    “Forget history,” so says the new reboot of “Robin Hood” in the film's opening narration. Although the critics reviewing “Robin Hood” weren't so quick to forget previous installments of the legend, many hope to quickly erase this one.
    The early reviews of “Robin Hood,” starring Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx in the action-adventure film opening Wednesday, have pegged Otto Bathurst's film as a lazy retread of “Batman Begins” that borrows the worst traits from Guy Ritchie's “King Arthur” flop and the over-stylized action sequences of “300.”
