Movie Info

Robin Hood (Barrie Ingham) again robs from the rich to give to the poor. The evil Sheriff of Nottingham (John Arnatt) is still his foe, but Robin's primary adversary is his own cousin Roger (Peter Blythe). Roger has burned the will of Robin's father which promises all land and money to his son. Roger takes control of the estate, and again Robin is an outlaw hiding out in Sherwood Forest. The sheriff is amused at Roger's inability to corral his cousin Robin, who cavorts with Little John and Friar Tuck in bucolic splendor. The trio must rescue Maid Marian (Gay Hamilton) and her brother from the castle of the wicked King John. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Audience Reviews for A Challenge for Robin Hood

An interesting "reboot" of the Robin Hood character. Since I've been spoiled rotten with the Errol Flynn version, it's hard to judge this film fairly. I enjoyed it, but wasn't overwhelmed with it. I'll just say that when it takes a pie-fight to cause a ruckus at the "games" (in this case, a wrestling match between Little John (John Little) and Robin), then something is sorely amiss in the greenwood. Also, the film itself just seemed flat, unlike the bright colors from Flynn's outing. That aspect (the wearing of Lincoln Green) may be more realistic, but for viewers it's simply drab in front of the dull backgrounds. As I said, I enjoyed it, so that bumps it up to a 3-star rating in my book, but not much hope of it showing any upward movement.
