Howard fantasy story of the sword and sorcery hero, Conan the Barbarian. Complementing Mulius's heavy metal production is Arnold Schwarzenegger's leaden acting, which in any other context would be deadly, but here (as in The Terminator) corresponds nicely with the whole sonorous project. The story begins when a horde of rampaging warriors massacre the parents of young Conan and enslave the young child for years on The Wheel of Pain. The Wheel of Pain seems to have as its only purpose the building up of Conan's muscles, so it's no surprise that one day Conan grows up to become Arnold Schwarzenegger. 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 (James Earl Jones), the man responsible for killing his family. In the wilderness, Conan takes up with the thieves Valeria (Sandahl Bergman) and Subota (Gerry Lopez). The trio comes upon a weird snake cult, linked to Doom, and Conan wants to trek off to Doom's mountain retreat to kill him. But he is prevented from doing that by King Osrik (Max Von Sydow), who wants the trio of warriors to help rescue his daughter who has joined Doom in the hills. ~ Paul Brenner, RoviHide synopsis
Conan the Barbarian stars Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of his finest roles, as Conan, orphaned and enslaved as a child by the evil, snake cult leader Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones).
Conan is aided in his quest for revenge by the beautiful Valeria (Sandahl Bergman), a savvy swordswoman whose character is one of the best ever female swashbucklers portrayed on film, and the wily Subotai (Gerry Lopez), a cunning thief and Conan's loyal, upbeat companion.
Stunning scenery and an exceptionally beautiful soundtrack by composer Basil Poledouris combine to make this a must-see epic adventure. Also worth watching for actor William Smith's brief cameo as Conan's father.
