Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

Critics Consensus

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves brings a wonderfully villainous Alan Rickman to this oft-adapted tale, but he's robbed by big-budget bombast and a muddled screenplay.

Movie Info

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 dastardly Nottingham sheriff. ~ Rovi

Audience Reviews for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves


A great all star cast action adventure story of Robin Hood. Alan Rickamn is perfect as the evil, crazy sheriff of Nottingham. Has some big stunts and battles, and plenty of humour, something for everyone.

An unfocused, unexciting and overlong movie that is more like a mixed salad of accents without any idea if it wants to be a campy adventure for the whole family in the old-fashioned style of Errol Flynn's movies (which it should be) or the violent PG-13 movie that it turns out to be.

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. ;)
