Princess of Thieves is an adventurous action-packed movie that was released in the year 2001. It is a family-friendly movie that features a cast of talented actors and actresses including Hannah Cresswell, David Barrass, Malcolm McDowell, and Keira Knightley. The story begins with Robin Hood's daughter Gwyn, played by Keira Knightley, who has grown up with learning endless archery skills and agility from her father. Gwyn aspires to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a thief, all while keeping her identity as the daughter of the legendary Robin Hood a secret. Gwyn's mother, Maid Marian, was imprisoned by Prince John and is held captive in the castle of Nottingham.

Gwyn's father Robin Hood has long ago passed, leaving her guardianship to her much older and steadfastly loyal partner Froderick, played by David Barrass, who has become more like a father figure and mentor to Gwyn. Gwyn soon finds out about her mother's predicament and decides to rescue her no matter what the consequences may be.

In order to achieve her goal, Gwyn decides to pose as a boy and join a group of outlaws. While with them, she discovers the truth behind the disappearance of her father's fabled bow–which may have been stolen by Prince John– and eventually reveals her true identity to the outlaws.

Together with the outlaws, Gwyn plans to break into Nottingham castle to rescue her mother, and along the way, they uncover a sinister plot by Prince John to take the throne from the beloved King Richard.

Malcolm McDowell plays the role of Prince John, who is the movie's main antagonist. He does a great job of portraying a power-hungry ruler who is willing to do anything to achieve his goals, including torture and imprison the innocent.

As they continue their journey, Gwyn and her allies face numerous dangers and obstacles but eventually succeed in rescuing Maid Marian. They also discover the true reason behind Robin Hood's disappearance and what happened to his fabled bow.

The movie's climax highlights an epic battle between Gwyn and Prince John, which is nothing less than thrilling. Gwyn fights Prince John to protect her mother and the sanctuary of the outlaws' forest, culminating in a twist that is both heartwarming and unexpected.

The action scenes in the movie are skillfully executed, and the cinematography is exceptional with beautiful landscapes and well-executed camera work that complements the story's adventurous nature.

Princess of Thieves is a family-friendly, action-packed adventure movie that will captivate audiences of all ages. The movie's strong messages of bravery and standing up for what you believe in are central themes that leave a lasting impact. Keira Knightley's portrayal of Gwyn is remarkable, and she brings a lot of charisma and energy to the role, making her an inspiring female lead character.

In summary, Princess of Thieves is a must-watch for anyone who enjoys an action-packed adventure. It's a well-acted and well-directed movie that will transport you back to medieval times and keep you entertained to the end.
