Synopsis


Conan the Destroyer
Based on a character created by Robert E. Howard, this fast-paced, occasionally humorous sequel to Conan the Barbarian features the hero (Arnold Schwarzenegger) as he is commissioned by the evil queen Taramis (Sarah Douglas) to safely escort a teen princess (Olivia D'Abo) and her powerful bodyguard (Wilt Chamberlain) to a far away castle to retrieve the magic Horn of Dagon. Unknown to Conan, the queen plans to sacrifice the princess when she returns and inherit her kingdom after the bodyguard kills Conan. The queen's plans fail to take into consideration Conan's strength and cunning and the abilities of his sidekicks: the eccentric wizard Akiro (Mako), the wild woman Zula (Grace Jones), and the inept Malak (Tracey Walter). Together the hero and his allies must defeat both mortal and supernatural foes in this voyage to sword-and-sorcery land. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    A lot of Arnold fans, and general film fans, typically don't care too much for this second film. I enjoyed this film, but it is not without its bumps in the road. First off, this film is rated PG-13 which is a major downgrade from the previous R rated film. That is a huge letdown for me, because that signals a tone/watered down violence, language, and other adult content. The plot is not bad,yet it could have used more.

    Pure cheese, but good looking Blu-ray

    I'm surprised a movie of this caliber (or lack thereof) gets such a quality Blu-ray release. The picture quality makes this look like a recent release movie. But 20 minutes into the film you're brought back to reality. This is a pure 80's cheese fest.

    The quality of the transfer is nothing like the original. Grainy.
