About this movie

Arnold Schwarzenegger returns with a vengeance in the sword and sorcery adventure Conan the Destroyer. The powerful hero Conan (Arnold Schwarzenegger) has been commissioned by evil Queen Taramis (Sarah Douglas) to safely escort a teen princess (Olivia D'Abo) and her bodyguard (Wilt Chamberlain) to the magic Horn of Dagon. Conan soon discovers, however, that the queen plans to sacrifice the princess when she returns and inherit her kingdom. Now he and an unusual group of allies — including the eccentric wizard Akiro (Mako) and the wild woman Zula (Grace Jones) — must defeat both mortal and supernatural foes in an epic, sword-wielding battle with the fate of the entire world at stake.

that should have never been made, let alone released to the viewing public. It is a mockery of its predecessor, & a travesty to the memories of the works of Robert E. Howard. It is rife with tongue-and-cheek, something the novels were surely not. As with many works directors rip apart several original works & smash them into one movie. Hence this film. It was aptly named, "the Destroyer"; decades before another was made! All involved in its production should be deeply embarrassed & ashamed of themselves.

I absolutely love this movie! The first Conan, a legit fantasy film. Top Shelf. This sequel though is like it's stupid (sisters brothers) cousin by comparison. But by Crom I love watching it! Conan has a silly sidekick (Tracy Walter) and takes on a journey, so that he can reunite with his dead Valeria from part 1. Arnold's oily muscles have muscles, he yells all his lines in top mush-mouth form. The comedy, the adventures, swordplay, wizardry & monsters; all totally 80s! So outrageous and fun💯

Goofy sequel but still worth watching if you like Arnold. According to AS there were some R rated scenes with him and Olivia D'abo that didn't make it into the movie. I've always wondered if they still existed somewhere. Oh what could of been if Milius had made a sequel or two.
