Quotes

[first lines]
Title Card: At the dawn of the 1700's, famine, disease and the greed of great Noblemen were changing Scotland forever. With many emigrating to the Americas, the centuries-old Clan system was slowly being extinguished. This story symbolises the attempt of the individual to withstand these processes and, even in defeat, retain respect and honour.

Alternate Versions

Three seconds were cut from the UK cinema version to receive a 15 certificate, with a further 21 seconds removed from the video version. All the cuts were made to edit the rape scene. This version was released on DVD all over Europe as MGM mastered only one DVD for the entire region. In 2012, all previous cuts were waived by the BBFC for the 15 certificate Blu-ray release.

How about that! It came out right before "Braveheart"!
1 August 2006 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

I had never heard of Robert Roy MacGregor before "Rob Roy" came out, but the movie is definitely worth seeing. Playing the title character, Liam Neeson brings the same spirit to the role that he brought to Oskar Schindler, and Jessica Lange also does a really good job as his wife Mary. Archibald Cunningham (Tim Roth) is one person very likely to make your skin crawl.

All in all, this comes out as good as "Braveheart" (maybe even better). I laugh when I think of how Hollywood released two movies almost back-to-back taking a swipe at England. Very good. Also starring John Hurt, Eric Stoltz, Brian Cox and Jason Flemyng.
