One calls it "the film equivalent of having someone punch you in the face for two straight hours while someone screams in your ear," while another touts it as "awesome."

Fans seem to mixed about Conan the Barbarian, which The Hollywood Reporter's Kirk Honeycutt reviewed as, "Non-stop blood-and-guts action aimed at game boys and emotionally stunted lovers of adolescent fantasy." The violent remake, which features a death every one minute according to AOL Moviefone's extremely detailed break-down of how the actors die, hits theaters Friday.

Here's what a mix of fans and critics are saying on Twitter so far:

You know how some movies are called "critic-proof"? Movies like CONAN are "praise-proof." They just get bashed.

There were a handful of cool 3-D shots in #FrightNight, more in "Conan the Barbarian," but overall "Conan"'s 3-D was more poorly utilized.

About half the negative reviews on CONAN THE BARBARIAN will be from people who are just ashamed to admit they liked it. ;o)

How did Conan the Barbarian find the time to get an L.A. tan, health club pecs, hair product, body wax and perpetual one-day stubble?

How much $ do the folks behind "Conan the Barbarian" owe HBO for making Jason Momoa into a non-laughable leading man?

So glad I did not get the part to play "Conan the Barbarian." The women in the movie are stronger than I am.

Happy Conan the Barbarian Day! It feels like I've been waiting for this day for years! Wait. I have. Can't wait to see a 14ft Jason Momoa!!
