Robin Hood

This film reminded me of three different films: King Arthur, Braveheart, and of course, Gladiator.

King Arthur: Because Russell Crowe looked like Clive Owen. No, just kidding. Because this is a prequel. Kind of like how Arthur became King of Britain. Or how Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader.

Braveheart: Because Russell Crowe looked like Mel Gibson. Kidding. Because this was set in England. And apparently, Braveheart's King Edward Longshanks was the grandson of King John, who was King Richard the Lionheart's brother.

Gladiator: Because Robin Hood looked like the Spaniard. I'm not kidding. And of course, because this was helmed by Ridley Scott, who also directed Gladiator.

I loved this film for seven different reasons: Ridley Scott + Russell Crowe + Cate Blanchett + Mark Strong + Malarkey from Band of Brothers + minimal use of CGI + a different take on the Robin Hood legend.
