Storyline Heading
The story of the legendary figure known by generations as "Robin Hood," whose exploits have endured in popular mythology and ignited the imagination of those who share his spirit of adventure and righteousness. In 13th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and challenge the crown to alter the balance of power between the king and all of his subjects. And whether outlaw or hero, one man from humble beginnings will become an eternal symbol of freedom for his people.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure - This is not a typical take on the classic legendary hero, as it's more of a gritty English historical epic that uses the familiar characters. The tone is more serious than most previous Robin Hood films, and has slow, talky passages in the middle between big battle scenes. Fans of star Russell Crowe should be pleased, as should fans of Cate Blanchett.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average There is some entertainment value to be found in Robin Hood, but my sincerest hope is that there's a better version out there awaiting a DVD release.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average "Robin Hood” is a high-tech and well made violent action picture using the name of Robin Hood for no better reason than that it's an established brand not protected by copyright.

USA Today Full Review
Average The cinematography is stunning, and the production design vividly evokes the era. But for a reported cost of $200 million, it should look good. The score is stirring and moody. But the protracted battle scenes provide enough shots of flying arrows to last a lifetime.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Robin Hood (Russell Crowe) chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard I's army against the French. Upon Richard's death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion (Cate Blanchett), a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life.

With their country weakened from decades of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies from within and threats from afar, Robin and his men heed a call to ever greater adventure. This unlikeliest of heroes and his allies set off to protect their country from slipping into bloody civil war and return glory to England once more.
