Ridley Scott's film is an introduction to the legend of everyone's favourite
outlaw and features some fine performances.
We join Robin in the battlefields of Richard The Lionheart's Crusades but this is the story of what happens when the skilled Archer returns to his homeland.
Saying more would spoil the story but if you have any interest in the character you will enjoy this film.
Crowe is in fine form and he is matched by Cate Blanchett as Marion, Mark Strong as Godfrey and overshadowed by the marvellous Max Von Sydow as Sir Walter Loxley.
Throw in a few good battle scenes and you've got all you need for a top notch summer blockbuster movie. It's my recommendation to kick off your summer season this year.
