What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this take on Robin Hood is the latest adaptation of the classic tale of the British outlaw who steals from the rich to give to the poor. In this version, Robin (Taron Egerton) is a nobleman and former Crusader by day, archer and vigilante by night as he tries to undermine a corrupt government with the help of his commander, Little John (Jamie Foxx). Along the way, Robin falls for Maid Marian (Eve Hewson) and leads a dangerous revolt against the crown. Unlike the 1991 film adaptation with Kevin Costner or the 2010 version with Russell Crowe, the violence in this one looks like it will be highly stylized and action-packed. Teens who can handle the combat, violence, and romance should be OK, but consider the animated Disney classic instead for younger kids.
