Se t in th e 12th cen­tury, this ver­sion of the oft-filmed t le, from di­rec­tor Ri­d­ley Scott, tells of how Rus­sell rowe’s (pic­tured left) Sir Robin Longstride, a hero in the Cru­sades, re­turns to Eng­land and soon finds him­self be­com­ing an avenger for the per­se­cuted and down­trod­den of Not­ting­ham. But af­ter learn­ing of a sin­is­ter plot put in mo­tion by Sir God­frey (Mark Strong), Robin and his band of merry men leap into ac­tion in Sher­wood For­est to avert a war with the French. With Crowe’s force­ful por­trayal of the no­ble thief, the ev­er­re­li­able Cate Blanchett as a feisty in­car­na­tion of Lady Mar­ian and some star­tling bat­tle scenes, this is Hood as you’ve never seen him be­fore.
