Happy 300th Flixwatcher! In this second special birthday episode Sam Pay and Martin Zaltz Austwick from Song by Song join Flixwatcher to review Kobi’s choice Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is a 1991 action adventure film directed by Kevin ‘Waterworld’ Reynolds and starring the other Kevin, Kevin Costner as the eponymous Robin. In this retelling of the English folklore Robin of Locksley escapes a prison in Jerusalem with the help of a Moor named Azeem (Morgan Freeman). While Robin has been away the Sheriff of Nottingham (Alan Rickman acting with maximum ham) plots to seize the throne and make the lives of Nottingham miserable. Robin assembles a gang of outlaws to oppose the Sheriff and impress Marion (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio).
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was a huge hit in 1991, the second-highest-grossing film of the year (Terminator 2: Judgement Day was number one) and Bryan Adams’ ‘Everything I Do, I Do It For You spent 16 weeks in the UK number top spot and still holds the record for longest number one single.
Scores for recommendability were pretty solid, despite its flaws it is generally quite entertaining, mainly because of Rickman’s OTT performance, with slightly lower scores for engagement the overall rating is 3.22.
