Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Kevin Costner's lousy English accent is a small obstacle in this often exciting version of the Robin Hood fable. That aside, it's refreshing to have a preface to the old story in which we meet the robber hero of Sherwood Forest as a soldier in King Richard's Crusades, coming home to find his people under siege from the cruelties of the Sheriff of Nottingham (Alan Rickman). After Robin and his community of outcasts and fighters take to the trees, director Kevin Reynolds (Fandango, 187) is on more familiar narrative ground, and he goes for the gusto with lots of original action (Robin shoots two arrows simultaneously from his bow in two directions). Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, as Marion, makes a convincing damsel in distress and Morgan Freeman brings dignity to his role as Robin's Moor friend. Alan Rickman, however, gets the most attention for his scene-chewing role as the rotten sheriff, an almost campy performance that is highly entertaining but perhaps a little out of sorts with the rest of the film. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film, good extras - extended cut of film 28 Jan 2010
Format:Blu-ray
The film is great - a really fun swashbuckler and just as good as I remembered it.

It's great to see this film uncut for the first time in the UK since it was in the cinemas - this 12 cert version is a full 18 years overdue!

Note though that this is the extended version of the film, with roughly an extra 12 minutes of footage. Personally, I'd have preferred the theatrical version - or the choice of both (this is blu ray after all).

The transfer quality is not the best, but is perfectly adequate, and there's a decent selection of special features too.

The menus are a bit basic, but I view this as a good thing as it keeps the useful resume functionality (enabling you to stop the film and pick up from where you left off - as you can with DVDs), which is a function sorely missing from blu ray discs with flashier interfaces.

On the whole then, a great addition to your collection, especially if you don't own it already on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly Enjoyable 6 Dec 2007
Format:DVD
Im not really a fan of Robin Hood at all. In fact, I didn't ever plan to watch this film as it seemed far too boring and outdated for me. However, this film is thoroughly enjoyable; well acted, with a good plot and a great soundtrack (Bryan Adams hit - Everything I Do, which has the longest ever record at number 1 in the English charts).
Kevin Costner plays the part of Robin Hood well, and i think the character suits him. The bad accent is not that much of a let down, and to be honest, with all the Hollwood actors and actresses these days with Amerian accents in every film i didn't really notice.
Morgan Freeman is a great support actor in this film, like as always (e.g. The Shawshank Redemption) and his performance here is fantastic, despite the fact that his level of action in the film is pretty low, especially compared to Costner.
But, the real reason this movie is so so good is because of one fact. two words. Alan Rickman. I haven't really see him in many films but this has to be one of his best performances. This one of my favourite characters ever a film, just think of Johnny Depp in Pirates Of The Carribean, except Alan plays the villianous Sheriff Of Nottingham, and its played with less "campness" and more dry witt. He truly steals the show.

If you should watch this film, which i think you should, if you're into action packed films that can be watched by the whole family and that includes some romance as well, the biggest reason for watching it would be for Alan Rickman.

Well Done Alan

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I had the "Extended Edition" on DVD with a light brown box and the shadow of Robin / Marion on the shore line. Despite the dodgy editing on some scenes in the extended version, I preferred it with all the extra scenes of the Alan Rickman. This was the version I wanted to get on Blu Ray, but the UK Blu Ray version of this movie (as pictured, of which I am now reviewing) has the old original cinematic poster on the cover, and does not state that it has the extended version on the front. Its only in the tiny writing on the back that this is explained, and it does not show very well on Amazon. This IS the extended version with all of the extra scenes spliced into the movie. The "extended" DVD was also strange in that it was "Extended", but all of the violence & language was cut out!! How stupid is that?! This Blu Ray version has all the "cut" bits put back where they belong: The chopped off hand, Christian Slaters whip marks, Rotty humorously trying to get a 'better' angle with Marion, and the famous "F... me, he cleared it!" line. The picture quality is far better than the DVD version, though it's not up to par with some of the newer blu ray releases, but its still the best this film has ever looked for home release by 50 miles. The sound is also amazing and anyone who does not get all fired up by the soundtrack (Not the Bryan Adams song though!) is a fool - Best score to a film ever. For those of you wanting the full extended and uncut edition who are a little confused about which version to buy on amazon, this UK one with the shot of Robin firing a flaming arrow on the cover IS the definitive version, despite it not actualy saying so on the cover or even in the amazon heading or description.

3.0 out of 5 stars "This is English Courage" 7 April 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I love this movie so much, it's hard to say anything bad in my review. In this case, I am reviewing the BluRay edition of the movie. Nothing has come close to this take in movie history; not even Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott came clsoe, as they were constantly graded against Prince of Thieves.
This is a very poor upgrade; should you be thinking of trading your extended, 2 disc edition DVD. It's grainy as hell throug-out and the colours, (especially flsh tones) are way off the mark. There is no attractive animated menu like the DVD, it just goes straight to the movie.
This movie has been tested on PS3 through a Toshiba 720p and an LG BD350 through a 50" LCD at 1080p. Both HDMI connected. Neither caused me to take a deep breath in excitement. The soundtrack is, however vastly improved, it's sharp in the high end and although it's crisp throughout, it's let down by lack of low frequency enhancement, (LFE). Verbals are clear and driven.
My verdict:- Stick to the DVD Extended edition, or you will be disappointed.
