Legendary Heroes on Film
The website Rotten Tomatoes is my favourite movie website. Here is their take on Legendary Heroes on Film.
Without question, movies have helped enhance the stories behind some of the greatest heroes of all time, whether they are based in fact or fiction. From Ancient Greece to the Wild West, feudal Japan to the fields of Scotland, heroes from all over the world have had their stories perpetuated into legend.
With Ridley Scott's Robin Hood (starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett) drawing us back to Sherwood Forest on May 14, it's time to take a trip into historical fact, classic fiction, and regional lore to identify the many legends that have found new life in film.
For the stories behind some of the names that will continue to be passed on from generation to generation, join us for a cinematic tour of some of the most legendary heroes of all-time!
