  • Morgan Freeman's voice is heard as the narrator, which is in itself the stuff of parody. Then we listen and get lost within two sentences, because the narration is so poorly written that Freeman himself probably didn't know what he was talking about. show more

  • 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. show more

  • 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. show more

    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.
