Robin Hood was a nice surprise cos’ I liked it more than I thought I would. I’ve never experienced the tale of Robin Hood in this light and I must say that it’s a fresh take of an age-old character that most of not everyone of us would know. Russell Crowe plays an atypical Robin Hood which is an interesting take on the character to say the least.
What’s cool is that Ridley Scott has left the movie open for future expansion cos’ the movie seems to be made as a launch pad for future stories. The minor downside that it seems to be an extra-long introduction to the characters in a sense.
If you’re a fan of Gladiator or Russell Crowe then this one is worth a spin. I give it a solid 4 Stars out of 5.
