Jason Momoa Says His ‘Conan the Barbarian’ Remake Was “Turned Into a Big Pile of S***”

Jason Momoa opens up a special career hiatus that still cuts deep.
The actor, who will be appearing in upcoming movies like 'Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom' and 'Fast X,' spoke to Britain's GQ for a recent interview about how making a project can be fun and on end is still not popular. because things didn't work out in post-production.

"I've been involved in a lot of things that really sucked and movies that it's out of your hands," Momoa told the publication. “Conan [the barbarian] was one of them. It's one of the best experiences I've had and it [was] taken over and turned into a big turd.”
The 2011 Marcus Nispel-directed Swords and Sandals film, which was released the same year the actor made his Game of Thrones debut as Khal Drogo, was based on the books 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 particularly bothered him about how his Conan the Barbarian turned out, but it obviously wouldn't be a huge surprise to him to think so. The Lionsgate release underperformed at the box office and currently has a 25 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
It's safe to say that The Hollywood Reporter's 2011 film review was no rave. At the time, critic Kirk Honeycutt wrote, among other things: "The film has no purpose other than random blood splatters amidst bondage scenes, primitive wildness and S&M eroticism. The film is stunning and silly, its hero indistinguishable from its villains.”
