Sherwood Forest's most famous resident has gotten a variety of screen treatments over the years, but Russell Crowe and his frequent director Ridley Scott take a decidedly mature approach to the saga with this latest iteration.
Robin arrives in Nottingham and falls for Marion ( Cate Blanchett), widowed by the death of his former commander, King Richard. Though Robin's men don't seem quite so merry this time, they're still present. Co-stars include William Hurt, Max von Sydow and Mark Strong ( "Sherlock Holmes"). DVD extras: four "making-of" documentaries; deleted scenes; digital copy of the movie. *** (PG-13 and unrated versions: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
