Audience rousing cinema of this size and class does not come along often. A titillating conclusion leaves open the possibility of a sequel, and if Robin Hood is anything to go by, then more than merrier.

Its $200-million budget is on the screen. This is a big-scale ambitious period epic in the 60s grand tradition. It seeks to retell a well-worn tale, to put old wine in a shiny new bottle.

It's strange to complain about historical inaccuracies in a film about a legend whose origin is heavily debated; However, that's exactly this film's biggest problem.

What is missing from this version of Robin Hood is the fun that usually goes with things like robbing the rich and giving the loot to the poor. This comes across as very serious, and it doesn't need to be.

This is not your Father's Nottingham and that's a good thing.

Nice cinematography and set design aside, "Robin Hood" fails at its most basic level--it's not particularly entertaining, and as such, it's not particularly worth your time.

Básicamente un buen entretenimiento, que especula sobre los orígenes del legendario personaje sin respetar demasiado la verdad histórica.

The film is pretty, and there are a few solid moments every hour. But considered as a work of cinema, with paid professionals involved, it's an extremely lackluster story.

Só se torne visualmente interessante já em seus créditos finais que combinam animação e live action através da rotoscopia -- mas aí já é tarde demais, posto que, para chegarmos ali, fomos obrigados a enfrentar 148 minutos de projeção.

Why, this isn't Robin Hood, it's the angsty modern superhero. It's Robin Hood as a 12th-century Batman. Did we really need this?

a glum, darkly serious, and slow-moving origin story that takes an exceedingly long time to get to the point where the movie should have actually begun

Boring and joyless, felled by a convoluted, mostly inconsequential plot, as huge chunks of the movie are taken up by negotiations and gamesmanship between characters we don't care about.

The legend lives on. Actually, this film is set right before the legend begins.

This is not the classic 1938 The Adventures of Robin Hood, but it is an excellent tale that harks back more to Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven than his Gladiator.

Yes, it's dour, but it's also gritty and not nearly as silly as most "Robin Hood" adaptations.

If Errol Flynn's archer was a New Deal advocate of wealth redistribution, Russell Crowe's dour AWOL soldier is a Robin of the Hood that Tea Partiers can embrace: a rebel against the tax and central-government tyranny of a callow young ruler...

There are great roaring fires and buckets of mead but none of it will ever warm you to Russell Crowe, whose charm seems to diminish by the nanosecond.
