Jason Momoa Criticizes ‘Conan the Barbarian’ Remake – The Hollywood Reporter
Jason Momoa is opening up a career-specific blunder that is still deep.
The actor will appear in upcoming films such as Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and X fasttalk to the British GQ for a recently published interview about the fact that a project can be fun to shoot but end up unloved, due to things not working out in post-production.
“I’ve been in a lot of really cool stuff and movies that are out of your reach,” Momoa told the publication. “Conan [the Barbarian] is one of them. It was one of the best experiences I’ve had and it [was] was taken over and turned into a huge pile of shit. ”
The 2011 film Swords and Sandals, directed by Marcus Nispel, was released the same year that the actor made it Game of Thronesdebut was Khal Drogo, based on the book by Robert E. Howard. The author’s writing also inspired the 1982 action film of the same name starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and spawned a 1984 sequel.
Momoa didn’t go into detail about what bothered him specifically about how Conan the Barbarian turns out, but apparently, it might not be a big surprise for him to feel that way. The film released by Lionsgate did not perform well at the box office and currently holds a 25% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
It’s safe to say that The Hollywood Reporter’2011 movie review is not a rant. At the time, critic Kirk Honeycutt wrote in part: “The film serves no purpose other than a random splatter of blood amid scenes of confinement, primitive savagery, and S&M eroticism. The film is paralyzing and dumbfounded, with the hero indistinguishable from the villain. “
