Surprisingly Good, not great. I find it laughable when so-called "movie critics" critique a move
entitled "Conan" and then look for "redeeming social quality". Conan lives, loves and slays - that's all you need to know about this movie...no need for over analyzing or careful thought - there is none. Enjoy it for what it is. Sorry Arnold, this Conan may not have biceps as big as yours, but this movie does eclipse yours. Not to worry, everyone knows technology has jumped since. So thats what you see this movie for - effects, action. Please don't make a bigger fool of yourself than the barbarian on screen by looking for some "redeeming social quality" or some Oscar caliber acting and enjoy a good time at them movies.
A bit bland and could have been done with more drama. The actors were great, it just lacked ooomph.
There's nothing surprising about a story based on historical events, but the storytelling could have been better - add some spice a little drama with the sequencing, musical score, and....oh well, what do I know, I'm just an avid moviegoer....I would have enjoyed it just the same if it were a History Channel documentary or docu-drama.....
"Misdirection" - learn it. Its been used by magicians (aka "slight of hand"), and well, as this film
illustrates, was, and is, alive and well - all you need to do is listen to the "echo chamber" of politics. It's an engaging film, superbly acted. And the lesson to be learned is found toward the end of the film (no spoiler alert, this is after all a real life event) - this isn't verbatim: "How is it that WHY became a question of WHO"....that's a great question whose answer should drive everyone everyday.
