Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe reunites with legendary Gladiator director Ridley Scott for epic action adventure in Robin Hood.

Discover the untold story of the man behind the legend as Robin, a heroic warrior, turns outlaw when he assembles a band of skilled marauders to confront injustice and lead an uprising against a weak and corrupt English King.

When the rebellious hero falls for the spirited Lady Marion (Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett), he must first save her village and then confront a growing storm of threats from near and afar if he is to win her heart. As Robin and his men answer a call to ever-greater adventure, these unlikely heroes set off to battle for their country and return England to glory ... and ride into Legend.

This is an interesting take on the Robin Hood legend, or at least its beginnings. The plot is certainly straightforward and the film is not fast-paced, though the same could be said of Scott's brilliant sci-fi classic Alien. However, this movie is neither brilliant nor a classic.

There are plenty of historical inaccuracies, the script is full of cliches and Crowe's accent equals Dick Van Dyke's in Mary Poppins in how terrible it is, even managing to move into Scouse for a while when the king's knights are found ambushed. Like a number of films in recent years, it bangs on about democracy but not quite to the same extent as 300: Rise of an Empire. Yes, we know democracy is better than any other form of rulership, we don't need it drummed into us.

I did enjoy the character of Friar Tuck, played well by Mark Addy (The Full Monty). I also thought Mark Strong (Sunshine, Sherlock Holmes) was good as the main villain, something he must be used to playing by now, and Max Von Sydow's (Dune, Minority Report) performance as Sir Walter Loxley was the best in the film in my opinion.

I didn't mind the simplicity of plot and time taken to tell the story, some of the best films ever made are like that. I also thought the action sequences were good, as were the costumes and atmospherics. Like at least one other reviewer, I did find it grating to hear a song I knew during one of the celebrations in the film, but the worst thing for me was definitely Crowe. If you can cope with his accent and let go of any hope of historical accuracy (as you must when watching films like Braveheart), then this film is a middling piece of entertainment suited to a dark and dismal Sunday afternoon in winter, the sort of film you can have a snooze to if the mood takes you.

Format: Blu-ray
Despite a convoluted and tortuous pre-production history and the participation of two of the biggest bigheads in the business, Ridley and Russell's Robin Hood is a surprisingly impressive and enjoyable medieval epic that manages to find a new string for the old longbow by placing a prequel to the Hooded Man's outlaw days in a relatively accurately drawn Middle Ages with some contemporary relevance. Admittedly it's going to mean a lot more to British and European audiences, but it's hard not to notice that in its unloving royal siblings Richard (a gruff and bluff Danny Huston) and John (an impressive Oscar Isaac) there's more than a little Tony Blair - vain, bankrupting his abandoned country in unnecessary foreign wars and delusionally regarding himself as a pretty straight kind of guy yet quick to punish anyone who tells him the truth - and Gordon Brown - a petty and spiteful ruler who briefly wins over his people with promises he promptly drops as soon as his throne is secure and is woefully inadequate at turning the economy around. The film even uses the infamous political kiss-of-death phrase 'resigning to spend more time with his family' when honest chancellor William Marshall (William Hurt, looking surprisingly like the director) finds himself out of a job.

There are more nods to James Goldman than Errol Flynn here: Eleanor of Aquitaine gets a few bits of Lion in Winterish sniping without the barbed wit (though John's retort "Spare me your farmyard memories, mother: they're not real and I don't understand them" comes close) while the film begins, like Robin and Marion, with Robin and Little John in the King's bad books for being a bit too honest as the Lionheart loots his way back from the Crusades.

I like different takes on the same subject matter. May be this is why -against all the negative feedback here- I still like this movie. It could also be the fact that I am not English (although I am very familiar with Robin Hood and I love the concept as it is universal) and have no national pride involved. Still, the aura around this film, the way it tells the story made me like it.
First of all, (my observations are nowhere near objective as I am no history buff) everything looked more authentic. The way Scott handles Lionheart and Prince John appear to be more realistic. May be this Robin Hood takes itself too seriously but I believe it is a fresh approach. Up to now, it has always been Robin Hood and his merry men. Now it is Robin Longstride with his ex-military guerilla.
Every legend has something true at its root, which has been so twisted out of shape that it would be very hard to recognize after so long a time. Ridley Scott is attempting to explain how this legend came to life. And I believe he succeeds.
Are there no flaws? Of course not. Crowe's accent is a problem but Blanchett's serene, strong Marion balances his faults. Beautiful shots throughout the movie made me disregard the slow storytelling. Actually, for me it strengthened the effect of the film. I hate it when a director goes too quickly over character build-up, scene setting to the battles etc. It is not all about action. The legend has a heart and the film also tries to reflect that.
There are times when the hype around a movie becomes its pitfall. I feel everybody expected the ultimate Robin Hood from Ridley Scott. It isn't. But it is still a very, very good movie.
