“It is strange how many people damn the Disney version of u0026quot;Robin Hoodu0026quot; for rough and repetitious animation, one-dimensional characters, and weak pacing. After all, A LOT of animated films suffer from this syndrome, even u0026quot;landmarku0026quot; productions like u0026quot;Anastasiau0026quot; and u0026quot;Shrek.u0026quot; The characters are stereotypes, but they act believably: Prince John is silly, but with a truly evil undercurrent (u0026quot;Squeeze every last drop out of those insolent…musical…peasants.u0026quot;), the Sheriff is deliciously nasty (u0026quot;Upsy-daisyu0026quot;), and Robin Hood is very affable. The music is, quite simply, fantastic. u0026quot;Not in Nottinghamu0026quot; is easily the best Disney song ever (barring u0026quot;When She Loved Meu0026quot; in Toy Story 2), the opening theme and song are catchy and appropriate for the movieu0026#39;s tone, and the movieu0026#39;s action scenes are clever, chaotic, and action-packed but not gory. This is a movie you can show your kids without being embarrassed upon seeing that the movie is one long commercial for action figures and plush toys.”
