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 Lionhearted, 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>

Trivia

The film was one of the few Hollywood productions of recent years to receive praise from Jack Shaheen, a longtime Arab-American activist whose book "Reel Bad Arabs" lashed out at all of his perceived examples of motion pictures that contained insulting or inaccurate views of Arabs and Muslims. Shaheen wrote that Morgan Freeman's portrayal of Azeem was very positive, in that Azeem was portrayed as a devout Muslim, and an intelligent, decent man who fights against the vile Sheriff of Nottingham. Shaheen also liked the way Robin Hood indirectly praised the Muslim natives during the Crusades, by saying, "One man defending his home is worth more than ten hired soldiers." See more »

Alternate Versions

For many years, the UK version had censorship issues in order to maintain a PG rating. The cinema version was cut by 14 secs with edits made to the opening scene and the single use of the F-word towards the end of the film. The 1991 & 1995 video versions lost a further 18 secs of footage, which completely removed any trace of the hand amputation scene and made additional cuts to other scenes of language, violence and sexual threat - owing to complaints made to the BBFC from parents. The 2003 Extended Edition release saw many of the cuts waived though 28 secs remained edited; namely part of the hand amputation scene, the stabbing of Gisbourne, shots of the Sheriff forcing Marian's legs apart during the assault, and the climactic hanging sequence. The cuts were finally waved in 2009 after an upgrade to a 12 rating for the UK Blu-ray. See more »
