Rob Roy was, um, interesting. As Sekhmet pointed out, much more historically accurate than its oft-compared contemporary, Braveheart. I'm not sure how much weight I give that argument in the long run, though. I definitely could have improved the pacing on Rob Roy, however; you could have set another movie in the wasted space in this one. Tim Roth was rather impressive, though, I found myself wanting to know more about his character. Also, I liked the fact that evil was relatively competent, as this isn't often the case in movies. And man, it pointed out how Liam Neeson is freeky tall.
