THE LEGEND YOU KNOW. THE STORY YOU DON’T.
After serving in the Crusades, Robin of Loxley (Taron Egerton) returns home only to find his estate seized by the same man who forced him to leave in the first place, the Sheriff of Nottingham (Ben Mendelsohn). A retelling of the classic story that satisfied no one, in spite of desperately trying to appeal to a young crowd, even dressing the characters in modern-looking outfits. Action-filled fun for a hungover Sunday afternoon, but also juvenile and dumb, with a particularly hammy F. Murray Abraham.
