This was a great find for me because a) I love this movie, I used to watch it all the time when I was younger and b) I generally don't have a lot of money to spend on building a blu-ray collection, so a $10 movie (that's actually good) is always great! Also, I was very impressed with the speed of delivery. I ordered on a Wednesday and received it the following Monday (with no damage to the blu-ray case, which I have experienced before when getting blu-rays in the mail.)
This is the story I know! Great For the Whole Family Not a Lot of Blood. But fast Moving to watch. I say get it for your collection. SW
The transfer is awesome on this extended edition blu-ray version of robin hood: prince of thieves. it truly has more great scenes with the sheriff of nottingnam and it explains robin of loxleys crusades. a must have for a blu-ray collector
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.
This is a really great movie and it is great to see it in HD. It is also my favorite version of Robin Hood. This version is 12 minutes longer than the theatrical version due to additional scenes that was cut from the original version. This blu-ray plays the whole movie from beginning to end without having to flip from side A to side B like the DVD version does. This is a great product.
Been looking to get this on Blu-ray for awhile. One of my favorite movies.
