robin of the hood.

Sunday, December 19, 2010

I haven't been visiting the cinema frequently lately. Mostly because I thought this year had very low-quality movies released, but I was wrong. As I said, I haven't been going to the cinema that often and I guess I missed out on a few good movies.

Robin Hood (2010)
Ridley Scott
Stars: Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett and Matthew Macfadyen
Genre: action, adventure, drama

One of the good movies this year happened to be Robin hood. I still remember the joy watching Robin Hood, played by Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman as Azeem. And I always loved the Disney version of Robin Hood. However, this time it's not an original movie, it's and adapted story. The have been many sequals and adapted movies lately, which are tiring. It would be fun watching an original movie for once!
But for this time, I have been very wrong. The story of this version was very original and of course you can only expect the best acting from Russel Crowe. Many people believe him to be an a--hole (I don't know and I don't care), but he is a great actor! I also liked Cate Blanchett, she is such a classy lady, no matter what.
What I really liked about this movie is that the story was rather simple actually, yet original. The movie was good from the beginning till the end. There weren't too many dramatic scenes or too many fighting scenes, the movie had a very good structure. It wasn't too serious either, there were a lot of jokes in the movie. The characters where very lovable too, I guess.
And I must be honest, this was kind of a gladiator-like movie. But I did not mind, Gladiator was (and still is) one of the best movies ever. However, this movie was less serious and dramatic as Gladiator, so it's not really comparable, but Robin Hood and Maximus are comparable characters.

Overall I think the movie was great and definitely fun to watch. If you haven't seen this movie yet, I recommend you do.

I thought the first 10 minutes of the movie wasn't up to much but it quickly picked up, overall was a enjoyable watch. Though it was still difficult to render Russell Crowe becoming a considerable younger Robin Hood, but I think he pulled it off.
