ENTER AN AGE UNDREAMED OF.
When his father is killed by a warlord (Stephen Lang) who’s looking for pieces of a mask that will bring him unfathomable power, the barbarian Conan (Jason Momoa) goes after the warlord. A 3D reboot of Robert E. Howard’s stories that has nothing to do with the 1980s movies. Marcus Nispel earlier made a remake of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and this one is in the same style, with focus on extreme violence and a kind of dull soullessness. Momoa is nothing special as Conan, but a few action scenes are adrenaline-packed, and Rose McGowan is fun to watch as the warlord’s wicked daughter.
