I really wanted to see how this stood up to the Arnie classic. While the story for this new
version was completely different from the original the visuals of the 3D were not so in your face as to distract from the movie. This was probably a bad thing, the editing was absolutley awful. The story chopped up into bite size chunks that made little sense at all.
This was an opportunity lost as far as I'm concerned.
The acting was at best so so with no outstanding performances and the actor playing Conan was miscast along with most of the other primary roles. The bad guys sucked totally. The Witch Daughter was hopeless with her only attribute seemingly an abilty to sniff out a pure blood. What a waste.
As I mentioned the only thing going was the new storyline. A pity because so much could have been done with this. It was like a few snap shots taken from the online game of the same name.
Buy the original on Blue Ray. Avoid this.
