The plot line of this Robin Hood was nonsensical. Costner failed to hold true to the story of Robin Hood handed down by tradition from earlier times and popularly accepted as historical. For example what was the purpose of Morgan Freeman's role as a philosophizing Moor? What was Robin Hood doing in a prison far removed from England? Also, the stone barrier that Robin and Freeman walked past when returning to England was erected during Roman Times. The barrier was erected centuries after the period of the Robin Hood myth. Overall, a sad interpretation of the Robin Hood legend.
However, adding Prince of Thieves to the title may distance the movie from the original Robin Hood story and avoid legend,fable,and myth accuracy issues.
In conclusion, I prefer the triditional Robin Hood movies starring E. Flynn and Russell Crowe.
The blu-ray picture quality was very good.
