These days blockbuster films tend to take the dark, moody, mature route and lack a little fun. Next up is Robin Hood and a myth told so many times that instantly this film seems utterly pointless. Unfortunately it doesn't do anything to dispel that particular myth either but does offer some good battle scenes and some beautiful cinematography.

Ridley Scott can mount a battle scene rather well as he has proven so many times before. Here the bloodless battles offer some great sword swinging action but it does miss some of Robin's famous archery skills. This is where the mature part comes in. Rather than the happy, merry criminal we are used too we have an embittered tortured soldier who cares little for his king when he dies and more about saving his own backside.

There is no problem with exploring another side to a character but why does he have to be so dour? And when one element which is crucial to this character (his willingness to stand up for innocent people) is side lined in favour of setting up a battle with the French, you do wonder where the love is.

Herein lies the issue. There is no heart to this story, no love behind the making. It doesn't feel like Scott and Crowe are that bothered about it all. Robin Hood is just another blundering, blustering lurch from one battle to another. The parts in between have no substance or depth and just act as story mechanics to get the characters from A to B. The less said about Maid Marion the better. One of the most under written parts I have seen in a long time. It starts off with glimmers of a tougher Marion who may take on the world but in the end she is just another damsel in distress.

Scott's films are often stunning to look at and it is no different here.

Long and boring with Russell Crowe changing accent whenever he liked and Ridley Scott thinking we want shaky cam action when the action final happens!, easily the worst film of Robin Hood I have seen not because it was not the straight forward retelling of the story but because it lack thrills, heart and characters to care about!, maybe Ridley Scott is just too long in the tooth and past his best.

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.

A fantastic story poorly told, poorly directed and as a result, poorly performed. Don't waste your time.

An absurd script lushly implemented is still absurd. What a waste of time.

This is definitely not Ridley Scott's finest hour. In my opinion, Russell Crowe is vastly overrated and is totally miscast as Robin Hood in this dreary, clichéd and ill advised production. I sincerely hope they don't do a sequel; I won't be watching it.

Scott returns as director on this film and has Russell Crowe for a last collaboration and they make an enjoyable action film which does not provide strong development in both character and story development.
