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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sunday afternoon viewing 22 Oct 2014
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring 10 Sep 2012
By Eddie
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best movie 19 Oct 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Robin hood was ok but lacked something special the scenery was amazing the beach scene which was filmed in wales is stunning but the main man who played robin hood Russell crowe I think he should have stayed in new Zealand and not graced the Welsh coast this is were a good actor as Russell who I do love but in other films as gladiator or the cinderella man was the wrong man he could not loose his accent and I belive the production team would have done better having a real man from Nottingham rather than a famous actor this time overall it is worth a watch but don't expect much from the movie.
