Conan Review - By Crom Dideth I Cheer!!
(SPOILER FREE) Holy Hyboria!! Just got back from seeing Conan The Barbarian and let me tell you, if you had any doubts about the movie being good, PUT THEM TO REST!! I didn't see it in 3D so I cannot offer an opinion regarding that. As a reader of the Marvel Comics series Conan The Barbarian, I was really impressed when the first movie with Arnold came out back in the day. This new updated movie in my opinion leaves the original in the dust! Nothing against the first movie because it was great for its time.
Jason Momoa IS CONAN!!!!!!! Plain and simple! The way he brings the character to life is really uncanny. I'm still blown away by how much he really looks the part. The story was cool as were the other characters in the movie. The photography is amazing and the sets are breathtaking. It is all the blood & guts that a Conan movie should be by far! The fight scenes are everything that they should be and will not disappoint!
Another great fact is that the movie doesn't seem over in the blink of an eye! it keeps a good pace and never gets boring. I would love to see Red Sonja in the sequel! A real Red Sonja though and not a joke like the Bridgette Nielsen movie!
