MOVIE SUMMARY
Academy Award® winner RUSSELL CROWE reunites with his blockbuster Gladiator director, filmmaking legend RIDLEY SCOTT, for the epic action-adventure Robin Hood. Joining with Oscar®-winning producer BRIAN GRAZER (A Beautiful Mind, American Gangster) and Oscar®-winning screenwriter BRIAN HELGELAND (L.A. Confidential, Green Zone), they tell the story of the legendary figure known by generations as "Robin Hood," whose exploits have endured in popular mythology and ignited the imagination of those who share his spirit of adventure and righteousness.


In 13th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and challenge the crown to alter the balance of power between the king and all of his subjects. And whether outlaw or hero, one man from humble beginnings will become an eternal symbol of freedom for his people.


Robin Hood chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard I's army against the French. Upon Richard's death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion (Oscar® winner Cate Blanchett of The Aviator, Elizabeth), a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life.


With their country weakened from decades of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies from within and threats from afar, Robin and his men heed a call to ever greater adventure. This unlikeliest of heroes and his allies set off to protect their country from slipping into bloody civil war and return glory to England once more.

    entered, I have my doubts about the film itself, but the team behind it is top notch

    Oooooo posh!

  • lulalah

    I love the Robin Hood story but I cannot stand Russel Crowe or Ridley Scott. I hated Gladiator. Can't see me liking this one. I hope I am wrong.

  • masonica

    Any film by Ridley Scott is worth seeing on the big screen. Really hope to win.

    Fingers crossed for this. :)

    I like the look of this for a remak-y type thing... but not as much as I like the look of A Team.. THAT looks savage.

  • michaela

    Entered, will definitely check this out as I loved Gladiator and I'm really curious where they'll go with this. Would be a nice break from all the essay writing I have to do :-)

    I would enter but Dundrum is quite a trek and if I won I gotta be honest I probably wouldn't bother. But hopefully I will get tickets to the Bill Hicks film.
