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: "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: 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
Excerpt: From what I saw in the trailers for this film, I was expecting a fast-paced action flick. Sadly, the movie is far from it. Following the death of "King Richard the Lionhearted" (Danny Huston) during the Crusades, "Robin Longstride" (Russell Crowe) and four men come upon the aftermath of an ambush, and find a dying British knight who tells "Longstride" of a plot between France and a British collaborator -- a British knight.
Summary: An OK and often entertaining action adventure, but it can't decide whether it wants to be a historical drama about uprisings in England or an origin story that pays homage to past Robin Hood films. The Robin Hood stuff is sort of murky and boring, but the historical and political intrigue really shines.
Summary: Okay, so, here's the down-low for Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood." There are a great deal of items that can be considered positive, but as a whole, it was like a cheap revamp of "Gladiator." The characters were the same, the story was slightly altered for a swashbuckling tale, but it just seemed like Ridley Scott was attempting another form of his classic triumphs.
Summary: i was disappointed by this movie. i was expecting it to be like the kevin costner version but it was all different. some parts in the movie i couldn't understand what was happening. it was way to long and a lot of the scenes could have been cut out, because there was no point to some of them. i still think that kevin costners version will stay at the most memorable.
