What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is the 1991 blockbuster movie in which Kevin Costner plays the mythical medieval hero known for stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. Medieval graphic violence dominates this film, and that there are some particularly gory moments. The film opens with a painful torture scene in which a man's arm is chopped off with a machete, and later a man is burned to death. A man knifes his unsuspecting cousin, an illegitimate (and angry) half-brother appears, a painful childbirth scene (implied caesarian), a hanging, villages are destroyed, innocent children are threatened, explosions, a beloved character dies, and one nearly drowns. There is also an attempted rape, and a scary, creepy witch. "F--k" is used on one occasion, as well as some references to sex, and jokes centered on male genitalia. There is brief male nudity (buttocks) when Robin Hood emerges from skinny-dipping in a lake.
