson in the lead and especially Tim Roth as the villain is excellent.

In their devotion, fiery love scenes, and mutual respect, Neeson and Lange have made marriage more appealing and admirable than any movie has in years.

A fine translation of the Scottish legend, infinitely superior to the ham-handed Braveheart.
| Original Score: 4/5
August 30, 2002
Fine and fetching swashbuckling drama with equal doses of heroism and love.
June 18, 2002
With such a cast and the setting of the Highlands, plus a story with a gold mine of dramatic potential, it is a puzzle why Rob Roy is so uninvolving.

You always know where it's going even as it meanders for two and a half hours getting there.
April 2, 2001
You know you're in whole mess of trouble when the villains turn out to be more interesting than the hero.

As embodied by Liam Neeson, Rob Roy is a tremendous protagonist -- a naive man whose belief in honor and whose love for a woman, family, and clan make him a figure to cheer for.

Strange. I thought I had seen enough sword fights in movies to last a lifetime, but I was wrong.

If you're in a forgiving, campy frame of mind (which I must have been the night I saw this), there's cheap pleasure to be gained from the experience.
