Ridley Scott and Russel Crowe were talking about making this flick for years and some of rumors were rather intriguing (Russell Crowe would play BOTH Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham!). But honestly, was any of us really expecting yet another movie about this 'iconic' character? Not really... They chose a rather grim look and atmosphere but the whole thing was never spellbinding. It was still watchable though. Basically, there were some good things and some not so good things about this flick. Good things : Russel Crowe gave us a nice perfomance and Ridley Scott provided a very good directing as usual. Also, it was interesting to try a more gritty realistic approach on this legend. Not so good : the story was never really very and honestly, nothing really fascinating was going on in there. To conclude, it was not a masterpiece but a movie directed by Ridley Scott is always worth a look in my book.
