Critic Review - Washington Post

The Robin Hood of myth and moviedom is for the most part AWOL. Why should we have to wait until the last five minutes to see Crowe crack a smile, let alone split an arrow?

He was shooting arrows within 5 minutes of the movie, and smiling within 15 minutes in the army camp when he was making money by gambling with the other soldiers. Did you even see the film? Regarding humor, the movie had loads of funny scences, especially with the Merry Men that had the same fun function as Stephen the Irish in Braveheart. It's interesting how many critics make the movie out to be a serious adaptation with zero humor, and then when you watch the movie yourself it's more of a fun historical adventure movie. Go figure.

Wow, this has to be the most narrow-minded review I've read thusfar. How can you call yourself a critic when you are basing your review on whether it fulfills your glib memory of the classic story?

Obviously you went to the wrong movie so your so-called review is a joke.

Top critic? I think not. Horrible review of an excellent movie. Just come out and say "I probably shouldn't review this movie because I don't care for this genre".
