|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Absorbing tale of Rob Roy MacGregor, a lowborn man of high ideals in early 1700s Scotland who refuses to sacrifice his integrity to save his skin--or his family's. Beautiful scenery and rugged action (including several sword fights) complement an intelligent script. Moves at a deliberate pace, but spins its tale quite nicely, with solid performances from Neeson and Lange, and a delicious, scene-stealing turn by Roth as a smarmy badguy. Never quite rousing but always entertaining. J-D-C Scope.
