If you are after a highland fling then this could be for you...

Released the same year as Mel Gibson’s Braveheart, Michael Caton-Jones’ stirring salute to “The Highland Rogue” now seems doomed to languish in its Oscar-nabbing shadow.

Which is a shame given how fine Liam Neeson looks in a kilt and how much lip-smacking malevolence Tim Roth lends to his foppish, periwigged nemesis.

OK, so neither Jessica Lange nor Eric Stoltz know a Scottish accent from a deep-fried Mars Bar, but if it’s muscular heroics and rugged machismo you’re wanting, you could derring-do a lot worse.
