Conan The Barbarian Director Shares Honest Thoughts After Jason Momoa Admitted He Thought The Movie ‘Sucked’

Jason Momoa has become one of Hollywood’s top leading men in recent years, but he didn’t get there without a few missteps. The actor recently talked about his attempt to reboot the Conan the Barbara franchise in 2011, and how that movie “sucked.” Now, the movie’s director Marcus Nispel has responded to Momoa’s comments and he doesn’t entirely disagree, though he does give the whole experience a positive spin.

The belief that 2011’s Conan the Barbara sucked is what you would call “conventional wisdom.” Most people who have seen it would probably agree with you, and a lot of people probably haven’t seen it because they heard it was bad. The good news for Jason Momoa is that it didn’t end up stalling his career, despite it being his first starring role on the big screen. Director Marcus Nispel is also smooth that didn’t happen. He recently told people that he was also unhappy with the conan movie that was made though none of that is because of Momoa. Nispel said…

As a filmmaker in this system you are a dog on many leashes. Trying to get Conan done under those circumstances was the worst experience that I had and I was as unhappy with the result. I am happy though that none of this got in the way of Jason’s career path…I always stood by the decision to make Conan with him.
