Well I went to see Conan this week. I'd like to start the review by saying I never thought any of the Arnold versions were worth watching and a recent TV revival of them has only proven that theory to me.
No one goes to Conan expecting academy award winning performances. That said, the film was okay, not great but okay. It has lots of fights scenes, action and sword swinging. It requires a lot of suspension of disbelief and the time line is really rough (Conan leaves evil place, goes to city, gets a friend and come back and the bad guys are just leaving the place. Hmmmmm...) Combat is filmed in that herky jerky style that is popular now and I really don't like as it is hard to tell who is killing whom.
It is another film that is done in 3d and has no reason to be. It just makes the film dark and hard to see.
So, if you like sword and sorcery movies with big guys, lots of topless women, a thin plot line and bad lighting - enjoy.
At least this guy can sorta act like a barbarian.

I agree with you
I agree, this movie was way overly done as far as blood in my opinion. And the new action in movies is horrible. Like Alacrity said, you can't see what is going on other than explosions or someones blood and guts flying across the screen. And another thing I agree with Alacrity about: 3D. I don't see the point honestly except in thrilling movies where a knife seemingly plunges through the screen at you suddenly, startling you. 3D is overrated to say the least. Anyways, just put my 2 cents in for anyone who still hasn't seen this movie, be ready for lots of blood and choppy action scenes.
