Review by banion48 (posted on 6-Apr-2005)

This film came out long before the flood of Robin Hood flicks that emerged in the nineties. Kevin Costner plays the rogue hero, alongside Morgan Freeman as his Moorish friend, and Christian Slater, a Judas in their midst. Costner portrays Robin of Locksley with dignity and just the right touch of boyishness to make it believable. The violence of the medieval lifestyle is emphasized enough for it to be credible as well, showing how meanly these people lived and what sort of day-to-day existence had to be meted out. Like all of Costner's time pieces he sets the stage marvellously and the viewer is not left wanting.
