      Remember Remember what I wrote in 5th May 2011 : http://www.totalfilm.com/news/full-conan-the-barbarian-trailer-brawls-online shero May 5th 2011, 11:00 The trailer is not that good .. because I am sure they chose the best they have in the movie and there are nothing ells left to be seen for sure .. just to make the hype and I think they did a good job to make people fooled by it .. The CGI is not good ... and the prove for it .. watch 0:30 - 0:33 where they pull the big ship ... not realistic in any way .. ( They even couldn't make a good lightning for the 3D ship ).. And for the human dust .. you can see they are becoming real human being with make up over them ... that mean again they are not good in continuing with the CGI dust ... and all the other mattepainting are again not realistic as movies we watched almost 10 years ago ... ( Lord of the Rings as an example ) .. The tentacles are not original and we saw stuff like this before too and they looked much better ... And all these take me to the next point : Non of what I saw in the trailer is original .. and it is the main problem when some one is making a movie in a low budget in Bulgaria with Bulgarian crew ... I heard once : Movies are all been made and there are nothing left to be original ! ... I am kind a agree ! .. but the point is how you use the same old (seen before) elements : Scenes .. Story .. CGI ..etc and show it in a new way ... it is not about being old .. it is about the way you show it to the audience .. And this trailer and latter the movie it self is a big duplication and ripoff from other movies but not in a good way ... but in a wrong lame way ... things we saw years ago you will see it again in a worst look ... ;-) (Example : did you see the lame jump of Conan with his sword 01:06 .. Ok I remember seeing that been done by Brad Pitt in Troy 2004 and it was much better ) .. "The stunt coordinator in Conan The Barbarian was a stuntman in the movie Troy and he is stealing the stuff from there and suing it now here in the wrong way " ;-) I know movie making is an industry and business .. But I believe good movie must be an art too ... making good art to win good money ... But in the case of such movies that been made in the the poorest place in Europe "Bulgaria" using the cheapest human beings in Europe "Bulgarians" * .. Is big prove that it is all about making money and not showing a good art .. and as I said before there is nothing to be seen in 3D in this movie ... and the only reason it is in 3D is to take more money from you ... In the end I just hope you take my critiques as an advice for you .. everyone have the right to spend their money in what they like ... But remember by doing that you are helping companies like Millennium Films "Who finally changed their logo" ;-) and Nu Image Films "Who they were ashamed to show their lame logo" to continue making movies just for money .. Not Art .

      My review for the movie was based not just on the trailer but on real experience and the history of both companies ... And as you see now after almost 4 months from my post : I was right ... Hope you will take my opinion as an advice to not spend your money on " movies " been made by Nu Images and Millennium Films ... because by buying the ticket you will motivate them to make more stuff like that ... and all what they care about is your money .. not your eyes and your time and your love for art and wish for seeing something new . Thanks

      There is nothing sad about some one who want the good for others and advising them to not spend their money and times watching a cheap non sense movie . It looks you have a problem with sadness even before reading my posts .. Maybe you began to feel sad when you watched the movie ;-) Smile and go back spend your money and time watching this movie ! Maybe this will make you feel good ... ;-) Best wishes
