I'm not a Critic, just a brown guy that loves movies!

Robin Hood- good- despite critics again

I liked Robin Hood, i seriously just dont get critics sometimes.  It was a bit like Gladiator with bows and arrows..which to me is a good thing!   Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett were great in it …there was decent action…and a few funny moments.

Mark Strong- one of my new favorite actors was in it too..sporting his Sherlock Holmes shaved head.  A couple of things that i liked that some may have missed.

If you saw Kingdom of Heaven (one of the best and most underrated films ever from Ridley Scott), you remember at the end Richard the Lion heart shows up…well this Robin Hood is the story that kicks off when he returns to England..its the backstory of Robin Hood really before he becomes the outlaw.

The cast was great..although William Hurt was completely underrused..he is always great..and could have used more screen time.

My only real critque is that in the beginning part, its a bit hard to follow between the jumps to diff cities..and following the early part of the story due to the text narrative etc.

Go see it..enjoy…forget about the critics
