    Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
    This film is a '90s version of the classic Robin Hood story, with Kevin Costner starring as the good-guy thief. Costner is joined in his efforts against the murdering Sheriff of Nottingham (Alan Rickman) by Morgan Freeman who plays a philosophizing Moor, and by Nick Brimble, who plays Little John (anything but little). After Robin barely survives a watery skirmish with Little John, the two become allies and Robin joins forces with Little John's band of robber thieves to overcome the evils of the dastardly Nottingham sheriff. ~ Phillip Erlewine, Rovi

      Completely enjoyable

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      What it lacks in historical accuracy, it makes up in entertainment value. This fast-paced story plays Costner's Robin of Locksley as the straight arrow to Freeman's Akeem's dry wit. There is a faint touch of political correctness (by today's standards)in the script when Robin talks about his days spent in the Holy Land. But the movie starts moving in the right direction of the light-hearted yarn it should be by the time we see the budding romance between Costner and Mastrantonio's Lady Marian. Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham is delightfully over-the-top and he plays a key role in the film's overall success. The extra features are a little disappointing in the lack of extra content, but Pierce Brosnan's narration of "The Man, the Myth, the Legend" TVSpecial and scenes from Bryan Adams' live concert footage brought back fond memories.

      Found it!


      This movie has been the elusive unicorn for a long time. Both my BFF and I have been searching EVERYWHERE for it. I think this is the best Robin Hood movie in existence. The acting, the plot, the action...all of it is amazing. The script is well-formed and you truly come to care for all the characters. The Maid Marion isn't just a background beauty, but is a fighter and is a strong character. I highly recommend this movie. I am so glad I was able to locate it and the price was exceptional! I purchased one for me and one for my BFF as part of her Christmas gift. Great, great, great!

      Great movie to rewatch


      I remember watching this movie when I was much younger and have been watching for it to drop in price for years. I finally was able to purchase it and watch it again. It is just as great as I remember it all those years ago. It is actually pretty humorous to watch and see all of the famous people that are in it that I did not remember being in it.

      One of the good Robinhood movies

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      One of the best Robinhoods ever. Love the acting of Kevin Coster as Robinhood, also Morgan Freeman as Azeem. An American- British adventure movie with a good cast, Christian Slater as Will Scarlet and Alan Rickman as the Sheriff of Nottingham and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as Maid Marian. Good movie for 13 and up.

      Best "Robin Hood" flick around!


      This is the best version of a robin hood movie that has been made. The scenes that were added back in to the movie, however, are not necessary (I would prefer they were not there at all after watching it). Overall acting is fantastic as well as the story. I definitely recommend this one!

      Not the 1938 Classic, But Still Worthwhile


      While not nearly as timeless as the famed 1938 version titled ‘the Adventures of Robin Hood,’ this more recent rendition starring Kevin Costner still has its moments. Recommended. Widescreen, but fans may want to opt for the more recent special edition that's loaded with bonus extras not available on this dvd.

      Not the best steal ever

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      The biggest concern I had going in was Costner as the title character, but he was okay. The movie is just way overblown and badly needed to be edited down. And Alan Rickman's villain was much too "funny" for my taste; would have liked more "straight" menacing from him.

      Good movie

      • Top 250 ContributorTop 250 Contributor

      This is one of the better movies I have seen about Robin Hood. Kevin Costner is a good actor and plays Robin Hood very well. Christan Slater is very good in this as well. And yes girls there is a love story to it you will like it as well. It is a must have for anyone's collection
