In 2026, four years after the infamous Sword Art Online incident, a revolutionary new form of technology has emerged: the Augma, a device that utilizes an Augmented Reality system. Unlike the Virtual Reality of the NerveGear and the Amusphere, it is perfectly safe and allows players to use it while they are conscious, creating an instant hit on the market. The most popular application for the Augma is the game Ordinal Scale, which immerses players in a fantasy role-playing game with player rankings and rewards. Following the new craze, Kirito's friends dive into the game, and despite his reservations about the system, Kirito eventually joins them. While at first it appears to be just fun and games, they soon find out that the game is not all that it seems...

This is still the best movie about the legendary outlaw, it's swashbuckling adventure defined! it shows almost all the most important and famous pats of the legend and does so with happy optimism and wonderful fight scenes. Robin Hood is one of those characters who's story was made to be told this way, no "updating" needed, no dark and brooding Robin of Locksley needed! It's upbeat and colorful, it's a fun adventure flick that has stood the test of time. Errol Flynn will always be the best Robin Hood!

Rousing entertainment that keeps moving at a steady pace keeping the viewer engaged. It does such a good job that one doesn't want to critique but enjoy it. Good meal scenes, action and good guys vs bad guys with no let-up. Well done to all involved

A colorful and fast-paced adventure film that to this day remains the definitive version of the Robin Hood legend.But for all that, I was mostly struck while watching this movie by what a serviceable but not especially artistic director Michael Curtiz was. He was a work horse who directed many, many films throughout the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, and he had a tremendous range, from gritty gangster movies like "Angels with Dirty Faces" to musical spectacles like "White Christmas." And he gave us what many consider to be one of the top two or three best movies of all time, "Casablanca." But his films have an assembly-line efficiency to them that prevents them from rising to the top of my personal favorites list. "The Adventures of Robin Hood" hits all of its marks, but it feels like it could have been directed by anybody.This film won three of four Oscars in 1938, which was enough to make it the most awarded film in the year that saw the Best Picture award go to "You Can't Take It with You." It won for Best Art Direction, Best Film Editing, and Best Original Score, losing only in the category of Best Picture. It surely would have received a nomination for Best Cinematography had color films not been made ineligible for the competitive cinematography award and instead granted a special award when color was still relatively new to Hollywood.Grade: B+

The story of Robin Hood is almost always tempting. The late 'thirties' bring us one of the best pre-war adventure. THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD is a film in color and one of the most important in the genre.The film seems simple and true. Scenery is beautiful. In this swashbucklers film, courage and romance alternating. These segments complement each other in a remarkable way. It is a triumph of the studio system. With adventure certainly going exterior beauty. Curtiz becomes recognizable. Picture, costumes and effects of the camera and with hindsight looks impressive. Technical segments are great, but the film would not have been so successful that the actors are not perfect around. The chemistry between Flynn (Robin Hood) and de Havilland (Lady Marian) has been seen. So much for the "side" of movie stars that are a perfect fit. I am delighted by the fact that each character given space. There is no place surplus in the story. When compared with the movies it's amazing.For Errol Flynn this is the best role in his career. He was acts in the film as an adventurer. The fact that he is handsome, charming and charismatic'll leave aside. His dominance, arrogance, cheerfulness and good humor that he brought to the role can not be denied. In the film history is one Robin Hood and he is Errol Flynn.Olivia de Havilland was a great natural beauty. It is logical that the camera lingering on her face and rosy cheeks. Shifts in her feelings and change of Lady Marian character is impressive. The evil and greedy Prince John (Claude Rains), cruel and arrogant Sir Guy of Gisbourne (Basil Rathbone), prudent and smart Will Scarlett (Patrick Knowles), funny and determined Friar Tuck (Eugene Palette), fearless Little John (Alan Hale Sr.), brave and clumsy Much (Herbert Mundin), cowardly braggart the High Sheriff of Nottingham (Melville Cooper) and my favorite Bess (Una O'Connor) are great.The Adventures of Robin Hood is a perfect blend of adventure action and romantic comedy.
