It has a certain commitment to its cause, and by that I mean it supplies the necessary flayings, slayings, beheadings and, um, a...

The movie's look is artificially grainy, and most of the scenes are encrusted with CGI - you'd have to chip it away with a chisel to get to...

As for the movie itself, it's tolerable.

Conan the Barbarian lives by a pretty simple ethos: He lives, he loves, he slays. What he doesn't do, alas, is act.

There is no purpose to the film other than random blood splattering amid scenes of bondage, primitive savagery and S&M eroticism. The film...

Conan the Barbarian review :)

By Runman221
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....

Not very good

By TerpsFan72
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...

Conan Review

By imax2the max
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....

Entertaining but silly

By entropicangel42

This Should Have Been A Comedy--It's So Bad Parts Were Hilarious.

By Alon Patterson
Rarely, among the literal hundreds of movies I see on screen each year, do I walk out before the end. This one and only two others in my lifetime bears that distinction. I stayed for plenty though,...

Not as bad some people say.

By movie-fan_ colts
Sure, this movie could have been better. But overall I thought the special effects were good and it had a entertaining plot. Certain scenes were really intense while others were down right stupid,...
