ComingSoon: The best way to describe this movie is "Robin Hood Begins." In fact, the final text on the screen is "And the legend begins" (or something like it). Rather than being a typical Robin Hood movie showing Merry Men stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, we see all the events leading up to putting Robin in that situation. We see the end of the Crusades, Robin returning to England under the guise of a knight, Robin going to Nottingham, etc. All the elements like Prince John, Friar Tuck, Will Scarlet, Little John, the Sheriff of Nottingham, and others are here, just in their earlier incarnations.
