Best telling of this classic tale so far.
14 October 2000 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

We all know the story of Robin Hood, it's been told over and over in movie and cartoon form for decades, and of course the story itself is ancient. I've seen a lot of ho-hum adaptations of this story, and in fact I've never been all that impressed with Errol Flynn, nor have I ever been comfortable watching men in tights prancing around. I didn't see this adaptation when it came out, but I accidentally flipped to it today when I first woke up, and I was pleasantly surprised. Every deficiency in previous tellings was gone; for the first time, I was actually engaged in the story rather than rolling my eyes at the Hollywood excesses I'm used to seeing. Uma Thurman is absolutely spectacular as an ass-kicking Marian, and the actor who plays Robin Hood is by far the best yet. I liked everything about this film, how it was directed, the cinematography, and especially the restraint shown by the director. I can't recommend it highly enough, and it certainly beats the hell out of the incredibly lame Kevin Costner telling. I don't know if this version is easy to find on videotape, but it is worth seeking out. 9 out of 10.
