Mongol General: What is best in life?
Conan: To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.
This film gets two stars instead of one for the above dialogue and above dialogue alone.
A prime example of fully established world - where set paintings, music, make-up effects, action and the cast make a whole that feels organic, as if this world already existed and will continue to exist after the end credits. It's both seductive and repellent, but it welcomes many happy returns and recaptures. As the ending approaches, it leans towards "Apocalypse Now" but it never betrays its action-adventure domain
First watched when I was way too young. Love this movie still. Everything feels so strange and far far away, all the different accents and the look and simplicity of everything.. it's silly and not too peopled and way way better than the remake.
