The Adventures of Robin Hood

Who doesn't love an adventure? Most adventure movies today are a tad flimsy, but older one weren't so.

Now what I said in the opening paragraph implies that I'm against today's movies. Well, yes and no. Yes because they lack originality way too much; no because a few gems shine out. Anyway, back to that review.

I've seen interpretations of him (The Princess Bride, My Favorite Year), but I hadn't seen the real McCoy in action. Errol Flynn was definitely the right man to play Robin Hood. He has the correct amount of wit and charisma for the role.

The Adventures of Robin Hood has this certain zest that wows people when they first see it. That can definitely apply to me when I saw it. It's an excellent movie that's great for all ages.

My Rating: *****


  1. Flynn is such a charismatic actor. Not the *best* but irreplaceable all the same.

  2. I think this is only 'Robin Hood' version one needs to watch! So much fun!

  3. I absolutely love this movie. I can watch it over and over without fail.


Comments are appreciated. More so if they are appropriate.
