“When a barbarian feels thirst, it is a thirst for blood.” So does that mean that anyone thirsting to see this movie with all the blood splattering out in 3D is a barbarian, too? Or is that an unfair corrollary? All barbarians may thirst for blood, but not everyone who thirsts for blood is a barbarian?
I fully expect the film to explore issues of such deepness and import.
Also: Will Ron Perlman ever get a nonhulking role again?
Conan the Barbarian opens in the U.S. and Canada on August 19, and in the U.K. on August 26.
