In 12th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power.
The battering ram used during the filming at the Bourne Wood in Surrey, which was nicknamed 'Rosie' by the film crew and is worth £60,000, was donated by Russell Crowe to a Scottish charity, the Clanranald Trust to be used for battle re-enactments at a fort named Duncarron, built in a forest near the Carron Reservoir in North Lanarkshire.
Once before I said goodbye to a man going to war. He never came back.
Robin Longstride: Ask me nicely.
Robin Longstride: I love you, Marion.
Robin and the troops arriving from Nottingham meet up with William Marshal and his troops at the White Horse in Uffington. This is northwest of London, approximately 160 miles (by modern driving routes) from Dungeness, where the French troops are landing. It's impossible that they would have arrived in the time depicted.
The first part of the end credits are in the same style as Ridley Scott's production company 'Scott Free Productions'.
On DVD and Blu-ray Disc, the 16-minutes longer "Director's Cut" contains slightly more violence and expanded battles and additional character development.
