Robin Hood

Birth of a legend. Following King Richard's death in France, archer Robin Longstride, along with Will Scarlett, Alan-a-Dale and Little John, returns to England. They encounter the dying Robert of Locksley, whose party was ambushed by treacherous Godfrey, who hopes to facilitate a French invasion of England. Robin promises the dying knight he will return his sword to his father Walter in Nottingham. Here Walter encourages him to impersonate the dead man to prevent his land being confiscated by the crown, and he finds himself with Marian, a ready-made wife. Hoping to stir baronial opposition to weak King John and allow an easy French take-over, Godfrey worms his way into the king's service as Earl Marshal of England and brutally invades towns under the pretext of collecting Royal taxes. Can Robin navigate the politics of barons, royals, traitors, and the French? (Source: IMDB)

Megan's Movie Review:
This was a good movie. I wasn't terribly in awe about it. I did like the story because it is one that you don't normally hear about. But see, before I went and saw this I wasn't too thrilled to see it in the first place because I didn't feel like they needed to make another Robin Hood. That was before I found out it was the story of before Robin Hood became who he was. I love the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves with Kevin Costner and I didn't feel like it was old enough to have a new one made. But back to this movie, it was good and I liked it. I would go see the sequel if they make another one. It was definitely more serious but it had some pretty good battle scenes. I don't know why, I wish I liked it more, and I tried going into this movie with an open mind, but I still like the old Robin Hood better (even though it was a different story).


Rating:
3 3/4 stars

I had very high expectations and who wouldn't? Ridley Scott directing a great adventure with a very stable cast and a high budget.
The movie didn't really start the way I thought it would. The pace was quite slow but very interesting, and I was gripped. The interaction between Robin and his fellow soldiers was quite believable and entertaining, and the story about the English crown succession was also nicely done.
