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.

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.

For some the Errol Flynn version is and will continue to be the quintessential Robin Hood film yet Kevin Costner and the late Alan Rickman put on a performance that could leave some room for doubt. Yes there are dodgy accents, a delightfully over the top performance of the Sheriff of Nottingham (courtesy of Alan Rickman) and a maid Marion with a dodgy wig but on the whole the storyline is decent, plenty of action in the fight scenes and a smorgasbord of A-List actors backing them up.

The basic premise is Robin returning from the crusades after escaping near death with a fellow warrior in tow (Morgan Freeman). Upon finding his father murdered and land burned at the hands of the sheriff, revenge is sworn.

This Blu-Ray contains the extended cut of the film which adds around 12-13 minutes of footage to the theatrical cut. This mainly comprises of scene extensions and sub plots which were deemed to slow the pace of the film, certainly a welcome restoration as some cuts were kinda obvious on the cinema release (such as the sheriffs aides lack of speech half way through, due to tongue removal). Also on the disc are two features with the cast discussing the film, two audio commentary tracks, isolated music score and a live performance of the chart topping 'Everything I Do' from Bryan Adams.

The main feature's video and audio quality is very good and a welcome upgrade from DVD, extras are in standard definition but still good non the less.

This film came out during my teenage years and I've got great memories of watching it on VHS over and over again. There is little historical accuracy to pin on the whole legend of Robin Hood, but this film is all over the place for historical and geographical accuracy - but it's still a wonderful film despite this. The American actors make poor attempts to try and be English, but again, that doesn't matter. This is just a great film with humour, action, love, friendship, bad guys, good guys, witches, Alan Rickman (although Alan, what were you thinking in your death scene?!). The scenery is wonderful with wonderful UK locations used to make a wonderful backdrop.

The Blu-ray extended cut and extras make for a great value disc and I have loved revisiting my teenage memories of this fab film. The rendering wasn't quite as crisp as I would expect for HD but it's better than SD.

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.
