Princess of Thieves Reviews
....oh the movie..(shrug)...it's OK. Knightley does alright, Mcdowell is always good and it is generally pretty silly and lightweight without actually adding anything of value to the Robin Hood mythos.
Stick to Errol Flynn for fun or Robin of Sherwood (TV series) as the definitive stories told on celluloid.
Revolving around the attempts of Robin Hood (and subsequently Gwyn) to safely transport King Richards illegitimate son Phillip to London in an effort to thwart Prince John's designs on the English throne. The movie has enough action to keep the young ones happy and enough drama and romance to make it a diverting picture for the adults.

Female protagonist hates the typical classification of females of the time. Boring, we've seen it before (and the English accent does little to liven it up). In fact, the only GOOD part of the movie was her little friend "what's-his-name the monk." But then he didn't die, which was a shame, because that could have given the movie a bit of substance.
The movie ends with female protagonist saying stuff that I wasn't convinced to care about with her English accent, and tilting her head the way she did the entire movie.
All in all, don't bother to watch this.
But they got a good legendary folk hero they're working with.
And it is Kiera Knightley.
