Big, blond and bland Lex Barker sinks in tawdry pirate tale
6 May 2005 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

"Robin Hood and the Pirates" is without doubt the saddest entry yet in a trail of tawdry films set in Sherwood. The coastal Mediterranean locale in this one resembles England about as much as its inhabitants resemble Britons. Lex Barker, usually a stalwart performer in the historic adventure drama here can do little to rise above the banal script which leaves no cliché unplayed. Mario Scaccio as the evil Lord Brooks makes a pitiful adversary, so outmatched by big, blond and bland Barker that this Robin Hood and his crew look like the bullies in comparison to such scrawny and lackluster villains. After the magnificent 1938 Flynn version there had been a steady stream of inferior sequels,most of which do not merit much notice. To further enjoy the Robin Hood character's exploits, one would do better to seek out the 1952 Richard Todd version or the equally good 1954 Don Taylor version, both of which are leagues ahead of this Robin Hood pirate venture which sinks in its own tedium.
