Movie Info

Initially conceived as a theatrical feature, but originally aired on television in the United States, Robin Hood puts slight, but effective, twists on the legendary tale. Starring Patrick Bergin in the title role, the film follows Robin and his group of bandits as they fight Prince John and save Maid Marion (Uma Thurman). This version is a little grittier than both Errol Flynn's classic movie or the contemporary extravaganza starring Kevin Costner, since Bergin is quite down-to-earth and Thurman makes Marion into a brat, not a helpless maiden. However, these qualities and the stately photography make the film quite entertaining, and it easily equals Costner's version, even if it can't match Flynn's timeless movie. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Robin Hood

All Critics (1)

A passable, intermittently entertaining version of the classic saga, but the best rendition still is the 1938 Errol Flynn swashbuckling film.

Audience Reviews for Robin Hood


Good plot, the authenticity of the weaponry was spot on. THe characters were believable, the fight scenes were flawed as sword fighting would have been in those days, not necessarily the tidy swash buckling that we would see in an Erol Flynn movie. How can anyone not like this movie?

Adequate version of the classic tale, Bergin is certainly preferable to Kevin Costner in Prince of Thieves and Krabbe is good but Uma is a blah Maid Marian and the whole thing is murky. Not a bad try but nothing beats the Errol Flynn version.

Patrick Bergin was not bad as Robin Hood but not much as Kevin Kostner. I think Kevin Kostners perfomance as Robin Hood will stay a legend.
