Movie Reviews

  • with a script so pat and humor-free, Momoa has little to do but sneer and slice
    1.5 of 4 by Scott Bowles [USA Today ]
  • there's just not a lot to like here, with the exception of what may be one of the all-time best bad movie lines
    1.5 of 4 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • the movie stumbles on its predictably Manichaean square-off and the chimerical presence of Pure Evil
    by Mark Holcomb [Village Voice ]
  • the film is numbing and dumb with its hero indistinguishable from its villains
    by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • seems to have little interest in '30s pulp stories, and only a little more in cheesy '80s epics
    1 of 4 by Jaime N. Christley [Slant Magazine ]
  • Mr. Nispel, whose resume includes a few other slick redos, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Friday the 13th," doesn't add anything obviously personal to this "Conan," which was probably just what the producers ordered
    by Manohla Dargis [NY Times ]
  • lose the legend of Conan... lost the plot
    2 of 4 by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel ]
  • it takes a lot for a "Conan the Barbarian" movie to be flat-out idiotic, when you consider how low the bar is set already
    by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • for those who decry gratuitous violence, this is not a flick for you. For the rest of you bloodthirsty lot, it's not like the filmmakers were attempting a bait and switch
    by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times ]
  • brings nothing to the experience except a ticket-price bump
    Review rate : C by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly ]
