Storyline

After being captured by Turks during the Crusades, Robin of Locksley and a Moor, Azeem, escape back to England, where Azeem vows to remain until he repays Robin for saving his life. Meanwhile, Robin's father, a nobleman loyal to King Richard the Lionhearted, has been murdered by the brutal Sheriff of Nottingham, who helped install Richard's treacherous brother, Prince John, as king while Richard is overseas fighting the Crusades. When Robin returns home, he vows to avenge his father's death and restore Richard to the throne. Even though Maid Marian, his childhood friend, cannot help him, he escapes to the Forest of Sherwood where he joins a band of exiled villagers and becomes their leader. With their help he attempts to cleanse the land of the evil that the Sheriff has spread. Written by Graeme Roy <gsr@cbmamiga.demon.co.uk>

Goofs

When Robin and Azeem are escaping from the sheriff's men at Marian's home, Robin's horse is shot with a crossbow bolt, and as they escape one can clearly see that the arrow is broken since the part sticking out of the horse has no feathers. Later when they stop, right before they enter the Sherwood Forrest, Robin turns to the wound and breaks the arrow, removing the (now reappearing) feathers. See more »

1 bonus star for Alan Rickman
24 November 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Avoid this and go straight to the 1938 Adventures of Robin Hood. If you can't find that go to the 1922 Robin Hood starring Douglas Fairbanks.

There is only one reason to watch this film and that is Alan Rickman as the scenery chewing Sheriff "I'll upstage everyone" of Nottingham. He is also the only reason I am not giving this film one star.

I've seen wooden dolls with a wider range of expression and more charisma than what Kevin Costner puts on display here. Adding a crusader element to Robin's story does nothing to advance the story. Morgan Freeman does a good job as the completely apocryphal Moor in England, but is only really asked to dispense sage advice and look noble. Hint to the screenwriters - Robin Hood is a classic legend, you should be picking which bits to leave out, not stuffing new things into it.

All the other actors in the film had about as much impact as blancmange.
