Oh Look, Another Robin Hood Movie

I know, Robin Hood is an iconic story that people forever enjoy. It makes sense why Hollywood takes so many cracks at the character. Is it too much to ask that they try something a little bit original, though? Or at least fun?

This latest version of the character resembles exactly what you’ve seen before, not just with Robin Hood but movies of this ilk. He’s still the famous archer robbing the rich to help the poor. Looks you have the typical Sheriff of Nottingham. His Merry Men are here, with Jamie Foxx playing Little John. The movie also looks a lot like your typical gritty “fantasy” movie these days. You know, lots of black costumes and dark sets with washed colors.

At least try for something funny like¬†Men in Tights. It also didn’t help that I’m not buying Taron Egerton here. He doesn’t come across at all as a charismatic robber-lord. He looks like your typical uninteresting character in a movie like this.

Perhaps I’m being harsh, but I can’t help wondering why this movie is being made. Are there people reading this who were really intrigued by the trailer? I’d love to hear why. I’m certainly not trying to sit here and dismiss the movie as bad based off one trailer. I just don’t see anything in the trailer worth going to see. It was the definition of “by-the-numbers.”

But I’d love to have someone convince me otherwise. Please do so in the comments below if you’re so inclined.
