Under Produced Film
7 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I only rated this film 5/10 as it seemed under-produced.There was always something missing in the storyline, the casting and even the filming.We had some authentic Scottish actors (but not Megs Jenkins who was Welsh) but Patricia Roc was badly miscast as the leading lady.I prefer to see her in the roles she was good at e.g. those she appeared as leading support for Margaret Lockwood The producers were shy about our sensitivities (probably as a result of war-time censorship) in that we did not see her demise in the film, nor the elder brother's demise by the male islanders on the Isle of Skye who came to exact revenge using the same curious method of execution they had earlier meted out to a turncoat who had shopped them to the excise men.The ending was unsatisfactory and rather abrupt.
