Notable for being the only major film about Robin Hood to [[spoiler:portray his betrayal and death as found in the medieval ballad tradition.]] It is also unusual for its portrayal of King Richard as brutal and bloodthirsty, when he usualy gains the reputation of a Hero against his corrupt brother, who here seems relatively soft by comparison.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the {{Swashbuckler}} genre and the RobinHood myth in particular.



* {{Flynning}}: Averted. As in Lester's previous ''Three Musketeers'' films, the swordplay is rough, bloody and clearly exhausting.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenPedestal: King Richard to Robin. The look on Robin's face as Richard dies, raving and violent, shows how far the king has fallen in his esteem since the glory days of their youth.

* BrokenPedestal: King Richard for Robin. The look on Robin's face during Richard's death scene says it all.



* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the {{Swashbuckler}} and the RobinHood myth in general. The film is bittersweet in tone and focuses the physical and emotional cost of Robin's heroics.
