Robin Hood | ★★★★★★★

I liked this movie but was surprised that it was a prequel to the legend and every other movie bearing the same name. It was no surprise that Russell Crowe played the lead in somewhat of a Gladiatorish manner.

I thought that the story gave a bit of historicity to the tale - it told the story of how Robin went from serving in King Richard's Crusade to becoming an enemy of King John. Cate Blanchett played well off Crowe as Marian. I liked the way that Ridley Scott painted a tale of a warrior who became a man of conscience. He did a good job in contrasting good, evil and the abuse of power.

I recommend it to anyone who liked Gladiator or Braveheart. On a scale of 10, I give it ★★★★★★★


  1. This will be a must, since we both liked Gladiator and Braveheart!

  2. I want to see it, although I'm kind of partial to Robin Hood: Men in Tights. :)
