Product Description

12th Century England: It is a deadly time of dark tyranny, black magic and the outlaw archer known as Robin Hood. But when the Sheriff of Nottingham unleashes a winged monster upon the nearby town and woods to massacre Robin’s men and capture Maid Marian, hearts run cold with fear and streets red with blood. Before he can rob from the rich or give to the poor, can The Prince Of Thieves survive the demonic onslaught of a winged beast from another world? Katharine Isabelle co-stars in this chilling new take on the infamous hero from director Peter DeLuise, filled with valor, vengeance and nightmare creatures that take you behind the legend and BEYOND SHERWOOD FOREST.

The Prince of Thieves encounters sorcery and CGI dragons in this action-fantasy hybrid, which aired on the SyFy Channel. The dragon in question is really the enchanted form of a woman (Katherine Isabelle) from another dimension, and in her scaly form, she killed the father of young Robin Hood. Flash forward a couple of decades, and the grown Robin (Robin Dunne) suffers a serious hitch in his take-from-the-rich-give-to-the-poor arrangement, courtesy of the evil Prince John (David Richmond-Peck) and the even more wicked Sheriff of Nottingham (Julian Sands, who consumes the scenery with relish), both of whom use the lady/dragon against him and his Merry Men. It's a novel idea, but executed with dreary pacing by actor-turned-director Peter DeLuise, rickety special effects, and dreadful acting by all save Sands and Erica Durance (Smallville's Lois Lane) as an action-ready Maid Marian. The story of Robin Hood has been told numerous times before, and in most cases, better than this. The widescreen DVD includes an original TV trailer and a brief making-of featurette. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood for a new generation July 5, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My expectations were low for this film, but it was really very good.

Fair warning, if you only enjoy movies about legends and medieval settings that are 100% historically accurate then you are simply going to hate this movie.

Sorry, it cannot be helped.

Move along, move along, there is nothing to see here for you.

For those of you that enjoy a romp outside firmly bounded, scripted interpretations of legendary themes, press on!

"Beyond Sherwood Forest" is a play on the traditional Robin Hood tale, except that Robin's father is killed by Malcolm (played by Julian Sands) while the Sheriff and his men are out hunting a dragon.

It turns out that the dragon is a lycanthrope played by Katharine Isabelle. Malcolm captures the woman and keeps her imprisoned for thirteen years.

Julian Sands does a fantastic job as the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. What Sands does with a glance would take many actors three pages of dialogue. He comes off as both ruthless while still not entirely understanding the forces that he is using. (I will not spoil the movie, but his choice of an "insurance policy" from the dragon is top flight and makes sense.)

Robin Dunne does an entirely adequate job of playing Robin Hood. The story is a bit different than traditional versions. Robin is not a nobleman in this version; so, Robin does not have to have an underlying noble ethic or air. The local townspeople grow to hate Robin for the troubles that he brings on them from the royalty. This is utterly logical. I like it!

While not as odious as the rapping scenes from "a Knight's Tale," Erica Durance plays a strictly anachronistic Maid Marian.

3.0 out of 5 stars 12th Century "Sanctuary" January 28, 2010
I watched this on the SYFY Channel and wasn't expecting anything profound. I was correct in that assessment but I found in quite enjoyable nonetheless.
Although I didn't care for the killing off of Friar Tuck I thought it had its interesting takes on the Robin Hood mythos. Robin Dunne was adequate as Robin of Locksley and Erica Durance made an adventurous Marian.
I think a larger budget could have made the scenery more convincing but I understand in this day that money is tight.
Over all, i was satisfied with this made for TV straight to DVD movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Silly fun March 28, 2011
This SciFi Channel version of the Robin Hood tale is silly and cheesy, but fun nonetheless. My first thought while watching this movie was "Why?" However, I found myself stuck to the end. True blue to it's TV fantasy, B movie genre, the effects are cheesy, the dialogue is fluff and the story is utterly unbelievable. If you are looking for an evening of quality entertainment walk away, but for a mindless guilty pleasure, look no further. Shh I won't tell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old century heroism April 24, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Film of true entertainment. Even though this movie is on the preference of Robin Hood, the action and patriotism is performed with excellence. The storyline of the girl dragon bird and the forest was unbelievably noteworthy. I would refer this movie to all friends and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply delivers all I anticipated it would. December 22, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Beyond Sherwood Forest" is directed by Peter DeLuise (Sanctuary; SGU Stargate SGU; Stargate SG-1; Stargate Atlantis; Andromeda; etc) and was released as a made for TV film in 2009; starring Robin Dunne (Sanctuary, Cruel Intentions, Skulls II, Species III), Erica Durance (Smallville, The Butterfly Effect 2, House of the Dead), Bill Dow (Stargate SG-1, Legends of the Fall, Stargate Atlantis, Kyle XY), Julian Sands (The Killing Fields, Room With A View, The Girl With A Dragon Tattoo, and as the Doci in Stargate: Ark Of Truth), Katherine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps, Freddy vs. Jason, Insomnia, Ogre), Mark Gibbon (The Chronicles Of Riddick, The 6th Day, Smallville, Knights Of Bloodsteel, Stargate SG-1), Richard de Klerk (Repeaters, Stargate SG-1, Bang Bang You're Dead), David Palfly (Storm, House Of The Dead, Stargate SG-1, House Of The Dead), and others. It is a film about 1174 England and the familiar Robin Hood story where King Richard is away on the Holy Crusades while Robin, Marian, Little John, and Will Scarlet deal with Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham Castle from their own base camp in Sherwood forest - only this film's version has a dragon (hence, the Sci-Fi genre). The CGI special FX are superb. The two leading ladies are lovely, but no nudity unfortunately (even though suggestively indicated), and the other-worldly dark forest sequence with CGI were-lion-wolves are well done (even if not quite to the excellence of the dragon). A magical film without too heavy of a hand in the gore side of film-making, and yet it might be a little frightening for young viewers. You need to be a fan of dragons, a fan of the Robin Hood theme, and a fan of Sci-Fi genre mythological creatures and mythological beings who keep watch over ancient temples and mysterious covenants. It didn't hurt that I've seen half of this movie's cast in other films and like those other films too. (Wooden pitchfork in this film was only intended for agricultural use.)
