      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      While its relentless, gory violence is more faithful to the Robert E. Howard books, Conan the Barbarian forsakes three-dimensional characters, dialogue, and acting in favor of unnecessary 3D effects.

      Keith Uhlich Time Out The film’s secret weapon proves to be Freddy Krueger-fingernailed witch Marique — imagine a cross between Madeline Kahn in History of the World: Part I and Lady Gaga — that should garner Rose McGowan a Razzie and an Oscar. Rated: 3/5 May 7, 2024 Full Review Nick Pinkerton Sight & Sound It is right that a new Conan film must look for its own identity, but one immediately notices that in the absence of Milius's saga-paced direction... and Schwarzenegger's special-effect physique, very little has been introduced to replace them. Jul 9, 2018 Full Review Roger Moore Tribune News Service Missing the myth, the sorcery and the humor of the original big screen "Conan." Rated: 2/4 Jan 15, 2013 Full Review Iván Kazi EscribiendoCine Marcus Nispel's new project gradually decreases in intensity. The resolution of the conflict, announced since its inception, happens without surprises or shocks. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 2/10 Sep 27, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review [The film] plays to the lowest possible viewer demands. Rated: 1.5/4 Mar 9, 2023 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Visually, this new adaptation feels authentic, with gallons of blood spattering against tempered steel as muscular men wage war with beasts and each other alike.

      George X First we had Friday the 13th (2009) now this, this director should retire for good. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/24 Full Review Alain M "Conan the Barbarian" (2011) featuring Jason Momoa earns a respectable 3.5-star rating, offering a modern take on the iconic character. Momoa's portrayal brings a raw physicality and intensity to the role, capturing the essence of the fierce and formidable warrior. Supported by a talented cast, including Rachel Nichols as Tamara, Stephen Lang as Khalar Zym, and Rose McGowan as Marique, the film boasts strong performances that elevate its narrative. At its core, "Conan the Barbarian" delivers on the promise of thrilling action and epic battles, transporting viewers to a brutal and unforgiving world. The film's visual effects and set designs create a vivid and immersive backdrop, immersing audiences in the rich tapestry of Conan's universe. However, despite its strengths, the film occasionally falters in pacing and storytelling. Some plot elements may feel rushed or underdeveloped, detracting from the overall impact of the narrative. Additionally, while Momoa shines in the titular role, the chemistry between the characters could have been further explored and deepened. Nevertheless, "Conan the Barbarian" remains a solid entry in the fantasy genre, offering an entertaining and action-packed adventure for fans of epic storytelling. With its strong performances, breathtaking visuals, and thrilling action sequences, the film successfully honors the legacy of the iconic character while introducing him to a new generation of audiences. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/24 Full Review Dinos K Is not retcon, not sequel, not, prequel, not origin, not of everything. Momoa was good but the only Conan will always be the big Arnold Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/10/24 Full Review Gaming U Wish I could give it zero Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review Crime of Passion L Conan as a character is underrated. This movie is underrated. Incredible adventure. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/02/23 Full Review C A Stayed true to the original. Need to make another.
