I love history as I said in older posts and my favorites are myths and legends. Those stories that we can never be sure they happened. I think that give them a bite of mystery and magic ;).
Anyhow, who doesn't know about the legend of Robin Hood? I mean same old story, but in this movie we are shown the past and how Robin Longstride became the "Robin Hood". The movie has a sense of reality in them (I guess I feel that because the only other version was the Disney one :p with the animals).
