BEYOND SHERWOOD FOREST (DVD Release USA 2010)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.1|5.0 Starsìì


Beyond Sherwood Forest
—wants to be worthy; but is not—introduces a spiritual component that just does not work. The traditional story now has a dragon and a portal thrown in as well as some spiritual beings. The mix takes away from the traditional story and the audience may find itself thinking ‘Why is any of this necessary?’ The movie relies on actors and actresses that are not well known in America or are just now starting on careers. It lacks the charisma that marked earlier film making attempts to tell the Robin Hood story. This movie is difficult to care about because there is no relatability between the characters and the audience they serve.
