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>

No mention is made of John, the younger brother of Richard the Lionheart. John was the de facto ruler of England from 1190-1194, while Richard was away fighting in the Third Crusade; however, John did not become de jure King of England until Richard was killed in battle in 1199. In many of the Robin Hood legends, the Sherriff of Nottingham was a loyal follower of John. See more »

so brilliant its Brazilian
16 July 2000 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

I don't like action films, i don't like hack and slash but i love this.

For me every actor does a reasonable job and Alan Rickman is outstanding as the sheriff of Nottingham, the lack of a credible English accent is not a worry to me and the flexible use of locations is also not a problem. The story is great, the screenplay is wonderful with its lack of self-conciousness. All the elements of a great epic are there, love, hate, greed, honesty.

The anachronisms really add to the film, the action scenes are tremendous. And yes i like the arrow-cam.

Don't be cynical be nice, enjoy the ride.
