It didn't impress critics and it underperformed at the box office (sinking plans for a sequel) but this version of Robin Hood isn't all bad. It's mainly the pacing - the movie feels long, and although many of the actors bring a lot to their roles, things never pick up the way you want them to. Let's face it, other than Disney's Robin Hood, Men in Tights and part of Prince of Thieves - it's hard to get Robin Hood right.

An archer in the army of Richard the Lionheart returns home and becomes the legendary Robin Hood. This movie was slow and really boring. 2010 was a fantastic year for movies and I thought this movie might be good but I was wrong really wrong.

Rating of
2/4 

Composes of a dreary pace, some over acting, laughable accents, lack of character development for an overloaded cast and a delirious plot that twists a classic and simple tale. Direction (coming from the ,am who directed Blade Runner, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, American Gangster, etc), acting (Hurt, Blanchett and Crowe in tow) and locations were brilliant. Action-packed but dry and not as entertaining from the director's previous works.

Robin Who?

This was the most expensive Robin Hood movie yet. So naturally, it's the worst one yet as well. On paper this sounded good and hell, the trailers were convincing enough to get me in a theater seat. Unfortunately it's a dull, ugly, joyless, and massively uneven affair that cannot decide whether it wants to be a historical epic or a swashbuckling adventure.
Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett both look bored; they've done these types of roles to death. The cast is wasted with the exceptions of the villains, played by Mark Strong and Oscar Isaac. These guys are having so much fun and are so interesting to watch, you wish the movie was about them instead.
Ironically, I do believe that was the original intent. See, Ridley Scott had planned a movie telling the story of Robin Hood from the Sher...

Robin Longstride

"Robin Hood" is not really focused upon the legend of the outlaw; it's more about the beginning of Robin Hood, tracing back his story, how he *became* an outlaw. I think this was a disappointment for a great many people who wanted to see Robin and his merry men robbing the rich and giving to the poor while dodging the sheriff of Nottingham.

The story opens with the military campaign between France and England who have been fighting one another since before the age of the dinosaurs. At the helm is Richard the Lionheart, back from the Crusades and fighting to take Normandy from his adversary King Philip of France. Richard falls in battle, failing to return to English soil. Robin a disillusioned soldier is looking for something to believe in a new cause if you will. He stumbles across a g...

"Robin Hood" by Yojimbo

An English archer returned from the crusades adopts the identity of a fallen nobleman and becomes embroiled in the prevention of a civil war to unite against a French invasion. Little did I know that Robin Hood was not in fact a fictional highwayman who lived in Sherwood forest, but actually the inventor of the Magna Carta who single-handedly repelled a French invasion. I feel positively educated. It's a shame the script of Robin Hood degenerated into theme park history absurdity because for the first half of the film it struck just the right balance of plausibility and adventure. Of course it takes Braveheart style liberties with history but it stayed just the right side of willing suspension and the likeable performances and gritty action sequences made for rousing medieval adventure. U...

Comparisons between roles that were decades apart is unwise. Sure, the mullets are out of fashion, but for it's day, Prince of Thieves was a great film. Just like Jack Nicholson's Joker and Heath Ledger's Joker...Both were great in the context of perspective films. Ridley Scott was not trying to duplicate Gladiator, but he admitted that his Robin Hood (formerly Nottingham) had the same intense atmosphere.

It all depends on two factors in order to have a chance of being almost as good as Gladiator.
  1. The musical score
  2. And if there is too much action
Gladitor was the perfect blend of action, drama, music, and story telling at its best. If Scott rushes it like he has since Gladiator, it will be average and a big let down!

I always preferred Men in Tights... seriously, you either love or hate Costner's version. I thought it was pretty good, even with lack of accent, but Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe together again - I'm thinking this version, though technically a Robin Hood prequel, will be much more entertaining.

So will this be better than the 90's favorite with Costner? I am not sure but if it is 3/4 as good as Gladiator it will blow it out of the way!
