A good soundtrack establishes how you FEEL during the scenes and are especially important to the finale of the movie. Interesting sets can make the dullest movie more enjoyable. And a good premise combined with good acting can enable you to suspend disbelief in the wackiest movies- can make you believe in elves and dragons for a short time. Just saying-throw the handcam away....or give it to a family with a kid and get back to REAL cinema where the sum of each artists work is revealed in the whole.Anyone that makes movies any other way is wasting their time and yours.
stupid to watch or depressing enough to make you want to open a vein.I ------- made fifteen minutes in this movie before turning it off. My grandkids ======= would have done a much better job. Anyone that said this ridiculous ---------- drivel was funny had to be getting a salary from it. I've seen stupid ------- Aussie comedy before but this was the worst I have ever seen. Some will ------- get defensive about this review and say 'it's just not for American ----------- audiences....well, too right, mate....even stupid Americans would find ----------------- this crap tedious.It wasn't worth ten lines but someone had to tell the ------------- truth.
As an expert archer Robin Hood would not have been a knight but rather a yeoman and this insight set the flavor for Scott's version. And while the battles might not have been historically correct it IS true that France suffered it's greatest defeat to England due to the use of the longbow decimating the flower of French knighthood. All in all an interesting take on an old legend. Some will like it....some will prefer the traditional version. If anything Scott crafted a much more believable tale with more human and realistic characters.
If the movie industry wants to whine about pirating their product they should be more careful about allowing director's to turn classic characters into something from the Cosby kids and, in the case of V for Vendetta, dystopic and disturbing anti-heroes into crusaders for gay rights. The fact that these men lack the imagination to do any thing more than corrupt the work of others should determine their suitability to choose their subject matter.
