Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
For the good of all men, and the love of one woman, he fought to uphold justice by breaking the law.
When the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham murders Robin's father, the legendary archer vows vengeance. To accomplish his mission, Robin joins forces with a band of exiled villagers (and comely Maid Marian), and together they battle to end the evil sheriff's reign of terror.
Wow Robin Hood so has a nice american accent, yep he sure sounds like he was born in Britain alright.
The story is about are main character Robin Hood returns home with a Moorish companion to find his father murdered, his land taken and the land ruled by the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham. Moving to Sherwood Forest, he starts a band of thieves to undermine the sheriff and bring an end to his corruption.
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is a depressing, sloppy movie with less character development from are character's and more of the action. Kevin Costener through out this movie used a american accent and not a British accent and to me that is just lazy. What's next?…
"Locksley! I'm gonna cut your heart out WITH A SPOON!"
I'm pretty sure that if I watched this for the first time today, I wouldn't like it. I'd detest all of the inaccuracies, plotholes and dodgy accents. But I didn't see this for the first time today. I've seen this countless times since I was a kid and back then it was only the film's sense of adventure that mattered to me and still does now. Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves, to this very day, never fails to transport me back to my 12 year old self.
this movie I grew up with . I think my parents even took me to the theater to see it...
Kevin Costner isnt my fav actor .. in fact he isnt even the best part of this movie...
ITS ALAN FUCKING RICKMAN ... I was terrified of this man for many many years only knowing him from this and die hard... the man is brilliant and just does evil soooo well .
also HELLO MORGAN FREEMAN ... buff much?
As a huge fan of Robin Hood in general--the 1938 version being one of my favorite movies--I had high hopes that this rendition would hold up, but unfortunately, I found my interest wandering throughout its elongated running time.
Aside from his performance in Dances with Wolves, I'm beginning to think that Kevin Costner is the king of 90's mediocrity, at least when it comes to adventure movies.
This is a film that has some pretty incredible set pieces, but as important as castles and dining halls are to any Robin Hood movie, Robin Hood himself better be suave and charismatic--something Costner couldn't quite pull off.
That, as well as lackluster swordplay, dull cinematography, and unnecessary magic, keeps this interpretation from succeeding.
And there's the miserably-comedic breaking of the 4th wall by Friar Tuck at the end... yeah fuck that.
My wife gasped when I stated I hadn't watched this film before, one of those that films that just passed me by. I like the tail of Robin Hood and what he stands for, however I just wasn't fond of Kevin Costner playing him, I think he's too bland and wooden and perhaps I would of enjoyed the film a little more had it not been him, who knows. Alan Rickman is easily the best thing in the film followed closely by the song.
So much cheesier than I remembered. It's always a delight to watch Alan Rickman. Having not seen it since, I guess, 1995 there's a few adult jokes I didn't get at the time. I was 12 and didn't understand why he told the girl to bring a friend. I do now and applaud him.
Even Christian Slater try's to have an English accent... I did not believe Costner's performance at all. But the movie is not bad and entertaining. Rickman steals the show.
This film has not aged well. But a mixed cocktail of nostalgia, Kevin Costner cheese, Alan Rickman being Alan Rickman, Morgan Freeman playing a Moor, Christian Slater whining and singing and Sean Connery making the most unexpected/ pointless/ fantastic cameo of all time make this an enjoyable film. First time watching since countless viewings as a kid. Didnt maintain the same magic or sense of adventure that it once held but still a good time. Recommended for any die-hard Costner fans who love to experience his all-American good guy charm whilst playing a 12th century English nobleman - the guy is fricken dynamic.
I blame Bryan Adams.
Leider sieht man der Robin-Hood-Verfilmung mit Kevin Costner sein Alter von inzwischen 14 Jahren mehr als deutlich an, was vor allem an der Ausstattung, den Kostümen und der schlechten Kameraarbeit liegt gegen die Serien wie "Xena" und "Hercules" sogar besser ausschauen.
My mind tells me that this is not a very good movie, but alas my heart cannot resist. I will watch it anytime it's on TV, flaws and all. Extra points for nostalgia.
Possibly nostalgia glasses affecting me but this is the epitome of gorgeous & gaudy Hollywood excess. Utterly unhistorical and reveling in that fact, this Americanised gem hits every action beat.
Entertaining, but incredibly LONG - the film could've been trimmed down by an hour.
If you're a fan of Robin Hood, you should have a better time with it. Kevin Costner is the only person without an English accent, but I didn't find it distracting.
That song... I am NOT a fan of Bryan Adams. That song sucks me back to the early 1990's, when every time you turned on the radio it was either "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)" or "Life is a Highway" or "Achy Breaky Heart" or "Black or White". It was a horrible time. A horrible, horrible sounding time to live in. Everyone had big frizzy hair, pastel flower print blouses, and neon…
The movie of the day! Loved it! Great plot (Robin Hood is one of the best characters ever imagined!) and awesome music!
A big smile for 'EVERYTHING I DO, I DO IT FOR YOU' by Bryan Adams at the end of the movie!
- wife said she'd never seen it before; I kind of wish ... I hadn't watched it again
- Alan Rickman's comic skills are way undervalued
There are some voracious film watchers on Letterboxd with diverse tastes so I thought it would be interesting to see…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
