Movie Monday: Robin Hood
Posted by Rosepixie on January 11, 2010
So I saw a trailer for Robin Hood before Avatar in December, but I’m not sure which trailer it was. This might have been it. Clearly it was memorable.
Do you know what I got out of this movie? Not a whole lot. It appears to be Gladiator only not Roman, but it also doesn’t really seem to have anything to do with any version of the Robin Hood legend that I’m familiar with. Even the lines sound like Gladiator. And the trailer doesn’t offer much more than that comparison, so if you weren’t a big fan of Gladiator, I don’t think this trailer is really aimed at you (or me, since I didn’t like that movie very much).
This gives no indication of plot, pretty costumes or settings or cinematography (although it seems to have lots of bloody battles, if you like that sort of thing), or any actor but Crowe getting much screen time. In fact, if it weren’t for the fact that I’ve heard costume sites musing on this movie, I doubt I’d remember anyone else who was in it after seeing that trailer.
So personally, I think this trailer fails. I have no idea if the movie will be any good or not. Anyone else have any thoughts after seeing this trailer?
