VERDICT – 3/5

 

 

PROS –
1) Castle-siege battle sequence – uncanny similarity to the Battle of Helm’s Deep.

3) Presence of RobinHood as a minor character.
4) Elizabeth Taylor as Rebecca – mesmerizing beauty

 

 

CONS –

QUOTE –
“King Richard the Lionhearted: Before me kneels a nation divided – rise as one man, and that one, for England!”
