Excellent film de Fantasy des années 1980. Il a relativement bien vieilli. Plusieurs dialogues sont excellents (parfois très drôle). Certaines scènes sont magnifiques et font un peu penser, étonamment, au Seigneur des Anneaux, notamment lorsque Conan se promène dans les plaines de l'est. La trame sonore est tout simplement fantastique. Film léger recommandé. PS : C'est un film très violent.
This film is rich in scope and is definitely epic, but when it comes to the small moments and the story in general, they're brushed very quickly. As a result, it's very hard to get emotionally invested in the characters and the journey. You get invested in the scope. However, the fight scenes are very good and so is the music, even if it doesn't always fit well.
Remembered this as being total camp but was surprised at how well it held up. Howard probably rolling in his grave at the liberties taken but Milius served up a pretty good adaptation. Effects awfully dated now but fair for the time period. Jones a good villian and Schwarzenegger well cast as the monosylabic primative. Excellent score by Basil Poledouris that has been often recycled since.
The Schwarzenegger/Milius commentary track on the DVD is occasionally astonishing, although if you take a drink every time Arnold says 'Look at this' or 'Look at that' your liver should be the color and texture of creamed corn by the time he gets around to talking about how fun the scene where the witch seduces him really was
