1.0 out of 5 stars This movie is a waste. Oct. 30 2013
By Blade
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The story is very primitive and shallow, 21st century technology is too obvious for ancient warriors....their makeup, armory, shoes, hairstyles, etc. Don't waste your time and money for this movie, the older version of Conan with Arnold Schwarzenegger is much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more like R.E. Howard's character March 21 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you like the Arnold movies... (they broke my heart) this will be quite different, this is much more bloody and without the cheesy humour and sidekicks some people must have loved (and I hated, Conan wasn't funny and didn't have a goofy Asian wizard pals). But if you've actually read Robert E. Howard's (1906-1936) Conan stories, it's a whole lot closer then Arnold's stumbling fool. It's odd, the quote people made fun of "I live, I love, I slay -- I am content"... is actually right out of the books.
I think the fault of this movie was trying to incorporate some of the Arnold Schwarzenegger films story line into it. The whole vengeance on the people who killed his family has nothing to do with Robert E. Howard's Conan, the same with the riddle of steel stuff. Also, why is he in a dress? And what's with the obviously silly swords, (two blades?) while not as bad as the helmet worn by Mickey Rourke in The Immortals, or Russell Crowe's chrome job in Gladiator... it's obvious the designers wanted something new and cool, but stood out as "simply wrong". To me anyways.
Either way, I enjoyed it and would gladly watch a few more sequels, specially if they're closer to the books. When the books are that good, you don't have to stray from them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just not barbaric enough. Oct. 18 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the world that was created in this movie. I feel it was let down by the performance of some of the actors. When the original came along it redefined the genre. This new one had a great look but that's about it. The film would have benefitted from being grittier.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sexist, boring and a waste of talent Oct. 15 2013
By Cat May
Format:DVD
I wanted to see this film because I love a good warrior movie and I must admit, as a female viewer I was curious to see Jason Momoa in the role of Conan. Unfortunately, I was completely turned off by his character’s sexist comments and condescending demeanor toward his love interest, Tamara. I was also disappointed by her character who comes across as rather uninteresting: while she is not dumb, neither is she particularly clever, and while she can defend herself, she can’t really fight.

I didn’t like that Tamara doesn’t really put up a fight when Conan talks down to her, or the fact that she doesn’t even try to escape when he holds her prisoner. That makes absolutely no sense. No woman in her right mind would stick around someone, especially a stranger, who is so disrespectful and condescending (particularly one who stuffs her mouth to shut her up), no matter how good looking.

I appreciate strong female characters and I could not identify with her at all, who is mostly helpless. I would have liked her to have more spunk, more personality and more of an active role. Nor did I find her relationship with Conan believable; there’s no chemistry between the two. They are both very one-dimensional and a rather boring match. Actually, the character of Tamara is a bit more likable than Conan, who is downright despicable. I’m sorry to say the only thing I liked about the main character is the actor.

As for the story line, well, there is none: it’s completely predictable from beginning to end and very poorly written. Sure there are great special effects and action sequences, but as far as I’m concerned, when there’s no substance, I soon tire of the artifice.

Making this movie was a waste of time, money and talent. I’d rather watch Game of Thrones a hundred times over. At least in it, both the characters of Drogo and Daeneris have personality, courage and depth. And it’s enjoyable to watch.

By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The following review is based on the 2D version.

VIDEO:

Conan The Barbarian (2011) arrives at blu ray with MPEG AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. Conan the Barbarian may not have a lot to offer in terms of plot, character or fun, but from a purely visual standpoint, it's an amazing looking film, with a fantastic transfer. The video comes with razor-sharp clarity in most every scene, particularly in bright daylight exteriors where clothing and hair is distinct. Facial complexions, especially in close-ups, are revealing with lifelike texture and natural skin tones. It is full of vivid, gory excitement and tons of blood-soaked eye candy. Colours pop really well, and of course the crimson reds of the copious blood look fantastically robust and well saturated. Fine detail is excellent throughout. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

Conan the Barbarian's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 mix is pure sonic delight. It starts right off the bat with the Lionsgate logo, which has chunky mechanical noises and a few squeaks and creaks populating the surrounds, seemingly more so than usual. That's just the tip of the sonic iceberg, for once the film starts, there is a virtual nonstop array of fantastic effects zinging through the soundfield. (5/5)

MOVIE STORYLINE:

A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil. Movie (3.5/5)

TRIVIA & GOOFS:

It has an estimated budget of $70 million, but only grossed $20 million. A definite flop as far as box office return is concerned.

3.0 out of 5 stars Conan the Barbarian Blu-ray
Most viewers won't remember what brought the Conan books back to prominence in the 60's. It was almost solely due to the work of the great cover artist Frank Frazetta. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT THE NEW SCHWARZENEGGER.
This role does not need a great actor to pull it off, just someone
with more muscle than Momoa.

Jason Momoa was not the right choice for Conan. Read more
