Action: A medieval era man returns from the Crusades and sets out to undermine and ultimately defeat the notorious Sheriff of Nottingham.
It's sometime during the medieval era and Robin of Loxley (TARON EGERTON) is an aristocrat who thinks he's found the love of his life in Marian (EVE HEWSON), but then learns he's been drafted by the Sheriff of Nottingham (BEN MENDELSOHN) to go off and fight in the Crusades in Arabia. Four years later, Robin is still a soldier and barely escapes with his life when an opposing soldier, Yahya (JAMIE FOXX), gets the upper hand, but loses his hand to the sword wielded by one of Robin's comrades.

Despite that attempt on his life, Robin tries to save Yahya's young adult son from being beheaded, but fails and gets an arrow in the chest and is shipped back to England as a result. Unbeknownst to him, Yahya stowed away on that ship and now informs Robin that he's selected him to assist in stopping the war effort.

And he says the way to do that is by stealing from the Sheriff who's taken to heavily taxing the locals to support the war (and line his own pockets), thus forcing most of them to live at the nearby mines. That includes Marian who, having been wrongly told that Robin was killed in battle two years ago, lives there with her husband, Will Tillman (JAMIE DORNAN), and objects to the way the Sheriff treats them and others.

While Robin lets his close friend, Friar Tuck (TIM MINCHIN), know of his return, he initially avoids Marian -- at the request of Yahya, now known as John -- and cozies up with the Sheriff via handsome donations -- that he's stolen from him in the guise of "The Hood" -- in a ploy to get into that man and his associates' inner circle.

As the thefts increase and the locals find themselves with newfound hope, the Sheriff increases his pressure on them, all while the more powerful religious figures there call in the big gun, the Cardinal (F. MURRAY ABRAHAM), to figure out how to handle the situation. With Robin learning of their real plan, he, John, Marian, and others do what they can to stop them.

Maybe, but probably only if they're fans of the Robin Hood legend and/or any of the performers who appear in the film.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
