...um, I'm 21.
Anyway, just because I like fast, action-packed movies full of violence and gore, doesn't mean I'd get bored with talking. Hell, Clerks is one of my favourite films and nothing happens in it!
Besides, my opinion of Robin Hood is taken from the trailer, which tries hard to make it look action-packed and fun, but to me it just looks boring. I really don't like period drama stuff.

I'd say it was aimed at 25 upwards myself , It definately has plenty of action, at 2 hours 20 though it doesn't seem like it though :lol:

hell i loved it, can't wait for the bluray to be released and then the sequel

See, this is where it's lost me already.
An origin story when the actor playing him is 46? Not only is that rather late in the day to be starting a saga but also, during that period in history, anybody living over 40 was generally considered bloody lucky to have lived that long in the first place.

Four Lions was pretty cool. It wasn't that funny though.

Don't really understand that. How can a comedy be cool if it isn't that funny?

There were really funny moments but it's mostly just the bizarreness of it all that made it fun to watch.

Fair enough. I definitely want to see it as I'm a huge Chris Morris fan so I'm not expecting "normal" humour.
