There’s some cathartically pleasant violence, particularly in the first half, but ultimately this movie didn’t have to be made, and it *definitely* didn’t have to be made under the name “_Conan_”.
_Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
Everytime I hear the term “remake” I cringe a little… More often than not, the so-called “remake” does not do the original movie justice. With that being said however, I was blown away by this revisited title. Although I was not familiar with the actor cast to play Conan, I was quite pleased by his rendition of the role. Excellent action and plenty of adventure, and not too bad in the looks department either! A most enjoyable movie, that I am pleased to have in my collection.
The Studios NEED real people standing over their shoulders …
I’m not going to get into the plot set-up and all that other stuff which has already been prefaced to this movie’s release a thousand different ways. Just straight to the review …
The entire introduction sequence at the beginning of this Conan was great, up until you see the Jason as the adult Conan. The child actor who played young Conan was broodier, and the sequence where he proves himself as a warrior was more dynamic and believable than most of the other action sequences in the movie. I really enjoyed that entire first portion of the movie, but it went down hill after that.
Jason Mamoa can be a really good Conan. He brought some new flare to the character, but I have to say that ultimately I’m split between him and Arnie, with a bit more leaning to Arnie’s Conan. The director, and Jason himself, almost made this Conan rather “sun-shiney” and somewhat fluffy. They had all the sequences they needed to really get dark with him, but they kept it fairly light. With the exception of some mild nudity they really didn’t take advantage of the “R” rating. With exception to that mild nudity much of this movie felt like a made-for-TV movie more so than something which should be in the theaters.
Plot … bleh. It was a weak twist on the original movie’s plot. Nothing special in any way, shape or form. In watching Conan go through the progression of the plot I felt like I was watching a video game play out where he was just maneuvering through the different level bosses of the game to his ultimate goal. To say the plot was formula is almost an insult to formula plots.
The CGI, especially in the scenics, was entirely too obvious and very light-hearted comic book-ish. I know there was a lot in this movie where they were drawing upon the great Frazetta artworks, but they missed the marks several times. At the end of the movie, as with many other contemporary special effects movies, I was missing the days of mechanical special effects and matte paintings as backdrops. CGI has destroyed a lot of movies over the years and this was another victim of the over-reliance that’s been wrought by the movie industry.
The Studios NEED real people standing over their shoulders DURING production of what should be great movies, ESPECIALLY when there’s already a fan base for the subject matter. They need people who aren’t afraid to NOT be “Yes Men” and tell them straight up that something is stupid, or over-done, or under-done or just plain not right and let’s start it over. The Studios don’t have the genital fortitude to do this, so this is the kind of disappointment we have to live through 2 hours at a time throughout our lives. This movie could have been a beginning-of-summer blockbuster, but instead it’s stuck in the “could-have-been” file.
How to Make a Movie in the Dark
I am struggling to actually review this movie, not because of its weak story-line or because of its total lack of imagination, or even because of its gratuitous violence (most of which is hidden), but because the one thing that was missing was a lighting engineer. Yes folks, this is an object lesson in how to make a low budget blockbuster movie, though how much money was actually saved by shooting seventy-five percent of the film in darkness I don’t know. However the other cost saving was certainly well designed, a few decent cameramen who could actually keep the shot in focus would have spoiled the whole thing for me. Out of focus darkness was entertaining for the first ten minutes, after that it became irritating, the big fight scene in the last ten minutes of the film is lost completely but then that will have saved on the cost of giving the monster too much detail, rather than leaving it a a piece of wet hose pipe. What a waste of time and money, not the production companies, but mine, I can sit in the dark with some flickering lights at home for free. There was one decent fight scene in the film about half way through, but it was certainly not worth the ticket price. One of the worst and most irritating films I have seen for a long time.
