If they do a reboot or a retake or whatever with it, it have to be done at the top level from the very beginning. Otherwise it will only flop such as this one. The shame is that Conan is a character that could be done both entertaining and still magnificent. Watching some of the movies that have the atmosphere, gloomy dark and heavy richness, a good story, a good director and other crew, with the right approach it could be a magnificent movie. Dark, broad, heavy, rich, weird in a way, horror and mystic could suck in even the people who never even heard of it. Everything is in approach really. You can make a masterpiece out of virtually nothing and you can crap up the best source material ever done so everything is just up to the people who make it.
I would like to see another take on it but to be done nothing short of a masterpiece. It can be done and Conan, anything you do actually, deserves such a treatment. No matter what you do, give it your best shoot. Crap or get off the pot.
