Shocked

I wonder what those below thought as it hurtled towards them.


Is that our Amazon delivery?

A 1920s view of future war.

The infantry are almost useless, tanks rule the battlefield. The only things tanks fear are the artillery which are guided by aeroplanes, so the battlefield is covered in a generated fog.
Helicopters are used to blow away the fog and search for tanks ...

It's an interesting view of how future war was viewed in the 1920s, and a pleasant enough way to spend an hour.

Amazing story - who dares, wins.

This made me think of the possible implementation of parachute infantry in the 15th century, suggested by this “hold my beer” moment:

You are right, Steve - a movie that I have totally erased from my mind! (I liked the theme music).

If you're going to erase a movie, Prince of Thieves isn't a bad place to start.
Though credit for some excellent cameos (Blessed, Connery) and top quality scene stealing form Alan Rickman.

I was spoiled at a very early age by Errol Flynn and Richard Green, Costner simply couldn’t pull it off. Much like Tony Curtis in “The Black Shield of Falworth” (although I liked the book and still occasionally watch the movie).
You are right about the cameos, outstanding. The slow reveal of Rickman as the Sheriff whose face at the time was that of Hans Gruber and the surprise of Connery (the last remembered Robin) as Richard were both brilliantly staged.

"Robin and Marion" is a great film, and I have a great affection for the Errol Flynn film, and Richard Greene was very British.

I did like the mystical '80's versions with Michael Praed (and later Jason Connery).

The BBC TV series was pants, the Russell Crowe version was poor (far too political) and the 2018 film with Taron Egerton (who I liked in the Kingsman films) was awful beyond belief.
