Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves


In 1991, between "Dances With Wolves" and "JFK", Kevin Costner opted for some lighter fare with his crowd-pleaser ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES.

It's an interesting but very light take on the Robin Hood legend, with Costner struggling throughout on a very mysterious English accent that comes and goes.

He's in fine form when it comes to romancing Marian (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) and battling a perfectly mustache-twisting Sheriff of Nottingham.

The Sheriff is played by Alan Rickman like some medieval version of Hans Gruber from "Die Hard".

Morgan Freeman plays a major role as Azeem, a proud Muslim soldier bound to Robin through honor and Freeman is reliably good.

Christian Slater seems totally miscast as Will Scarlett, who comes off more like a grumpy teenager than an important part of Robin's band.

There's a great cameo from a major star as Richard the Lionheart that wraps up the film in great style.

Just try getting Bryan Adams "Everything I Do, I Do It For You" out of your head after watching this. haha

Costner's accent not withstanding, its a fun, historically irrelevant, action-filled popcorn movie version of the Robin Hood legend that stands tall on Costner's screen charisma, Freeman's talents and Rickman's hilariously unhinged villain.

We'll rob a B- from the rich and give it to the poor for one of Costner's biggest hits, scoring $170 million at the box office on a $48 million budget!
