Things I liked:
*Acting- From the children and extras to the A-list actors, all who had a role in this film were superb.
*History- It wasn't a movie where they just dressed the part and spoke with silly accents. It's obvious when watching that they tried to remain as faithful to history as they could in all areas of clothing, scenery, language, dates, etc.
*Tone- This wasn't a Disney portrayal. I half expected Robin to be lighthearted, mischievous, and arrogant running around stealing from the wealthy and living a grand life in the forest. This version had a dark and dreary tone which matched the mood and events of the time.
*Action- They made Robin and the other archers good at what they did while still being human (unlike the fancy tricks performed by Legolas in Lord of the Rings).
Things I did not like:
*Action- The version I watched was the director's cut so perhaps it was longer than the theatrical version? In any case the beach scene in the end was just too long. By the time all the soldiers were united you already knew they would outnumber and win over the french.
*The Beginning- Again, maybe it has something to do with being the director's cut but the first hour was a complete drag. I was so bored and I kept saying to myself "why did I waste my money on this movie." I was literally about to turn it off but Robin reached Nottingham and the movie FINALLY became good. I nearly missed out on a great movie because of the drawn out boring first hour.
As for the plot other reviews lay it out better then I could. Overall I found it enjoyable.
