An engaging first hour, to the extent that you're almost fooled into thinking this could be that rarity these days; a really good Ridley Scott film. Unfortunately, the clichés are ladled on in the second half.
Anything distinctive about this take falls victim to scripting by committee, with the need to emphasise Russell Crowe's background as a significant plot point and culminating with Marion riding into battle. Still, some nice touches like the sidelining of the Sheriff of Nottingham. The score (again mostly in the first half) was decent.
