...but to be fair, I slept through most of it. I'm curious as to how Universal got the exhibition industry to agree to the 7 month running time of the movie. I was expecting to see snow on the ground when I left the theatre.
Isn't the Robin Hood legend supposed to be a swashbuckling good time? I know this was technically a prequel, but come on, it's still Robin Hood. Lighten up a little bit.
I feel like the whole project was ill-conceived, anyway. I picture a sombre lunch meeting where Russell Crowe looks at Ridley Scott and says, "Remember Gladiator?"
Scott says "Yeah, those were some good times."
Crowe perks up a bit, "Let's do that again..."
"Well, we can't just make the same movie. Can we?"
They sit in silence, picking at the remnants of their meat lunch. Suddenly a weight is lifted as Crowe comes to an unfortunate realization.
"Why not?" says Crowe.
... and out of that meeting we got Robin Hood.
