Every Thursday Apple picks one Movie of the week iTunes Store, whose purchase (even at 4K / HDR, depending on production) comes R $ 9.90. The title selected this time was “Robin Hood: The Origin”, with Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx.
Check out his trailer:
Here's what Apple says about the movie:
The legend of Robin Hood has already spawned several film adaptations, so it's hardly surprising to see Taron Egerton (“Kingsman: Secret Service”) taking over the hero's bow and arrow. In this verse of Otto Bathurst, Robin a nobleman who returns to Nottingham after being considered dead in battle. He learns that the family fortune was confiscated by the sheriff (Ben Mendelsohn) and that his beloved Marian (Eve Hewson) ended up in the arms of an aristocrat (Jamie Dornan). Bathurst modernizes the archer's fight for justice with fast and explosive action scenes.
As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio (@tripalavra), who is a cameraman, also sent us a personalized comment about the movie:
Passing away from the 6,049 adaptations made to the big screen, this is one of the weakest. We have in it the "new Elton John" (Taron Egerton, who can be seen soon in the singer's biography) and "old Ray Charles" (Jamie Foxx, who can be seen in the Ray biography), making this production a waste of talent and potential. But you might ask, "Renato, is it that bad?" No, but it's far from good and far away, for example from the version with Kevin Costner or even that funny one by Mel Brooks.
