Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle, as Will Plunkett and Captain James Macleane, who find their calling as highwaymen in the 18th century England.
With strong support from a great cast including Liv Tyler, Michael Gambon and Ken Stott.
Those looking for deep, historical drama will not find it here.
Instead, this is just a thoroughly enjoyable, laugh-a-minute, adventure.
And there’s nothing wrong with that.
My favorite part, when Jonny Lee Miller brandishes his guns, still riding high on the thrill of their last robbery, and exalts:
“Still, I was fabulous, and it was a bloody good laugh!”
