While I much looked forward to seeing this movie, it was a major disappointment. Typical Hollywood
crap - every sequel has to have bigger and badder monsters, and more blow em up special effects to overcome the fact that the plot, dialogue and acting are so anemic, ti would starve a vampire.
If you must see it, and you really won't miss anything if you don't, then wait for it to show up in Best Buy's bargain DVD bins for $5 in about a month.
OK, so this is just Rocky meets the Transformers... it's not the most brilliant idea, but they
executed on it very well. The robot fight scenes are nothing less than amazing, delivering a visual and visceral punch you nearly feel in your gut.
Hugh Jackman, however, was not at his best until those fight scenes. Otherwise, he stood around grinning vapidly, in a vain attempt to be boyishly cute. His shelf life for that bit are coming to an end.
The best actor in the film was the boy, hands down.
Overall, well worth seeing, especially in IMAX format.
What this film delivers in better cinemaphotography, sets and special effects that was better than
the original Conan series, it lacks as much in warmth and appeal.
As bad as actor as Schwarzenegger was, his faults actually added to his character and gave it a more human element. The actor who plays Conan in this remake had all the charm of an angry robot.
So, it is basically a decent few hours entertainment but that's it.
