ROBIN HOOD (M)
ALWAYS DRAWS A LONG BOW, BUT OFTEN LACKS AIM, UK-US, 114 MIN
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.
