Bloody And Immensely Satisfying Conan The Barbarian On Blu-ray & DVD


Out now on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD is the rousing action film Conan The Barbarian (Lionsgate). The pulp hero Conan, created by Robert E. Howard, was made into a movie first in 1982 starring Arnold Schwarzeneggar. This new incarnation, directed by Marcus Nispel, is all about a necromancer's mask, that, when powered by the life fluid of a "pure blood" (in the film played by the pretty Rachel Nichols), causes all sorts of evil to be unleashed on the world. Conan (played by the musclebound hunk Jason Mamoa) is out for revenge for the death of his father and protects the "pure blood" from the evil lord (Stephen Lang) and his witchy daughter who wears Freddy Krueger-like steel fingers on her hands (played with fiendish relish by Rose McGowan). Mamoa (from the first season of HBO's Game Of Thrones), is sexy on screen, and, mercifully, we get to see a few truly epic seconds of his naked butt (check out the image below). The actor, however, has great charisma on screen and the film is a lot more fun than you would expect. Wild action sequences (like the ones featuring sand warriors that spring from the ground and a battle with an octopus creature) as well as a bloody finale make this film immensely satisfying.
