Entertaining and fast paced Robin Hood tale.
16 February 2016 | by MattyGibbsSee all my reviews

This is a surprisingly decent Robin Hood story. It quickly tells the story of how Robin Hood came to be. A wronged nobleman escapes to the forest and quickly gains a small army in order to gain revenge against his cousin.

The plot is thankfully easy to follow which isn't always the case with these films. It features the usual Robin Hood swordplay mixed with a good dose of humour. The fast pace and plenty of good sequences means that there are few dull spots and Barrie Ingham makes a good and charismatic Robin Hood and Peter Blythe is great as the evil and snivelling Roger de Courtenay.

As it's obviously not a big budget effort I thought this was a good effort and though no classic it's worth watching for old adventure film lovers.
