Trailerama: Robin Hood

December 15, 2009

Director Ridley Scott’s fascination with the thin line between civilization and barbarism continues in this obvious companion piece to A Good Year Gladiator. This isn’t going to be half as fun as Errol Flynn’s version of the medieval legend, which Scott has winnowed down to a simple good vs. evil slow motion stomp-fest. Love him or hate him, Russell Crowe is capable of delivering the macho goods. Cate Blanchett’s cold front gives the peasants something else to complain about aside from moisture and starvation. It looks gorgeous, too. The script was worked on by Ethan Reiff, Cyrus Voris, and Brian Helgeland, who did a neat riff on the period in 2001’s A Knight’s Tale.
