Introducing a new generation to the fictitious hero, the reboot of "Conan the Barbarian" made its way into theaters today (August 19).

Previously played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Momoa takes the reigns this time around, starring alongside Ron Perlman and Rose McGowan.

While the movie has created a frenzy of summer blockbuster buzz, the Marcus Nispel directed fantasy reboot has also been met with mixed reviews from the critics.

Offering up a 3-D version of the classic, the film centers around "Conan the Cimmerian and his adventures across the continent of Hyboria on a quest to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village."
