A pretty good painting, though not Mamoa's best film in my opinion.

While I have no particular problem with Arnold as Conan, I think Jason's version was closer to what the source material described.

I think people are just very attached to Arnold as Conan, that classic/retro fantasy barbarian vibe he has going on, having said that, I agree with you.

Conan, what is best in life? "To crush your enemies. To see them scatter before you and to hear the lamentations of their women."

In the original novels, Conan was not only incredibly strong but stupendously fast, and intelligent too: Not only a master swordsman, but also quite cunning and quick to learn from his mistakes.

Off the battlefield, he's a fairly philosophical and poetic man with a flair for languages.

Case-in-point, "Road of Kings".

"Gleaming shell of an outworn lie, fable of Right Divine
You gained your crowns by heritage, but Blood was the price of mine
The throne I won by blood and sweat, by Crom I will not sell
For promise of valleys filled with gold, or threat of the Halls of Hell!
When I was a fighting man, the kettle-drums they beat
The people scattered gold dust before my horse's feet
But now I am a great king; the people hound my track
With poison in my wine cup and daggers at my back.
What do I know of cultured ways, the gilt, the craft and the lie?
I who was born in a naked land and bred in the open sky.
The subtle tongue, the sophist guile, they fail when the broadswords sing.
Rush in and die, dogs — I was a man before I was a king!"

I don't really care what anyone else thinks, Mamoa was a great Conan and a fantatic successor to Schwarzenegger.

I have no idea if I spelt that right.

Agreed....Momoa was actually better as Conan - bigger and faster like the character in the novels. Just a shame the movie itself was dry and uninteresting.
