Robin Hood

(Ac­tion, Ad­ven­ture)

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Wellbeing -

Var­i­ous forms of this en­dur­ing folk hero have been around for more than 700 years, and this year sees the clas­sic tale reimag­ined with a modern make-over. Pro­duced by Leonardo DiCaprio, this ac­tion­packed ad­ven­ture has a dis­tinct glossy mu­sic video vibe. Warhard­ened Cru­sader Robin Hood (Taron Eger­ton), with the help of his Moor­ish com­man­der, Lit­tle John (Jamie Foxx), mount an au­da­cious re­volt against the cor­rupt English crown.

Gritty bat­tle­field ex­ploits, mind­blow­ing fight scenes, and a time­less ro­mance trans­form this re­make into a his­tor­i­cal su­per­hero block­buster. The new Sher­wood For­est is full of au­to­matic weapons and fash­ion­able bat­tle ar­mour. Jamie Dor­nan plays Will Scar­lett, Robin Hood’s half-brother, Eve Hew­son is Maid Mar­ion and Ben Men­del­sohn, the snarling Sher­iff of Not­ting­ham.
