      Great deal for a 3D combo

      I admit I'm a sucker for Sword and Sorcery films, but I also have a long standing love of Robert E. Howard's Conan. I'm shocked at how many people give this movie poor reviews because they're judging it against the Schwarzenegger film. While I like the original 80's film with Arnold, he comes across as a dumb brute; not at all like the hyper intelligent warrior that Conan is in the short stories. I felt this version captured the feel of Howard's writings far better than the 80s cash-in did. Throw in the fact that I get a 3D version for such a low price and this is a winner any day.

      I know some people were critical of this film as they can't see anyone in the role but Arnold, however I personally felt it was was a really good reboot/reimagining of a classic film series. Jason Momoa looked and behaved the part, and the current gen CGI effects did a lot to bring life to some of the creatures like the giant squid like beast that just wasn't possible in the 80s. Story was decent, cinematography was really good. Highly recommend to fans of Conan or just fantasy films in general.

      Better than I thought it was going to be

      I have seen so many negative reviews for this movie, that I almost didn't buy it. I had missed it in the theater and I really wanted to see it, so I took a chance. Granted a better job could have been done with the plot, by both the lack of and holes. However, the action more than makes up for the week plot point. Jason Momoa rocks during the fight scenes. Lots of blood of course. The CG effects were realistic and the landscapes really made the film. It you are just looking for a good entertaining popcorn movie, then this is your film. If you looking for something with substance, go see a chick flic.

      If you can find this one cheap (less than $7) then I would suggest picking it up. The story is just intriguing enough to hold your interest. Special effects were average. Music (I don't remember anything significant about it) Acting was par. One thing I did not like was that this was set in the days of the Barbarian warlords... way before modern medicine and technology... yet all these actors had glowing white perfect teeth.... that takes all the 'realism' out of any kind of make-believe.

      Outstanding 3D video

      Bought a sony 3D HDTV and they didn't have the glasses , so I went online and bought cheaper glasses. Buy cheap and weep.. I DID. Bought sony glasses and viewed this movie a second time and it was like I never saw it. Great 3D graphics and as with most 3D movies, it's about the graphics not the story. Story kept me interested enough to watch the movie. I thought it was entertaining.

      copied some of original tale,then went off trying to squeeze all ages of interest into movie.costumes looked like cheap Halloween getups .That pretty boy jason should have been picked for tv series of conan .he may have tried but couldn't overcome poor script.if we care about the characters by a good story the rest comes together.You shouldn't make adult horror movie for kids.If you do it well we will go see and buy.

      Short and sweet... the movie sucked, horrible 3d.. no depth to 3d or the story itself.. guys saves girl from big evil guy.. WOW! What a fail! It had so much potential with effects, and just stunning environments, colors.. colors man LOL! Seriously, wait until it's 4.99 or free ... Actually I recommend not even buying, or renting. I love cheesy cult classic, I love adventure movies, Sci-fi, and I loath this movie!

      I've seen both the older & the more recent Conan movie, I've got to say I like this much better. The older movie looks so cheesy and Arnie's accent & big goofy mouth kept making me LOL too much. This Conan acts way better and looks like a part of a real fantasy & action movie. Love the visuals and scenes in this exciting movie that's fun & awesome!
