Robin HoodPosted: 15.05.2010
When I think of Robin Hood I think of the Merry Men living it up in Sherwood forest, overcoming the evil and slightly comical sheriff of Nottingham with a handful of skirmishes. Ridley Scott’s version of this fabled tale however focuses on the early days of Robins life. This was a brave move on his part, by-passing the popular part of the legend we get a new perspective on Robin but not necessarily an entertaining one. Expect lots of battles and subterfuge, a few dodgy accents and a sense of boredom half way through.
