It was alright. Not one of Arnold's greatest films. Too many sex scenes for my taste. Good story line though

One of best fantasy film ever. It is dark, much darker than star wars and lord of the rings, but it is not depressing it is tough. You can even say inspiring. It has very strong images and great soundtrack. Schwarzenegger is very convincing as man who survives in this tough world. Maybe it isnt as perfect as Lord of the rings but i love fantasy and just have to give it 4 stars.

A Classic Sword And Sorcery Epic

Long before "Game Of Thrones" and its R-Rated fantasy trappings came "Conan The Barbarian" - still an all time classic sword and sorcery movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger is perfect in the title roll and will forever be Conan. The supporting cast, led by a scene stealing performance by James Earl Jones is also first rate. The screenplay by John Millius and none other than Oliver Stone is filled with great memorable lines. The violence and nudity are just right for this sort of thing. Also of note is the truly magnificent musical score. On the negative side, the special effects are outdated and just don't hold up anymore. Other then that, this is still one of Arnold's best movies and also one of the best fantasy movies ever made. Finally, it contains the single greatest religious debate...

"Conan The Barbarian" by Yojimbo

After seeing his entire village slain, being sold into servitude and forced to battle for his life in the arena, Conan swears vengeance and seeks out the leader of the snake cult responsible. Long before Iron Man, The X-Men and Dr. Strange, Conan The Barbarian was one of the first Marvel characters to make it to the big screen. The film adaptation is a strange beast indeed; directed and co-written (with Oliver Stone) by John Milius who wrote the script for Apocalypse Now, it is far from the typical "superhero" movie. Milius' directorial inexperience is obvious; the pacing is inconsistent and it relies far too much on montage over narrative story telling and characterisation. Some of the performances are also very ripe indeed, the dialogue clunky and some important plot elements left compl...

Conan the Barbarian.

Conan the Barbarian.

An epic fantasy centred around the barbarian warrior created by Robert E. Howard, Conan is a Cimmerian, who is kidnapped, along with all the other children, from his village in the grim northern realms when a mad cult, led by the eerie and brilliantly portrayed Thulsa Doom (who, incidentally, has an awesome name) played by none other than James Earl Jones. As he is seemingly strapped to a giant wheel for most of his life, we see the young Cimmerian grow into Arnold, who is taken away to be trained in the art of war by Eastern warriors.
Cue a long montage of Arnold kicking ass repeatedly, taking women for his, ahem, pleasure and then finally being set loose into the world to find the terrible cult who destroyed his life, along with a thief, a sexy theif and a sorce...
