Acceptable low budget sword-play
25 October 1998 | by buxSee all my reviews

The original Robin Hood Legend plus Lippert Pictures, Inc. equals watchable low budget adventure. It is the same old story, the rotten Sheriff of Nottingham chasing Robbie and his Merry Fellas thru what was left of the wooded area of Southern California. Cheap sets, stiff acting but enough action to keep us interested.
