An American grandson of the infamous scientist, struggling to prove that his grandfather was not as insane as people believe, is invited to Transylvania, where he discovers the process that reanimates a dead body.
Robin of Locksley, known as the most skilled archer of the land, has just returned to England after fighting in the Holy Crusades, where King Richard the Lionhearted is also fighting. Robin finds that much of what he knew of England has gone to ruin, including his longtime family home having been taken away, all at the hands of the evil Prince John, Richard's brother who has assumed the throne in Richard's absence. Neurotic John is basically being controlled by the equally evil Sheriff of Rottingham, everything they doing to fatten their own coffers at the expense of the commoners and peasants. As such, Robin recruits a band of merry men to help him battle Prince John and the Sheriff, they who include: Blinkin, his blind longtime servant; Ahchoo, the misguided son of Asneeze, the man who helped him escape from prison while fighting in the Crusades; Little John, who seems to think that being called Little is only coincidental to the fact of he being a hulking man; and Little John's ...

When the Sheriff of Rottingham says to Robin when challenging him, ".... so it comes down to this, mano a mano, man to man." Actually, mano a mano means hand-to-hand, not man to man, though it can be the slang for "hermano", which would then mean brother to brother. See more »

Sheriff of Rottingham:
I was angry at you before Loxley, but now I'm really pissed off!
Pissed off? If I was that close to a horse's wiener I'd be worrying about being pissed on!

At the beginning of the closing credits the Loxley castles can be seen, that is zoomed out until the complete British islands can be seen. Then it fades out into the black. See more »
Cary Elwes have to say puts on a better performance then Costner did in RHPOT but anyhow.
Have to say this film it just makes me laugh so much mainly because the actors seem really into what their doing and you just sit there and thinking 'what the hell are they on' but in a very very very very good way.The random outbursts of songs were brilliant and well and the musical score used I really really liked.Great casting and as said before everyone seemed so into their roles
10/10 from me defiantly
'Because unlike some other Robin Hoods.I can speak with an English accent'
