Robin Hood Review

To start with, this movie is not about the Robin Hood we know in stories and such, rather this film is about how Robin Longstride became Robin Hood. 

  The movie's director has many great films to his name, Alien comes to mind, and his direction in this movie is brilliant.  The shots are nitty, dirty and perfectly woven into the story's context.  
  The cast is is also great, with Russel Crowe playing Robin Hood.  Crowe gives the character a wisened man who can still kick ass, while Cate Blanchett plays the role of Marion Loxley.  Some have said that a younger woman would have been better, buth with Russel Crowe that woman would have been young enough to be his daughter!

  The story is solid enough and with a mix of friendly scenes mixed in with battle and war one would no see the time pass by.  One thing I have noticed, that doesn't really bode well for the film, is King James' rather great resemblance to Blackadder.  I was just waiting for Baldrick to show up with is boxers draped on his head.

  The action is well directed, with a number of impressive scenes that remind me of the bomb scene in Pearl Harbor.  The acting is great, and the musical score is good too.

  All in all I'd give it an 8/10, and here's the trailer:
