Robin Hood, Douglas Fairbanks' biggest (though not necessarily best) production of the silent era, represents the first time that many familiar of the elements of the Robin Hood legend were presented on screen.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An epic silent version of the Robin Hood legend."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Douglas Fairbanks rocked!"
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Still impressive sets and stunts have kept this from getting stale."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online
"It's by far the best and most joyous Robin Hood movie ever made; beside Fairbanks, even Errol Flynn appears to be standing still."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"One of the great silent adventure films...and one of Doug's best."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"The lavish sets show such Allan Dwan enthusiams as waterworks (the moat), secret passages, multi-story architecture (the castle), elevators (the curtain Fairbanks slides)."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"Fairbanks is the most exuberantly athletic of Robin Hoods, for sheer physicality perhaps outdoing even Errol Flynn's definitive performance. Fairbanks's third swashbuckler… in some ways the ideal Fairbanks vehicle."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
