The Last of Robin Hood

Drama . Biography . Romance

Errol Flynn, the swashbuckling Hollywood star and notorious ladies man, flouted convention all his life, but never more brazenly than in his last years when, swimming in vodka and unwilling to face his mortality, he undertook a liaison with an aspiring actress, Beverly Aadland. The two had a high-flying affair that spanned the globe and was enabled by the girl's fame-obsessed mother, Florence. It all came crashing to an end in October 1959, when events forced the relationship into the open, sparking an avalanche of publicity castigating Beverly and her mother - which only fed Florence's need to stay in the spotlight.

More Info:
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    It's Kline who anchors the movie, swan-diving into Flynn's complexities without making excuses for him.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    It lands just this side of camp, with a perfectly cast Kevin Kline hamming it up as the aging bounder Flynn, and Susan Sarandon really hamming it up.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Dashing, handsome and self-deprecating, Kevin Kline was born to play Errol Flynn.

    New York Post Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The film is too wan and distanced to sweep you up, but it holds you.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Kline sinks his old smoothie teeth into the part of Flynn, but is careful not to draw blood too easily. The man’s pathetic nature, after all, doesn’t spring from his movies. (Flynn worked right up to his death, in 1959.) It’s deeper than that, but also more shallow. Walking that knife’s edge is a trick. Kline finds exactly the right path.

  • David Lewis

    This is a film that starts out promisingly and finishes with an effective epilogue. In between, there are some interesting bits - including a scene in which Errol Flynn tries to snag a big-time role in "Lolita." But outlandish as that moment might sound, it's not. Everything here, in fact, is just a tad too respectful.

  • Michael Phillips

    Kline took on Douglas Fairbanks in Richard Attenborough's "Chaplin" and Cole Porter in Irwin Winkler's "De-Lovely"; he's the go-to biopic ace for roles requiring some fizz, a certain droll elevation and hair parted and slicked-back just so.

  • Betsy Sharkey

    Instead of a cautionary tale, they've looked at Flynn's life through rose-colored glasses.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    The Last of Robin Hood, written and directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, is often pallid and thin.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Writers and directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland have crafted a solid script... Holding the enterprise back, however, is a terribly restrained directorial approach and academic visual style that prevent the lubricious story from truly coming to life.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    The script represents a too-tame middle ground, which gives the unfortunate impression that perhaps the filmmakers want us to empathize with this icky romance.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    The story comes to feel mild (and incomplete) in its tempered nostalgia.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    Directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland (The Fluffer, Quinceañera) do their best to avoid sensationalism, but age difference and statutory rape are the only factors that make the story remotely interesting.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Vadim Rizov

    On the sliding scale of low expectations associated with the “I (may or may not have) slept with a famous person” biopic genre, Robin Hood is more smoothly professional and tolerable than the lowly likes of "My Week With Marilyn" or the JFK-adultery-soap opera "An American Affair."

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The movie veers between disapproval, farce and something uncomfortably close to envy, with a trio of game performances barely holding things together.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Kevin Kline makes a terrific Errol Flynn. He just picked the wrong movie to prove it.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The Last of Robin Hood plays like a laboratory control experiment gone wrong: What would happen if you made a movie with a great cast and terrible everything else?

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The entire affair feels malnourished, under-rehearsed and starved of energy.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    Ultimately the movie feels like an empty exercise. Sure, it’s a cautionary tale about the pitfalls of fame. But when the one figure most worthy of our sympathy is nothing more than a beautiful blonde robot, what’s the point?

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Louis Black

    This film slips and sloshes around in such ways that you really can't figure out its take on the unfolding and ill-fated story.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    The period details are unconvincing, the cinematography is flat, and the performances are surprisingly one note considering the talent involved.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    The problem — and wow, it's a big one — is that none of these actors have material firm enough to shape into a bona fide performance. Full Review
