Conan the Barbarian

Saw this on the back of all the bad reviews, so was fairly sure I wouldn't be giving it a 7 or an 8.

The fight scenes and CGI were excellent, the storyline was pretty basic as you'd expect and the characters all do some pretty stupid things, but I still enjoyed it overall.

6/10

I watched the original the other day. It's actually shockingly badly made, but still fun.

Exactly. In this case I think the new Conan has been very faithful to the original.
