When's the sequel coming out? Or as I suspect it'll never see the light of day which makes the whole exercise of making Robin Hood Begins a bit redundant.

That's exactly my problem with it, especially when you take into account the ages of those involved.

I love this Robin Hood version, much better than the cringe worthy Kevin Costner effort, and thought that Sir Ridley done an excellent job! Crowe was great in the lead, okay his accent did waver but he was a travelling knight in the crusades so who's to say that his accent wouldn't be like that? The merry men were great too and I thought Cate Blanchett was an excellent and fiesty Marion.
Mark Strong was suitably unlikeable and as excellent as ever as the two faced Godfrey and the action scenes were very well made. Some people, probably one's without much imagination and patience who's idea of an excellent film is something like the brainless 300, hated this and thought it was boring. Maybe they were expecting Gladiator of the Hood?
I was hooked from start to finish and am proud to say I own the excellent directors cut on Blu-ray. 9/10

Been meaning to see this.
And I agree,I never really got into 300 (people really wouldnt be surprised by that I guess).Though I am a big Frank Miller fan.

Yeah Frank Miller, as a graphic novel writer, is one of the best and I love Sin City, can't wait for the sequel! I just thought 300 was a no brainer and far too comical for a film that is supposed to be about one of the biggest battles in history, I much prefer my historical battle films to have a more historical and authentic feel to them with characters that you can warm to. Films like Gladiator, Braveheart, Kingdom of Heaven, Robin Hood, Ben Hur and even Ironclad ( which was slated by some critics).

Given that Ridley Scott is being discussed a lot lately due to Prometheus being out i thought is bump this thread.Iv only seen this film once and didnt like it all that much.However, Ridleys directors cuts tend to be an improvement and can anyone out there in the know tell me if the DC of this is an improvement in any way? Im willing to give this movie another look on blu ray.

Well ill be watching the directors cut again with the commentary tomorrow, so will post my thoughts on that. Just done Gladiator extended cut with commentary tonight. Going on a bit of a Ridley Scott bender (oo-er) since prometheus, just interesting to see how good some of his movies actually are (again).

For the record i think the directors cut of RH is indeed better. Not nearly as good as KOH DC which is just immense.

As an origin story it was alright. I love Russell Crowe but I felt like I didn't get enough of him in this movie.

I take it that a sequel isn't even on the cards now, despite talk of it at the time, I wonder will Prometheus go the same way?

The DC introduces the kids in the Forest a bit more. It's only 15 mins or so, but I enjoyed it a lot more than at the cinema. (See the Complete Ridley Scott thread over in Lists.)

Certainly more than Body of Lies, which I place just above 1492 in the Scott rankings.

Body of Lies ABOVE 1492?!?!?!

Am I the only person that thinks 1492 is an excellent film?

I think "You're weird" wasn't based on just this one opinion regarding 1492

From what I remember, I really liked this film. Very solid action set pieces and Crowe looked (though perhaps didn't sound) the part.

I rewatched this on Sunday morning and really enjoyed it. This is the first time i really enjoyed it. I'm talking about the two and a half hour Director's Cut. I mean it's no Gladiator of course but it is a well made, well acted movie with gorgeous visuals and great production design. I think Oscar Isaac is really good as the King too.

Started to watch it for the first time when it showed up recently on one of the Sky movie channels. After about 40 minutes I gave up and put on the 1938 Adventures Of Robin Hood.

Did I really have the Robin Hood "Riding through the glen" music whistled at me in school corridors, for this shit?

And this is coming from someone who's now seen about 6 versions of this cinematic tale, and liked the Costner version too.

Have you seen The Muppet episode in which they stage Robin Hood? If they turned that into a film it'd easily be the best version

It would certainly be preferable to Scott's piece of junk. As of now, however, I still rate the 1938 version as far and away the best, with the Douglas Fairbanks one running it a (fairly) close second.

As I recall, Lynne Redgrave is hilarious in it.

It's not a very memorable movie at all - I actually had to check IMDb to remind me the plot.

It's watchable, but not very good.
