    Robin Hood Analyze
    The Robin Hood movie I a pretty good but it was kind of hard to understand. I thought it was really well done and thought out. It’s not easy to make a Robin Hood movie these days, as the story has pretty much been run through the mill so much, you can’t find anything original about it anymore. This one, they tackled actual points in history that could have launched the myth we now know as Robin Hood. It was a good fresh take on an age old tale. Good acting, good script, and good visuals. the death of Richard Coeur de Lion, archer Robin Long stride returns to England to hold off an impending Norman invasion and, ultimately, to become Robin Hood.
    The theme of Robin Hood is a man Loxley who robs money from the rich and gives them to the poor and they falls in love with King Richards. Relation while he is on a crusade and his evil brother is in charge. The Directors are Étienne Arnaud and Herbert Blaché. The Writer is Eustace Hale Ball. The Stars are Robert Frazer, Barbara Tennant and Alec B. Francis.
    I thought the story was hugely entertaining and I’m not exaggerating when I say it has jumped the list to be my favorite telling of the Robin Hood legend. It was a joy to see how the classic characters all fell into their roles and unlike some modern origin retold. Stories it never felt contrived, or as if the pieces were being arranged with crude nudge and a wink at the audience. The flow was quite natural and the elements of the legend and the characters wove together beautifully thoroughly convincing me that this is the way they always should have come into being. Most of all I quite enjoyed the pulp style take on the characters, where the heroes are charming, fun and the reader genuinely enjoys spending time with them, while the villains are cruel, dastardly, and the pages turn from a desire to see them meet justice.
    Watson did a wonderful job of assembling the familiar myth in new and believable ways making the reader care about even the more minor characters and giving depth and value to the world that they live in. The footnotes are fascinating, providing a wealth of background information, but can still be safely ignored by anyone just wanting to enjoy the story.
