Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Even though the film was a return to form for Errol Flynn, Adventures of Don Juan marked the end of an era for both the actor and Warner Bros. Rated: 4/5 Mar 13, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Adventures of Don Juan allowed an older Errol Flynn to swash with buckler in hand one final time for Warner Bros. Rated: 3/4 Jul 23, 2022 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Though not as exciting as Robin Hood and other Flynn swashbuckling adventures, Vincent Sherman's version still boasts high production values, particularly lush cinematography and art direction, stirring Max Steiner score, and good stuntwork.

Mark A Tyrone Power in another swashbuckler. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/20/22 Full Review Boneyard L This is another Errol Flynn adventure movie, and holds up about as well as you'd expect. It's a sweeping adventure with swordplay, romance, and a comical grin. The film's story is much more sluggish than its peers, ending up with minimal swashbuckling and rope-swinging and filling the gaps with obvious and dry intrigue. You could do a whole lot worse than this, but it pales in comparison to Robin Hood and Captain Blood. Closest comparison: It's like The Adventures of Robin Hood by way of Captain Blood. Setting: Globetrotting Adventure Plot: Romantic Adventure Tone: Comedy Adventure Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/09/20 Full Review kevin w Ten years after Errol Flynn and Alan Hale put on the tights for The Adventures of Robin Hood, Warner Brothers have them re-teamed in an attempt to do it all over again. No, not a reboot, or a re-do, but it might as well should be. Errol is up for it too, doing his damn-est to hide that those years have gone by, and the studio helps all that it can, with better-than-living-color, sumptuous costuming, and out-of-your-mind sets (not to mention a familiar sounding musical score - where have I heard that before, hmmm?). But. It's a different director, eh, and different writers. Lightning does not strike twice in this case, but not for lack of trying. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The best movie score ever composed! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Overstuffed preposterousness with Errol just beginning to fray around the edges is still a feast for the eyes. Ultra lush production values with eye popping costumes, baroque set pieces, the ever reliable Warners stock company and of course a sword fight or two. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review s r A run of the mill Flynn flick. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
