Robin Hood


Robin Hood

Critics 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.

Movie Info

Director Ridley Scott and actor Russell Crowe reunite for their fifth big-screen outing, a retelling of the Robin Hood legend featuring the Gladiator star in the titular role. A bowman in the army of Richard Coeur de Lion, virtuous rogue Robin Hood rises from an unlikely background to become a hero to the impoverished people of Nottingham and lover to the beautiful Lady Marion (Cate Blanchett). Cyrus Voris, Ethan Reiff, and Brian Helgeland collaborate on the screenplay for a costume adventure produced by Brian Grazer (Frost/Nixon, American Gangster). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Robin Hood

All Critics (246) | Top Critics (48) | Fresh (106) | Rotten (140)

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Jul 7, 2010 | Rating: B-
  • 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.

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

    May 21, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    May 20, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • "And so the legend begins," the new movie tells us at the end. But it's too late.

    Another Robin Good remake/reboot whatever you want to call it and after it started brightly it did fall flat in the middle and we really didn't have any care for the main plot as we all know it, The ending battle was ok but nothing great, Russel Crowe played a good Robin but his accent was not very good, I should know as I live in the East Midlands where Nottingham is and his accent is pretty poor.

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

    Robin Hood wasn't bad, but there are so many problems that it was hard to say it was good. Russell Crowe was great, first of all, a very good performance. The plot, not so good, it was unhistorical and unethical, you'll get bored after a while. Cate Blanchett, she brings nothing new to the table. The music was great, really catchy to me. The battle scenes were a little out of place and unrealistic, I expected better from Ridley Scott. It could've been great, but with so many problems its hard to give it a good rating. C+
