A humorless endurance test from the director who previously desecrated horror staples both good (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre) and bad (Friday the 13th) with so-what? remakes, this Conan fails in practically every respect.
Marcus Nispel takes on John Milius' epic testosterone orgy and provides gallons upon gallons of CGI gore and Frank Frazetta-esque backgrounds but precious little of the humanity (yes, I said humanity) of the 1982 Schwarzenegger original.
Watchable sword and sorcery saga, enlivened by superb special effects sequences and some solid performances, though it's also a good twenty minutes too long and hampered by both a lack of humour and some dodgy dialogue.
