It reeks of being made by a committee of studio suits, instead of a director with respect for the Robert Howard stories. "Let's make it PG to get the kiddie audience", no blood, no sex, etc. It has...

Exactly, which is why all your talk about "targeted buyers" makes no sense. The OP said nothing about the thread being only for the "High End" market.
