Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves Full Movie
Download Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves Full Movie and it’s Hollywood’s 1991 Action, Adventure and Drama film directed by Kevin Reynolds. The story was great; Morgan Freeman blew me away and Kevin Costner was just sexy…or was he? Besides not having an English (any variation an English accent…he’s straight out of LA) when I re-watched this recently I realized this film really isn’t as great as I remember it. Freeman is still amazing to me and though I have problems with the character as written, it’s still well done for what he had to work with.
Alan Rickman is just plain freaking insane. Having watched a version with some added scenes I saw a completely different Sheriff. In the theatrical cut he’s devious and just plain power hungry. In the extended edition he’s just bat shit crazy. It was almost frustratingly weird. The theatrical cut makes him a decent villain; add in those extra scenes and he’s just a whiny little baby who is truly insane.
Kevin Reynolds’ Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves Robin of Locksley (Kevin Costner) has come back to England from the Crusades with Moorish protector Azeem (Morgan Freeman), only to find his father and estate destroyed by the Sheriff of Nottingham (Alan Rickman). Forced into Sherwood Forest, Robin comes across a band of warriors (merry men), including Little John (Nick Brimble) and Will Scarlet (Christian Slater), who need a leader to go up against the Sheriff’s devilish reign of power.
It must be said although Prince of Thieves is at times completely entertaining and compelling, Kevin Costner’s only positive surround the lead role is that he looks fairly athletic. I understand that it’s been noted before but how an actor of any worth can go into a role such as Robin Hood and not even attempt the English accent. Russell Crowe managed to keep a fairly consistent (although quite poor) English accent throughout the 2010 version, and the lack of any attempt just cuts down any believability in the role.
However, not all acting was poor throughout this film as Alan Rickman and Morgan Freeman carry this film. Alan Rickman’s over-the-top performance allows him to steal every scene with a performance that at times brings a certain amount of humor to a film that has the ability to be excellent but never gets any better than average.
Even with being littered with poor performances and with such slow, pedestrian direction from Kevin Reynolds; there are good action sequences to keep the audiences entertained. When Robin’s band of merry men launch their attack on the Sheriff of Nottingham, yet some of the action is just farcically unrealistic (EG being propelled over a wall), it is hugely entertaining and a marvelous spectacle. Rickman and a few good action sequences make this film entertaining, without them, the film would be un-watchable. So Download Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves Free Full Movie HD Video for PC and Mac.
