There was a time when Ridley Scott's name stood for quality. Well this is quality eye candy. I looks great and the idea behind it, of how Robin Hood came to be, is excellent. Much of the acting is first rate, as per usual Max Von Sydow is superb and if only Cate Blanchett had put on some weight, she would have been the best Maid Marion ever. But there's something deeply wrong with the film. Its supposed to be set in the final year of the 12th century and beginning of the 13th, yet in so many ways it feels a historical hotch potch. In places there appears to have been so much attention to detail, yet then something occurs that is so out of keeping with the time that it makes you cringe. It is revealed that his father was the effectively the first trades unionist, WHAT!!! His father is martyred for the cause,while a younger Max von Sydow looks on smiling inanely, despite supposedly being a fervent supporter!!! Then, at the end, with the battle scene with the French, history is finally put to bed with a warm glass of milk and a paracetamol and out comes fantasy that Conan the Barbarian would be proud of. To add insult to injury, there finally comes the contrived reason for Robert/Robin's fall from grace and being declared outlaw, which is gob smacking in its stupidity. With John on the throne there were dozens of plausible reasons for our hero to be declared a wolfshead, but King John not being cheered by his army after a victory over the French, during which he was in the thick of battle and showing great bravery, but Robin was, by far the worst. This could have been a good film, maybe even a great film, the start was so, so promising, but the modern demand for action over story and authenticity, plus a horrendous, contrived story about his real father, I found ruined it.
