The Sheriff's scribe tells him that Robin and his men have looted money from them for about five months. Assuming that the looting started about the time that Robin slashed the Sheriff's face, his scar shouldn't still be red or still be stitched up. See more »

All initial copies of the original 1991 UK 'PG' Video had the full promo video for Bryan Adams' "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)" played underneath the credits at the end of the film. See more »
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was one of the best films of 1991, a triumph even over the special effects hype of Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
Despite the critics' complete and utter distaste for the film, I found it fun, well-acted, and fast-paced. Great performances abound including Morgan Freeman as the Moorish warrior Azeem, Alan Rickman as the hysterical Sheriff of Nottingham, and Kevin Costner as our stalwart Robin of Locksley.
There are great action sequences including the battle against the hired Celts and Nottingham's soldiers and the final confrontation at the climax of the film.
Finally, don't be put off by Costner's lack of an English dialect. It doesn't hurt the film at all, and is just something critics were instantly attracted to, as it is their job to find faults.
