Strange plot and theme for a medieval hero such as Robin Hood. Heroic effort at coming up with such as story but it just falls flat. In this rendition of the legendary fable, Robin Hood (Connery) returns to England to meet with Marion (Hepburn) and soon realizes that he's just out of tune with the times; Marion is the cataclysm that makes him accept the final conclusion that he's all washed up, old, and without much fighting left in him: just enough breath for one final effort. The ending is ludicrous for a period obsessed with Christian values; their actions amounting to a cardinal sin with no offer of salvation. The film's high point is the great cast with Nicol Williamson (Merlin in Excalibur) playing Little John and Richard Harris playing Richard The Lion Hearted. Despite these qualities, the script is unimpressive and the dialogue is slow. The music seems to add to the slumber. Two old geezers reminiscing about the good old days; a real yawner. I find it doubtful that peoples of the 12th Century had even time to contemplate getting old; life back then being so nasty, brutish, and short, they usually died before thoughts of age ever crossed their minds. I wouldn't recommend owning this one. Rent it to satiate your curiosity and then,if you're still awake at the end, decide if it's worth owning.

This film includes two long-time favorites, Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn as Robin and Marian. A beautiful love story, albeit sad, it adheres to the legends written of Robin Hood. Definitely recommend a box of tissues when viewing this great movie.

This enjoyable film focuses on the later years of the legendary Robin Hood (Sean) and his lost love, Maid Marian(Audrey). Both are excellent in their roles as star-crossed lovers reunited with a substantial twist at the end. Director Richard Lester provides a dirty, realistic, if sometimes comical vision of the 12th Century. It is this humor that provides some of the realistic quality to this magical film. Battle scenes are brutal and bloody as would have been the case when two men are trying to butcher each other with swords, but there is no gratuitous bloodshed or extremely graphic violence. The interplay beween Little John (Nicol Williamson) and Robin and Marian is excellent. Robert Shaw plays a great Sheriff of Nottingham whose relationship with Robin is nothing like the Errol Flynn/Basil Rathbone original, adding an extra dimension to the film. I truly enjoyed this movie from an action standpoint as well as costuming and weapons. The score is both beautiful and compelling. Despite a few shortcomings it is a wonderful love story with excellent sword fighting. What more could enyone want?
