Russell ‘Grrr’ Crowe returns to our screens as classic British hero Robin Hood in Ridley Scott’s new film.
Maybe one day we’ll actually get an English actor to play him. Anyway, this version will follow the typical story of Robin fighting in the Crusades with King Richard then returning to merry old England to find that Prince John has ballsed everything up while they’ve been gone. Putting peasants under extreme taxation, Prince John uses sidekick Sir Godfrey to help him gain power and keep the country under his thumb.
With a little help from his band of merry men, Robin tries to fight back and restore England to it’s former glory. Cate Blanchett also stars as love interest Maid Marion but at least in Scott’s version she looks like she could kick some serious ass.
