I don't understand the negative reviews. This is a really fun movie to watch. Sure, you have to get used to the inaccurate costuming, but it's meant to be a modern take of a classic tale. Some fantastical stuff, but it's just Hollywood. Just enjoy the movie and forget about historical accuracy.

This was so bad it rates -5 stars. Horrible costuming and sets, looks like those old 60s period pieces where the woman had a ton of eye make up and beehive hair; completely unrealistic. Abysmal acting, laughable script, absolutely no continuity or interest. I couldn't make it longer than 20 minutes. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME with this mess.

Not interesting at all. No finesse. The horses were the best part of the whole movie.

This did not work for me. This is to be an old classic but it looks like they just got new haircuts. They are too clean. Just jumped out of the shower. Her make-up and hair too modern. Even the clothes are too modern for this theme.

"Overall, I enjoyed Robin Hood. I don’t think it was that great or anything. There was a lot of potential, but I don’t think the movie quite measured up to what it was trying to put out..."

"A Knight's Tale" is still the best movie about medieval Europe that incorporates some modern day ideas and pop music. It struck the perfect balance.
I liked that they attempted the farce of setting the usual characters within a medieval England which has a current day mindset. But, this attempt was a failure. The eggregious anachronisms were disruptive.
Beyond the updated production design, the movie was hollow and verging on boring.
I don't think that this movie will affect Taron's future. I think that he really likes acting and probably takes any and all roles offered to him.

it just seems so poorly put together and directed.
One scene Jamie Foxx will have his hand chopped off. The next scene you see him with both hands back handcuffed.
They pretend it's ww2 but with bows... they had a machine gun tower scene.... with bows.
They used ww2 squad tactics and pretended their bows were rifles. It's a real mess with decent visuals. Terrible director.

They wear modern clothes by accident sometimes (not a small thing like a watch, but an entire shirt!). And they pretend their bows are sharp swords.

Well, the narration says right at the beginning that this is not the story you have heard. I guess that is why they don't have to worry about authentic costumes, architecture or weapons. If you just pretend this happened in an alternate universe, there are some good fight scenes and it is kind of fun to pretend there was an integrated England.

I enjoyed this updated take on a well-known adventure classic. Lots of action, and decent performances made it worth the watch.

Robin and Marian. Seasons passed, their romance blossomed. They were young, in love, and that was all that mattered... until... the cold hand of fate
reached out for them. He stole from the rich and gave to the poor. It became a bedtime story. But listen, forget history. Forget what you've seen before. Forget what you think you know. This is no bedtime story. If stealing a few coins was all he did, all he was, Robin of Loxley would never have become... Robin Hood. I knew him when he was just another lord of the manor. A good life, an easy one. Born with everything, want for nothing. ... What he didn't know was... what we are born into ... isn't always who we are.

Let him live, I'll tell you what I know. Everything. He knows nothing. Me for him! I've been killing Crusaders all my life. My every breath is an insult to your God. Please!
===
Where is Marian?
-Look, things have taken rather a turn since you've been gone, Robin. After you died, the Sheriff seized Loxley Manor as collateral for his war tax and threw Marian out. And it's not just her. He's crushing us all with his war effort. Tolls, collections.
===
This war, all wars, and everything happening here, it's as old as time. Rich men getting richer. Men of power taking more power from the blood of innocents. Yours, mine, and my son's.
===
Stealing from the rich to give to the poor? He's taking the piss out of the whole damn natural order.
-Oh, you flatter him. He's a smash and grabber, nothing more. And hideously ugly, hence that ridiculous hood.

When did I lose your trust?
-Your way. All your politics. It's not changing anything.
===
I think he wants to be their martyr. So let's give him a fate worse than death. Revoke his church. Defrock him! And throw him to the streets. That should cut him a little deeper than any blade could.
===

The church does not consider the raiding of its treasury petty.
-Ah, he barely escaped, and he got away with nothing.
But what's dangerous is the audacity of his crimes. He's got our commoners
looking up, seeing hope. We want their backs bent and heads bowed. There's been whispers of revolt. Unchecked, those whispers will build into a roar.
===
You could tell how long the last beating was because the color of the welts would go from red to blue, to yellow. Finally, they would go to pink, and the skin would harden. And by that time, Loxley, you had to make a choice. You're gonna let them beat the strength out of you or they're gonna beat it into you.

If you want me to give up the thief, at least give me the respect and try and beat it out of me.
-No. You'd just die on me out of spite.
Humans are the only species that fear death. Not just the threat of it, but its finality.
-That's what separates us from the insects and the dogs. The Arab, however, doesn't fear death at all because your false prophet promised you the garden.
A man without faith. Lonely.
-Liberating.
Without judgment, no sin.
-Faith.
We stare death in the face with courage and honor.
-Really? Because I was told that your boy begged for his life right up until the moment that we took his head from his neck. Decapitation's a funny thing because the eyes keep seeing. The mind goes on trying to deny death. Even if it's just for a few more moments.

Fate plays its part. And it's the way of things that as one story ends... another begins.
===
Today, we face a threat from these barbarians in Arabia. They hate us... Our freedom, our culture, our religion. But today, they face The Near Enemy, which is our Crusaders, in the desert.
===
God isn't here, it's just me!
===
The sheriff will have all his Crossmen on that convoy. A legion of them, no doubt. Elite killers armed to the teeth, and the city streets so you can forget about the element of surprise. We'll be lambs to the slaughter. This is...
-Suicide, yeah, we get it.
===
Four years ago, I marched off to fight for a liar's cause. Left my heart, came home an heir to nothing. The question is what would you do to get back what's yours?
