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

3 of 4

“..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

“.."Robin Hood" delivers change you can believe in..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

LATEST REVIEWS

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
