The Plot: Conan is the son of Corin, chief of a barbarian tribe. The youth is a skilled but violent warrior, who his father believes is not ready to wield his own sword. Their village is attacked by Khalar Zym, a warlord who wishes to reunite the pieces of the Mask of Acheron to revive his dead wife and conquer Hyboria. The Mask, crafted by a group of sorcerers and used to subjugate the world, was broken into many pieces, scattered among the barbarian tribes. After locating Corin’s piece of the mask, and murdering the entire village, Zym leaves. Conan, the only survivor, swears revenge.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve mentioned growing up on the original film which I loved and while I enjoyed the trailer we got and the promotional posters, I don’t think I will be able to see this one straight away. Momoa looks good in the role and I enjoyed him in “Game Of Thrones” so let’s see if a brand new franchise can be launched from it. What about you readers? Will you be checking this one our early in the run in theaters? Chime in down below since you can add comments to this part of the website. See you next time.
