I have been after this film for years!!! Finaly it's here, and it's just as good as I remember! OK, so I am a massive Big Country fan and that does make me biase, but this film just a brilliant romp from start to finish!
You start off being introduced to two bored lads, who are stuck in the worst jobs they could have imagend, in the heart of industrial Scotland. They decide to suppliment there income by highway robbery but don't have the heart, or means, to use violence.
After a shakey start, the continue to "hold up buses!" full of aging and non too intelligent American Tourists. During one hiest, one of them falls for the tour guide. Thus insues a tangled, but litte hearted and easy to follow, story of innocent minded crime and blind luck, as the two become infamous Highland legends in a Rob Roy / Robin Hood style.
As the Wolfman tries to keep his sweet-heart and the Clown revels in the status of "Scotland 17th most wanted man", things start to go wrong, and the two struggle to keep there friendship.
Finaly, good will out, and the two end the rein as legends, followed by the unworried Police and a Japanese camera crew. But as the film says "Is this the end, or just the beginning of the legend?"
The sound track is fantastic and really enhances the mood. The scenery is breath taking and the acting is simply brilliant from the two star's in there first full length film.
I just hope you will enjoy the film as much as I have. And if you want a reminder of the 'fell good' facter, look out for the Big Country ablum 'Restless Natives & rarities'.
I'll see you just outside Glencoe, on a 125, with the sound track playing and enjoying the scenery!!!
