The legend of the man who stole from the rich to give to the poor meets yet another twist of the storyline in the most recent film about Robin Hood, the prince of thieves. In Ridley Scott’s bloody tale of the account of how Robin Longstride (Robin Hood as we know him) became a hero, he is not so much a nobleman like most other versions of the well-known story portray him to be and he doesn’t steal from the rich to give to the poor either.
In this story of how the hero became an outlaw, during the time of war, Robin Longstride is an archer in the army of King Richard Coeur de Lion. He is a libertarian and a rebel striving to overcome high taxes and the scheme of the government which take away liberties of his own people. After a long story and several intense battles, Robin defeats the dangerous Godfrey who hoped to open doors for the French to more easily overtake England. Robin then becomes a hero, which is an apparent threat to King John, who declares him an outlaw, thus the beginning of the legend we all know.
