REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

“..What this Robin Hood lacks in fun it makes up for in epic sweep..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3.5 of 5

“..this is a summer blockbuster..”
by Sean O'Connell [Filmcritic.com]
“..Robin is not "Hood" at all..”
by A.O. Scott [NY Times]
1.5 of 4

“..Robin Hood is so stripped of colour as to be almost black-and-white, and it's almost devoid of humour..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
3 of 4

“..Ridley Scott's reimagining of the legend of Robin Hood has more heft than it does humor, more soulful brooding than snappy thrust-and-parry retorts..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
3 of 4

“..it's a brawny reimagining of a beloved old myth, a period popcorn movie turned out with professionalism and gusto..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
2.5 of 4

“..choppy and there's a sense that a lot - perhaps too much - resides on the cutting room floor..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
2 of 4

“..an unnecessary and wrong-headed reboot..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
Review rate : C-

“..an origin story, a prequel to the legend, which is why it contains virtually none of the famous and invigorating scamp-of-the-woods mythology..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
2.5 of 4

“..a torpid action movie about land reform with the exhausted quality of material so thin you can see right through it..”
by Duane Dudek [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel]
Review rate : B-

“..a sober, impressively staged period drama and battle epic..”
by Gary Thompson [Philadelphia Daily News]
3 of 5

“..a blockbuster mostly stuck in the stockades..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
3 of 4

“.."Robin Hood" turns out to be, despite impressive battle scenes and countless horses, an actor's showcase..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]
2.5 of 4

“.."Robin Hood" is sturdily outfitted, but it's embarrassing to spend so much money and leave the swash unbuckled..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
3.5 of 4

“.."Robin Hood" is head and shoulders above the sort of lightheaded epics Hollywood typically offers during the summer season..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
3.5 of 4

LATEST REVIEWS

THE ONE I LOVE :

“..so is this terrific movie..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KINK :

“..the movie often feels like a full-length ad for a great workplace, which just happens to stash whips and chains in the stationery closet..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS :

“..overall, Leprechaun: Origins is awfully disappointing, and offers little insight as to how this prequel fits into the Leprechaun world..”
by Kalyn Corrigan [Shock Till You Drop]

ARE YOU HERE :

“..there's no sign of the crisp, knowing writing, compelling narratives or sublime character development that are Weiner's hallmarks in this tepid and tentative story..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

CAM2CAM :

“..falls spectacularly short for the genres it hopes to pander in: slasher pic, soft-core, travelogue..”
by Daniel M. Gold [NY Times]

WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL :

“..When the Game Stands Tall fumbles in several ways, failing to make enough of a connection to convey its inspirational message..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR :

“..Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you've had in years. It's neither high art nor noir, but it's what a Sin City film should be..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

MAY IN THE SUMMER :

“..the broader truths in Dabis's screenplay, as does its smart treatment of the region's proximity to armed conflict..”
by Abby Garnett [Village Voice]

WATERCOLOR POSTCARDS :

“..we've got a quality film more than competently made, and if you like romantic dramas with a taste of redemption, and closure, then Watercolor Postcards is a strong example of the genre..”
by Mark Bell [Film Threat]

JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE :

“..the send-up is sometimes funny but mostly boring (like the show itself)..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
