<p></p>Im just glad i didnt pay to see it in the cinema. I have no interest in buying the DVD. It wasnt my DVD we watched. I will rent it to see REH documentaries. I just think some REH fans are fooling themselves thinking these level of creators can in the future suddenly become good and make a good Conan film. Its bad when people who dont know Howard Conan stories were debating after the film if it was the worst film they have seen in years or not......
you put a fine point on it lol...
I just saw the film and it was worse than my lowest expectations. If you are gonna make Conan a heroic revenge fantasy film atleast make it epic, mindless fun. The only thing i liked was Jason Momoa, he looked grim when he killed the bad guys. His dialouge was bad like the rest of the script. It was like they were joking, a parody with the lines being so bad. I saw it with 5 family members and some of them laughed how campy bad some of the scenes was. I didnt even remember to think it was bad REH adaptation since the film didnt even work as generic barbarian film.The final fight, the master theif with keys, the terrible REH qoutes, the mask that didnt give Khalar any powers. Im glad it was critical and BO flop so we dont have to see these people abuse Conan again. I dont make excuses for it like some other fans in the hope that in the magical future there will be a good adaptation. It was bad film REH adaptation or not.
<p>this is the statement I was trying to address </p>
<p>you stated that you hated it, fine but just because I went in and found it more than I expected. Not a great film but good enough for me to enjoy, exactly why am I fooling myself again ?</p>

I meant fans who said they didnt like as REH film but hoped it would still be big hit because the sequel will be much better. Thats naive imo. Accepting bad film in their views for future sequel by the same people is off to me. There is many posts like that i have read in these forums. Some fans sound desperate for the sequel like Conan film really means that much.
Other fans who liked it and found more than they expected fine good for you. I wish it was that good to me.
I see what you are saying. did you read the script that was to be the sequel ? and do you really think that Nispel would have been apart of that after this movie failed? I think this movie had a few Howardian moments but nowhere near enough. I heard that the sequal was going to be an adaption of an original and so yes before the movie was released. I to had high hopes that it would have success with what ever target they were reaching so I could finally see a true original on the screen. I find nothing naive about that. If the movie did succed to the point of let's just say Batman begins level, Are you saying that you wouldn't want the same director, directing the sequal ?
