I expected Robin Hood to be Gladiator + Braveheart and I was pleased to find that it stands on its own as an entertaining movie.

The irony here is between the powerful merge of cinematic storytelling, history, and the dominant role of the market, because if Sir Ridley Scott's epic doesn't make a profit, there won't be a sequel, and more's the pity.

It's a prequel of sorts to the popular folklore, a prequel that nobody asked for.
December 25, 2012
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.

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.
April 8, 2012
A solid change of pace for those seeking something a bit more substantial amid the sound-and-fury norm.

Ridley Scott brings his usual keen cinematic eye and pain-staking attention to period detail to Robin Hood, bringing an uninspired script to life without a grander purpose than to just exist as a typical Summer movie.
November 5, 2011
I don't know if anyone can better direct the kind of swords-and-horses action on display here.

Robin Hood looks great, with the sort of well-executed mise-en-scène we've come to expect from Scott, but it's a lot of sound and thunder that amounts to nothing.

If you don't want a chillier, wetter Gladiator then why are you even thinking of buying a ticket?
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 3, 2011
There's so much stuff crammed in here that the filmmakers forget to tell a truly engaging story.

January 3, 2011
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.

Good but not great. The meatier story always follows the introduction, right?
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 27, 2010
It's a blah story with roots in neither history nor popular myth, and it doesn't set up Robin Hood as someone we'd care to follow after this story is told.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
October 21, 2010
Scott's adaptation ... [is] about separating the legend from the man; it's about bringing Robin of the Hood out of the stratosphere of adulation and presenting him as a regular, human man.

September 28, 2010
I'm thinking the title of the movie should be Ridley Scott's Robin Hood - How to make the English hate the French again.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 23, 2010
With its cast of thousands and impressive sets, Robin Hood looks great but this is not the gritty re-imagining of the Merry Men that many had hoped for - in fact, it hardly even counts as a Robin Hood film.

September 23, 2010
The Robin Hood we get from Scott and Crowe is neither rollicking fun nor clever re-imagining.
