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.

It would seem that Ridley Scott and Robin Hood would be a perfect match especially when it reunited him with Russell Crowe after their great success together with Gladiator, as well as the inclusion of Cate Blanchett as Maid Marion. Unfortunately while the acting is good and the film features some beautiful landscape, the films features very little action and some really dull storytelling; better off sticking with Prince of Thieves I think.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring 10 Sep 2012
By James g
Format:DVD
Lots of mysterious mist and kids in hoods?with Russell Crowe wondering around trying to find a accent to stick with,the action when it finally arrived was all shaky cam and bland and by the time Russell Crowe finds his Robin Hood I was left thinking why did Ridley Scott not do the same old version of Robin Hood instead of this back story version it would have been better then this long bore.The Robin Of Sherwood tv show from years back did the mysterious misty woods better and Princess Of Thieves had Kevin Costner doing a mild Crowe change if accent but no where near as bad and the film was entertaining had heart and fun moments,i would even recommended the Disney cartoon of Robin Hood over this!,At least the DVD cover was a nice shade of emerald green!.

4.0 out of 5 stars Legend from a different perspective 14 Oct 2010
Format:DVD
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.

By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
One fears that Ridley Scott is by now so important to the Hollywood money men that the prospect of sitting him down and offering advice would be seen as an act of outright hostility. But after watching "Robin Hood 2010" you feel that if only someone had the gumption to go up to him and say "Look Rid, you are a great film-maker, you have a huge track record of success but frankly this is a pile of pants and that bloke Crowe's acting is as wooden as the outside privy door" then something could have been salvaged from this risible mess. Indeed watching the Orange Commercial ads before the film you feel that Scott may have been one of the hapless directors whose film pitch was victim to the dastardly plans of the shallow, product placement executives who decided what they wanted was a mix of "Robin Hood - Men in tights" meets "Saving Private Ryan". It is true that Robin Hood films traditionally have a license to totally rip up the history book but in this case it is absolutely shredded, thus we have a number of interesting new theories and historical discoveries. They include -

1. Robin Hood's dad wrote the Magna Carta.
2. At the end of 12th century we were subject to a "French Armada" who alighted at the English equivalent of Omaha beach in World War II landing craft with oars and then decided that were anyone to make a film of their exploits they would make a pitch for Steven Spielberg to direct.
3. The Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire seems to have taken on whole new forms and dimensions in Scott's film where it is a veritable "Champion the wonder horse" carved onto a small hill

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 5 July 2014
By Kevin
Format:DVD
While Robin Hood is certainly a well-made film, it's not the most enjoyable. Not much happens for the first hour and three quarters, although the last half-hour is admittedly great. The performances and characters are rather boring, and much of the movie lacks action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lighten up! 8 Sep 2010
By academe
Format:DVD
Just a reply to a couple of points raised by others.
Firstly, as far as we know, Robin Hood is a conflation of various other 'rebels'and now unknown story-tellers favourites or a purely mythical creation.
There would have been already well-known stories of adventure and derring-do re-ascribed to 'Robin Hood' as the action hero 'flavour of the medieval day'.
Therefore, adding another layer to the mythos is not a crime, it's more a continuation of the historical process - the myth of Robin Hood did not spring into being fully formed and finished, after all...
Secondly, Prince John DOES NOT SIGN anything like the Magna Carta in the movie - it actually gets destroyed!
Any complaints about the dates for the signing of the Magna Carta being out by years are therefore irrelevant, as are complaints about Robin Hood's dad writing it.
Obviously, it was just a template, later revived and improved by the English Barons : ) (Joke!)
And thirdly, as for Eleanor of Aquitaine not seeing herself as English, well, she WAS Queen consort of England from 1154-1189, 35 years, her husband being Henry, Count of Anjou and Duke of Normandy, later to become Henry 2nd OF ENGLAND.
At this point, the relationship between England and France was far more indistinct than in the modern day; great swathes of France were tied to England by marriage and conquest. If you were the monarch of a country, you would see yourself as a 'defender' of that nation, be it where you were born or not; it would be your royal duty.
Finally, the wandering accents - unless Ridley Scott did a Mel Gibson and made the whole film in Medieval Anglo Saxon English, Norman French and Medieval Latin, no accent is going to be 'authentic' - we're not even sure what the accents they had back then sounded like!
