The fight sequences are explosive, the physical production is impressive, and the supporting performances are full of juice.

A professionally made, solid film. One of the few Costner hasn't ruined.

The bad guy actually has the line "Cancel Christmas!!!" Anyway, still the best Robin Hood in over 50 years. ;)

A wonderful new version of Robin Hood. I especially loved Alan Rickman as the sheriff of Nottingham. This movie is exciting, action packed, and very entertaining.
