Took the boys to see the new movie with Russell Crowe as Robin Hood. Excellent movie, and some great longbow shooting scenes.

Any time I see that hail of arrows raining down on the intended targets, I am amazed at how deadly that tactic was. Truly the longbow was the original assault weapon. Plus i always love watching those crossbow shooters gettin their butts kicked.

This was a good flick, I highly recommend it.

I was planning on going to see it this evening but got caught up in shooting my bow and missed out on the times when I could see it and be back home by the time my wife got home from rocking little babies.

Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

Thanks for the review.

God bless,Mudd

Great flick. Thought it would be more about the bow though.

Saw an interview with Crow about the making of the movie...he shoots a 38lb. self bow (insert grunt here)and seemed quite proud of that. "Spent a few days shooting it before filming started"
So...he's got that going for him.

Went with the wifey tonight. We both really enjoyed it. No trashy sex scenes and usual Hollywood junk, just a very pleasant and tastefully done movie.

Crowe was great as always. Those lonbow scenes as the French made their amphibious landing were excellent. The action scenes were also not overdone, making it credible, except for just a few shots that I won't eloborate more on; for the benefit of those who haven't seen it yet.

I find this hilarious, considering people of those times could have possibly been shooting 4x that weight.

Really interesting.
A couple guys on another site I visit saw it and were thouroughly disappointed by the show.

I doubt I'll go see it. But then, I don't like Crowe and don't often go to the movies anyway.

I was gonna go tonight, but got held at work too late. Looking foward to seeing it.
Russel Crow was a close friend of the Crocodile Hunter, so I would imagine he is nay on hunting, but you never know..

Oh,And i noticed that too Guy.

Probably,because they are actors first and recent archers,with a bit of Training.Maybe their coach saw fit to start em light,to develope good form,so they would look like they knew what they were doing and could actually hit somethin with it.LOLI doubt they wanted to wait the time it took to build up to the weight that those early archers used.Im probly the worst at nitpickin a film to death at inacuracies,but Cmon guys,lets be practical.LOLIm not usually up in arms about any movie,especially when it deals with history of which im familiar.Im usually very dissapointed but,i saw an interview on Tv with Crow,promoteing the movie,and was impressed with his genuine enthusiasm toward the history and craftmanship,pertaining to early archery.I mean the Guy was Genuinely exicited about it and forced the cameraman to do a closeup of the bow as he described the difference between the sapwood and heartwood and the why of it all.I can tell the Guy may be hooked.

Me and the wife just saw it today. It was a real good movie, just wish it would have been more about them shooting instead of just the war aspect of it. But it did do it's job to tell the story up till, and why he became an outlaw.
I think the the next one will be more what I would like to see. Stuff like the guys just shootin' and havin' fun, you know "Merry Men" and all that kinda stuff. Some tournaments, and some good archery scenes instead of the war tactics of just letting waves of arrows darken the skies. It was good though, but I think the next will be more enjoyable. Hope so anyway.
