Summary: 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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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...
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...
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.
