Robin Hood

Action Adventure


 

Robin of Loxley returns from war to find his love married to someone else and his hometown under the governance of a ruthless Sheriff.

"Robin Hood" attempts to revamp a classic tale for a new generation, with very little success. This film doesn't know what it wants to be, and the odd mishmash of genres makes it hard to care about anything as the plot seems to run away from itself. Strange characterisation choices, off-putting wardrobe decisions and over-acting from pretty much everyone involved do this movie no favours. Adding insult to injury, many of the seemingly well-choreographed stunts are hard to enjoy due to poor lighting choices. Hoodwinked.
