    Not worth buying. It's average at best, not epic.

    As far as blu-ray transfers go, this movie is stock. I'm not writing about the quality of the blu-ray though. I'm just giving my opinion of the movie. Ridley Scott as we all know cannot make a movie in under 2 and a half hours. I'm not complaining about his previous movies like Black Hawk Down, Gladiator, or Kingdom Of Heaven; I love all of those. However, this film utilized confusing character development and just wasn't paramount in his directing career or Russel Crowe's for that matter. Robin Longstride's painful past was briefly run through and I just didn't care much about him or his path in the story. Russel Crowe had his witty moments but nothing of the caliber that his previous performances have delivered. He didn't have the epic persona of Maximus, William Wallace, or Leonidas. For an outlaw that did a lot of damage, it just seemed like it came easy for him. We all felt for Maximus, when his family was murdered by the terrible usurper to the throne of Rome. We feared and felt the suspense of the men trapped in Mogadishu. We felt the ferocity of the 300 spartans battling the massive Persian army. In the end I was scratching my head as Robin Hood just seemed to have the usual format for productions of this size with little originality. Format: beginning battle, some drama, battle, travel, battle, travel, suspense, battle, drama, and battle some more. The battles were well done, with brutal scenes of arrows piercing soldier's faces and fire scorching them to the ground, which is always a cathartic experience for us action fans, but that was about it. It seems like Ridley was on autopilot for this one. I don't recommend buying it, wish I would've rented it.

    Stunning pre-history of a familiar legend

    This review is not about the story all are familiar with, "steal from the rich and give to the poor", which actually isn't the focus of this film anyway. I'm concerned here with the quality of the 4K presentation here. Having recently purchased an LG OLED TV I was stunned with the attention to detail, richness of color and cinema quality of viewing experience. Ridley Scott has been one of my favorite directors since 1979 with Alien and this film does not disappoint. I'm a big fan of film scores and Marc Streitenfeld delivers with a rousing soundtrack worthy of the epic quality of this film. I hope other films of Mr. Scott make it onto 4K. On the negative side the film froze on Chapter 14 which required ejecting the disc and reinserting it and starting from the "resume film?" point. It played fine past that. This has happened to a few other 4K films I've watched, a minor annoyance. I gave this 4K disc 5 stars on the quality of the image and sound-I'm impressed.

    Good film, too long & bit confusing

    I was looking forward to this film. Been a fan of Russell's for over 10 years. You can see Gladiator in this film. A couple of similar scenes. The 5th teaming up of Russell & Ridley. 3 Oscar winners with Russell, Cate and…..where did they dig up William Hurt? His career was over in the 1980’s & he NEVER deserved his Oscar when it SHOULD have went to Harrison for "Witness". It is a good film BUT we knew from the publicity press the film would NOT follow normal story lines for the Robin Hood character. I found the storyline to get confusing. Spoiler……Russell & Cate do NOT meet until an hour into the story. Was a long film. Scenes like when we meet the John character with another woman other than his wife were unnecessary. Cheap DVD,. No chapter search list. NO extras on it. There was an HBO special NOT HERE. A special on the History Channel NOT HERE. Poor, cheap DVD. Good film but confusing & over long.

    Entertaining Movie

    I liked this movie. It was quiet different from all of the previous Robin Hood movies most people are accustomed to seeing, but I like the historical possibility of this particular movie. It could make you just go "Hmmmmm, so that's how it really started". Reminded me of the last "Arthur" movie of a couple of years ago. I found it to be an entertaining movie with a different viewpoint from those of the past. And for what it's worth, I found Russell Crowe's accent to be more believable than that of Keven Costner, even though I like that version also. I watch movies to be entertained and don't feel the need to pick them apart scene by scene. Either they entertain or they don't. Bottom line: I really liked it.

    I had seen bits and parts of this movie before, but when I saw it in Blu-Ray at a bargain price I thought that I would give it another look as I was not impressed with the first look. And I'm glad I did because it was much more interesting when I could devote more attention to what was going on in the story. I picked up a more historical view of this character than I did before regardless of if it was actually true or not. But it did give the movie a much deeper meaning, a meatier story. I would definitely suggest this movie to be watched by others. Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett were very good!

    Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood" has been criticized for being too long and mind-numbingly tedious. It has even been slammed for not being a swashbuckling, green-tights-and-Hollywoodized escapist lark like the old Errol Flynn movie. I, however, happen to love this "Robin Hood" like I can't tell ya. I'm a sucker for long historical films, and Scott's artistic triumph is a winner in my book. His attention to detail is legendary, and it suits his historical films nicely. I have the attention span to be able to sit through the extended director's cut, and I'm enraptured every time. This is not your grandpa's Robin Hood...thank goodness.

    The movie starts out really good and somewhat fast, then dies down and is really fast paced at the end. long movie, but i liked it more the 2nd time i watched it. not something you want to watch if you are tired, will put you to sleep!! other then that, the acting was great and the story line was too. if you dont like robinhood, i dont recommend you watch this movie,otherwise, i think its a really great robinhood. and of course russell crowe was really hot and excellent in this film like always!!! i would recommend the directors cut if you can get it, the deleted scenes do help out and make for a better movie!!

    Like to have the various formats so I can watch/show video on both VCR/DVD Blue Ray as well as import digital copy into itunes to play on ipod. I loved this movie and found it had all aspects of a good movie. Laughter, and drama. Liked the story, which added to usual story about Robin Hood. Actors were very good, and i enjoyed the entire movie. Nice adventure for me, although my husband didn't like it, I found it " Very entertaining"...Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett did bold fighting scenes... Nice climax to movie

    My husband bought this movie and I really didn't even want to see it. Seeing Robin Hood with Kevin Cosner so many years ago was enough for me. Also, I still see Russell Crowe as Maximus, no matter what he is in.However, once I had watched 30 minutes of it, I was hook and was looking forward to seeing what would happen next. I didn't even get the Maximus vibe from Russell Crowe. It was long and Cate Blanchett, while well acted was not a convincing Maid Marian. Still its worth a look.

    Excellent acting! Faces in the crowd: Sgt. Malarkey in BAND OF BROTHERS the mocking deputy sheriff in 3:10 TO YUMA, the Knight in THE SEVENTH SEAL, the lawyer in WIDOW'S PEAK, the government official in the pocket of a pharmaceutical corporation in THE CONSTANT GARDENER.. And many others that film buffs will recognize. A truly international cast. Excellent production values. Green screen used but not obvious. A mature script about people.

    Superb cast throughout along with a typical well-done Ridley Scott direction. Good battle scenes, as well as some sentimental moments that let you learn more background regarding the various characters. A slight twist on some of the more recent Robin Hood versions (thinking about Kevin Costner's) version, but well done.

    When you watch this movie throw out everything you know about Robin Hood. When I first watched this movie I went into it with all I know about Robin Hood and my mind and I was disappointed in the movie. But, I watched it a second time, and I must say it was a good movie. It's nice to know how Robin Hood became Robin Hood, it's something I have always been interested in, and finally my questions were answered.

    This was a good take on how the legend of Robin Hood began. While it was a little slow at times, it had a good blend of action, drama, humor, romance, and suspense that made it worth the patience of getting through those slower moments. The casting was perfect with the actors' chemistry visible in the characters' interactions and relationships. Overall, this was a great movie and worth watching again and again.

    Great Origin Story

    masc360

    I know most people did not enjoy this movie as much as i did, and i will also agree that the title is misleading in a sense this movie is not about Robin Hood as much is it about how he becomes Robin Hood. i thought the acting was top notch and the cinematography was excellent. i recommend this movie to anyone that has an interest in what motivated the man that became Robin Hood, to become him.

    This is a really interesting origin story for the Robin Hood many of us are familiar with. I found this and the film's historical context very intriguing. Performances are solid and action is decent too. It can drag at moments and it get like the violence was toned down a little too much. I bought it on a whim as a Ridley Scott fan and the price was right. Glad I did. It was worth it.

    After watching all the other Robin Hood movies. They finally tell how Robin beacme the outlaw that we all know. Watching this version of Robin Hood has made me watch all the other Roin Hoods to Pick up where Russell Crowe's Robin leads into Kevin Costner's Robin picks up and to top of Robin Hood watch Mel Brook's Robin Hood Men in Tights. Oh that Robin.

    Robin Hood scuffles onto Blu-ray with a good, though at times problematic, AVC encoded transfer in 1080p and a 2.40:1 aspect ratio. When this transfer works well, it works very well indeed. Overall, despite this film's inherent bleakness and darkness, this is a respectably solid looking effort with only a few minor anomalies keeping it from a better score.

    Interesting prequel to the usual Robin Hood story. Provides an "Historical" background for the main characters of the legend. I have always enjoyed the mythology of this era: Ivanhoe, Knights of the Round Table, Robin Hood etc. And I like Crowe's work in general, although this performance doesn't come close to his work in Gladiator or A Beautiful Mind.

    I always loved the Kevin Costner version of Robin Hood from the nineties and this one is just as legit and good. Its a different take on the original story. The costumes and story are great and well written. Russel Crow is great as 'Robin Hood'(who he really isn't but I won't say anything more,i don't wanna give away any spoilers).

    I loved the new story and how it is more in tune with actual historical events. My kids all complained there were not enough battle scenes but I thought it was awesome. I definately recommend the director's cut since it gives you some more information as to how certain scenes play into other scenes. The theatrical version leaves you with some questions.
