Conan the Barbarian - 2011:
I got to watch Conan the Barbarian Friday night and it was simply amazing. If gore and violence is your thing, then this movie was made specifically for you. The only thing about the movie I dislike is the opening scene. It shows how the Conan had a warriors birth (in blood), which is fine, but the extent they took it to made it seem a little far-fetched. Aside from that, I have no complaints about the movie what so ever. The casting was amazing. When I think of Conan, a ruthless barbarian that will stop at nothing to destroy those before him, I honestly picture Jason Momoa. Ever since Star Gate Atlantis I thought he would do better playing a role with a sword that is used to cut people in half and was proven right after watching Conan the Barbarian. He also plays a great role in Game of Thrones even though you don't see him in a lot of action scenes. This movie deserves all the attention it was getting before and after opening night. If you are squeamish you may want to watch it alone in case you are forced to stop watching it. The thing I would like to see is a young Conan with the kid from the movie. He played the part very well and should get more work for it. That being said I defiantly think it was worth the 8 bucks to watch and will probably watch it again before it leaves theaters.
There is no scene after the credits.
