Conan the Barbarian
"Super-Powered" Main Page
The above set contains BOTH of the Arnold
Schwarzenegger "Conan" movies.
It's a good enough movie, but it tends to drag in places. I'm not
too much into the "epic" type of movies. They tend to have a lot
of filler to give it substance. I DO, however, really love
Sandahl Bergman as the ill-fated love of Conan named Valeria.
She's such a great character with so much promise. I really was
heartbroken when I first saw this movie years ago.
Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as Conan in this, the
first of his two Conan movies. He's a bit too stoic in this
movie. He improved quite a bit in "Conan the Destroyer".
Nevertheless, he is a physically impressive being and when you see him
on the screen fighting these incredible enemies you are more than
convinced. Good job done.
And James Earl Jones as the nemesis Thulsa Doom
makes for an interesting villain.
