Detailing the Sexual Escapades of a Very, Very, Bad Man

Probably even too much for adults, let alone children of any age. Portrays Errol Flynn (most likely accurately) as an out of control animal who has an insatiable sexual appetite. Insatiable, and perhaps more importantly, he makes absolutely no efforts to try and curb it responsibly. Anyone attending this movie will be exposed to a statutory rape of a 15 year old girl by a 48 year old Errol Flynn, irresponsible, unloving, and selfish sexual activity, nudity, frequent disrespectful talk of sexuality, frequent profanity and crude language, alcohol abuse and illegal drug use. There is good reason this is rated R.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

For a story rife with scandal, THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD is curiously lacking in energy. Scenes plod along from one to the next, bereft of tension or momentum. It's a shame, especially for Sarandon, who delivers yet another strong, interesting characterization of a compelling, deeply flawed woman. She can do little wrong. Too bad the film as a whole doesn't live up to her performance.

Which brings us to another issue: chemistry. Or the lack thereof between Fanning and Kline (whose portrayal of Flynn is, as is his usual, excellent, if a little removed). We need to understand what kept, not just brought, Errol and Beverly together. But as it stands, we're left to puzzle out the attraction (if any), given the serious lack of heat.
