Sunday Morning Movie: Conan the Destroyer (1984)

Conan the Destroyer (1984)
Directed by Richard Fleischer

For breakfast: Egg in a holes

This sequel to Conan the Barbarian doesn’t have near as much going for it as its predecessor. Rather than taking what worked, they tried to make this one appeal to a more family-oriented crowd, which leaves me wondering why. Conan is not some family friendly fantasy story and trying to make it so just takes all of the fun out of it. Yea, Arnold is back, but he’s not enough to make up for the bad script or bad direction. The addition of Grace Jones or Wilt Chamberlain don’t really help matters either. The icing on the cake is that this dvd presentation is non-anamorphic, thanks a lot.

Grade: C
