'Conan the Barbarian'


Without Arnold Schwarzenegger, but with a substantial addition of graphic violence, this update of the Robert E. Howard character casts the appropriately rippled Jason Momoa ("Game of Thrones") as the warrior who encounters more than his share of trouble wile on a revenge mission.

Despite a good cast that also includes Stephen Lang ("Terra Nova") as the central villain, as well as Rose McGowan and Ron Perlman, the original movie remains the preferable version ... though it doesn't hold a candle to the gore on display here. DVD extras: "making-of" documentaries; audio commentaries; "The Man Who Would Be Conan: Robert E. Howard" featurette. ** (R: AS, N, P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
