The legendary Conan The Barbarian stars ‘Game of Thrones’s Jason Momoa and Avatar’s Stephen Lang. From the producers of The Expendables comes a visual spectacular that brings the fabled action hero Conan to life like never before!Based on the character created by Robert E. Howard, Conan was born on the battlefield. From those bloodsoaked beginnings, Conan is destined to venture into an unforgiving world after his father is brutally murdered and his village destroyed. As Conan battles his way through a treacherous world of monsters, sorceresses’ and bloodthirsty enemies, he chances upon Khalar Zym – the warlord responsible for his tribe’s destruction. And so Conan’s quest for true revenge begins… Also starring Ron Perlman and Rose McGowan.
The massively oversaturated red and orange is reminiscent of the similarly garish cover for Solomon Kane’s UK release, lending weight to the DVD’s prospective legitimacy. Bizarrely, even though the release date for the film on DVD and Blu-Ray hasn’t been announced on Amazon, there are 13 reader reviews as of this writing, no doubt for the film itself: it would be nice if they’d waited until we found out the extra features and picture/sound quality. Some are quite fun – Davywavy2 seems to think Conan was taken into slavery, that Conan knew Khalar Zym’s name, and seemed oblivious to Robert E. Howard, but the review is quite entertainingly snarky – and others are just a few lines. Expect the number of reviews to rocket in time: I might add my own if I get it on DVD.
