A war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.
Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
-With a production budget of around $100 million, Deadline Hollywood already listed the film as a box office bomb, blaming the poor reviews and recycled property. See more »
In the trailer we see Robin Hood shooting guards with his bow in the rain.
In reality one can not use bows when the string is wet, as they loose elasticity.
The bow is also a composite bow, meaning layers of wood held together by glue and string. Medieval glue would come undone in rain, rendering the bow utterly useless. See more »

On the short list of films I have walked out of...
I had gone to see this film in the hopes that at worst it would be so bad it's good. Unfortunately, it careened past that point about 15 minutes in to it's so bad it's obnoxious. I managed to suffer through about 2/3rds of it before throwing in the towel. I saw nothing in that time that made me want to ever finish the movie.
I think the problem is the film couldn't decide what it wanted to be. A lot of it is super dumb action movie stuff, i.e. MTV style training montage, which can be fun but then the film injects political commentary to make it socially relevant., i.e. Robin is a Crusader and Little Jon is a Muslim. It all ended up being a mismash of tone, style and seriousness that grated on my nerves.
I also must say that the film had some of the laziest plotting in recent memory. At one point a character, and this is why I left, directly stated his nefarious intentions and plan in detail to Robin because one just vouched for Robin.
This film was a waste of time. I am not even made about the 7 bucks in light of the time sink.
