Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his striking screen debut as the legendary warrior and hero, Conan The Barbarian. Orphaned by a cold-blooded cult leader (James Earl Jones) and his band of brutal marauders, Conan endures a childhood of merciless slavery only to become a gladiator for the amusement of his captors. Sent to the Far East to hone his fighting skills, Conan is freed and begins a dangerous, full-blooded quest to avenge his parents' massacre. Now, the sword-wielding warrior must vanquish his bloodthirsty enemies in a death-defying action-adventure about courage, strength, character and the triumph of good over evil.

  • Cult movie. You've got to be into it.

  • Nice costumes and Arnold is very good as Conan. A classic. Was entertaining. (Is also available as a blue ray.)

  • Best film ever. period.

  • A wonderfully bad 80's flick featuring Schwarzenegger in his prime, this flick if consider a classic for many for a damn good reason. The acting is literally laughably bad at times but it's got real heart and there are a few pretty good performances littered about. It is certainly worth noting Basil Poledouris's soundtrack is incredible. It is the absolute epitome of this kind of adventure film music and is regarded as such by many. Well worth a listen to on its own even. All in all a solid 80's adventure filck that won't blow your mind and perhaps drags on a bit long, but it well worth a watch on a night in.
