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.

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.

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.
