I order you to leave this man be, and to get off my land.
Sir Miles Folcanet:
Well well, leave him be? Yes, of course we could do as you suggest. But the poacher will still have his eyes so he could poach again.

You won't have many surprises in the plot of this new Robin, but the twists and turns on the old themes make this a surprisingly entertaining adventure. Bergin is excellent as Robin, giving the character a dark and sexy flavor that is very appealing. Thurman is a willful, `modern', but never unfeminine heroine. Unlike so many versions, this Robin uses a heavy, lethal broadsword instead of a rapier, and the fights are violent and convincing. I wouldn't want to do without the Flynn version, but I am very happy to have found this new, fresh and lively edition.
