Robin Hood: Prince of Theives

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
-While away fighting the Turks, Robin of Locksley returns home to England to find his father has been murdered by the Sheriff of Nottingham. He and a Moor, Azeem stay together because Azeem wants to pay him back for saving his life. He goes to his childhood friend, Maid Marian, for help. He escapes into the forest where villagers are living like Vikings to avoid paying a high tax to the Sheriff. He becomes the leader of this village, teaching the people to shoot weapons, build things and survive.

-Kevin Costner: Robin Hood
