Trailer Probe : Robin Hood

December 17, 2009

Trailer Probe watches nerd-related movie trailers and reviews them, whereby you can wisely spend time not working. Geek explosion content is reasons you will like it, dork disengagement level is why you won't.

Robin Hood

Geek explosion content: This looks awesome! Christian Slater! Kevin Costner's butt! Severus Snape!

Dork disengagement level: This trailer is like 19 years late.

Robin Hood

Dork disengagement level: If this is Robin Hood, where is my Bryan Adams song?

Where is it?

All the famous parts of the Robin Hood legend are here: The running boy. The big net. The girl in a bedsheet.

This looks like every Russell Crowe Fighting Movie. Not that there is anything wrong with that. But I'd like some Robin Hood stuff in my Robin Hood movie, pretty please.

Geek explosion content: There's some! See, the rich are taking from the poor. I bet Robin is going to rob them.

And then stab them in the head with a Conan-style broadsword. How do you like it, rich?

Emperor Ming, alias Max Von Sydow, is here for about a second. That second is pretty good.

I like the rockin' soundtrack, even when there was no rock or roll in the time of the story. It makes me want to ride a horse on the beach and stab some guys.

Geek explosion level: 650,000 geek parts per million.
