Many years ago, sorcerers crafted the Mask of Acheron and dark forces of Acheron conquered the world. However, the barbarians vanquished Acheron warriors and broke the Mask into pieces and divided among the tribes. The barbarian Cimmerian village of chief Corin is attacked by the evil warlord Khalar Zym that wants the last piece of bone of the Mask of Acheron to resurrect his wife. When his witch daughter Marique finds the hidden piece, he slaughters the villagers and the Corin's son Conan is the only survivor. Conan swears revenge against Khalar Zym. Years later, the warrior Conan is a pirate and he decides to release slaves from a field. When he is celebrating in a tavern with his friends, he sees a thief being chased by a guard and Conan recognizes him as Lucius, the Khalar Zym's soldier that he cut the nose out. Conan let the guards capture him and once in the prison, he forces Lucius to tell him where Khalar Zym is. Meanwhile Khalar Zym attacks a monastery where Marique believes that a pure-blood descent of Acheron lives. But the monk sent the descent Tamara back to her homeland. She is chased by Khalar Zym's soldiers, but Conan saves her. Now Conan intends to use Tamara to reach the evil Khalar Zym. Will he succeed in his intent? —Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

By Crom this was a bad remake.
A lazy script and under developed villains really hurt this Arnold remake. The only thing this movie did right was casting Jason Momoa as Conan, not only does he fit the part, he plays it to the best of his abilities. Failed attempt but see it for Momoa's performance.
Would Have Been Better Off as a PG Movie for Kids
Not for the legions of devoted fans who rightfully adored the original mind you, but for the studio. At least that way they could have sold it as an action packed adventure for the family. Maybe they would have come close to breaking even. For the rest of us though, all the million dollar sets and bare breasted women in the world couldn't save this film from its flat dialogue, terrible character development, overly convenient plot vehicles (master thief who just happens to have the keys to a secret passage to the fortress, anyone?), and badly overacted character stereotypes. It took the me three tries to make it through this movie and I still gave up about 20 minutes from the end.
Disappointing, despite low expectations
Things got off to a poor start with Morgan Freeman's unconvincing audio introduction and the pause for Conan's father to perform a lightning C-section on his dying mother in the midst of a violent battle. Then it started looking up, as we see the young Conan as an impetuous anger-filled youth who is already skillful enough to take down a group of marauders all on his own. He is then given good reason to be angry, as a new invader destroys his village and leaves him in an impossible situation trying to save his father's life. the father has the wisdom to end it himself, to assuage any guilt. But there's always revenge as a motive. Then the youth has grown into a hulk (better explained in the Arny version), yet the rage seems to have evaporated, even if the desire for revenge still drives him. Nonso Anozie is a fun character who leaves all too soon (and will be disappointed the flop is unlikely to generate the equel he deserved). Then we meet the ambiguous Rachel Nichols, who one moment is an admirable self-sufficient match for Conan and the next is behaving like a helpless screamy slasher movie victim. Stephen Lang's villain is of Shakespearean roots, more prone to explaining his villainy than actually inspiring terror. And as for Rose McGowan's witch, it must make even the most ardent appreciators of her denunciation wonder what Weinstein saw in her in the first place (perhaps weirdness inspires weirdness). The combined result is that, for all the action, one finds oneself not really caring much about the outcome, especially as it is clearly established that good will overcome evil (ok, so Bond always wins, but at least there are convincing obstacles in his way). The whole thing makes me wonder what we reasonably expect from a Conan film. The Arny original is a classic, but despite nice touches and humour the three weren't exactly great movies, let's be honest. I suppose the closest to the ideal was Vin Diesel in The Chronicles of Riddick, with a great warrior who is also clever and whose qualities attract followers to the cause. If he has to be muscle bound then I suppose one thinks of Dwayne Johnson in The Scorpion King. The key is a good story that is convincingly acted (room for humour and romance optional).
