Watch 10,000 B.C. instead.

One cannot improve upon rugolin's comments below - - ditto! [But I generally watch anything with Rose McGowan in it - - just love her look!]

A vastly inferior reboot of the pretty good John Milius and Oliver Stone version from 1982. Jason Momoa is such a terrible leading man that I thought I was watching Conan the Surfer for all the intensity he brought to the role. Everything is bad here. The writing,the acting,the lousy CGI and the straight to video directing. The book character of Conan always seems to get poor treatment in films with being turned into a rough boy scout or an unlikely avenger. Not the cunning and brutal barbarian who will fight his way from thief to the King of Aquilonia. More Walter White from Breaking Bad than The Lone Ranger. Maybe one day Hollywood will get it right and give us a proper Conan.

I am an action movie fan, and this has action. BUT... lots, lots, and lots more of gore. I closed my eyes and waited till the waves of blood passed! This is an interesting take on the "old" Conan--with unforgettable, inimitable, the one and only James Earl Jones. Leo Howard as young Conan is fantastic; what a little actor! I wonder if this is more in tune with the book...

I thought it was slightly better than the Arnold version. It definitely give a new meaning to nose picking!

Not as good, or as fun, as the Arnold original. The bad guy and his daughter focus on gathering the pieces of the "Mask of Acheron," which is supposed to convey a godlike power, but when they succeed, it does little more than stick to his face. Started losing interest about 40 minutes in.

A very action packed,but another totally unnecessary and sleep inducing remake of a film i think i liked but don't really remember it literally from back in the day.The director of this LAME remake was best known as a music video director and unfortunately that's exactly how he directs the extremely TAME violence in this remake.I really hope they don't make a sequel to this and i really hope the director of the this turd RETIRES from directing movies because live action is clearly not his lane,BUT I DIGRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I lost interest about a half way through the movie. Nothing great here, wasn't expecting much but apparently I was still expecting something.

This is one of the most disappointing movie adaptations of a comic book and fantasy character ever. The movie 10,000 B.C. is similar and better.

"Conan, what is best in life?"

Conan: "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women!"

Tamara: Do you ever wonder if our
actions serve some plan?
Some purpose spun by the gods?
Or are we all just doomed
to chaos and ruin?

Conan: I know not and I care not.
I live, I love, I slay,
and I am content.

Opening narraton part 1 of 2:

In between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world. Then came the dark empire of Acheron, where cruel necromancers sought secrets of resurrection. They crafted a mask from the bones of kings, and awakened its wrath with the pure blood of their daughters. The mask summoned spirits of unspeakable evil giving them power no mortal men should possess. Acheron enslaved the civilized world.

Opening narration part 2 of 2: Only the barbarian tribes were left to rise up against them. The mask was shattered and Acheron fell. Each tribe kept a single shard so that no man might attempt to join them back together and drive the world once again into chaos and ruin. The pieces were scattered across the land and hidden for ages. But prophecy spoke of a man who would one day try to reassemble the mask and rule the world. So came the dawn of Hyborian age, a time both bleak and brutal. And so came a child, born of battle...
