Ridley Scott repeat his "Gladiator" formula by putting Russell Crowe in a general role where he fight war against tyranny and oppression in excellent choreographed war sequences. It would have helped this film had it simply been titled "Robin of Loxley" so that people can comprehend it lacks it's mythical aspect, but as the movie also have problems with it's historic aspect it falls apart and the romance feels cold.
So dull I honestly cannot remember a single thing about this film, Apart from Russell Crow's awful accent. Is it Welsh? Jordie? Clipped English? Yorkshire? Irish? Crowd's combative response to questions of this nature when promoting the film are both hilarious and sum up the problem with the film nicely.
Ridley Scott seems more far interested in politics and history than the legend of Prince of Thieves (the Crusades and slaughter of Muslims is vociferously discussed). Not much of a thief (more Maximus Decimus Meridius than Robin Hood), Russell Crowe grew his hair for this role then inexplicably cut it. The revisionism continues as he now fights not for the poor, but for freeeedom and liberty. An interesting failure.
