Conan the Barbarian

Bluray,DVD/After Review

Rated – R

Runtime – 113min
IMDB Ratings: 5.2/10
Director – Marcus Nispel
Cast – Jason Momoa, Ron Perlman,  Rose McGowan

Conan the barbarian 2011 movie is based on the epic novel conan the barbarian created by Robert E. Howard.  this movie’s story is based on the conan the cimmarian. and his adventure of  hunting down the killer of his father.

                                       idea and the story of this movie was amazing. and the fighting scenes were amazingly awesome. although there were some few downfalls in this movie when it comes to special effects and editing. specially there are many scenes that some people and fights just comes out of nowhere. also when they say oh shit in some scenes i just could not believe it. because im pretty that there were no “Oh Shit” in  the  Hyborean age. and i was disappointed to see that there were no beautiful scenes of the environment. i mean when i compare this movie with the late arnold schwarzenegger’s 1982  Conan Movie  this one is a fail. but i have to admit that there are few amazing details in this movie that took my attention. like the  the young conan’s fight in the beginning, the fight with those sand men and also the final battle.

in conclusion all i can say about this movie is that this is a great movie but they could have made it better. although if you are looking to kill some time with a movie filled with blood, gore and violence  this should be your first choice.

Reviews from critics have been positive, with many drawing comparisons to work from previous eras. Praise has also been given to Gosling’s and Brooks’ performances. The director himself has said influences came from Bullitt (1968) and that Drivewas a dedication to Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Plot

Driver (Ryan Gosling), who remains unnamed throughout the film, works in Shannon’s (Bryan Cranston) garage, picks up occasional stunt driving work, and moonlights as a getaway driver. At the start of the film, his driving skills and precision are established as he helps two burglars evade the police and split up at the Staples Center’s crowded parking lot. Driver always works anonymously, never for the same crooks twice, and makes a point of only allotting them five minutes to do their business.
