Consensus: Ridley Scott's revisionist take on this oft-told tale offers some fine acting and a few gripping action sequences, but it's missing the thrill of adventure that made Robin Hood a legend in the first place.

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.

"And so the legend begins," the new movie tells us at the end. But it's too late.

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

The film is pretty, and there are a few solid moments every hour. But considered as a work of cinema, with paid professionals involved, it's an extremely lackluster story.

Robin and Marian are played by a scowling Russell Crowe and a grim Cate Blanchett, who has the face of a wooden squaw stained by decades of cigar smoke. I can't remember a more un-fun-looking couple.

Dark and depressing, this adventure lacks all of the excitement and joy of many of Robin Hood's previous adventures.

Yes, it's dour, but it's also gritty and not nearly as silly as most "Robin Hood" adaptations.

As in so many summer behemoths, the real stars are the projectiles-in this case, arrows with their own point-of-view shots, zipping through the air and finding their targets with pinpoint accuracy.

Despite [its] problems, it is still worth seeing mainly because of its fascinating take on the characters.

The movie sets the background to the legend of Robin Hood. Russell has got a lot of stick over his accent but his character is endearing. He starts the movie as… More

A decent enough film, with good production value. However it's no Gladiator this time out, in truth it feels more like a prequel to what led up to the tale… More
