Conan the Barbarian :- Watch Conan the Barbarian on Youtube on Fire, A vengeful barbarian warrior sets off to get his revenge on the evil warlord who attacked his village and murdered his father when he was a boy. Remarkably, the movie gets bad immediately and stays that way. One of its most jarring aspects is that it begins with Morgan Freeman’s narration, which sounds so utterly out of place, with his comforting, slightly Southern drawl the total opposite of everything bloody and Cimmerian, that it instantly comes across like self-parody, as if we were seeing some schticky Mel Brooks interpretation after the fact. This ham-handed disregard for appropriate tone haunts every frame of the film. The story fails to find the real Conan — who in Robert E. Howard’s stories is a smart, tough, brutal survivor — and instead seems to reveal to us the underwhelming idea that Conan’s just another hunky sword dude with a knack for slaughter. The script inconsistently sticks to any epic poetic flair in the dialog, so that when such words are delivered, they feel forced and flat. The noted line “I live, I love, I slay, and I am content,” is meted out with such lack of panache or feeling that I wanted to wash out Jason Momoa’s mouth with soap, right after forcing him to watch Schwarzenegger — not a great actor, by any means — deliver the unforgettable tagline: “To crush your enemies, drive them before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.” But then again, John Milius bothered to direct his actors. Stephen Lang (Colonel Quaritch of “Avatar”) is the half-assed villain Khalar Zym, who inspires zero awe and no respect on his whatever quest for some supernatural thingy, which is such an afterthought that you constantly forget about it. And post plastic-surgery Rose McGowan as his witchy daughter Marique is so outrageously goth that you half-wish for a Sisters of Mercy musical cue every time she steps on camera; if only her performance received the same attention as her over-the-top costumes. Ron Perlman, as Conan’s father, is simply wasted. Weep!
