A high school swim champion with a troubled past enrolls in the U.S. Coast Guard's "A" School, where legendary rescue swimmer Ben Randall teaches him some hard lessons about loss, love, and self-sacrifice.
As the Mayan kingdom faces its decline, the rulers insist the key to prosperity is to build more temples and offer human sacrifices. Jaguar Paw, a young man captured for sacrifice, flees to avoid his fate.
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

Words and phrases which did not exist in 1194 are used by characters, and Robin has an accent which doesn't fit in. We are presumably hearing a modern translation of what they were really saying. 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 »
I loved this movie. It had drama and kept me in my seat when I saw it. Kevin Costner was wonderful in the role of Robin Hood. He has a way of keeping you interested in any movie he is in. The way this movie was shot showed a diversity of feeling and really made you think that they wanted to do the best job ever on showing everything from laughter to heartfelt sadness.
I hope that people who haven't seen this movie will really consider seeing it sometime. whether by buying the DVD or by renting the movie. It will be well worth it. I would rate this movie as one of the top ten movies that i have seen. You can't get much better that a good Kevin Costner movie and you can't get much better than a good drama.
I know that some people would not agree with this opinion but I'm pleased with what I saw in this movie.
