Robin Hood

Since the guy hasn't seen a big-screen outing since Kevin Costner's goofy 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Hollywood figured it was time to reboot the hell out of Robin Hood. Ridley Scott (Gladiator) directs this lengthy "origin story" (sort of a 12th century Batman Begins) in which a Saxon archer (Russell Crowe) battles Norman invaders and woos a very liberated Maid Marion (Cate Blanchett). The battle scenes are impressive (and very Braveheart-esque) but the unfamiliar script falls flat. 140 minutes PG-13.
