Trivia

Tim Roth thought he was going to be fired for making Archibald Cunningham too eccentric. He asked his agent to start looking for more work for him. Despite thinking this, Director Michael Caton-Jones told him to be more campy and eccentric. Roth would later receive an Oscar nomination for his performance. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the film, which takes place in 1713, James Graham is referred to and addressed as the [4th] Marquess of Montrose. In reality, James Graham was elevated to become the [1st] Duke of Montrose in 1707. It follows that the scene where the Duke of Argyll "pulls rank" on him is incorrect, as the two would have been of equal standing at this point in time. See more »

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.

Entertaining and Underrated Film
7 February 2003 | by trickydickySee all my reviews

Its not Braveheart( thankfully),but it is fine entertainment with engaging characters and good acting all around. I enjoyed this film when it was released and upon viewing it again last week,find it has held up well over time. Not a classic film,but a very fine and watchable movie to enjoy as great entertainment.
