So I gave in to temptation and went out and saw this tonight. I think even the Disney fox character would lift his hind leg on this version. Out of all the Robin Hoods, this has got to be the worst.
It's one of those movies that I tried to park my brain at the door and enjoy but it just wouldn't let me. I'm sorry but hearing Robin Hood utter the words, "Wealth redistribution" really made me wish Douglas Fairbanks would rise from the grave and vanquish the little millennial twit.
Can it really be a Robin Hood movie without mention of King Richard? Sean Connery and Patrick Stewart surely do not approve.
Not usually a grammar Nazi, but Robin Hood done in modern American English with contractions and slang, really? At least Kevin Costner tried to fake a british accent.
WTF is up with magazine fed repeating crossbows? Cool, but more historically inaccurate than Errol Flynn wearing green tights.
When did Little John become black?
Then there's Lars Anderson appearing in the credits as an, "Archery Advisor" with scenes in the movie looking exactly like some of his YouTube videos. Great, now I'm going to have kids coming into the range trying all kinds of stupid stuff with a bow.
Lastly, can it really be a Robin Hood movie with out a split arrow scene? To those of us in the archery community this is sacrilegious. Split arrows are even named Robin Hoods. It's like Smokey and the Bandit without a Trans Am, Dirty Harry without a Smith & Wesson Model 29, or the Lone Ranger without a mask.
My daughter can deflate your daughter's soccer ball.
On the point of the lone ranger, i wish we could get a movie about Bass Reeves..
As for R.H. even the trailer looks like ass.
I skimmed an article about what a huge bust this movie is. The comments were pretty much universal in ripping it, scathing to say the least. From the trailers I've seen, this POS looks unusually insulting and offensive.
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun.
Nobody uses swords. They all just use longbows for close up combat.
It was ANTIFA the movie.
They drew a lot on the current conflict in the middle east, and then the domestic unrest at home. Notice the shields the sheriff's men carried, they were shaped more like modern riot shields than medieval round shields. If you look at the crusaders, how they wore their vests and carried their bow's it was very similar to US troops down range. I don't recall robin being drafted in the book and IIRC Robin was made an Earl upon the return of King Richard.
Plus, they only showed Sherwood forest at the end and there was no mention of the King's deer and poaching.
As soon as I saw it had Jamie Foxx I was out.

Funny you should mention ANTIFA. When I saw the trailer on TV, I told my husband that the crowd scene looked like an ANTIFA mob.

I don't think the millennial edition would accurately state that Robin Hood was stealing from

outta the oven!
The trailer made it look like a modern era movie set in a medieval time frame but at the same time contemporary?
I decided to pass on this one. Here's Monty Python's take on Robin Hood:

Well they had those sets and costumes left over from the really bad King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, you know the one where they had elephants and black guys basically roaming across England.

How many times is this story going to be regurgitated back up on the screen?
