Product Description

Product Description

Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as Conan, the unconquerable warrior king in this thrilling tale of swords vs sorcery. This time he joins forces with a wizard (Mako), a warrior (NBA star Wilt Chamberlain), a runaway (Olivia D'Abo) and a renegade (Grace Jones) to defeat the evil Queen Taramis (Sarah Douglas). When Queen Taramis promises to bring Conan's beloved Valeria back from the dead, our hero must first bring before her highness a jewel-encrusted horn and a beautiful young princess. What Conan doesn't know is that the wicked queen plans to use the horn to awaken the demon god Dagoth and sacrifice the princess to him. Faced with enemies both mortal and supernatural, Conan must summon his super-human strength to battle Taramis and even Dagoth himself!

From Amazon.co.uk

The dark, brooding tone of Conan the Barbarian is replaced in this rousing sequel by a lighter, more humorous tone and one of the campiest casts ever assembled. In Conan the Destroyer, our massively muscular hero (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is assigned by a duplicitous queen (Sarah Douglas) to escort a virgin princess (Olivia d'Abo) on a treacherous trek to a crystal palace where they will retrieve a priceless gemstone. Basketball champ and self-described Lothario Wilt Chamberlain plays Bombaata, a warrior sent on a secret mission to kill Conan, and the androgynous Grace Jones plays Zula, a wild woman who becomes Conan's loyal ally. Some consider this sequel a disappointment but the film makes no apologies for its silliness, and that's the key to its success as gloriously pulpy entertainment. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you like myself were hoping for a definitive collector's edition,then think again!

While the packaging is all very lovely and you do get a very nice detailed booklet and some nice postcards,the actual disc is a dreadful release.For a start the opening fight scene is cut to ribbons,the scene where Conan knocks out the camel is again cut and really for a collector's edition,you would expect these scenes to be re-instated.

The extra features on this disc are particularly lame.There is a really poor quiz,but the crowning glory of bad is the commentary.Sarah Douglas does little more than ramble on and on about how wonderful she is and very little that she mentions has anything to do with the movie at all.

Kim Newman chimes in every so often in a really cynical manner,and overall,this is easily the worst commentary ever added to a dvd.

In conclusion,if you want a copy of this film,then hunt out the vastly superior region 4 Australian version or make do with the ordinary region one version from America.

I've been searching for a better release of Conan The Destroyer, i bought the UK release but it had both mediocre picture and sound quality and a rather cheap menu. This one is a major improvement, the DTS-HD Master 5.1 soundtrack is well worth the switch, and i even think the picture quality is better than the UK release (High Fliers) and it has a better menu.
If you're a fan of this movie, go for the US release (Universal) It's regionfree and uncut.

I've come around a bit - A BIT - to this film over the years, but it's still ultimately a weak sequel to one of the best films in it's genre. John Milius's Conan the Barbarian is still an excellent film that's aged well and holds up to many, many repeat viewings. Conan the Destroyer is extremely lightweight and thrill-free. However, as has been said before, if Milius's film was Robert E. Howard's Conan, this one is more in line with the Marvel Comics version, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Don't think of it as a continuation of the first movie, but another take, and you'll enjoy what fun is there.

The UK blu-ray has a number of problems, chiefly the picture is not as good as this, the audio is (lossless) stereo ONLY, the camel punch is cut out in a particularly clumsy way, and none of the extras from the wonderful Conan The Destroyer (Collector's Edition) [DVD] are carried over. This disc has little to no extras (a trailer, if I recall correctly) but the presentation is top notch, with flawless picture and sound.

This is the one to get if you want this movie.

Conan The Destroyer - A classic. Have always been into this genre of film. Plus loads of extras in the bonus or specials section.
This is a must for anyone who is really into this type of film, regardless of whether Arnie is in it. Already had dvd, so am merely upgrading. But, is plenty worth it 'cause of all the extra bits and info that comes with it. Well worth it

Where the first movie was a dark and gloom riddled pre history affair this version is sillier, lighter and more fun. Ultimately this could have been another step in a movie franchise, but sadly it wasn't. It has less of the original movie's "reliance" on the books as a source. It's a great B movie, Saturday matinee movie, with the wobbly swords, over involved Grace Jones and ludicrously cheap monsters, It manages to transcend this and come out as something you won't be unhappy you spent the time watching. Good Saturday afternoon fair.

Arnold returns to the role which made him a future A list star. Conan, still mourning his warrior love who dies in the first film is recruited to guide a virgin empress to a new kingdom in return for his love being brought back to life. Not as good as the original but still offers some decent action and dry humour. Blu Ray quality is improved over the DVD release but don't expect a plethora of extras.

I wonder why there was so many small cuts in fight sequence which distort the movie? I have the first DVD edition and i noticed it is not exactly the same version in 1983, so i didnt like it. The orignal version there was Conan hit his enemy horse during fight battle and a camel also, which was cut here.

I did purchased this edition because they mentioned it is a COLLECTOR EDITION and i thought it should be full without any delet or cut shots. But unfortuantly it is the same as first DVD release, except in better picture and sound quality. For this im rating this edition only 3 stars.

From the outset this is more fantastical, more comedic and more straightforward than ‘Conan The Barbarian’. Gone with character development, we are thrust into a quest with established characters and one in which Schwarzenegger has far more delivery than his first outing, providing more chances to see his developing acting status and action material.

It’s an enjoyable adventure and doesn’t let up until the very end, something missed from the first film in sacrifice for character development and laying down foundations for future instalments. Here we get the narrative direction from the off, we know who the good and bad guys are and that’s it. Cue lots of fantasy and bloody battles as the textbook heroes of a warrior, a princess, a thief, a wizard, a tribeswoman and a bodyguard take on a host of evil in their way.

There are lots of decent action sequences here, some may be a little ruined by the injected “comedy” from the bumbling sidekick in the guise of Tracey Walter who adds to the “family” appeal to this outing, but Arnie seems to be on finer form than before and is a far more enjoyable hero to watch this time around.

A decent supporting cast help populate the fantasy world with the perfectly added Grace Jones, Mako and Olivia d’Abo. Lots of ingenious sets and a rousing soundtrack make this very enjoyable indeed, although it does seem a little disjointed as it plays out like the finale takes place not even half-way in the film, and so there seems to be a little lag in the second half, but it picks up again for the flimsy finale features Arnie taking on a villain from what looks like the Power Rangers – but the intention is there, so it’s not THAT bad.
