This movie is really generic. The story is flat and predictable and the acting is poor. I certainly did not expect Brando quality acting and was not looking for anything exploring the human condition or containing any social value or general statements on life. I was expecting an action movie, but Conan fell short in that area as well. This movie looked like it tried to make an action movie by simply being violent. It looks as if the bulk of the budget was spent on CGI effects and little was spent on writing, directing, and acting. Violence and CGI effects was all this movie had to offer.
