Storyline

David Wood stars as Robin Hood, who steals from a group of rich nobles and is hunted by the furious (and slightly overweight) Sheriff of Nottingham. The Sheriff dispatches his men to find Robin Hood, but Robin is able to accumulate a sizable group of "Merry Men" to seek out the infamous Friar Tuck to help them in their rebellion.

"Merry" this ain't
8 May 2008 | by (San Ho) – See all my reviews

Perhaps not the *worst* short in the Martinez cavalcade of shock, this backyard fairy tale takes a sadistic and darkly humorous approach to its folklore legend like a Monty Python skit. We are immediately introduced to Robin Hood, a dashing Errol Flynn persona, here dressed in a hooded sweatshirt and sweats – comfortably awkward in that his rich victims are wearing the same (but with a thrift store blazer for a capper). It isn't long before all heck breaks loose and we are treated to a violent river crossing with Little John that includes enough broken tree branches and stuntman leaps that it makes the similar sequence in Robin Hood Daffy seem like a mere child's parody. Then fat-ass Friar Tuck gets in on the act and beefs his way through on onslaught of merry men/henchmen and (spoilers) chucks a spear through Robin Hood's chest plate, killing him instantly! I was shocked by this surprise twist. Appropriate narration is humorous and informative and is not shameless enough to shoehorn in a John Saxon reference in its devilish parade of charlatans and miscreants. A poor man realizing he now has money turns into tragedy as his excitement sends him crashing down a grassy hill. As per usual for these pre-2000 productions, the cinematography looks like an underground bestiality video.
