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.

Absolute rubbish! Terrible script, ludicrous historically, average performances, laughable painted backcloths, some good action, but filmed fast and furious, no real feeling of actual battle. Considering Ridley Scott is British, he has managed to make a move that looks as if it were made by an American 2nd Unit TV director. Don't bother!

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!

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.

Can I begin by saying that there is absolutely no reason to compare this with the schmaltzy Kevin Costner movie Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves [1991] [DVD]. The two are light years apart, and as you'd expect from a Ridley Scott film this is far grittier and miles more atmospheric, although it is far from po-faced and is actually quite lighthearted in places.
Russell Crowe is predictably one-dimensional in his portrayal of Robin Longstride, archer to Richard the Lionheart, who finds himself taking on another identity in order to spare an old man's (a superb Max Von Sydow) pride. Thus we have an alternative idea of how the Robin Hood myth came about, and on the whole it's a good, pacy action-oriented romp.
Mark Strong excels as evil henchman to King John - the scar-faced Godfrey, whilst Mark Addy (despite a fast-growing resemblance to the late Terry Scott) was born to play the less than pious Friar Tuck. Cate Blanchett makes a fine feisty Marian, and the actors playing the other outlaws all slot in nicely. Overall this is a decent enough addition to the ever-growing canon of Robin Hood adaptations, and with Scott's masterly handling Crowe isn't at all bad as the titular outlaw.
