Format: DVD
Don't take this film seriously or you will be disappointed. I thoroughtly enjoyed it. This film is pure entertainment and has a surprising but excellent soundtrack that really polishes the film off. The extras on the DVD are okay with the trailer and some good cast interviews. The behind the scene filming is just that, a film about the filming but without any commentary and is not worth watching. However you can change the filming angle in some scene, although you will have to play and work out how to do it on your DVD.

Format: VHS Tape
The actors in this film are wonderfully well chosen.Jonny Lee Miller is a sex-god, that's my first reason! Robert Carlyle is a first-class actor and together, they make an unlikely but compelling pair. Alan Cumming is superb as always in his role as Rochester - very sexually charged! The costumes are stunning, and I adored the music and have even bought the CD. This is worth it alone for the music to my favourite scene in the film, the ball. This is utterly engaging and the music throbs in a very suggestive way! Brilliant stuff... I liked the script which was not overly olde worlde and very funny in places. The storyline is not overly original (but what is, these days?) but I thought it was very well portrayed. Dashing highwaymen (especially a gentleman!) should always be a big hit. Oh, and George Dawes is in it, too! A very watchable film which is compelling in places.

Format: DVD
Like a bright button on a dandy’s waistcoat, this film is real gem! Made with very 21st century sensibilities (and soundtrack) it is a true Restoration Period romp, and is like Hogarth’s paintings of the ‘Rakes Progress’ and ‘Gin Alley’ brought to vivid life on DVD. It’s a bawdy, squalid but glamorous world where the ‘respectable’ rich get their vicarious kicks from partying with villains and rubbing shoulders with roughtrade (not really so very different from nowadays - just ask Guy Ritchie and all those ‘Lock Stock’ wannabees, or take a look around any trendy West-end club!).
Stylised it might be, but the film evokes its 18th century period so well – this was a time when a member of the royal family was mugged in his sedan chair in Covent Garden, children were hanged for pinching a loaf of bread, and when the real highwayman Dick Turpin rode Black Bess into legend. That said, the story unfolds with a very ‘olde Englishe’ spin on all the elements and themes you’d expect to find in a classic Sergio Leone spaghetti western: two ‘heroes’ thrown into an unlikely and uneasy partnership, bound by thieves’ honour and greed; a beautiful girl; corrupt and avaricious officials; a psychopathic villain, suitably dressed in black; and the prospect of the last man standing getting the gold and the girl. The whole set-up and especially the finale at Tyburn gibbet is certainly a nod (whether conscious or not) to Leone’s ‘Good, the Bad & the Ugly’ – and I say this as a compliment, not a criticism.
All in all, a great romp, great entertainment and great fun.

Format: DVD
It's eclectic: witness a modern electronica soundtrack to an 18th century aristocracy ball. It's enjoyable: the bad guys always get their comeuppance. And importantly it's hugely entertaining -- in an imbecilic, Lethal Weapon kind of way. So what if the plot is stuck on tramlines? Does every film need to be sophisticated and prompt deep thoughts? Can't a bit of imagination, creativity, and plain old fashioned fun fill the gap? Of course it can!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Having seen the film previously, probably on the telly or round a mates, I was overjoyed to find it available on DVD.

From the cast of some the best known names in British film acting including Alan Cumming and Michael Gambon to name only two you'd have thought that the powers that be would have done justice to what is an innovative piece of cinema (I mean not a Georgian waltz but contemporary dance music demonstrating the parallels of then and now) but no.
The video transfer to DVD is, for want of better words, dark and grainy and though overflowing with non-english subtitles (not a bad thing for language students, I agree) the positive absence of anything resembling special features or production items (ok but who wants to see the trailer for a film already purchased) suggests to this fan of the film that the DVD was distributed solely on the thinking, "What do we care, some fool will buy it!" and not for any appreciation of the films true worth to British Cinematographical history.

I've seen better video transfers on films mates have bought from . .you know. . .that mate of a mate who sells the cheap movies that were imported from the far/middle east, you know the one with the quick coat and his way of moving really fast eventhough not moving his legs. Yeah that one, that fella at the car booty

Top marks for what is a touching, riotous romp in those far off cruel germ-infested Georgian days when non-licenced sexual therapists had their own strains of social discourse.

For the distibution company . . . . do us a favour . . . please. Clean up your game and show some respect where it's due, to the actors, filmmakers and the viewing fandom.
