Robin Hood

So the new Robin Hood is Russell Crowe. Seems like one comes along every few years. I enjoy Crowe's acting, but I think he's a little long in the tooth to fit my image of the "Take from the rich, give to the poor" rogue.

In fact, thinking back over the various actors portraying the Hood, I'm not sure anyone can fill Errol Flynn's tights.

  1. Russell Crowe, the supreme alpha male, is fine as an archer of the period--, but as ROBIN HOOD, uh uh. With aplogies to Mr. Crowe, nobody, in my opinon, will ever fill Errol's feathered cap. Must say, however, I did enjoy this version of Marion. And the plot was interesting (as prequel-esqeto the Robin we know dashing about Sherwood Forest),if a little too much Gladiator in tights.
