#Movie #Review: Plunkett & Macleane (1999)

plunkett-and-macleane-1999

Jonny Lee Miller is Captain James Macleane and Robert Carlyle is highwayman Will Plunkett. The first a broke louche, the second a, sick-of-class, commoner gathering together a fortune so that he can start anew in the America.  They team up to fleece the rich.  Entertaining action, but a bit Blackadder with fewer laughs. This film also has the worst tag-line in movie history: ‘they rob the rich… and that’s it.’  However Liv Tyler, with a Georgian era fake beauty-spot, alone makes this a movie worth watching. And also because highwaymen are cool.
