ekceli tak merancang pon nak tgk citer ni
since trailer dia tade la menggegarkan napsu sgt
lagipun aku tgk Russell Crowe sejibik mcm muka dia jadik Maximus dlm Gladiator
aku tade tebayang Robin Hood ekceli mcm ni kan
since aku rajin jugak layan cite2 berkenaan ngan legend ni
dari zaman aku kecit2 citer kat tv tu (Robin of Sherwood), muvi Sean Connery ngan Audrey Hepburn tu (Robin ngan Marian dah tua), even Robin Hood katun disney tu dan of course la Robin Hood Prince of Thieves
yg latter aku rasanya lapan juta kali dah tengok
Man in Tights tu je aku tak tgk sebab i hate slapstick comedies
baru2 ni ada satu citer tv BBC nye, tapi hero Robin Hood mcm cilake poyo prasan hebak
aku stopped only after first episode
so mula2 dpt tahu muvi ni kuar aku agak eksaited lah
walopon both leading actor actress Australian kan
accent akan tunggang langgang sket
tapi better la dari Kevin Costner kan wahahaha
cuma aku dpt tahu rating PG13
tade perang potong kepala darah mancut2 ke?
ekceli jalan cite dia agak unexpected
lain dari apa yg aku disogokkan slama ni
pasal camne Robin Hood became Robin Hood in the first place
byk la kelainan dari jalan citer yg biasa aku tahu
Robin Hood is actually Robin Longstride, yg tade kaitan pape pon ngan femili Loxley of Nottingham
dia ni org biasa2 je
askar biasa yg fought along King Richard masa perang
tapi instead of usual portrayal Robin ni sorg yg arrogant prasan hensem prasan hero prasan hebak gagah perkasa, dia ni mcm humble dan honest je budaknye
plus dia ni sgt gagah berani
dia nye ciri2 leadership awal2 lagi dah nampak
pastu sgt lah tunjuk dia ni skilled archer
in contrast ngan Kevin Costner nye version tak baper nampak sgt kan
so nampak lah dia ni mmg soldier lah
hebak segala segi
hensem lak tu
baik hati dan noble lak tu
jatuh cinte akuh
selain tu jugak
awek dia neh Marian, ekceli bukan dia nye childhood friend ke ape
Marian neh janda lak tu, dan dah tua bila depa sama2 jumpe
dia nye Merrymen pon tak wujud lagi
tapi dia ekceli jumpa geng2 dia mcm Little John ngan Will Scarlett dlm perang lah
Will Scarlett tu bukan Robin nye half-brother pon
overall citer ni sgt lah besh aku rasa
action perang dia pon
ada spy2 sket
part2 romentik pon besh
sebab chemistry between Robin ngan Marian sgt lah besh
Marian pon bukan spesis damsel in distress pekejadah
kicks-ass gak minah neh
Russell Crowe rambut dia mcm Maximus wakakaka
pastu Cate Blanchett nampak tua
tapi ok la, better than Sienna Miller (original cast) kene drop-out
since kataya dlm citer ni Marian kawen ngan Robert Loxley dia dah 'old maid'
kalo zaman dulo2, andartu ni kira dlm umo 20-an la kan
so bila jumpe Robin ni lepas 10 tahun husband dia gi perang, so dlm umo 30-an lah
agaknya depa buat Marian ni nampak ordinary looking mcm Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio tu ekceli tade la lawa glamorous ke ape, nampak biasa je, tapi lawa la jugak
ni pendapat aku je lah
kalo boh Sienna Miller aku rasa lawa sgt le plak
owh paling besh bila Robin nak gi perang dia kata "I love you, Marian" tu waaaaa... aku gi bantai gelak sebab hensem sgt
terkejut org depan
action perang dia pon besh
of kos la aku tak bandingkan mcm dlm scene The Return of the King ke, Attack of the Clones ke kan
tapi besh laa
tade nampak la Robin ni lah hero dia lah hebak dia la gagah perkasa dia la tikam lapan kali pon tak mati2
nampak biasa je
ada la ciri2 hero yg immortal tapi tade la melampau sgt
citer ni tade lagu2 yg besh ke mcm lagu Bryan Adams tuu
aku rasa beshhh
aaa tade la lagu2 romentik nehhh
last2 baru King John bodoh tu announce yg Robin Longstride ni outlaw sebab dia jeles Robin ni hero instead of him
pastu baru la wujud Robin Hood, Lady of Sherwood dan Merrymen.
owh tade sequel keeeeee
hensemnyaa Russell Crowe
bukan sebab dia hensem sgt bodi besh hunk gile babih ke
tapi dia bawak watak ni besh gileeee
muka nombo lapan okeh
sebab dia buat jadik hensem walopon tade la hensem
prasaan aku sama mcm aku tgk Gladiator
mcm waaaa my heroo
aku nak tengok lagi!!
Following King Richard's death in France archer Robin Longstride,along with Will Scarlett, Alan-a-Dale and Little John,decides to return to England. They encounter the dying Robert of Locksley,whose party was ambushed by treacherous Godfrey,who hopes to facilitate a French invasion of England, and Robin promises the dying knight he will return his sword to his father Walter in Nottingham. Here Walter encourages him to impersonate the dead man to prevent his land being confiscated by the crown,and he finds himself with Marian, a ready-made wife.Hoping to stir baronial opposition to weak King John and allow an easy French take-over, Godfrey worms his way into the king's service as Earl Marshal of England and brutally invades towns under the pretext of collecting Royal taxes. Walter tells Robin he knew his father,a freedom-fighter who hoped to unite the barons for a better society but Walter is killed by Godfrey after a raid on Nottingham. Robin rallies the barons and the king and thwarts the invasion,avenging Walter by slaying Godfrey. Sensing that Robin's popularity makes him a threat,John declares him an outlaw. Thus along with his friends,including his wife and her priest Friar Tuck, Robin joins other orphans and outcasts in the greenwoods where the legend begins.
- Filmmakers Bryan Singer, Sam Raimi, and Jon Turteltaub were all in contention for the directing assignment on this film.

- Before it was announced that Russell Crowe would play Robin Hood, both Christian Bale and Sam Riley were considered for the part.
- Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris's original script "Nottingham" turned the traditional story on its head by portraying the Sheriff of Nottingham in a more sympathetic light and Robin Hood as more of a villain. The script was extensively re-written by Brian Helgeland because director Ridley Scott wanted the Sheriff of Nottingham to be a more conflicted character. New rewrites were done by British playwright Paul Webb and later by Tom Stoppard, who reworked the story while the movie was already being filmed.
- At one point, Saoirse Ronan and Gordon Pinsent were attached to the project.
- At 45 Russell Crowe is the oldest actor to have played Robin Hood in a movie. Sean Connery was nearly 45 when he played a veteran Robin Hood in Robin and Marian (1976).
- Originally, Russell Crowe was set to play both Robin Hood and Sheriff of Nottingham. The idea was dropped.
- In response to criticisms that he was too old to play Robin Hood, Russell Crowe crash dieted before filming began.
- Eileen Atkins replaced Vanessa Redgrave. Redgrave dropped out, after the accidental death of her daughter Natasha Richardson.
- Crowe originally decided to grow his hair long for the role of Robin Hood. He wore wigs in Body of Lies (2008) and State of Play (2009) to hide his long hair. But shortly before filming began Crowe decided to cut it short.
- Philippe Vonlanthen was in talks to appear in this film after his role in Ridley Scott's American Gangster (2007).
- Rhys Ifans was rumored for the role of King Richard, but Danny Huston was cast.
- Before Sienna Miller was cast as Maid Marion, Scarlett Johansson, Emily Blunt, Angelina Jolie, Zooey Deschanel and Natalie Portman were considered. After Miller dropped out before filming due to production delays that caused scheduling conflicts, Annabelle Wallis, Rachel Weisz, Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Marion Cotillard and Charlize Theron were rumored to take over, before the part eventually went to Cate Blanchett.
- Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett and Rachel Weisz were, in that order, the three main candidates in consideration to play Maid Marian. After Winslet turned the part down, Blanchett was offered the role. Since she accepted, Weisz didn't get the offer.
- The film opened in the UK and USA on May 14th, 2010; Cate Blanchett's 41st birthday.
