    Very Cool

    I went and saw this movie in the theatres with my dad...both of us long time Ridley Scott fans. I also rather like Russell Crow, ever since I saw him in Gladiator. My dad and I both really enjoyed this movie. The story is a slight bit different from other Robin Hood movies, and whether the either stories are accurate or not, I have no idea. However, this movie was really awesome, as was Prince of Thieves back in the 90s as well. Both are different in story, but are both really good in their own right. I have yet to purchase this movie, but I rather want to...and more than likely on blue ray. If you are a fan of epics or of Ridley Scott & any of the actors in this, I highly recommend giving it a watch. It's pretty good.

    Robin Hood

    I loved this remake of the classic movie. Adding tons of modern perspective to that era was spectacular. I also enjoyed the fact that I could learn about the events of the movie without it turning into a total history lesson. The mannerisms and the way of life stayed very close to the time this movie was in and I loved,loved the action scenes especially the archer and battle moments! Russell Crowe shines as Robin of the Hood, he emulates the character so perfectly and fits the bill for the person to be the warrior and wise man. I also loved the way Robin and Marion's relationship played out in this movie! Cate and Russell made the perfect couple! The overall feel of this film is serious and dark but it gets balanced by witty moments that make this movie worth watching again and again!

    Nice action/adventure movie

    Robin Hood is an action/adventure starring Russel Crowe and Cate Blanchett who both did fine performances as Robin Hood(Crowe) and Lady Marion(Blanchett).

    This movie is a prequel leading up to legend of Robin Hood. The movie starts with King Richard the Lionheart leading his army in the crusades. Robin Longstride was one of the archers for Richard. Also among the army is three of Robin's key members of his Merry Men, Little John(Kevin Durand), Will Scarlet(Scott Grimes), and Allan A'Dayle(Alan Doyle).

    France plots for killing Richard but, when their assassin Godfrey(Mark Strong) makes his move he's told Richard already dead by Sir Robert Loxley(Douglas Hodge). Loxley asks Robin just before his death to take his sword to his father which Robin agrees. Robin and his Merry Men, dress as knights to return Richard's crown.

    Robin is asked to pretend to be Robert Loxley by his father Sir. Walter Loxley(Max von Sydow), cause he's sickly and when he dies if his son is declared dead Marion will lose her land. Marion doesn't like the idea but, she warms up to Robin along the way.

    Godfrey still ploting with France stirs up the northern villages and they decide they want to fight newly King John, cause of it. France's idea is to attack while England is fighting among themselves.

    Robin helps unite all the villages to fight the French with agreement from John that he would sign into law a decree that would limit the crown's power. However John refuses at the end, sighting that his power given to him by God. He declares Robin an outlaw and so the legend begins.
