Storyline

After his parents win the lottery Robin McAllister is sent to the prestigious Locksley Hall. There he experiences how the sons of the school's benafactors, John Prince and his associates Warner and Gibson, are treated like royality. Robin can't join archery club, he gets in trouble when he stands up for himself, and his parents are completely preoccupied with their new horse ranch. But it isn't until one of the school's scholarship students, Tommy, is in a terrible accident that Rob begins to take action against Prince, Warner, Gibson, and their sons. With a little help from his two new friends, Will Scarlett and John Little, and the ranch hand's daughter Marion, he electronically takes money from their company accounts to put towards Tommy's medical bills. However, as the operations become more costly and as a bubbling agent named Nottingham begins to close in on him, Robin questions his own motives. Written by Max Vaughn

Very creative twist on an old, old tale
25 May 2017 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Robin (Devon Sawa) is a middle schooler who has just moved to the Seattle area with his folks. Originally from Kansas, Robin's parents won big money in the lottery and decided to change their lives. Initially, Robin is not happy to leave his friends and get enrolled in a snooty private academy. Naturally, he is picked on but makes friends with other outcasts like Little John and Marion (Sarah Chalke). Also, Robin excels in archery but is not allowed to join the school's exclusive arrow club. He promptly starts his own. Even more amazing, as a computer whiz, Robin starts to siphon off money from the school's biggest board member, to aid a fellow student whose home burned down. Yet, soon the school is hunting vigorously for the culprit. Will they be able to track down Robin and nail him? Can Robin win the school's archery tournament and the heart of Maid Marion? This modern day twist on an old, old story is quite fun and creative. Sawa makes a great teen hero while Chalke and all of the other cast members are a joy. The lovely scenery and fine costumes, dialogue and direction add up to hearty entertainment. Any child who views it will be tickled and, most likely, will search out the legends of the real Robin Hood of Locksley.
