Every Ridley Scott Movie Ranked Worst To Best

24. Robin Hood (2010)

At the start of the 2010s, no one was pining for another Robin Hood adaptation. Enter Ridley Scott, who bypassed public opinion to craft his own riff on the classic tale, with long-time collaborator Russell Crowe in the eponymous role.

Going in, Robin Hood was probably going to flop; that was clear to everyone. But with Ridley Scott behind the camera, Crowe ready for the title role and an inspiring ensemble filling out the supporting cast, there was always a chance that the film would be a decent ride.

Unfortunately, this was far from the case. Between Crowe's abysmal accent (Hollywood: Stop letting Russell Crowe do accents that aren't his own), the dire action sequences and the complete lack of originality or heart, Robin Hood is nothing but a shambolic collision of noise that looks pretty, has some attitude, but does nothing to justify its existence.
