I just can't ever get enough of this near perfect adventure film. I've always cherished films set in medieval times. There's just something about the plights of the oppressed class and the simple heroics of the man who steps forward to fight for honor and better lives for the dismal. Then there are the luxuriant castles, the dashing sword fights, the extravagant costumes, the tragically beautiful princess he's destined to fall in love with, and the evil power-hungry villain who will stop at nothing to be King.
No, it isn't original, but it's just got everything you'd ever want from a film. The story of Robin Hood has been done so many times, and unlike most of his other roles Kevin Costner is not only believable, but actually quite good this time well, except for the accent, but nobody's perfect.
Alan Rickman is just flawlessly devious as the Sheriff of Nottingham. Nobody could have done it better, and he also had the best lines "Because it's dull, it'll hurt more! Christian Slater, Morgan Freeman, Sean Connery, and especially Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio give their all, creating a truly emotional and powerful film.
I don't understand why the ratings are so low. The ending is just beautiful. I boo at the sheriff, cheer for Robin, and cry during Robin and Marian's post-sword fight embrace every time, and you will too if you ignore the cynics and give this adventure a chance. Sign In.

This is the thing about legends: there is usually a grain of truth in there somewhere, a grain from which the story grows, and then, as a general rule, everything else that you think that you know about it is a lie.
