Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (1991) - Episode 32
NO BLADES. NO BOWS. LEAVE YER WEAPONS ‘ERE. We’re off to Sherwood Forest with the bemulleted, Nottingham-by-way-of-Burbank-accented Robin of Locksley, as he returns from The Crusades with a taste for swashbuckling justice in the 1991 mega-smash Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
Accompanied by the capable and noble Moor Azeem (Morgan Freeman), Kevin Costner’s Robin romances the radiant Maid Marion, robs the rich, and rebels against the reprehensible Sheriff of Nottingham (an uproariously pantomime-pitch Alan Rickman) with the assistance of a band of tree-dwelling local folk.
The second Kevins Costner & Reynolds collaboration before the ill-fated Waterworld, this epic romp packs in Brian Blessed, Crystal Maze-esque set design, gleaming white asses in waterfalls and more ill-placed Cornish accents than you can shake a big wooden fighting stick at. Join Gali, Devlin, Patrick and Matt as they take to the trees and relive the summer of Bryan Adams. All together now: ”Look in to my eyes…”
