The Hyborean Age. Khalar Zym (Lang) murders barbarian chief Corin (Ron Perlman) after taking the last piece of a magic mask. Later, Corin’s son Conan (Momoa) searches for Khalar Zym, intent on revenge. Khalar Zym needs Tamara (Rachel Nichols), the last of an ancient bloodline, to complete the ritual which will make him invincible. Conan and Tamara unite against the villain.
Possibly better than Red Sonja or King Kull — but let’s face it, that’s scarcely a major breakthrough. Next time, get a director with a personality and actually read the source stories.
