Having seen Jason Mamoa give such a riveting portrayal of Drogo in Game of Thrones, I had high
hopes for this re-make of the Conan classic, but those hopes were DASHED by the inept filmmaking skills of Director Marcus Nispel. Can you imagine a director that manages to make fight scenes BORING? Well, Mr. Nispel has managed to achieve this. The film seems endless, with all of the characters seeming as shallow and uninteresting as the Director's filmmaking skills.
Only Ron Perlman manages to keep his dignity in this train-wreck, and Rose McGowan's character has flashes of interest. In a fantasy-adventure film, if the chase and action scenes can't hold your attention, then you can forget about it being saved by the story line or the dialogue. Bring back ARNOLD!
If you are starved for intelligent, adult filmmaking, then you must treat yourself to Woody Allen's
latest creation. The cast is great, especially the smokin’ hot Penelope Cruz as the passionately volcanic character Maria Elena. Penelope gives credence to the premise that the true beauty of a woman lies in her complexity, and the film really hits its stride when she enters the scene.
Javier Bardem and Rebecca Hall provide rich performances and give greater depth to the film, helping to offset Johansson’s eyecandy presence, even if she is delicious eyecandy.
This will be one of Woody’s top ten films.
