This movie was better than I excepted it to be. There was action pretty much the entire movie, which is what I really like. Conan's acting was quite good. He actually acted how a barbarian should. The special effects were great. One problem I had with it was that the blood spurts at times were a little over the top on some scenes. Other than that, I really enjoyed it and would see it again when it comes out on dvd.
When it says Rated R, it isn't being put lightly. There is quite a bit of nudity, and the violence is quite graphic and gory. I strongly recommend that ages 16 and below don't watch this. If you don't like watching movies with a lot of nudity or very graphic violence, don't watch this.

To be fair, I have to say I'm a huge fan of the original and this movie just doesn't hold up at all, in my opinion at least. Another newer movie than leans way to heavily on the FX, which is becoming more and more common place. We need good movies, with good effects, not just a bunch of amazing, and sometimes not amazing effects.

I really enjoyed the movie! I liked it more than the Arnold movie. This newer version explained more--a lot more. Also, Momoa's body type better fits the Conan concept. Momoa is muscled an agile. Arnold, Mr. Universe that he was, was indeed very bulked. Conan needs to be very agile. Again, really liked the movie--soundtrack was good too.

I thought this remake would be gratuitous, but I actually enjoyed this mindless, fantasy-action flick. Conan seeks revenge against the man who killed his father and destroyed his village.
