Short version: Azeem is not in this movie! Also, it barely qualifies as a Robin Hood movie. It's sort of a prequel, "beginning the legend". And yet, since I enjoy Crusades and British history, I liked it. Once I set aside the expectation of seeing a Robin Hood movie, I enjoyed what the movie actually was. Also, King John is AWESOME in the movie.
Agreed. Not what I expected at all, but perfectly great as far as I was concerned. I have a huge man crush on Russell Crowe though, so I am surely biased. A wonderful appearance by Max Von Sydow, and, as noted Prince/King John was indeed great. My one spoiler, and favorite line was from him

I saw it to review for our school newspaper....I thought the animation was as good as I've ever seen, but the story was lacking and I thought the characters were a bit one-dimensional. Of course, kids don't really care about those things.
