Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

Well, the battling Kevins are friends again. Director Kevin Reynolds and actor Kevin Costner have made three films together, and had several notorious battles--most memorably over the Waterworld debacle--yet they're together for a very enjoyable and congratulatory commentary track for this new edition of their film. Costner, as usual, is quite loose for the commentary and is even candid about his "dumb-ass accent." This new cut is 12 minutes longer, adding a few new scenes, mostly with Alan Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham, including a key plot twist. Another commentary track with Morgan Freeman, Christian Slater, and the two writer-producers is also fun, although the creator Pen Densham meanders into deep meanings about his script that the actioner never, thankfully, adopted. The second disc is a lot of fluff that will only intrigue the young, including interviews and a TV special hosted by Pierce Brosnan from 1991. There are extensive notes on the history of Robin Hood and a gallery of production photos and weapons. Best are the eight selections of Michael Kamen's stirring score recorded in Dolby 5.1. --Doug Thomas

Product Description

For the good of all men, and the love of one woman, he fought to uphold justice by breaking the law. In this richly-detailed, action-packed retelling of the legendary story, Robin Hood must battle the evil Sheriff of Nottingham not only to save King Richard the Lionhearted and England but also to save his love, the noble beauty Maid Marian.

Over the years, it seems that the Robin Hood saga has been a favorite of sorts for film makers to re-invent, manipulate, and showcase again and again. No doubt due to global appeal and the premise of a hero taking from the rich, giving to the poor, and fighting the good fight.
Of all the Robin Hood films ever produced, it's readily apparent that Prince of Thieves relies less on genuine historical accuracy and leans more toward Hollywood flair which still makes for an entertaining film. Despite using no English accent (which appears to grate on some reviewers for some reason), Kevin Costner presents himself well in the role of Robin Hood. Coupled with fine performances from Morgan Freeman, Alan Rickman, Christian Slater, and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, (to name just a few), the story moves at an exciting pace and hits the mark as a stand up adventure movie that doesn't disappoint.
As for the new 2 disc special edition release of this movie, it just got a whole lot better. Not having to flip the disc over any more to see the entire feature like in the first release, you now have a new digital transfer and a remastered DTS 5.1 soundtrack and both are outstanding. On disc 2 you have great bonus material enhancing the value and enjoyment even further. Included is a decent documentary on the making of Prince of Thieves, Bryan Adams performing his music video of '(Everything I do) I do it for you', an interactive mediaeval weapons gallery, cast and crew bios, production notes, interviews with cast and crew, and trailers and t.v. spots.
You don't really have to be a die-hard Robin Hood fan to enjoy this movie. The film has a few flaws and stretches the historical aspect somewhat but it plays out well with plenty of action, adventure, humor, and fun. This special edition release would be a good addition to any DVD collection and I recommend it to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let me straighten some things up.... August 3, 2000
Format:DVD
"Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" is a rolicking adventure ride that will please most people. If ya can't get past the accents, then miss out on a good movie.
Let me clear a few things up:
1. "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" was on a tight production schedule. There were three (count 'em, three) Robin Hood movies being produced at the same time, and the one to come out finished first would be the one released in theatres. One production gave up and backed out. That left two Robin Hood movies - one with Kevin Costner, and one with Patrick Bergen.
2. Because of the tight schedule, Kevin Costner's accent was dropped to be "dubbed over" in post production. They simply didn't have the time to worry about accents if they wanted to get the movie finished.
3. Filming complete, the dubbing was dropped because of lack of time and the movie was finished. "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" was released theatre-wide, whereas the Patrick Bergen version was slated for TV.
Now that I have the little niggling thing about accents straightened up, get passed it and watch the movie for what it was intended: pure entertainment.
There is plenty of humor - from Little John's river fighting antics and his wife's bantering, to the Sheriff of Nottingham's humorous frustrations ("why a spoon, cousin, why not an ax" - "Because it's dull, you twit, it will hurt more!"), the viewer is not disappointed. The entire cast was enjoyable to watch, and the costuming was superb.

1.0 out of 5 stars Deceptively re-released DVD December 10, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because the extended edition DVD/blu-ray was disappointing compared to the theatrical release, with key lines of expository dialogue being clumsily cut out, making the newly added footage nonsensical. However, although the packaging for this theatrical edition is new and advertises a new DVD, the DVD is clearly from the awful earlier release. The problems with the old release is that you are inexplicably forced to eject and flip the disc halfway through the film, which is also presented in the horrible non-anamorphic widescreen format- both of these limitations are almost unheard of. The new packaging in this release claims that it is an anamorphic format, and this is the first DVD out of thousands I've purchased that has ever brazenly lied about that. DO NOT BUY THIS DVD. Hope that a theatrical edition of the film is eventually released with a decent transfer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor blu-ray transfer October 19, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I love the movie, but this is just another Warner Brothers standard DVD transfer. Says 1080p HD on the case, but it is just barely better than original DVD. Not even close to being on par with newer blu-ray DVD's. Save your money and wait for a digitally remastered version in HD. Hang onto your old DVD, I didn't.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Big let down.... September 11, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A big fan of the theatrical release. I wish both versions of the movie were on the disc. Sometimes these movies are edited well from the start and that has been the case with this movie. It wears a little long and has some pacing issues that the original did not. Some of the edited scenes drastically effect the movie and I felt in a very negative way. I have the original version on DVD and will continue to watch it rather than this one. On top of that their is very little in extras on the bluray. Just some different commentaries. So its a lose lose for me. Its a shame too. I wanted the original film only in better quality.
