    Sam,

    Frankly, I have zero interest in this film as I've long grown tired of Robin Hood remakes.

    Same here Robert, and the trailer for this film turned me off 100%. I seriously doubt I'll even bother to rent it.

    Sorry Sam!

    I don't understand the overall rating of 2, when nothing from the production to all the disc elements rated less than a 3.5? I seem to recall from somewhere that the overall rating is not necessarily an average, but it seems to defy logic.

    I picked up the 4K from Walmart. Will likely watch it next week.

    You missed the star rating. The movie itself is 2 stars out of 5. I scored it a production rating of 3.5 out of 5 because the movie and the disk both have high production value. The overall is not an average, and the production value and high AV quality were not sufficient for me to raise the overall rating above a 2. Everyone will rate things differently, this is how I see it =)

    Hard pass for me. Too flashy and generic looking.

    I found this very fun and enjoyable personally, and the visual style is first rate. The script dialog is the movie's main weakness, but everything else is much better than reviews imply if you ask me. I'm not someone who hates remakes on spec though, so... *shrug*

    I'm mostly on the same page with Sam's thoughts. The opening of the film tries to reframe the story as more than just a simple "steal from the rich to give to the poor" parable, into a more grandiose "oppressed rising up to overthrow their oppressors." I don't think it really ever reaches those heights, and doesn't really add anything new to the Robin Hood story itself.

    As a popcorn action romp, it's not bad. We enjoyed the action scenes and there was some humor, mostly from Friar Tuck. But as Sam said, it's really the origin story and set-up for a future franchise. Nothing is really resolved in this film.

    it's kind of a shame this was not released in 3D, as there seemed to be several scenes planned/framed for 3D presentation.
