Conan is a remake of the original pulp fiction story of a warrior who rises to defend the people. Literally born into battle, and orphaned by the evil forces, Conan dedicates his life to seeking revenge for the death of his father.

This poor remake didn’t do very well. I’m not sure who green lighted this film, or why it was even made, but it’s very weak as compared to the original. The film tanked in the box office, and didn’t come close to making back it’s budget. It uses unknown actors, and there is a very weak story line. We run from battle to battle with little story, and nothing to tie anything together.

The action is intense, but disjointed and nothing is very impressive. With the great battle and adventure movies that came out in 2011, this one simply got lost in the shuffle. It was a bad idea to try to remake it, and then make something inferior to the original which was at least fresh and new back in 1982. There just is nothing improved in the last 30 years that made it necessary to redo the film. It’s really hard to keep your attention. It’s just not that good.
