The best of the two. Marcus talks about the comic and how this film is more true to the source material rather than the original film.

He talks about casting ethnic actors and working with Jason on the character of Conan.

Rubbish. Rose just praises everyone and cringes when a horse falls down.

I'll give this track a two because Jason has quite a few good things to talk about the character of Conan.

They talk about how cold it was filming in Bulgaria and how Rachel Nichols' body double for the sex scene really wanted to do it with Jason. She didn't know it was just acting.

Impressively, they actually talk about the trouble with the ending, and how it did not work out. And how Bulgaria was cheap, but a lot of the crew and extras did not speak English, making many things even more difficult. They both took the job seriously, Mamoa a bit moreso. He points out places he adlibbed lines that he thought sounded like Robert E Howard and the writers were not there for him to go back and forth with, so he hoped the director heard it and kept it.

Being reminded here from what the other reviewer said, I am wondering a little if the body double extra assumed she was filming a porno based on the sets and low budget.
