Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is an entertainment without a particular point of view.
While the makers of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves may have set out to bury the poor old duffer of Sherwood Forest in a welter of trendy banter, they have ended up burying themselves as well.
Much as I admire Costner, it is the very qualities of honesty, honor and sincerity he projects so forcefully that encumber this Robin.
Its ostensibly canny match of star and subject assures that Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves will fill theaters. But will it send moviegoers out enthralled? The message from this cracked crystal ball is: Naaah.
There's no subtlety in this Robin Hood, but subtlety isn't everything: Grit and obviousness have coarser charms, and the director makes much of these.
The fight sequences are explosive, the physical production is impressive, and the supporting performances are full of juice.
Rickman's casualness is the unwitting emblem of this silly, but enjoyable, Hollywood romp from yesteryear.
It's a slick and sassy attempt to get mileage from a dependable vehicle by wrapping it in as many sure-fire gimmicks as the filmmakers can cram onto the screen.
This is a big, colorful, sharp-witted and beautifully photographed rendering of the tale of the olde English guerrilla fighter -- two solidly entertaining hours.
With a strange mix of varying English and American accents and the weight of a film with too many subplots, Robin Hood strains credibility. It also feels long.
It's fun and frantic, although the wit falls way short.
Costner is not a Robin Hood for the ages, but in this expensively mounted production, he'll do as a Robin Hood for the summer.
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. ;)
