An adrenaline rush!

Man, is it violent…for one split second I thought I was watching a Tarantino flick…a plus in my book mind you!

The movie opens with a nice gore soaked battle taking place and a grizzled Corin (Ron Perlman) slitting the womb of his wife to deliver his son who would be Conan. Predictably she dies and Corin rises Conan by himself.

Then we see Conan as a teenager. I absolutely loved Leo Howard as young Conan with his pretty yet snarling face. He shows off his slaughter chops as a young teen when he slays a group of hostile growling Tribesmen wielding a sword with murderous aplomb and taking their heads without a qualm.

Enters Stephan Lang as the main villain Khlar Zym who is looking to restore the parts of a powerful ancient mask in order to resurrect his dead wife and gain control o...

Better then Arnie's version????

Being a fan of the original starring Arnold Scwartzenegger I was a little skeptical about watching this version as remakes in my mind usually suck! I'm always glad when i follow my gut instincts and decided to watch the film as i not only enjoyed it i found it better then the original!! And that my freinds is extremly rare! The storyline in the reboot i found told more then its predecessor. Mostly of the beginnings of Conan's life. If you are like me and love movies which pull no punches as far as the gore is concerned then mark this on your must see list asap!!

The villains in this were impressive and evil as all hell which is the way i like it actor Stephen Lang who plays the evil Khalar in this i find with every movie Lang is in that he is rapidly becoming one of the greats to ci...

He's Conan. That's it.

"Conan the Barbarian" features a boy from a village of barbarians which was attacked by enemies and where his father died right in front of him. And now, the grown-up Conan (Jason Momoa) is all set for a revenge.

***

Okay. I just saw this movie. I heard of it before but was not able to watch any of its trailer or releases. As I entered on the theater, I didn't know what to expect. There are good scenes, the rest are bad. I didn't like the actors. What I like about this film is that even you didn't have any background of the story, you could understand it easily as you watch it. Though, I thought the whole production was combinations of Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, Clash of the Titans and Prince of Persia DOWNGRADED version.

A street walking cheeta with a heart full of napal

Jason Momoa is not Arnold but then again who really wants to be these days anyway?

A new spin on the classic Robert E. Howard material. Visually the film is quite fantastic the locations photographed beautifully. Jason Momoa on the other hand at times i felt didn't physically have the build to be as intimidating as one tends to think about when drifting into the either about barbarians.

The film is quick perhaps too much so. Maybe just maybe this film shouldn't have been called Conan The Barbarian at all but Conan of Cimmera's bogus journey, I feel like we got into a phone booth and skipped over some important and interesting stuff.

All in all Conan The Barbarian is a swift action filled boot to the head, love it or hate it but it's here.
