The new version of Robin Hood arrives on DVD

Robin Hood

Robin Hood is one of the new DVD movies. The adventure story Robin Hood has been told and told in several Hollywood movies in the last 80 years. There were more than 30 Hollywood changes its story, including comic. The most recent big budget taking, horrible superproduction, Kevin Reynolds Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves (Kevin Costner, Miscasté) was released 19 years ago. In the summer of 2010, Russell Crowe and director of the film Gladiator, Ridley Scott, presented a 2010 version of Robin Hood. Are not we entertained? Any resemblance to the Gladiator Oscar winner is definitely not a coincidence. Scott and Crowe, who also collaborated on American Gangster, Network of lies and a good year, are determined to define their history of origin in the context of history. It is no easy task, considering the Robin Hood stories are mostly fictions as facts.

Scott leads us straight into the mud when we meet Robin Longstride Crowe, a soldier in the army of Richard the Lionheart (Danny Huston). His heir, Prince John, is a tyrant under the influence of Sir Godfrey, a French ally who encourages John to alienate his barons, among them William Marshall (William Hurt), and severely tax the people Who leave the king in misery.

Godfrey and Robin eventually become Godfrey’s enemies and aggression against Nottingham where Robin is convinced that dressing as a gentleman Robert Loxley sends to avoid the tax collector knocking on the door. Former Sir Walter Loxley (Max Von Sydow, fun, fragile and moving) I think it’s a wonderful idea, but the current widow of Robert Marion (Cate Blanchett) is horrified. But like all previous Robin Hood films, the love between Marion and Robin grows slowly at first, then with gusto. In addition to Robin and “Maid” Marion, we find Remeterla (Mark Addy), a beekeeping priest who is more concerned about equality on earth than being compensated afterwards; Robin’s partners in the crusade of King Richard, Little John (Kevin Durand) and Will Scarlet (Scott Grimes); And many other “Merry Men”. The traditional Robin Hood villain, Nottingham Sheriff (Matthew Macfadyen), is present, but his involvement is low and presents himself as dumb and ineffective.

This Robin Hood is smarter and entertaining muscle; It does not bring new life to a genre, such as Gladiator, Scott’s first association with Russell Crowe, but it’s a muscular reflex, from a lovely old myth, the old movie popcorn has with professionalism and enthusiasm. And Crowe, has a Robin who may lack the light of Errol Flynn (being the biggest cover-up ever) but has a presence and authority to make him forget everything about Kevin Costner.
