Kevin Costner as Robin Hood

This is English courage

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves generally gets a drudging in the critical community. On a rewatch however, there’s some good stuff here …

  • It’s filmed in some parallel universe where Christian Slater gets higher billing than Alan Rickman
  • Morgan Freeman is smokin’ hot with a HUGE scimitar
  • Robin’s dad is played by Brian Blessed AND he takes on the┬ámedieval KKK
  • Alan Rickman plays a light hearted Hans Gruber with a witchy sidekick!
  • That blood egg trick? STILL COOL!
  • Where’s my “Mary Elizabeth Master-NINJA” spin off?
  • The “kicked in the balls” lip curl!
  • Moorish telescope technology!
  • The Little John fight is fun, but it’s mostly a reminder to rewatch this
  • “I’m going to cut your heart out with a spoon!”

… and that’s as far as I got before I had to go to sleep.
