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?…
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?
"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.
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.
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.
Another childhood favourite of mine appearing on tv on the same day. Great viewing.
I wanted to be nothing more than Robin Hood when I was a kid and it was all thanks to this brilliant yet strange adaptation to the famous tale.
This has always been my favourite movie based on Robin Hood and I believe that may be due to the fact that not only does it feature Morgan Freeman but also Alan Rickman, one of the most badass villains in movie history and quite frankly used to creep me out when I was younger. Let's be honest it also has a kickass theme (no, not Bryan Adams).
It's another one of those films I will quote an awful lot due to the 30+ viewings I've had of this movie and always seems to put a smile on my face. Fantastic!
Those that even make a mention of the American fucking accent can go do one. The likelihood of Robin or anyone having the same accent we have today is incredibly far fetched. Considering we have no actual recording from these times who truly knows how they sounded.
The actual film is highly enjoyable despite missing out on a few of the things the story of Robin Hood is famous for; the archery tournament, Prince John etc.
I still remember seeing this film at the theater as a child! This movie inspired us as boys to make our own bows and shoot arrows at each other! Costner may not be the best Robin Hood, but I can say Rickman is definitely the best Sheriff of Nottingham ever in film! This movie is still entertaining to me anytime I watch it!
A fun version of the well known story.
L ots of hiding in trees.
A terrific bad guy.
N ot sure of his name
R untime is a bit much.
I wonder did the Ewoks mind the crew using their village?
C ould have done with more arrows.
K evin Costner is not trying the English accent.
M organ Freeman is in a different movie.
A nd i cant remember the actor who played the bad guy.
N o its on the tip of my tongue.
100% historically accurate
I know it wont win awards but tjere is something about this movie that makes it amazing. Still the best robin hood movie ive seen. Better than the 2010 Russell crowe one.
So I went to the used bookstore to look for some super hero DVDs that I didn't have, and while I was looking I came across a few more movies I had not planned on watching, but picked them up because they were cheap. And then I saw The Mask of Zorro and it hit me that I was being too restrictive in what I was considering a super hero movie. Is The Lone Ranger a super hero movie? Is The Last temptation of Christ? I can't keep amending what counts as super hero movie or I'll be watching them forever, but I thought it would be interested to watch some less traditional super hero-esque movies and see how trends…
I really did enjoyed this movie. Love Alan Rickman in this movie. Such a good villain.
I was really looking forward to this movie. My brother said it was good. I was disappointed.
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…
