5.0 out of 5 stars Another Story of Robin Hood Nov. 21 2010
By Marcia TOP 100 REVIEWER

Robin Hood [Blu-ray]
The art of story telling isn't dead. Since there is no archeological or historical evidence to prove Robin Hood (Russel Crowe) ever lived, it's always been a heroic saga of how one man can start a movement to defy tyrany.

First I'm impressed with the interlacing of fact with fiction. Fact, in the 12th century the Long Bow was the most powerful weapon ever used in battle. Making Robin a longbowman gives his power. There was still emnity between the Norman aristocracy who had only ruled since 1066 (this story takes place in 1199, the end of the fourth crusade) and the Saxons. King Richard was killed in battle after the crusade.

As usual he is presented as the ideal king despite the fact that like his mother, Elenore of Aquitane, he thought of himself as French, not English and only spent about 3 months ruling IN England. I went to his crypt in Roun Cathedral in Normandy, France last August. He is presented as a great king in order to contrast with John who continually raped and pillaged England and eventually, after 3 attempts was forced by his Barons to sign the Magna Carta (the doicument he burned in the scene where Robin is defamed). The original Magna Carta can be found in the British Museum in London, England.

The story of Robin being influenced by his father, a stonemason, who's charismatic personality influenced the aristocray to create the Magna Carta is fictional, but wait Robin Hood is a legend and he never existed anyway. I liked the way the story elevated Robin and the ties to not-really-a-maid Marion (who never existed either) presenting Cate Blancette in a strong female lead. Unlikely in the 13th century, but a great story none the less.

4.0 out of 5 stars As the arrow flies March 20 2012
By L. Power HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe have now done four movies together, the most notable of which is undoubtedly Gladiator, a fantastic story, and a brilliantly realised movie in the tradition of Braveheart.

With Robin Hood director and actor face a story and a character, portrayed many times in movies and tv series. Robin Hood has been played by actors as diverse as Sean Connery, Kevin Costner, Patrick Bergin and Errol Flynn. Even Mel Brooks did a series Robin Hood Men in tights.

Inevitably, if you are like me, you will make comparisons with your other experiences of Robin Hood. Bravely, it attempts to tell the story in a fresh and invigorating way, exploring the story before the story you already know.

Firstly, in this story Robin Hood is not yet Robin Hood, but Robin Longstride, a man of uncertain origin and we suspect less than noble birth, and we meet him on the battlefields of France, fighting the cause of King Richard. Robin calls out the King's reckless crusade, and Robin and his three friends end up in the stocks, and so the adventure begins.

Eventually, Robin and his men escape, and Robin assumes the identity of a dying nobleman, and agrees to carry out his last wish, which leads him to Lady Marion.

Usually King Richard plays as a heroic character still abroad, and Prince John remains a scheming prince. Here however John becomes the King, and undergoes somewhat of an unlikely transformation from weakling mamas boy Prince to tyrant King.

This presents a dilemma in accepting the story as given.

Apparently, Russell Crowe walked out of a BBC radio interview, when the British presenter, suggested his accent was Irish not English, Russell responding bollocks, and telling 'you got dead ears, mate.

Ridley Scott's 'Robin Hood' debuts on Blu-ray with a stunning, highly-detailed 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode (2.40:1). There are two versions: Theatrical Cut vs Director's Cut (which is 15 minutes longer)

Don't let the title Robin Hood fool you. It should be called Robin Longstride, because the movie tells the story before and how Robin Longstride becomes Robin Hood. It is similar to "The Hobbit", the prequel to the "Lord Of The Rings". At the end of the movie, it is stated "Now The Legend Begins..." Look for the "real" Robin Hood and his Merrymen in a subsequent sequel.

Video: The film's bleached-out colour palette comes across wonderfully. Details are not as punchy as I expected. The video has sharp images. The "arrow" battle scene was not as dramatic as that in the movie "Heroes". (4/5)

Audio: The DTS MA is wonderful with all the surround speakers plus the subwoofers having a great work-out. One can feel the arrow coming at you from front to back. Quite realistic. Dialogue is precise. (5/5)

For those viewers with anamorphic lens, I am glad to inform you that the subtitles are all within the "stretched" picture frame. Thank you Universal for listening to our complaints.

Overall, it was an enjoyable 156 minutes. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Robin Hood movie ever made Jan. 17 2012
By Melanie
Format:Blu-ray
This new way of looking at the Robin Hood story is amazing...... my husband thought he wouldnt like it beccause he loved the classic with Kevin Costner but he ended up liking this one many times more. The story of a good, faithful, genuine, courageous and strong man, rare values actually.... It is awesome, not a must see, a must buy.
