The Barbaric Tale Of Conan The Barbarian 2011




I still remembered vividly the cartoon I watched when I was so little. It was either 10.30 a.m. or 11.00 a.m broadcasted on TV3. The cartoon was about a half-naked man who fought evil witch and sorcerer with his intelligence, wisdom and amazing stamina!!!~  Forever, this cartoon burnt into my head because it was so nice back then. 

It was adapted into a movie very long time ago and acted by Arnold. I didn't watched that version though; so, as a "first timer" for this movie, I was quite interested in watching this movie, and to my surprise, I won a pair of tickets to the show!!! Yeah (^^)

However, to my surprise again, the movie was superbly violent with fallen heads and cut-off limbs@@~The movie was mainly about a warrior who seek revenge on the massacre of his family and his village. With action, passion, special effects, beautiful actors, I thought those were the main ingredients for a successful movie. Yes, they were! The movie was quite nice!~ Yet, it contradicts with the image of Conan in my mind. In the movie, he was being presented to be an arrogant skillful warrior who fears no one! During my cartoon days, he was a wise barbarian who always save the day!~
 
Despite IMbd rated this movie to be 5.3, I would give it a 7/10 because the action was nice and intense. No moment was wasted as constant actions were fed into the scene! However, this movie still lacks of a strong storyline or unexpected twist! And, of course, Rose McGowan (Charmed) played well as the evil witch; but, the lack of magical scene made the movie rather dull~ Overall, it was ngam ngam passed my test (^^)..hohohoho~~~


How about you? You watched it oredy?
