5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Original!, 20 Mar 2000
Set in 17th Century London, this movie depicts the life of Captain James McLaine "The Gentleman Highwayman". Whilst only very loosly based on the true story, it is a ripping yarn none the less.
The movie really depicts the filth and squalour of the times, and the images are very realistic, although I feel the film ws slightly spoilt by the inclusion of modern Rock, and Dance music, which was good, but innapropriate to the timeframe.
Make no bones about it, this is a truly excellent movie, although the torture, and hanging scenes may have been a little over done.
Buy it, you won't be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mel Gibson once again plays the Anti-Hero., 20 Mar 2000
This review is from: Payback [1999] [DVD] (DVD)
Not since the original "Mad Max", have I seen Mel Ginson play a character as dark as "Porter".
A well acted Film-Noir Gangster movie, with some interesting performances from the supporting actors. I probably wouldn't have cast James Coburn in the part he had, but he managed (just).
Great action, and a convoluted plot that will keep anybody on the edge of thier seat. A bit gruesome in places, and not for the faint hearted, but well worth buying.
