    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.

    Entertaining Movie

    Posted

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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).

    This is the story of Robin Longstride and how he comes to be Robin Hood. Well crafted plot that tells the tale of Robin before he becomes the legend. I really enjoyed the story and Ridley Scott as director made this an untypical Robin Hood movie. Great addition to my DVD collection.

    Since I was a child, I watched several version of the Robin-hood. I felt this is the closest one to the original Robin-Hood. It got my son attention which he has never seen the original Robin-Hood. I purchase it because I watch the movie over and over again. I also while in my travels I can watch it from my laptop which is a great feature.

    Thankfully they didnt go off the deep end with stupid "theatrical" swords that look cool but have never been seen in history other than the movie (300). Glad they portrayed everyone in mostly period clothing and weaponry/armor. Russell Crowe shows that he does go "fightin round the world"

    I cannot say enough about this hugely underrated flick. Crowe and Scott team Up again (Gladiator) and they do not disappoint. CROW IS TOP-notch, and you can tell that Ridley Scott had passion for this project because from the opening sequence the audience is hooked.

    I was having a wrong idea about Robin Hook but with this movie I have a different concept about his life. It is almost the tale a the Mio Cid. The movie is excellent with great cast and the sightseeing are well elaborated. Must see movie if you missed.

    This movie may not be the most popular Robin hood Movie as far as the legend goes but I love it!! It gives you an idea on how the legend came to be not how it ended. Plus the way life is portrayed is the most accurate historically!!

    This is the most realistic adaptation of Robin Hood to date and definitely a wonderfully shot movie. Russell Crowe and the entire cast is way beyond what this movie could have afforded if done today. A must see.

    When I first heard they were changing the Robin Hood story we all know for this movie I was skeptical. What a pleasant surprise just how awesome the more historically accurate tale is. Awesome movie and great price.

    Very underrated remake - wish they continued this into a series/saga of its own. Russell Crowe continues to crush this era of acting - wroth the purchase!
