[vc_row][vc_column][wpsm_woobox id=”48604″][/vc_column][/vc_row]Russell Crowe (Robin Hood) and Ridley Scott (Director) bring back our favorite swashbuckling, do gooder, Robin Longstride and the classic conflict between the rich and poor in feudal England. The authentic historical settings, engaging battles and likeable cast provides for a good film worth viewing but not great. Robin Hood isnäó»t exactly merry and the movie is more of a historical drama when a heroic adventure is expected.

The movie begins with an engaging action sequence as the army assaults a French castle as King Richardäó»s army returns from the crusades. Robin Hood is an archer in King Richardäó»s army and promises a dying Knight to return his sword to his family. After the King is killed, Robin Hood returns to England with what turns out to be his merry band of men. When he arrives, he is convinced to impersonate the nobleman to save his lands from the evil Sheriff of Nottingham by the noblemanäó»s wife Maid Marion (Cate Blanchett) and her feisty father (Max von Sydow). Robin saves the estate from Nottingham and begins his mission to end the rampant corruption found in Nottingham. This creates serious enemies in the new King (Oscar Isaac) and his cunning advisor (Mark Strong) leading to the final battle, another engaging action sequence. The exciting first and last battle scenes bookend several sub-plots and little action in between.

Rated PG-13 for intense battles and violence and some sexual content the movie and may not be appropriate for young teens. The sense of fun and excitement expected of a Robin Hood movie is missing.
