the oh-no! DVD of the week: ‘Robin Hood: The Truth Behind Hollywood’s Most Filmed Legend’

Sshhhh! Don’t tell anyone that’s not Russell Crowe peeking out from behind the hood. They’re hoping you’ll think it is. They really are:

Robin Hood is probably the most legendary and well known character in the world. His exploits have been seen across the world in books, films, TV shows and even computer games. But what is the truth about this enigmatic man? Russell Crowe plays the fictional movie character expertly but the REAL Robin Hood is far more exciting than any fantastical Hollywood Film.

I bet the guy playing Robin Hood in the historical reenactments here isn’t, in fact, more exciting than Russell Crowe. I don’t say that to be mean or anything, but come on…

In this film, best-selling author and award-winning filmmaker Philip Gardiner goes on an amazing journey into the heart of the timeless tale of the Hooded Man. He travels back thousands of years and unlocks the mystery and the myth. This film was shot on location in Sherwood Forest, England which is the very same place that Robin Hood and his band are said to have called their headquarters. Gardiner is joined by a cast of real life outlaws including the present day Robin Hood and Maid Marion. Featuring dramatic reconstructions and amazing Special Features with beautiful music, produced by James Earnshaw and musical group No Redemption, this film is a must see for all fans of real life adventure and fantasy.

The “present day Robin Hood and Maid Marion”? Umm, what?

Reality Films – reality is what you make it

Hmmm. Methinks a few someones misunderstand what reality is…

Oh, my: there’s a trailer:

It looks like it was shot at a Renaissance Festival, and that it hopes you’ll think not only of Russell Crowe but of The Lord of the Rings, too.
