ROBIN HOOD (M)

AL­WAYS DRAWS A LONG BOW, BUT OF­TEN LACKS AIM, UK-US, 114 MIN

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - MOVIES -

This umpteenth run-through of the an­cient Robin Hood le­gend (spoiler alert: he robs from the rich, and gives to the poor) gets a reck­less remix­ing for mod­ern au­di­ences. Now a sub­ver­sive man of the peo­ple, Robin (Taron Eger­ton, the cheeky up­start from the Kings­man flicks) plots his re­venge against the evil Sher­iff of Not­ting­ham (Ben Men­del­sohn hav­ing a grand old hammy time) while win­ning back his ex-girl­friend Maid Mar­ian (Eve Hew­son) from the clutches of her new boyfriend (Jamie “Fifty Shades” Dor­nan). The ac­tion se­quences have a wacky in­ten­sity that might win you over some­times, but a scrappy, pappy story will lose you over and over again. Costars Jamie Foxx.
