Robin Hood

Who are these people panning this great adventure movie and why did they not pay a bit more attention? This is not the traditional Robin the Hood, robbing from the rich but instead a historically correct portrayal of the times. It speaks more to the abuse of a too powerful and over taxing government than it does the old Hollywood Merry Men. No it does not have clever joke lines, white knights or karate but it does have the drama, romance and adventure worthy of a subject that is one of our icons of the Swashbuckler venue. See it for yourself before you listen to the children below. I am going for the second time. This movie is on a scale with 'Masters and Commanders' and one that will hold up well to its earlier predecessors.

"Robin Hood"

Yes, this movie is "Robin Hood", not Robin Hood. Rumor has it this movie was actually suppose to be good. Then the usual movie politics: Producers assume the movie won't sell on it's own merits, and keep changing the plot/themes to match the audience under the assumption the audience are a bunch of idiots; and would only go see what they've already seen a million times.

Supposedly, the original plot was form the point of view of the Sheriff of Nottingham who is investigating a string of murders surrounding transports, and the story behind local legends and rumors surrounding a certain "Robin of the Hood". Which to me is a really brilliant idea, sharp, new, different.

What we got instead was a horrible amalgam of Braveheart, Gladiator, and Elizabeth, without any of the action, Gore, Intrigue, development, story, acting, drama, suspense, etc... etc... etc... that any of those movies provide. Notice no mention of Robin Hood in that? That's cause this movie has NOTHING to do with Robin Hood! Save for the names of people and places, NOTHING in this film has anything to do with Robin Hood.

Boring, drab, underwhelming, flat; and any other words you'd use to describe a dead swamp...

The only redeeming quality of the movie was the comic relief of Robin's 'Merry Men'. Little John, if given his own movie, would have been better than "Robin Hood".

I'm done...

Awful. Just awful.

There's really not a whole lot to say. It IS very similar to the History Channel: poor acting, bad dialogue, overly dramatic, uninspired fight scenes, historically inaccurate, stupidly cheesy ending.

It's just not a good movie in any way, at all. Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett fall uncharacteristically flat (though the script certainly doesn't help them any) and the acting is so rigid that it's impossible to have any sort of interest in the characters (the actor playing Prince/King John was so awful that I cringed a few times - "You are an OUTLAWWWWWWWWW". ugh.). The only character that can hold your attention for more than a few seconds is Richard the Lionheart and SPOILER: they kill him off pretty early (and similar to but not in a historically accurate manner).

There is one good thing about the movie, and that is that the scenery is beautiful. Breathtaking, really. It's a shame that the actors and the dialogue can't make anything out of it, however.

robin hood

A modern Che Guevara who takes from the rich to give it to the poor because the rich do not care. A dreamer an idealist. Wants to change the world to a better just world. Impossible as we can see today too.

I love Summer Movies!

If you find the History channel fascinating, you won't be able to take your eyes off this movie! Seriously great acting, of course, with Crowe and Blanchett. A few humorous moments which any great film will have. And very educational if the show is accurate. Historians are always debating what really happened.
