Review of Robin and Marian

Not a bad film. Not great either. Connery and Hepburn are fine. There is a great supporting cast of Robert Shaw, Nicol Williamson, Denholm Elliott, Ian Holm, Ronnie Barker (one half of the Two Ronnies) but the trouble is we see soooooo little of them. I don't think Barker had more than 2 words to say! And to have the great talent of Ian Holm wasted on a less than 5 minute seen was criminal. Richard Harris stands out as the villainous Richard the Lion-Heart and has some great dialogue. Its a tad slow in parts but the battle between Robin and the Sheriff is worth seeing as is the final seen, which is very touching. (aided by Connery's performance). Interesteringly it was not Connery's only apperance in a Robin Hood film. He also had a speaking cameo as King Richard in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves starring Kevin Costner as Robin.(although Costner kept his American accent!) I prefer Prince of Thieves to this version but I prefer Connery to Costner in the main part.
All in all good fun but could have been a lot better.
