Robin Hood was NEVER a “socialist bandit practicing freelance wealth redistribution.” He was ALWAYS taking back from the TAX “collectors” (thiefs) and returning money to those who earned it. Even in the Disney film.

Unfortunately, the move is really, stunningly for a big budget film, extraordinarily bad. There is absolutely no character development, the script(and the cuts)bounce around so much one can barely follow the story, and at one point it appears that someone will soon be searching for a Private.

I can’t recall ever being so disappointed in a movie. All of the historical significance that might have been hoped for in the name of liberty is so badly presented, that it is hard to tell that it is there at all.

Really too bad.

The NYT hates Robin Hood, the movie: “This Robin is no socialist bandit practicing freelance wealth redistribution, but rather a manly libertarian rebel striking out against high taxes and a big government scheme to trample the ancient liberties of property owners and provincial nobles. Don’t tread on him!” (thanks David Hughes)

I’m even more interested in seeing it now.
