A movie that teaches us what is best in life. Conan is a masterpiece of sword & sorcery.
One of the very best fantasy movies made!
The fantasy epic that brings the classic Barbarian to life! One of the best fantasy films ever made.
Great 80’s movie made for arnie, silly violent n bloody entertaining
For a big dumb swords & sorcery movie, it sure has a sophisticated grasp on production design and visual narrative.
Classic dark fantasy. It's just so cool. There are parts that keep it from being perfect but Conan does punch a camel.
Cheesy, but has its moments. The villain, in particular, steals the show.
One the truly good sword & sorcery movies of the 80s. Arnold fits the role well & the film is very quotable. The music is actual perfection.
Classic sword and sorcery adventure building off Robert E. Howard pulp fiction and Genghis Khan. Beware camels.
The definitive sword and sorcery movie with Arnold.
A film adaptation of the classic sword and sorcery hero, Conan the Barbarian. A horde of rampaging warriors massacre the parents of young Conan and enslave the young child for years on The Wheel of Pain. As the sole survivor of the childhood massacre, Conan is released from slavery and taught the ancient arts of fighting. Transforming himself into a killing machine, Conan travels into the wilderness to seek vengeance on Thulsa Doom, the man responsible for killing his family. In the wilderness, Conan takes up with the thieves Valeria and Subotai. The group comes upon King Osric, who wants the trio of warriors to help rescue his daughter who has joined Doom in the hills.
Conan is commissioned by the evil queen Taramis to safely escort a teen princess and her powerful bodyguard to a far away castle to retrieve the magic Horn of Dagoth. 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, the warrior woman Zula, and the inept Malak. Together the hero and his allies must defeat both mortal and supernatural foes in this voyage to sword-and-sorcery land.
