This was a classic case of the DVD cover being vastly better than the movie itself. The DVD cover looked absolutely great and from it Robin Hood: Ghosts of Sherwood with decent execution had potential to be a guilty pleasure at least. However, the promise it initially showed was completely squandered by terrible execution all round to the extent that it is far too amateurish to remotely pass as a guilty pleasure.
Robin Hood: Ghosts of Sherwood is badly made for starters. The scenery is alright and the cinematography reasonably good but with such disjointed and confused editing and very drab lighting it was difficult to enjoy either. The music is completely overblown and a long way from rousing, in fact a lot of it is a monotonous bore. Further hindered by erratic sound quality, sometimes overbearing and sometimes distant, all the time drowning out the dialogue. Not that the dialogue is worth hearing, because it high in cheese and low in wit and fun and so awkward in flow that it sounds like it was improvisatory. The story is equally disastrous, too thin to sustain the running time and too many scenes like irrelevant padding, if you are looking for any entertainment or excitement both are nowhere in sight.
It is also interminably dull, the movie is less than two hours but feels like an eternity. The action is incredibly lazy in choreography and have no suspense or fun whatsoever, actually on par with poorly executed action from an Asylum movie and even worse. The direction is stunning in how inept it is, while the characters are devoid of any engaging likability or personality, almost like human robots. The acting across the board is stiff with line delivery that reads of just reading their lines or last minute learning. Overall, as much as I hate ragging on movies and try not to be too hard on low-budget movies, taking into account the inevitable flaws and what to expect, but Robin Hood: Ghosts of Sherwood was really pathetic. 1/10 Bethany Cox
