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.
Excerpt: Yes, this movie is 22 years old, yes, it's taken me this long to see this film. And, well...I can hardly say that it was worth the wait. It was just a pretty average film. It had a huge star, in fact probably the biggest star of the time in Kevin Costner (who goes back in fort between a bad British...
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: 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.
Summary: Robin of Locksley (Costner) encounters and saves Azeem (Freeman). Sheriff of Nottingham (Rickman) rules England. The Sheriff proposes to Marian while Robin is being hunted. A wonderful cast yet the screenplay doesn't bring anything new to the plate.
Excerpt: Above-average, well-done, and far-removed take on the original Robin Hood story. The transfer is simply atrocious. Whoever did this should be ashamed of themselves. I believe Costner's Robin Hood is a good enough movie to be remastered correctly. The review by TheZoof is completely off base.
Summary: Dang, no wonder I like cheesy movies to some extent. With somewhat bad acting on the front of Costner and Mastrantonio, this film definitely gets the Oscar for one of the cheesiest films in the early 90s.
Excerpt: I've always really enjoyed this movie, no English accents and all However, the blu-ray looks just like a DVD and not even a good one. It badly needs a remaster. I thought the sound was improved and it has a nice array of extras.
