Trivia

The white armour worn by Ronald Lewis appears to be the same armour worn by Alan Ladd in the Black Knight made in the 1950's. See more »

Goofs

The monarch's standard includes a quadrant with the Fleur Des Lys. The relates to the monarchy's French possessions. However this connection did not arise till 1066 when William of Normandy defeated Harold at the Battle of Hastings to become William 1. So the standard could not have been that of monarchs of the Saxon times. See more »

Terrible, but not bad
4 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Robin Hood meets King Arthur, as performed by the Batley Townswomen's Guild?

The film is ludicrously bad, in too many ways to list. However, the leading actors give it their all, and they have nothing to be ashamed of.

The result is surprisingly enjoyable, and I might even watch it again on another day when my brain (like King Arthur at the start of the film) needs a complete rest.

Other than that, I have nothing to add to the reviews by Jonathan Dabell and Paul Round, which are both spot-on.
