Rating: 2/5 -- It's like an expensive B-movie that makes a lot of noise but signifies absolutely nothing.

...Director John Milius does a nice job of setting up the initial story. There is a real anticipation as Schwarzenegger is unveiled as the barbarian...
Variety

Rating: 1/5 -- The fault lies mainly with Marcus Nispel, German music-video director turned specialist in useless genre remakes, and not a man to whom any sane producer would entrust 3D. Full Review

It's mostly just fights and fights and humdrum CGI and us in the audience wondering which of these big climaxes will be the last. Full Review

Here's the thing about this version of Conan. Even if you're regretfully sober when you venture into the theater, it is imminently forgettable. Full Review

It's only when you recall all the schlocky imitations this spawned that you realise how good it actually is.

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.
