Director Ridley Scott and actor Russell Crowe reunite for their fifth big-screen outing, a retelling of the Robin Hood legend featuring the Gladiator star in the titular role. A bowman in the army of Richard Coeur de Lion, virtuous rogue Robin Hood rises from an unlikely background to become a hero to the impoverished people of Nottingham and lover to the beautiful Lady Marion (Cate Blanchett). Cyrus Voris, Ethan Reiff, and Brian Helgeland collaborate on the screenplay for a costume adventure produced by Brian Grazer (Frost/Nixon, American Gangster).~Jason Buchanan

Rise and Rise Again: Making Ridley Scott's Robin Hood
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.
Robin Hood is one of my favorite stories, so I am a bit biased, but this ranks up there as one of the better tellings. It is not the best I have seen, but nostalgia for a couple others probably gets in the way.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Beautiful picture quality
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
I’m always a little skeptical of 4K transfers of films that were released prior to the recent 4K movement. However, this film looked absolutely beautiful in 4K. I was very pleased with the picture and sound quality. As for a review of the movie itself, obviously I’m a fan or I wouldn’t have purchased the movie. Underrated, fun movie with strong leads and an interesting take on the Robin Hood story.
Excellent movie for those who enjoy to watch medieval times with a lot of action and great special effects.
Excellent story line that will keep you wandering throughout the movie how the rise of a new hero will end up protecting his own people from the king madness,
Recommend 100% .
I Love this movie, its the Best of all the Robin hood tales in my opinion, next to Errol Flynn it don't get any better than this...
It has been out a while, but not the 4k version and having that and in 4k digital is worth the awesome Price BB has for this right now!
Its a great story, great acting, and just an all around great movie...
