Incredibly Engaging Version of the Stevenson Classic
22 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this because it gave me insights into issues between the Scottish Highlanders and the Lowlanders and the relationship with the king. While there are some dull moments at times, the issues facing the young Davie Balfour are portrayed very well. The inexperienced young man falls into no man's land when he puts his trust in the authorities and in the crown and is treated horribly. The rest of the cast does nicely including the actor portraying Alan Breck. He is such a loose cannon and Davie must constantly be on his guard, not knowing who his friends really are. The scenes of the Scottish Highlands are breathtaking and the threat of the nasty British is always in the air. People are so proud of their heritage and are still fighting for autonomy to this day (the recent vote for independence which failed). This is worth dying for in the eyes of the rebels and is portrayed nicely in this film. I really felt a kinship with young Davy and felt his bull headedness and naïveté were well portrayed.
