In ancient Egypt, the mighty warlord, Nebserek, steals the fabled Fang of Anubis--a cursed sword imbued with the power of hell and the strength of its countless victims--intent on creating his evil empire. As the ruthless monarch burns down to the ground a small village, the wounded Akkadian mercenary, Mathayus, joins forces with the Nubian princess, Tala, to embark on a long and dangerous quest to find the mystical Book of Souls: the only thing that can put an end to Nebserek's tyranny. Will the legendary Scorpion King bring hope and restore peace? Written by Nick Riganas

Give the guy the next try at Conan
29 October 2018 | by torgulsmith-225-355486See all my reviews

So this afternoon the recent abominable reboot of Conan the Barbarian was on broadcast tv, so, against my better judgement, I watched some of it. Every bit as terrible as I remembered. I love the Milius Conan, of course, even though it's about different guy named Conan, apparently. So I ran across this thing on Netflix, and I thought can't be worse that what I just saw, so why not? And what a pleasant surprise! A perfectly serviceable sword&sandals&sorcery film! Obvious these people love the Schwartz Conan, several sly references. Handsome production, good art direction, far better than the recent Conan, better fight choreography. In fact, pretty much a Conan adventure, with a different lead.
