Movie Info & Cast
This latest take on the exploits of Robin of Loxley is so much more than just another tale of robbing from the rich to give to the poor. Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) plays the battle-hardened Crusader known as Robin Hood as he stages an adrenaline-pumping revolt against the corrupt English crown. Jamie Foxx plays Robin’s Moorish commander, Little John, and Jamie Dornan plays his compatriot, Will Scarlet. The cast also includes Eve Hewson as Maid Marian, Tim Minchin as Friar Tuck, and Ben Mendelsohn as the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Did You Know?
- Jack Huston, Jack Reynor, Dylan O'Brien, and Nicholas Hoult auditioned for Robin Hood before the role went to Taron Egerton.
- The set shows St. George's Cross in abundance (on site observation), which was only used in the British navy (during the reign of Prince/King John), and not adopted as a flag until a century later.

- Marian: If not you, who ? If not now, when ?

The couple I sat next to summed it up rather nicely; "Not the Robin Hood I was expecting. Lots of action. Wrong message. " The best word I can think of to discribe this movie is religio-political because it was very political in that it dealt with religion but the religion was all tied into politics and in the end whatever the story was supposed to be got completely lost in the poorly-executed religio-political muck. Cinematography is great. Score is great. Action scenes are good overall. I loved how they played with slow-mo and speed to create tendion. Production design feels like Bay and Aronosfky got together to see how many things they could blow up in a small English mining village in a two hour movie. There are literary fires exploding everywhere for no reason. First half of the movie was entertaining, then things just got weird. Stick with your pleasant memories of Disney's lovely animated forest animal Robin Hood and skip this mess.
Forget the original! This one is fast paced, action keeps you on the edge of your seat! Loved it! Fantastic acting! A must see!
Grimly upbeat rather than merry, and relentless rather than frenetic, the film’s gritty zest is splashed across the screen with momentum, but also to the point of overuse. It serves a late heist set piece well, yet wears thin in a sea of training, thieving and fighting montages elsewhere.
Mendelsohn's villain is boringly one-note, Eve Hewson's Marion uses an incongruous Yank accent and always looks as though she's just stepped out of the makeup trailer, F. Murray Abraham swans around in fancy cardinal's vestments looking sinister and Foxx seems pissed off that he's not somewhere, perhaps anywhere, else. As for Egerton, he's a boy doing a man's job.
Rife with stereotypes, a terrible script, and odd “300”-esque cinematography that just doesn’t fit, this is not only a film nobody asked for, but also one that nobody should be forced to endure.
