It’s too long, and it’s more of a prequel to the familiar Robin Hood story we all grew up with, but I enjoyed this film. I can’t speak much to the history (I know Richard died in France but I don’t recall Philip invading the British Isles), but I was carried along by the various treacheries and betrayals that pepper the plot, and excellent action sequences (which you expect from Ridley Scott).  I didn’t find much chemistry between Crowe and Blanchett, so I tended to FF through those scenes.
