Dove Review

Robin Hood, his merry men and Maid Marion embark on a daring adventure in this action-packed film set in classic old England. King Richard is at war and the residents of Nottingham do not fare well at the hands of a greedy sheriff who forces all the residents to pay unfair taxes and give their money to him.

Brave Robin Hood and his loyal band of swashbuckling cohorts are determined to rescue Nottingham from the dastardly deeds of a power-hungry sheriff. Bows and arrows abound as they fight for what is right. Courage is not in short supply—they are determined to right wrongs imposed upon the people of the region while their beloved King Richard is away. His fate and return are uncertain, and fear abounds among his subjects.

The classic trope of good triumphing over evil is a story worth telling in any setting and Robin Hood is no exception. Children and their families will delight in the adventure of Robin Hood; however, parents of young children are advised that this story is set in medieval times with intense sword fighting, dungeons and the implied torture of the captured. Strong values are emphasized throughout this film: bravery, courage in adversity, commitment to a worthy cause, and strong loyalty. We are pleased to award this film the Dove Family Approved Seal for viewers of all ages.
