This film is a '90s version of the classic Robin Hood story, with Kevin Costner starring as the good-guy thief. Costner is joined in his efforts against the murdering Sheriff of Nottingham (Alan Rickman) by Morgan Freeman who plays a philosophizing Moor, and by Nick Brimble, who plays Little John (anything but little). After Robin barely survives a watery skirmish with Little John, the two become allies and Robin joins forces with Little John's band of robber thieves to overcome the evils of the

More than happy to indulge a few moments of high-flying screen acrobatics, Prince delights in the muck -- a divine aesthetic that quickens the pace and, hopefully for younger viewers, encourages plenty of backyard recreation.
The bones of the story are comfortingly familiar, the action is rollicking, and the metaphorical moustache-twirling of Alan Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham is priceless. [Blu-ray]
...the film is so broadly characterized by melodramatics and overacting, it made ripe pickings for Mel Brooks two years later with his parody.
If not for Rickman and Freeman, this would be nigh unwatchable.
Poorly directed by reynolds, the film stars a passable Kevin Costner in the Erroll Flynn role, but it's the supporting cast that shines, especially Alan Rickman.
It wasn't exactly an epic, but it was entertaining, and that's good enough.
Laughably bad. No threat to Errol Flynn.
