Thiz movie is a new breed of Robin Hood from the father of “Alien” (1979), Ridley Scott. Robin Hood as we have known before is an honorable outlaw and great archer with tight pants, to rob the rich and give it to the poor. I know Scott wants his version of Robin Hood to be different. He is described with different haircut and beard. In fact, Russell Crowe performs the character in a similar way with his previous character in “Gladiator” (2000). You can see closely in his attitude and body language, the only thing that different is simply its outfit. On the other hand, Cate Blanchett provides a powerful performance as Marion. Blancett is one of a few Actresses who can always maintain her acting quality in each of her films. I think for her to involve in thiz epic is a completely waste of talent. The famous eternal villain of Robin Hood, Sherrif of Nottingham (Matthew MacFayden) is not in the focus of the story. But instead, the bad guy is a two-face traitor named Godfrey which is played by Mark Strong. In my opinion, he delivers the best performance for overall, along with William Hurt as King John’s chancellor. Recently, Mark Strong has been successfully built a great image of bad guy figure. The movie is actually filled with unique and electrifying Score. For the final battle of thiz movie, I can describe it as “Omaha Beach Attack” in medieval version. It’s just like what we have seen in the opening battle of “Saving Private Ryan” (1998), only thiz time with arrows and swords. The last four Ridley Scott’s movies also appointed Russell Crowe as his main character. Substantively, Crowe never delivers a lame performance. But once again (Spoiler Alert!), thiz movie is really a copy-paste of Scott’s “Gladiator”, besides the same acting of Crowe, it’s also about a warrior comes back to his hometown after patriotic battle and later he turns into a rebel to fight an evil King. Last time when we saw Kevin Costner’s “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” (1991), we brought home some memorable moments and its Soundtrack still echoes until now. If audience can accept thiz movie as a decent movie, don’t blame them (Scott and Crowe) if they are back again to offer you another typical ones with same Crowe’s acting and same Scott’s directing, maybe for the other time they will offer you with their version of Batman or James Bond or whatever. Shall we let them do it easily?

  1. Good one, Jonny! I haven't heard much good about this.

  2. Thanks, Darren =) So glad if my review is useful.

  3. Nice review Johnny. Your review made me convinced totally about this movie. I was not in a mood to watch this movie ever but now I am eagerly waiting for it. I will try to find it online and will watch it tonight.

  4. Watch robin hood 2010 full movie free click watch now. Bottom line is, that this movie was a waste of time. Maybe not AS big a waste as Avatar, but a waste nonetheless. I couldn't hear what the characters were saying, there were too many long talking scenes, the battles were confusing as to who was fighting who and why. The best moments in the movie where 1. when you can see the arrow leaving Robin Hood's bow in extreme slow motion, and 2. when the King screams in the weirdest way possible, "I declare him to be an OUTLAAAAAW!!" (It still cracks me up). Other than that, this movie is not worth seeing. It just doesn't work. Click watch movies free now.

    Russell Crowe seems to fat, too old, and too uninteresting to present a romantic or convincing Robin Hook to the screen. He tries to pull it off like an athletic shot-putter in what should be a ballet. Robin Hood should not be played like a gladiator. Gee, Sly Stallone could do same ( just as bad a job) as Crowe did for 10% of Russell's pay!The producers should have signed someone 20 years younger. .

    I'm surprised by the performance of Academy Award Winners Ridly Scott, Cate Blanchett, and Russell Crowe. This movie is a disgrace to them. I have 3 reasons why this movie is bad. 1. Very boring 2. Has stuff that the watcher doesn't need to know about 3. A Disgrace. I got so flicked off at the end of the movie i just wanted to go up on the screen and tear it down. This movie felt like it was 5 hours long!!! I wasn't the only one asleep. I heard someone snoring in the front seat of me. It about a person who fights and becomes a hero and later his name turns in to Robin Hood. Come on actors/actresses try again! I'll give this a 2/10
