"Because unlike some Robin Hoods, I can speak with an English accent!" Robin Hood, Men in Tights.
One thing's for sure - pretty much every incarnation of Robin Hood in cinematic history would get their butts kicked if they went toe-to-toe with M. Lynn's version. And hell, if Doctor Who can be a woman, why not Robin Hood?
So many familiar elements from the legendary story are there, including the beloved supporting characters Little John and Friar Tuck, the archery prowess, and of course the robbing from the rich to give to the poor. But M. Lynn has turned this story on its head, and made it as (if not more) enjoyable as any one to grace the silver screen (except the Disney animated version, that one still rocks).
If you want a fresh spin on a classic tale, then you'll love Noble Thief. They don't get much fresher than this!
