Don't listen to Maltin's summary. If you are Robin Hood fan you need to see this., 4 April 2000
Author: eeyored

Maltin doesn't seem to like this movie yet gives it 3 stars.

The movie is very well done.It is a bit of a downer to see old versions of these classic heroes, villains, and heroines, but is a welcomed different take on the Robin Hood story. I would take one of these any day than a bad remake like Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.

Sean Connery is great as a weary Robing Hood back from the crusades who suddenly is rejeunivated when he meets up with Marian and the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Robert Shaw is as usual, perfect in his role as the sheriff. You hate him but you can't hate him too much. He's Robert Shaw. You love to hate him.

Nicol Williamson is a very good Little John, who is Robin's constant companion.

Richard Harris is perfect as malevolent King Richard.

Of course only Audrey Hepburn's Marian could play opposite Connery's Robin without coming off as slight.

The movie takes no easy or unrealistic turns. It is a very and realistic look at Robin Hood.

Warning you might not like the ending, but after you think about it for a while it makes sense.

Lots of potent imagery.
