Russel CroweRussell Crowe reminds us just how impressive he is on horseback in this special behind-the-scenes video clip taken from Robin Hood. Jumping over dead bodies, or should we say motionless actors, is no mean feat. And his axe throwing whilst galloping across a beach is second to none.

Director Ridley Scott's adaptation of the legendary archer who steals from the rich to feed the poor is certainly looking impressive from the trailer and now this clip gives us a straight up look at some of the immense battle-beach action.

The similarities to Gladiator are pretty striking, but hey - Scott has obviously got a good formula for epic period movies - so why not stick with it? In fact, this latest epic sort of makes Gladiator look like a budget flick.

As for this video, well, it's pretty basic (what sounds like a fog horn kicks off the combat scenes) but this is just the sort of behind the scenes footage we love (ie no annoying naration).

Take a look at the clip from Filmstar below, it's cinematic magic in the making...
