Reviews Of Movie:
I saw “The Prince of Thieves” just two days ago and it’s one of the greatest films that has ever been produced. Despite the fact that the cast faced many challenges when producing the film.
Robin from Locksley (Kevin Costner) returns to England from his crusades an Maori fighter Azeem (outstanding Morgan Freeman) and discovers that the devilish sheriff from Nottingham (superb Alan Rickman) has taken over his father’s territories. Then, from that point on, there’s the battle to change the course of the sheriff’s wrath in Nottingham. Robin turns into Hood and is fighting to bring good times to the people in the way they merit it.
There’s a little of it all in this film. There’s adventure and excitement and romance, as well as humor, action. Everything you could want from this great, entertaining film! If you enjoyed “The Adventures of Robin Hood” with the voice of Errol Flynn, you’ll be enthralled by this timeless tale about the man who stole money from the wealthy and then gave it to the less fortunate!
The production of the film was not easy from the beginning. The producers faced some challenges in securing a competent director for complete the task. The production manager as well as the other department heads were hired prior to the director was hired. There was a lot of pressure to finish “Prince of Thieves” because there were two other Robin Hood pictures coming. It was just like an athletic race. Then , a man named Kevin Reynolds was hired to direct. The team that was producing the film was lacking a an actor to take on the role of Robin. Other important roles Morgan Freeman, Alan Rickman and Christian Slater were already in the role. Robin Wright was replaced with Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio to play Maid Marian because of Wright’s pregnancy. Then was Kevin Costner. Kevin Costner only signed up for the role because of Kevin Reynolds. After having cast everyone, the team faced the issue of not having enough time. There were also some tension among Costner Reynolds and Costner. Reynolds. The two had a disagreements when the film was released in 1991. It was able to grab a whopping 25 million dollars during the first weekend, and would later earn 390 million dollars around the world. This is not bad, if the film did not have a bad review and issues behind it.
Evidently, Costner and Reynolds were able to let their hatred go, as later, they joined forces for the failure “Waterworld” which was by the way (1995) probably the most costly film ever! (Whopping $175,000,000 dollars was spent)
Although the film may contain several of the worst shocking errors in filmmaking, it doesn’t affect the final product. If Robin’s hair changes dry, then wet, and then back to dry it doesn’t reflect the true essence of this wonderful historical film. It’s worth waiting for to see the final scene in which the legendary Sean Connery makes an appearance as King Richard the Lionheart! (Connery gave his 400,000 dollars cost to charity)
The legendary and unstoppable song “Everything I Do (I Do It For You) by Bryan Adams is the best film theme song ever recorded in the history of filmmaking!
