FILM REVIEW: Robin Hood

Director: Ridley Scott
Release: 2010

So it’s not what you expect. There’s no outlaw, but there is a woman, a band of merry man, and a very charismatic Russell Crowe filling the screen. The accent is crap but that can be forgiven.

Ridley Scott has made a prequel. The delights and splendours of one, if not two or even more, sequels are pre ordained by this film. It’s fascinating because it is based on the history of the 12th Century: From the reign of King Richard leading into the reign of King John (stunningly performed by Oscar Isaac). He is the epitome of the creepy but beautiful aristocracy who care about power to the exclusion of all else.Scott could easily create a 12th Century historical series through the eyes of Robin Hood leading up to the signing of the Magna Carta… Lets see if my prediction is right.

The decision to cast Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian and Eileen Atkins as the mother of the Kings, means that although men out number women in this film at least they can hold their own. But essential this film is a big budget Hollywood action film, with a little bit of history, and you either like big budget Hollywood or you don’t… I do.

I loved this film. From the opening credits to the closing credits I had a smile on my face.

Rating: 4/5
