First off, it's pretty much a given that anything under the Conan the Barbarian banner is not for kids. Even in the original written forms, Conan has always been synonymous with gory violence and lusty womanizing. This is exactly why he's a great character, he's testosterone personified! :) But not for kids.
I had high hopes for this movie - but sadly it's one of the most disappointing ever. Visually, they did a good job. Jason whats-his-name LOOKS the part well enough, and the general art direction was good. The problem is basically everything you HEAR.. the dialog, the story you're being told, and the completely subpar music. Was this screenplay written by some amateur Youtuber? Do these people have any understanding of what makes an action/adventure movie WORK? Sadly no. I guess being handed the reigns of a well developed, awesome character with screen-worthy stories already fleshed out and perfect was too difficult for 'em - they had to release this crap. I almost vomited during the final confrontation - a completely non-Conan resolution. Oh well, Arnold... your throne is secure. Though you're not the perfect Conan, you're still the best we've had.
