Film: Robin Hood

three star Robin Hood 2010
We'd both had a really busy and stressful week. So what better way to chill-out, than to go to the cinema!

We saw the new Robin Hood film starring Russell Crowe.

All-in-all, not a bad film, it felt very gritty and realistic (apart from the scenes of the landing craft on the beaches!!) - but not as good as Gladiator. For me, it didn't quite hit the mark because the story seemed so pedestrian, and it lacked strong definitions of who the good and bad guys were. We're told the story is closer to the real story of Robin - but that just made it a boring film in places!
