This was a good movie through to the end, though there is a person perceived as naked, though there are no specific "parts' shown. it has a lot of voience but that is ok.

A well done re-imaging of the Legend of Robin Hood. However I was uncomfortable with the attempted rape scene presented in a comical form. Rape or attempted rape is something that should never be laughed at.

Not new, but GREAT actors and plot.
Great commentaries.
About Catholic church of the time, includes both bad and good men.

The character who really shined in this movie was the Sheriff of Nottingham, played by the late great Alan Rickman.

This is the first version of Robin Hood that I saw on the big screen. And still a favorite of mine. So romantic and exciting! Kevin Costner in his prime. Love it!

A classic must see. One of Costner's best work, and still stands up with time.

Unforgettable. Macabre, but just a little funny.
It seems about as realistic a depiction as any Robin Hood I've seen so far, though I don't suppose the bar has been set too high.

TO ULTIMATE REVIEWER: They DO NOT disrespect the Catholic Church! They disrespect those who used the Catholic Church to grow fat and rich - the ones who truly disrespected the Catholic Church! Please read THEY WALKED A CROOKED MILE for the terrible abuse that tarnished the Catholic Church and led to the prejudice and stereotyping that haunt the Church (and many religions) to this day. TO THE REST: This Is NOT Meant To Be A History Lesson! IT `S MEANT TO BE A SATURDAY AFTERNOON ADVENTURE! PERIOD! Don`t watch it for Shakespearean excellence or historical accuracy. WATCH IT FOR ALAN RICKMAN`S NO-HOLDS-BARRED, FREE-ADLIBBING PORTRAYAL THAT EARNED THE FIRST RAVE REVIEW I EVER HEARD ROGER EBERT BESTOW! NOTE: This was made at a time when `racial mending` and `political correctness` went overboard, thus dictating Robin Hood (the White Dude) had to be especially dumb so that the character Morgan Freeman played (the Black Dude created out of whole cloth for the occasion) would look especially clever and heroic (and, with all due respect, the Arabic Empires of the East WERE so far ahead of Europe in terms of the healing arts, geography, the use of lenses, astronomy, etc, the exchanges between Robin Hood and the Moor make perfect sense!) Anyway, that`s my opinion and I`m stuck with it!

One of Kevin Costner's BEST performances,not as good as Dances with Wolves though.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Claustrophobic close-ups of terrified men and an evil witch. Men's hands tied to an anvil and then chopped of by a flaming sword. Men chained in a dark dungeon. Attempted murder of children. Attempted rape at end of movie.
