I just feel kinda bad for everyone involved. It was clear that whatever was supposed to happen, was **tried** at. Very hard. But it did not work. _Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._

Meh. This is a big budget film that fails big at retelling a tale that's been told so many times before. After many aborted starts, I have watched this movie twice within the past year. I didn't watch it multiple times because it was enjoyable and I wanted to experience it again. I watched it twice because it was so unmemorable that I didn't remember that I'd already seen it. Or maybe it was such an awful experience that my mind blocked it from my memories. The most memorable line in the film comes as Marian discovers that Robin is the Hood. "You call that a disguise!?", asks Miriam, referring to his hood which has become the public symbol of his thieving. To which Robin replies: "Well, it fooled everybody else!" I ask "You call this entertainment!?", but I won't wait for a reply. I'd write more details about this film, but I can't bear to think about it. I mostly write this review as a reminder to my future self to not waste further time my watching this movie a third time.
