      TIME Magazine If prankish Fairbanks was a man's Robin Hood, handsome, romantic Flynn performs for everybody else. Apr 24, 2009 Full Review Variety Staff Variety It is cinematic pageantry at its best, a highly imaginative telling of folklore in all the hues of Technicolor. Jun 10, 2008 Full Review Empire Magazine Errol Flynn buckles his swashes in this classic historical adventure. Rated: 5/5 Oct 16, 2007 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation What a wonder this must have been to the Depression Era moviegoers who first saw it. Rated: 4/4 Dec 25, 2023 Full Review Olly Richards Sunday Times (UK) Yet see beyond the tights and the (glorious) Technicolor and this is still a supremely entertaining adventure with some sword fights that rival any fight sequence... Sep 13, 2022 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault A masterful, dazzling adventure-comedy. Rated: A+ Aug 30, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Michael S Must see classic movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/18/23 Full Review A B Still fantastic. Sadly, every time Hollywood has tried to remake this classic they have failed miserably. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/19/23 Full Review Olivia Y Just one of the best films of all time. If you don't enjoy this then you're a miserable git. Nothing to dislike as it does exactly what it says on the tin, marvellous pop corn entertainment start to finish. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/30/23 Full Review Kit S This is my absolute favorite movie of all time. And if Errol Flynn's charm can make a mediocre movie with cheesy script good, imagine what it's like with a whole bunch of talented actors! Such a good movie in every way. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/03/23 Full Review TheFilmReviewer 1 Under the expertise of Michael Curtiz, Robin Hood is a masterfully done classic with beautiful sets, charming leads, and a story which can't be beat. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/02/23 Full Review jelisije j The classic Robin Hood story is told in this surprisingly not outdated old school movie that still holds up to this date.
