Conan the Barbarian

(R) ★★☆☆☆

This 3-D reboot of the 1982 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie can be best described as 112 minutes of “Aaaarrrrrgggghhhhhh!” Our new Conan (Jason Momoa) is ripped out of his mother’s womb on the battlefield. His dad (Ron Perlman) trains him well. Conan must save the nations of Hyboria and protect the beautiful Tamara (Rachel Nichols) from the man who slew his father, the evil Khalar Zym (Stephen Lang). The film revels in its beheadings, blood splurches and “Aaarrgghhs.” Not terrible, but not that great either.
