Conan the Barbarian

Movie Rating: Melanie Zahar

Remake of the movie that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a star, in which a barbarian warrior avenges the death of his father.

As his clan battles an enemy, young Conan sees his father and brothers slaughtered, leaving his people without a chief. With the villages burnt to the ground and everyone scattered, he becomes a wanderer. As the years pass, Conan vows revenge. But things get complicated when he is distracted from his mission by having to save a nun and protect the world from a demonic power...

Kitschy and missing the retro 80's charm of the original (which thanks to Schwarzenegger's accent was quickly nicknamed “Conan the Bavarian”), this remake is a series of badly done scenes of brutal action that are sure to disappoint even fans of heroic fantasy. Who would have thought that this version of Conan would make people miss the performance of good old Schwarzy...
