Without a doubt, this is my favourite scots film. Liam Neeson is superbly cast as the highlander Robert Roy McGregor and the big Irishman gives one of the best performances of his career. We also get a great performance from Jessica Lange who plays Mary, his wife. John Hurt is crafty as Montrose and Tim Roth is as evil as they come as Archibald Cunningham. Other good performances by Brian Cox and Eric Stoltz support this excellent film shot in the raw beauty of the Scottish highlands. I have been waiting for the Blu-ray release of this film for a long time, the DVD which was not anamorphic just didnt do it justice. Here we see it the way it was meant to be seen.
Unfortunately my first copy was slightly flawed but it was quickly replaced by Play.Com and there is nothing wrong with this one.
The clarity of the picture is excellent, colours are deep and natural and the sound is great. If there is anything wrong with the picture of this seventeen year old film, I didnt spot it. Great value for money and I highly recommend it.
