A war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown.
Shooting for this film was postponed so that Taron Egerton could film Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) first. The director wanted Taron Egerton as Robin Hood so much that he decided to postpone filming so that he could still play the title character.
You call that a disguise?
Robin of Loxley: Well it fooled everybody else!
In the trailer we see Robin Hood shooting guards with his bow in the rain. In reality one can not use bows when the string is wet, as they loose elasticity. The bow is also a composite bow, meaning layers of wood held together by glue and string. Medieval glue would come undone in rain, rendering the bow utterly useless.
In South Africa the film was edited in theaters for a 13 rating (after the uncut version was classified 16). The film was later released on uncut on DVD with a 13 rating as the violence was deemed to have less impact outside of a theatrical context.
