Trailer : Robin Hood (2010)


Ridley Scott returns to what he does best : historical epics. Following in the history spin-off tradition of “Gladiator” and “Kingdom of Heaven”, “Robin Hood” will probably be another risky move for Scott. “Kingdom of Heaven” flopped at the box-office, under the pressure of studio quarrels and hightened expectations. The Director’s Cut (extended by aprox. 1 hour) for that one mended many of its shortcomings and proved it was a worthy cinematic achievement (and one of my personal favourites). I hope “Robin Hood” won’t end up with a corrective DVD extended version. It certainly looks promising, but I would rather they didn’t use the “story of the man behind the legend” marketing strategy. “King Arthur” used that same approach and it was a terrible underachievement.
