Robin and Marian

Critics Consensus

Robin and Marian gives the legendary characters a somber sendoff, finding ample success in the romantic chemistry between Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn while yielding diminishing returns in its attempts at relevant satire.

  • Robin and Marian is a film that must stand or fall on the strength of its stars. Fortunately, it has two of the best."

  • The idea of picking up the Robin Hood legend 20 years later seems okay at first consideration, but Goldman and Lester never got beyond the premise.

  • The social satire gets precious at times, but Connery (sans hairpiece!) and Hepburn (swathed for the first hour in a nun's wimple) bring a fervid depth of feeling to their characters' rekindled courtship.

    February 27, 2007 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • It's one of those rare movies, like King Hu's Touch of Zen, that handles its historical imagery so cleanly, and contains its pretensions so solidly within sure characterisation and plotting, that it is often sublimely expressive.

  • Connery and Hepburn seem to have arrived at a tacit understanding between themselves about their characters. They glow. They really do seem in love. And they project as marvelously complex, fond, tender people.

    October 23, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • If nothing else, the performances of Connery and Hepburn are welcome delights.

    Connery and Hepburn fill the screen with the end of the popular and romantic legend that's after THE END of all the others. After they kiss triumphantly and ride off into the sunset, what happens next? Richard Lester crafts a piece that laughs at the loss of the luster of youth, but only a little, and works to embrace what comes next. The stars really make this one work.

    Err, 1976. Lots of big names.

    Maybe I need to see this one again, but all I remember is that Robin Hood was older and there wasn't much going on, and it was boring, but I 'll give it another try someday.

    An entertaining allthough at times very silly rendition of Robin Hood. This story takes place 20 years after the commonly told legend of Robin in Sherwood, and depicts Richard the Lion-Heart very differently as he is usually depicted in Robin Hood tales, this time he is depicted ruthless and more like the man he was. A pretty big cast consisting of Sean Connery, Audrey Hepburn, Robert Shaw, Nicol WIlliamson, Richard Harris, Denholm Elliot, and Ian Holm. I can't help but love this movie, at times it does get a bit campy, but it is so enjoyable and entertaining, and iIt does have a great EPIC finale.
