Crowe angry over Robin Hood accent?
He is an out of control overconfident angry Bully. His preffer weapon to attack the people walking on the streets for not asking him for his signature is the Phone. He looks like one of those angry Al-Qaida Muslims who trained in Afghanistan to bush the people on the street for no reazon. Crowe needs to be hit with a Telephone to teach him some respect.

Rarsehole Crowe is a New Zealander. You can tell by the massive inferiority complex that comes out as violence.

Look who's talking. You have too much time on your hand to write about your feelings toward Russell Crowe here in Topix. Maybe you want to go with Russell Crowe to that Little Church in las Vegas and get "marry" to him after a few Beers!!! Holy Jumping Kangaroo, there will be little kids carrying Phones to nock out the other kids walking on the streets if they do not ask their father Crow for his signature!!!

The new and improved robin hood is just another of the stupid movies bwhich you have to work hard to get the sense of it. They fan the camerasb like its a home made movies and they gobble their words which even when replayed many times it still does not makes sense. Its a kid movie superman without being super. Pwee! I am not watching any ofn the boring new movies. Idiots.

First of all, who cares?!? Secondly, if one wants to complain about a poor accent, maybe you should watch Kevin Costner's portrayal of Robin Hood. His accent kept shifting from (sorta) English to Irish to Chicago to New York to Hollywood, to only a linquist could tell.

The worst ever attempt at an English accent (in this case a Cockney accent) by somebody not English was made by Dyke Van Dick in Mary Poppins.

I agree that he definitely sounded Irish and with James McKay about the lesbian couple bit, too.
There was no part of it that was Robin Hood.
All we had was Russell Crowe who shot maybe five arrows in the whole movie, stole one thing-a bag of corn, and never even wore tights. I mean, every Robin Hood movie needs tights.

This review pretty much says it all:

There are only two men in history who could play Robin Hood:
Errol Flynn
&
Cary Elwes

True robin Hoods with True accents. Screw Russel Crow and Braveheart 5.

Errol Flynn was an aussie as well. All Robin Hood films are stupid, as he probaly never existed anyway.
