Storyline

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 Lionheart, 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 Graeme Roy <gsr@cbmamiga.demon.co.uk>

Did You Know?

Trivia

In order to obtain a family friendly PG certificate for its original UK and Irish theatrical and subsequent VHS release, Will Scarlett's (played by Christian Slater) use of a profanity was changed from the original "F*ck me, they made it" and dubbed to "Blimey, they made it". The 12 rated DVD release restored the profanity and subsequent television showings in he UK that run past the 9pm watershed period tend to show the 12 rated version of the film including that one profanity.

Goofs

Even though some renditions of the Robin Hood Saga done in modern times feature King Richard as interrupting the wedding of Robin and Marion; Richard was killed in France prior to his return from the Third Crusade. He would not have been alive to be present at the wedding. See more »
