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.

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.

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.

By Neurosky TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Nov. 5 2013
Format: DVD
Now this is the Conan that I remember from "The Savage Sword of Conan" magazine/comic: dark, gritty, ugly and a lot of fun. The makers of this film really, really tried. The visuals remind of "The Lord of the Rings" films, style-wise (with slightly inferior quality.) When a ship rams through a gate and the large stone bricks come crashing down, it actually DOESN'T look like CGI crap! When they do use CGI they edit it slickly to try to hide the fact (which I appreciate!) It's also been a while since I've seen a film with battle scenes this satisfying. And sure, some of the acting could have been better, but overall it's pretty good. With more shots (multiple close-up shots especially) everything could have come out looking sharper. With such a large budget, this film could have looked more spectacular. Not that it doesn't look really good, because it does. Set and costume design are great, and those working hair and makeup had the sense not to make these look like Hollywood actors. For what it is, I really enjoyed this film and would like to see more like it.

One minor point: if it was a little less ambitious it might have accomplished more in some respects. It's too bad this couldn't have been a 2 hour film and had more time to explore character and relationship development. It definitely feels a bit rushed, however the pace does add to the excitement. Not many films keep me on the edge of my seat these days, but this one did. The battle scenes are definitely its strongest feature. Even though you know Conan is unlikely to die, being the hero of the film, the action is so intense and so many dangers are thrown at him that your sub-conscious can't help but register the danger he's in at every turn.

Recommended for fans of dark and gritty adventure films.

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.
