Buon film epico,che sfrutta i meravigliosi paesaggi scozzesi per esaltare un trio di attori scelto e gestito alla grande.Roth è un grande cattivo, Neeson-Lange tengono ottimamente botta.Il punto fiacco è la sceneggiatura,ed una mezz'ora in più che poteva essere tranquillamente evitata.
Tim Roth plays the most villainous villain in this masterful story of honour and evil in the highlands of Scotland. Possibly one of the finest and longest sword fights ever in film. A triumph from Michael Caton Jones and from Liam Neeson and Jessica Lange as a strident woman of the mountains.
