Well, the battling Kevins are friends again. Director Kevin Reynolds and actor Kevin Costner have made three films together, and had several notorious battles--most memorably over the Waterworld debacle--yet they're together for a very enjoyable and congratulatory commentary track for this new edition of their film. Costner, as usual, is quite loose for the commentary and is even candid about his "dumb-ass accent." This new cut is 12 minutes longer, adding a few new scenes, mostly with Alan Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham, including a key plot twist. Another commentary track with Morgan Freeman, Christian Slater, and the two writer-producers is also fun, although the creator Pen Densham meanders into deep meanings about his script that the actioner never, thankfully, adopted. The second disc is a lot of fluff that will only intrigue the young, including interviews and a TV special hosted by Pierce Brosnan from 1991. There are extensive notes on the history of Robin Hood and a gallery of production photos and weapons. Best are the eight selections of Michael Kamen's stirring score recorded in Dolby 5.1. --Doug Thomas
