Robin Hood by Ridley Scott, 2010 (PG-13)

With Russell Crowe (American Gangster, The Next Three Days), Cate Blanchett (Bandits, Hanna), Max von Sydow (Le Scaphandre et le Papillon, Shutter Island, Intacto), William Hurt, Mark Strong (Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy), Oscar Isaac (Drive, The Bourne Legacy, Agora), Danny Huston (The Conspirator), Dame Eileen Atkins (Wild Target, Beautiful Creatures), Mark Addy (Barney's Version), Matthew Macfadyen

The story of an archer in the army of Richard Coeur de Lion who fights against the Norman invaders and becomes the legendary hero known as Robin Hood. When Robin happens upon the dying Robert of Loxley, he promises to return the man's sword to his family in this big-budget twist on the classic tale. There, Robin assumes Robert's identity; romances his widow; and draws the ire of the town sheriff.

Hum... Interesting point of view, and rewriting of the history. Although I would be cautious with the timing of the romantic story, which is totally absurd. Other elements as well, to tell the truth. It is a too feel good movie to be serious, and at the same time, does not try to be funny, so we make fun of it instead. The hyper-realism makes its point, aside from that, and the scenes are well taken care of esthetically.

What you will learn from the movie: Richard Lion Heart died in a small town of France named Châlus. Read about the new movie of Ridley Scott "Prometheus".
