Mini Review - Robin Hood

Robin Hood (out May 13) isn't about a guy who robbed from the rich to give to the poor.  It looks at an earlier chapter in Robin's life.  We find out how he "came to be".  The slow introduction is redeemed by a strong second hour.  Sadly, the momentum is lost with a rushed, cliched conclusion. Max Von Sydow and Cate Blanchett my pick of the cast. Russell Crowe not so good in the title role. Grade: B.
