  • thanks for the heads up on this film. The cast sounds excellent. I am definitely looking forward to this one. How do you think it will compare to Prince of Thieves?

  • Not sure how it will compare. For some reason, I’m not expecting to like it as much as Prince of Thieves. Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman were excellent in that film. One of the Costner’s best in my opinion. That was the movie that really got me interested in the medieval period when I was younger.

  • I remember loving that movie as a kid, but I watched it again recently and I was surprised at the cheesy factor. I’ll admit that it was better than Costner’s worst flick – Waterworld. Holy cow…

  • I must admit, I hadn’t heard about this movie yet.

    I’m going to have to tell my daughter, she is a HUGE, I mean HUGE Robin Hood fan. She researches him and does historical presentations at local schools with ballads and songs.

    I hope they make the movie historical, but I already have my doubts with the released photo … really, that longbow looks Victorian … they would have been round (but tapered) in the 12th century.

  • Robert, I’m worried about the historical factor as well. I do hope they make it as accurate to the time period as possible. I haven’t studied Robin Hood in great detail, just read a few snippets from the ballads and such.

    From your daughter’s research, in what century would he most likely have existed, does she think? I know there are many competing theories out there, if Robin Hood actually existed at all. Much like the legend of King Arthur.
