Robin Hood (2010)



Critic Consensus: Ridley Scott's revisionist take on this oft-told tale offers some fine acting and a few gripping action sequences, but it's missing the thrill of adventure that made Robin Hood a legend in the first place.

Critic Reviews for Robin Hood

All Critics (240) | Top Critics (42)

We never even get to see Robin steal from the rich and give to the poor. That's because the film is a prequel in search of a sequel. With any luck, we won't get one.

It's a prequel of sorts to the popular folklore, a prequel that nobody asked for.

Full Review… | September 15, 2013

Dark and depressing, this adventure lacks all of the excitement and joy of many of Robin Hood's previous adventures.

Despite [its] problems, it is still worth seeing mainly because of its fascinating take on the characters.

I thought [Robin Hood] was going to be the best film of the year ... [it] never gels.

The Aristocrat

There are fleeting moments when Scott's camera captures some of the mystery and magic of the greenwood, catches sunlight and shadows and glancing figures flitting through the trees - and you glimpse the enduring potency of the Robin Hood myth.

Audience Reviews for Robin Hood

A truly polarizing film. Writing this review a couple of months after seeing it, it feels forgettable, but I remember being entertained, and thinking that the story was well-organized with a few clever angles in the adaptation. I'm saying the same about this as I did about Body of Lies: mediocre for Ridley Scott is still better work than a lot of Hollywood garbage.

Epic, powerful war scenes. Strong acting. Lots of fun!

A decent enough film, with good production value. However it's no Gladiator this time out, in truth it feels more like a prequel to what led up to the tale of Robin Hood. It can't top prince of Thieves though for me.
