Robin Hood goes back to basics

Robin Hood goes back to basics
Text size Aa Aa

Ridley Scott’s contribution to this summer’s blockbuster season is Robin Hood, which was shown out of competition as a curtain raiser at the Cannes Film Festival.

Word in the back row of the fleapit is that it’s Medieval Gladiator meets Elizabeth I – but apparently the intention was to take Green Tights Man back to his origins… like Daniel Craig did when he played Bond without the snazzy gadgets. So this is in fact Green Tights Man without the tights.

But hasn’t the Bond franchise just been shelved for the foreseeable future?

Hmm. Bond without the wisecracks, pratfalls and gags lasted just two outings… can this joke-free version of Green Tights Man do better? Place your bets, Gentlemen please…
