I think "Robin Hood", and this movie is the first to come to mind. Really trully this is one of my all-time favourite movies, even if Kevin Reynolds would go on to do a much better job with The Count of Monte Cristo. Did that movie have Alan Rickman at his pantomime best? No. Did it have Morgan Freeman's excellent portrayal of Azeem? No. Did it have moments of light-hearted, feel-good swashbuckling derring-do where you were certain the good guys would eventually prevail? No, no, no! I'll admit the chemistry is lacking between the romantic leads, and that Chritian Slater's Will Scarlet doesn't have much to do at all, but the entertainment factor is still high. As for the blu-ray, sound and picture do benefit immensely from the new format (hear that black powder explode at the end!), but they do lag behind the very best examples. Still, a marked improvement over lesser formats.
Region A - Includes most North, Central and South American countries and South-east Asian countries including the Republic of China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Japan and Korea.
