Horrible, pass away from this film, is one of the worst remakes I've ever seen, completely offended the history of classic character. A movie trash that is best done by this succession of horrors, awful story, horrible special effects, fights evil tested, only the actor Jason Momoa is saved well by incorporating the role of Conan. For the rest go away from this film

I'm 55 and went to see Arnold's version back when I was in my 20's. Although I enjoyed his version better. I still enjoyed this one. I was in the mood for action and that's what I got. I went into it realizing that the action would overshadow the acting (it usually does in strong action flicks) so I was not bothered by it. Despite this I thought the movie was still pretty good.

This guy is a little to puny to fill the shoes of Arnold. Needed to bulk up just a little bit more to play this role. Good action not enough acting

I absolutely loved Conan! I am BIG fan of Jason Momoa first and foremost but I enjoyed the show itself also. Yes there was a lot of blood etc. but they are barbarians, back then it's how they lived. I'm going to see it again just as soon as I can! :-)

Those nostrils do a lot of Momoa's acting, to be honest. As right as he is looks-wise, Momoa falls short in attitude. Full Review

Brutal, bloody beyond belief, and has no socially redeeming value. So it is with a certain amount of guilt that I say it's kind of a wicked blast to watch, especially if you're in the mood for some righteous revenge. Full Review

With the most growling and grunting of any movie this summer - and that includes those apes perched atop the box office - Conan the Barbarian seems at times to have actually been made by barbarians. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
There is no purpose to the film other than random blood splattering amid scenes of bondage, primitive savagery and S&M eroticism. The film is numbing and dumb with its hero indistinguishable from its villains. Full Review

There's something and nothing for everyone in Conan the Barbarian 3D. Full Review
