Costner might at least have attempted an English accent, for God's sake!
And how is it that he and Morgan 'the organ' Freeman crossed the White Cliffs of Dover and arrived in Northumberland. I know England's a comparatively small country but it takes more than five seconds to get from one end t'other.
Steaming dung to be forever compounded by that bloody Brian Adams song. Gemma (10 out of 10 )
This is one of my favourite films. Yes, Costner has an american accent, but I still think it's great. It's really romantic to see Robin fighting for Marian, and when he says 'I'd die for you' I cry every time. Plus, the Bryan Adams song is my favourite song of all time. Each to their own, don't hate me!amanda (8 out of 10 )
I do recognize that this movie is the complete cheese. Christian Slater and Bryan Adams that means you, but it's rad nevertheless, if only for the one liners and intense combat that ensues throughout the film. Also, Alan Rickman is the ultimate. Never forget. I've been watching this movie since I was 9 and it's still on my top ten.Evie (10 out of 10 )
I think it's a really cool movie. And Christian Slater is a really good actor. Of course the others were very good too!lukus22 (8 out of 10 )
As I read the book before I saw the film I'd already fallen in love with the ideas of the gallant selfless heroes and the sassy heroine, and the film lived up! Not often that this happens (with the exception of the green mile), Costner was tense enough, Christian Slater played the (I learned my lesson) character well and Morgan Freeman his typical "wise man" role was brilliant. Last but far from least Alan Rickman was hilarious and slimey all at once. To pick a fault Sean Connery as the greatest english king ever (and still very scottish), well I laughed my ass off.Marsha (8 out of 10 )
I love the movie since I could remember when it first came out around the early 90's. Christian Slater was so cool and also Alan Rickmen was pretty good (he always plays the "bad-guy" parts so well). Both of them are a few of my many favorite actors. Plus my FAVORITE part in the whole movie was when: "Knowing that. Our father loved you me then me" Will said. "Our father?". "We are brothers, Robin of Locksley. I am the son of the woman who replaced your mother for a time! It was your anger that drove them away!". "It's a LIE!" Robin yelled, grabbing Will by his shirt. "IT'S NOT A LIE! You ruined my LIFE! I have more reasons to hate more than anyone. But I dare to believe in you. All I have to say, brother, are you willing to finish off what you started?". "I have brother." Robin hugged Will. "I have a brother! We go together, side my side. To the end!".Milo (2 out of 10 )
Dover- Northumberland- Nottingham. Huh? They must have taken the scenic route.Jim (4 out of 10 )
If you think that Richard "the lionheart" was the greatest "English" king ever, then you haven't read much history. He abandoned his kingdom for years to pursue riches and fame elsewhere. He was also hardly "noble", being responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of women and children who were hostages at the battle of Aker. And if they had cast it correctly, they wouldn't have cast a Scot, but a Frenchman, as Richard was of French lineage and spoke little or no English. An entertaining flick that could not decide if it was an action movie, a comedy, or an afterschool special on race relations.Kate (10 out of 10 )
I have loved this movie since I'd first seen it eight years ago. In fact when I asked mum to hire it for me, but the copy had been stolen. Lucky she bought it that very same day. I think that Kevin Costner portrayed Robin Hood well. When I first saw it, I never knew he was American, but it didn't even appear in his voice while he was acting. Morgan Freeman plays any of his roles perfectly and he plays Azeem perfectly. Christian Slater, well he suited his role of being an arse. Alan Rickman and Michael Wincott. Both men are excellent actors, Michael suits playing the baddie in any movie he plays (Musketeers is one of my favourite movies and he plays Rochefort so well), while Alan Rickman deserves to play a bad guy, he has a way of acting that makes it all seem real. Overall the plot, characters and beautiful sceneries of England are amazing and it nevers ceases to amaze me at where the Robin Hood legend will be taken next.Steve (10 out of 10 )
One of the greatest movies ever made. The script is really good, but nobody mentioned how great the soundtrack fits in. I watched it when I was a kid but ended up losing the VHS tape. I was happy when the DVD came out.Kelly (10 out of 10 )
It doesn't matter about how characters got from one place to another or how evil King Richard really was, it's fictional. Just enjoy the film :D I love thi film so much I can not believe it was made in 1991. My favourite scene has to be when Wulf gets hung. He is so adorable and I was SO glad when Robin shot through the rope, that was a bloody brilliant shot. Also, Alan Rickman has to be the best bad guy ever. He portrays his character so well. I rate this film.Naima (10 out of 10 )
I have loved this film since I was a kid which is why it's still one of my favourites! I think Daniel Newman who played Wulf did a very good job as his roe. Especially in the scene of his hanging, that really moved me. I love the plot and storyline and I think th soundtrack is brilliant! I love the song so much and I think this film is great.
