“Vengeance for you and jus­tice for my son,” seethes the Moor.

Robin Hood is a solid and well-ex­e­cuted romp, which is clearly in­tended as the open­ing chap­ter of a fran­chise.

Eger­ton copes ad­mirably with the phys­i­cal de­mands of the lead role and he catal­y­ses a gen­tly sim­mer­ing screen chem­istry with Hew­son, who is squan­dered as the sole fe­male char­ac­ter with a voice.

Foxx snarls his lines as the grief-stricken men­tor, who trans­forms Robin into a buff killing ma­chine via a slickly edited train­ing mon­tage.

Un­like its dash­ing hero, Bathurst’s film doesn’t hit all of its in­tended tar­gets but it comes close enough to en­ter­tain for al­most two hours. 1. Fan­tas­tic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindel­wald The Grinch Bo­hemian Rhap­sody Wi­d­ows
