    i know this sounds like an “old timer”  But this kid simply doesnt hold a candle to the GOVENATOR

    However the look of this movie is dead on to that of the comics and FRAZETA paintings.

    AAAAAND  for an August Lionsgate film— this looks pretty epic with a decent budget.
    It just might be a surprise hit or NEW cult film.

    Hold a candle to the Governator?  Seriously?  Momoa can act, can actually be understood, and uses more dialogue in the trailers than Arnie ever used in both films.  Like you said, Momoa also looks and sounds more like Conan than Arnie ever did.  I think he’s holding up exceptionally well.  What may make or break this film is the director Nispel.

    Arnie may have been THE biggest fella around back then, but he was NOT a great Conan at all.  The reason Conan the Barbarian was so good was the epic storyline, the director John Milius, and the epic soundtrack by Basil Poledouris.  when Milius left we were left with Conan the Destroyer which highlighted just how inept Arnie was in the role.

    Fingers crossed that Nispel has done a great job.
