Robin Hood

Russell Crowe as Robin Hood

The newest adaptation of our favorite thief and archer, Robin Hood, featuring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett is due for release this upcoming weekend. I’m still trying to decide if I’m excited about it or indifferent to the idea of another boring Russell Crowe film. I love the story of Robin Hood and usually love an action-packed period piece. However, anyone deciding to tackle the beloved story must face the comparison with the two best Robin Hood movies ever made:

Disney’s animated Robin HoodRobin Hood Men in Tights cast

If it can’t compare with Disney’s Robin Hood or Mel Brooks’s Robin Hood: Men In Tights, then is it really worth seeing?
