Made for cinematic release but competition from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves ensured that it debuted on cable in the US (at 150 minutes) despite a cinema release elsewhere. USA videocassette version removes 34 minutes of footage. See more »
You won't have many surprises in the plot of this new Robin, but the twists and turns on the old themes make this a surprisingly entertaining adventure. Bergin is excellent as Robin, giving the character a dark and sexy flavor that is very appealing. Thurman is a willful, `modern', but never unfeminine heroine. Unlike so many versions, this Robin uses a heavy, lethal broadsword instead of a rapier, and the fights are violent and convincing. I wouldn't want to do without the Flynn version, but I am very happy to have found this new, fresh and lively edition.
