Robin Hood (Richard Greene), on the run from the Sheriff of Nottingham (Peter Cushing) as usual and trying to court Lady Marian (Sarah Branch) while at it, makes the acquaintance of the Earl of Newark (Richard Pasco), who wants to hire him as assassin, yet refuses to tell him who he has to kill. Being a bit on the curious side, Robin tags along, until he finds out that the Earl is friends with the Sheriff, upon which he hightails it, naturally. Eventually, Robin finds out that his supposed victim was the Lord Chancellor (Jack Gwillim) himself, who's also the Archbishop of Canterbury and one of the few righteous politicians in the country. Robin and his men rush to his rescue, but find all of the Chancellor's men slaughtered, and he has only survived because he has found refuge in a nearby convent.

The Sheriff is not pleased with the way things have turned out and tells Newark, who's in his employ, so in no uncertain terms - and is killed by Newark's own son (Oliver Reed) for that. Then Newark and his men manage to bribe their way into the convent to take matters into their own hands, but Robin and men have already found their way in as well, dressed up as monks, and now guard the Lord Chancellor with their own lives - however, it's the Chancellor who ultimately has to fight, defeat and kill Newark himself in a duel.


Though filmed with an entirely different cast (apart from Richard Greene of course), this movie feels like a continuation of the series The Adventures of Robin Hood inasmuch as it tells not the larger-than-life tale of its lead character (like so many other Robin Hood big screen adaptations but merely some episode in the life of Robin and his merry men that starts with no origins-story but has the characters well-established, and ends with tieing up nothing more than the story at hand, as if another adventure with Robin would follow the very next week.

All of this though doesn't necessarily mean Sword of Sherwood Forest is a bad film ... but in this case, the movie is just that nevertheless, a very boring adventure movie that seriously lacks in pacing, features next to no proper action scenes and those it does feature are unexciting, and it shows that while director Terence Fisher, who by the way has directed several episodes of The Adventures of Robin Hood, was a master of horror and atmosphere, was more a fish out of water when it came to swashbuckling entertainment.
