Conan The Barbarian

3

Arnold Schwarzenegger can rest easy...

Born on the battlefield (literally) and raised by rock-hard Ron Perlman, Conan never does grow into Arnie (sadly), instead becoming Game Of Thrones’ Jason Momoa, who can’t act in any dimension (both 2D and 3D versions are included).

Though director Marcus Nispel doesn’t skimp on the barbarism – heads roll, noses are chopped off, someone even chins a horse – two hours of roaring himboids hacking the crap out of each other gets wearing, and the film’s super-glossy visuals bring to mind those bits in Gladiator when they CG’ed in Oliver Reed’s face.

Four featurettes fill out a slick package.
