Ridley Scott's Robin Hood



This movie was worth it....I really enjoyed this flick a great deal. I made sure to avoid reading what the critics and the vocal movie viewers had to say. I simply wanted to have my own movie experience, pure and simple.

The movie hit the right notes, and it thought me a lot about the way British people see themselves and how proud they are of their history and their hero.

Ridley Scott does not make movies in a calculation, he just makes what he thinks would be a good story to tell. Ever since the Gladiator and he made few dozen movies, some did not go as well. But Robin Hood is a masterpiece. A fresh lock at the legend that we all learned to adore. This is not your typical Robbin Hood just stealing stuff away.

This is about the history of England in the 12th Century, the king and the whole 9 years. The movie also touches on the crusades and the rivalry with the French. Politics, fatherhood, motherhood and knighthood are consistent themes throughout the movie.

I think the casting direcots is worth his paycheck, the cinematography and the landscape are captivating. The customs reminds of Kingdom of Heaven, another Ridley Scott movie. Russell Crowe is back to do the part we have always known he is capable of doing. Cate Blanchett, William Hurt bring their talent and energy that transform the movie into a true epic.
