I thought Robin Hood was great with plenty of action, humor, and adventure to keep you going and watching. Though I used to love the Kevin Costner Robin Hood version growing up, but this one is good too...a lil' different and more like a modern Gladiator, after all, Russell Crowe also starred on it and the same director, Ridley Scott directed this, so the comparison's natural. Besides, Gladiator was one of the best films and had won Russell Crowe and the film both Oscars. This film was good on its own. The story was set before the Kevin Costner version and was said to be a prequel. The story was well written. The cinematography and visual effects were equally great. Good direction by Ridley Scott (though Gladiator was still the best, in my opinion). Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett were both great as Robin and Maid Marian as well as Pride & Prejudice actor Matthew Macfadyen (would've love to have seen him appear more as he had quite a few scenes in this film) as the idiot Sheriff of Nothingham. The rest of the supporting cast including Mark Strong were pretty good too.

Overall, it was a very good revamped and prequel version of Robin Hood. I thought it was different from the previous Robin Hood versions, but worth watching nonetheless. I loved and enjoyed watching the whole movie. I was into it from beginning to the end. Great movie! I highly recommend you see this while its still in theaters. Go See it!

My Robin Hood Film Rating: ! (9.5/10; A)
