|Editing||Chris Barwell, Joe Hutshing|
|SA distributor||Empire Entertainment|
|Produced by||Summit Entertainment, Appian Way, Safehouse Pictures, Thunder Road Pictures, Pixoloid Studios|
|Language||The material contains infrequent low impact use of appropriate language that is used within a context of expressing anger or frustration.|
|Violence||The material contains frequent moderate impact physical and emotional violence. The majority of the physical violence in the film consists of “bow and arrow” violence that is actual and implied at times with minimal bloodletting. The film also contains a single minor scene of a man’s hand being dismembered without bloodletting.|
|Comments||The film contains complex and mature themes of thievery, wealth inequality, medieval times, the defiance of a young man who fights against the ills of social injustice driven by love and willpower, social imbalance, rich versus poor, murder and deception. The scene of a man’s hand being dismembered (which is brief and without any bloodletting) might be threatening, disturbing or harmful to viewers under the age of 13 or cause psychological harm. The positive messages of fighting for social justice, good prevailing over as well as love and companionship mitigates against a higher impact.|

What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Michael O'Sullivan Modern makeover mars beloved classic.
Herman Eloff All-in-all, when you finally walk out of the cinema you simply can’t help but feel like you got robbed by Hood.
Tomatometer Robin Hood robs from rich source material, but is ultimately just another poor attempt to needlessly gussy up a classic tale with amped-up action and modern special effects.
|Movie Review Query Engine|
Jeffrey M. Anderson Sloppy, violent adventure does little for classic legend.
