Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
In this essay I am to look at the techniques used by the producers of the award winning film "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" to try to interpret and present the legend of Robin Hood in a way that is relevant and interesting to a modern audience. I will deal with: how the 12th Century was created, the Actors Performance, How Sympathy is created, the order of events, the use of suspense, the use of cameras to create special effects, the use of sound, use of flashback and I shall also give a personal view on the effect that the film had on me.
The film has been modified from the traditional tales of Robin Hood to suit a modern audience. The film starts in the less than traditional setting of a Turkish Jail in the late 12th Century. Robin of Locksley (Kevin Costner) has been captured whilst on the crusades. The scene is frantic and dark. People are shouting. Robin escapes. While he is escaping, he tries to free other people from the jail. He managers to free a Moor named Azeem
