Not my review (I have been too busy to seek out a press screening). But here are some of the latest professional judgements. The general consensus seems to be that this is an borderline excellent, four-star movie, closer in style to Chris Nolan’s ‘Batman Begins’/'Dark Knight’ joints than the hokey camp of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
The Guardian: “This is strong stuff.” ****
Empire: “The mullet-free Robin Hood movie we’ve been waiting decades for.” ****
The Daily Telegraph: “What saves the movie, which is quite flawed but still Scott’s best in nearly a decade, is its majestic feel for the English landscape.” ***
Variety: “”Robin Hood” comes to resemble a medieval “Bourne” movie as it darts hither and yon from Nottingham to the northern coast of France”
The News of the World: “If 12th-century warfare didn’t look like this, it flamin’ well should have done.” ****
The Daily Mail: “Sir Ridley Scott makes a triumphant return to form with this magnificent epic.” ****
