Most of the songs the characters sing or hum within the film are actual Medieval melodies. For example, the song Friar Tuck sings is set to the tune of a song called Bacche Bene Venies, from the 13th century Codex Buranus. See more »
I don't like action films, i don't like hack and slash but i love this.
For me every actor does a reasonable job and Alan Rickman is outstanding as the sheriff of Nottingham, the lack of a credible English accent is not a worry to me and the flexible use of locations is also not a problem. The story is great, the screenplay is wonderful with its lack of self-conciousness. All the elements of a great epic are there, love, hate, greed, honesty.
The anachronisms really add to the film, the action scenes are tremendous. And yes i like the arrow-cam.
Don't be cynical be nice, enjoy the ride.
