After Maid Marian is kidnapped by the Sheriff of Nottingham, Robin Hood must get a band of men together in order to save her. Many are reluctant, given that they are massively outnumbered by the Sheriff's forces - but those that do join Robin will stop at nothing to defeat the bloodthirsty tyrant. Together, they hatch an audacious plan to penetrate the depths of the Sheriff's castle and reclaim Robin’s true love.

We like it because:

Thrilling swordplay, brutal action and gripping intrigue make this fresh take on Robin Hood a must-watch for fans of Game of Thrones and Vikings, as well as those with a taste for action classics like Die Hard and The Raid.

Ben Freeman (a favourite of Emmerdale fans) makes a terrific Robin Hood - a reckless, brave hero going up against insurmountable odds. James Oliver Wheatley, soon be seen in the smash hit TV series Vikings, is a standout as the villainous and eminently hissable Sheriff of Nottingham, while screen legend and star of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves Brian Blessed steals the show in the role of Friar Tuck.

Newcomer Marie Everett is a Maid Marian like you’ve never seen, and very handy with a sword. Kristian Nairn (famous as Hodor from Game of Thrones) also appears, along with Torchwood’s Gareth David-Lloyd as ace warrior Green.

Beautifully filmed, with a stirring score, and jam-packed with brilliantly choreographed fight scenes, ROBIN HOOD: THE REBELLION is a thrilling slice of escapist entertainment that’ll have you rooting for Robin and his merry marauders.
