Excerpt: Recommended for fans only. Note: The presentation on this disc is a rather dismal one. For the most part, the video is only marginally better than the previous DVD, and in some instances, it actually looks worse!
Summary: This is a really great movie and it is great to see it in HD. It is also my favorite version of Robin Hood. This version is 12 minutes longer than the theatrical version due to additional scenes that was cut from the original version.
Excerpt: 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.

A rousing adventure on a underwhelming Blu-ray Disc

Excerpt: I haven’t seen the original Robin Hood yet but I’d say that Prince of Thieves is a definitive Robin Hood movie of modern time; more so than Ridley Scott’s version. But if the film didn’t have its missteps, it could have been the definitive Robin Hood movie of the ages.
Summary: The plot line of this Robin Hood was nonsensical. Costner failed to hold true to the story of Robin Hood handed down by tradition from earlier times and popularly accepted as historical. For example what was the purpose of Morgan Freeman's role as a philosophizing Moor?
Summary: This is an overly melodramatic and sappy version of the Robin Hood tale. It doesn't help that Kevin Costner displays an unconvincing English accent throughout the film and that the movie boasts a modern, Bryan Adams-infused soundtrack, sort of like a medieval Young Guns, but not as fun.
