John & Becky’s Movie Review of Robin Hood

Becky and I went to see the new Robin Hood movie on Friday. The Fandango website at Robin Hood describes the movie as follows:

“Oscar® winner Russell Crowe stars as 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 lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power. And whether thief or hero, one man from humble beginnings will become an eternal symbol of freedom for his people…”

The Review
Robin Hood is the new Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett flick by Ridley Scott, who did the Gladiator film with Russell Crowe. The film was good, but it was way too long. It was too much like Gladiator meets Braveheart and that was the distraction of the film in that we’ve seen it already.

The story was interesting of course because it’s Robin Hood and the cinematography was great, but the movie was kind of boring. It was way too long and it just wasn’t very exciting as we expected it to be. Becky almost fell asleep a few times in the movie, so she wasn’t overly impressed with this flick. I liked the movie, but I didn’t like it enough to recommend that you go and sit in the theater for almost three hours. It’s not as good as you would expect.

We would both have to say to wait on this one. Becky didn’t even think it would make a good rental.
