It is a very fun movie. It's not full of jokes, but in general it doesn't feel sad and melancholic.
I don't know how accurate it was, but in general it seems like they knew what they were talking about. The setting doesn't seem sureal, and I love how the king says "I was chosen by God", because it is exactly the argument that was used to defend absolutist monarchy.
Lady Marion is not some posh girl who can't do anything by herself. She had to take care of the farm almost entirely by herself, so she (ussually) needs no help.
Also, the fact that the main characters (Robin and Marion) are very adult, and not a 20 something couple, makes it look more serious. And the romantic side of the movie is not too long, neither are the big battles, so it's not a Transformers-like film in that sense.
And I love how it ends, and the fact that they told Robin Hood's life BEFORE he became a thief, and not the classical story.
I think the only thing I could say I didn't like so much was that the first part was a little slow and not much happened, but I didn't really have a problem with that.
So in general, a good movie, very balanced and I'm looking forward to seeing the sequel!
