ROB ROY

Wed­nes­day 8.35pm, Fox Clas­sics (M)

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Best On The Box -

No­table for Tim Roth’s Os­car-nom­i­nated per­for­mance as the loath­some Archibald Cun­ning­ham, he­do­nist of the High­lands.

Rob Roy gets his kilt in a twist, with Ir­ish­man Liam Nee­son in the ti­tle role of the Scot­tish folk hero (why do they do this?). Jes­sica Lange and Eric Stoltz also strug­gle with the brogue. Roth’s Archie has so few re­deem­ing fea­tures that you know he’s go­ing to get his in the end – and in which end and from whom? Does that end come quickly enough? Maybe not.
