What did you think of ROBIN HOOD? I haven't seen it yet, due to the mixed reviews.
I think it's better on a second viewing and I'll tell you why.
When I first went in I expected/assumed the story would be in line with the traditional Robin Hood
story. Therefore, my first reaction was displeasure. I think I gave it a C+/B-
in the grading thread at the time.
The movie ends with what I'd call a setup and entrace into the traditional Robin Hood lore. So, knowing how the movie unfolds ahead of time I was able to enjoy it as the movie it was without strictly comparing it to other RH stories, largely cause its not trying to compete with those renderings.
It ends where other RH tales begin and gives it's own possible interpretation of how the legend came to be. Keep that in mind going in, which I didn't know, and you may just like it. So my opinion on it now is more of a B+
type movie grade.
