Excerpt: 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.
Summary: 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.
Summary: 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.
Excerpt: The negative reviews about this film crack me up, but we are all entitled to our own opinion. If you enjoy this kind of genre and like the actors involved you will not be disappointed. I wish this film had done better box office since I would have loved to have seen a sequel. The idea of doing a big screen version of a Robin Hood origin story was a great one! I loved this movie and it has held up well on repeat viewings. I highly recommend the directors cut.
Summary: I loved this movie. I wish that there had been more battle scenes in this movie, but it was still amazing to watch. I was glad to see one of my favorite stories of all time to be told in a historical plausible way and to be staring two of my most favorite actors Russel Crowe and Cate Blanchett. I highly recommend this.
Excerpt: "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.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: I can't understand anyone's bad opinion of this obviously well made film. I must admit that it does borrow heavily from many blockbuster movies but what are movies about? Entertainment! Extremely well cast and edited - looking forward to watching this again.
Excerpt: The tale of Robin Hood is a legend that is closely tied to actual historical events. Its central theme of the common man rising up against the tyranny of a monarchy that treats all its subjects as indentured servants is a popular and enduring theme. Given the current raft of 3-D, IMAX, and films heavily laden with special effects, Robin Hood is a welcome break from all the high-tech, super-hero mania that’s been taking over theaters of late.
Summary: Robin Hood felt like a movie you'd watch just to waste time because theres nothing else better on.When I 1st started watching it seemed like an alright movie but then it just went on & on & on.I noticed I kept pressing info on the remote just to find out how much more I had to watch before it was over
