He was a young British chav, a funny likeable ski jumper, soon he is Elton John in Rocketman. But now, he conquers our home as the rebel Robin Hood on DVD and Blu-Ray.
ROBIN HOOD IN A NEW GUISE
Robin Hood is not a remake of the classical movies and stories. It’s a new interpretation of the old story. Even if director Otto Bathurst and author Ben Chandler placed the scene in the times of the crusades, the story, behavior of the characters and – especially – the outfits very modern.
TARON EGERTON – REBEL, MULTITALENT, SUPER STAR
Of course, Robin Hood isn’t a profound film. There were others, which dealed which the classical characters and history better. If you are interested in those films, we can recoomend Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves with Kevin Costner and the adventures with Erol Flynn.
However, Joby Harold’s and Otto Bathurst’s remake is an entertaining action film with very good actors.
Above all, Taron Egerton shows, that he will become the new super star of the 20’s of our century. He plays brilliant. His easiness, his charm, his humor… all this makes the movie worth-seeing.
Furthermore, Jamie Foxx presents a new interpretation of Little John. It’s a little getting used to, but, finally, it makes fun to watch that guy, how he coaches the young English rebel.
Alongside Taron Egerton, Eve Hewson takes care for the sex-appeal in the movie. As Marion, Robin’s wife and a self-confident, independent woman, she causes a stir.
