Action / Adventure, Released in 2010, starring Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Matthew MacFadyen

When soldier Robin happens upon the dying Robert of Loxley he promises to return the man’s sword to his father. There, he assumes Robert’s identity, romances his widow, Marion and draws the anger of the town sheriff and King John’s henchman.

This is a different take on the traditional Robin Hood story. But one I really enjoyed, we thought we had a big plot twist figured out very early on, but we were wrong. Which is great, since we often figure things out before they tell us. I highly recommend this movie.
