Plunkett & Macleane Movie Review

In 18th century Britain, they sure did have a lot of fireworks and loud rock 'n' roll music...

Jake Scott's MTV-ized Barry Lyndon gives us Miller and Carlyle as a duo of "gentleman highwaymen" who rob from the rich and spend all the winnings on nice clothes. The movie's not bad until halfway through, when the hunt for the duo intensifies and Liv Tyler's mopy character enters the scene, ultimately turning the film into an imitation of Robin Hood. No surprise that Plunkett & Macleane (hey, dig that snappy title) didn't really click at the box office.
