A classic story of romance, revenge, and adventure
"Lavish" --The Guardian (U.K.)
"Fine performances" --The Sun (U.K.)
"Authentic atmosphere" --London Evening Standard
John Ridd was just a boy when the villainous Doones murdered his father. Now a young man, John has two driving passions: his thirst for revenge against the outlaw Doones, and his love for the beautiful Lorna, daughter of his sworn enemies.
Clive Owen (Children of Men, Closer), Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings, Sharpe), and a luminous Polly Walker (Rome, State of Play) star in this action-packed adventure set in lawless 17th-century England during the Monmouth rebellion. Spectacular scenery, a stellar cast, and realistic period details ornament R.D. Blackmore’s beloved novel, one of the greatest love stories of all time.
With Billie Whitelaw (Quills, Napoleon and Love), Robert Stephens (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie), Hugh Fraser (Agatha Christie’s Poirot), and Miles Anderson (House of Cards).
Also, the way the "romance" was handled created no dramatic tension.
I know Sean Bean can act, but his character in here AS THE BAD GUY was little more than a cameo character who rode through once in awhile spouting lame lines.
Beside the handsome Clive Owen and Sean Bean, the other characters were not good at all.
I was disappointed, to say the least. I have loved this story since I was rather young and read the book (children's and regular, unabridged) and this. version. was. TERRIBLE. Read morePublished 3 months ago by E McConnell

I agree with the reviewer who said the A&E 2001 version of this story is much better. While the actors in this version are better known, there was no chemistry at all between Clive... Read morePublished on February 17, 2012 by Elizabeth A. Dice
Plenty of action, scenic period visuals, believable dialogue, feuding clans and forbidden love. Spring, 1600s England, with early looks at a couple of British stars in their... Read morePublished on February 24, 2011 by Harold Wolf
