Storyline

In this animated tale, a tiny village is destroyed by a surging glacier, which serves as the deadly domain for the evil Ice Lord, Nekron. The only survivor is a young warrior, Larn, who vows to avenge this act of destruction. The evil continues, however, as Nekron's palace of ice heads straight towards Fire Keep, the great fortress ruled by the good King Jarol. When Jarol's beautiful daughter, Teegra, is abducted by Nekron's sub-human ape-like creatures, Larn begins a daring search for her. What results is a tense battle between good and evil, surrounded by the mystical elements of the ancient past. Written by Rone Barton Lokarr <sandbox2@ix.netcom.com>

Trivia

Two young artists worked on the backgrounds for this film. Both went on to be famous in their fields: Thomas Kinkade (known as the "Painter of Light") and James Gurney, creator and painter of the popular "Dinotopia" series of illustrated novels. They painted the backgrounds exclusively in the style of Frank Frazetta, who was a producer on this movie and whose art inspired it. See more »

Goofs

Deathwolf rescues Larn from Nekron's iceberg, then both head to Fire Keep. They proceed to convince Jarol to lend him the DragonHawks so they can return to the glacier to rescue Teegra and kill Nekron. Why didn't they simply infiltrate the glacier while they were still there? After all, Larn got close enough to fire an arrow at Nekron. Deathwolf could have killed him there instead of wasting time heading back to Fire Keep. See more »

Quotes

Taro: Don't look up. We are riders of Fire Keep. We pay no heed to such trash.

A novelty of 80's nostalgia!
19 September 2001 | by (Milwaukee) – See all my reviews

Why this movie has all but disappeared into obscurity is an absolute crime. "Conan" is perhaps the only Sword and Sorcery movie better. The brutal violence, cool character designs, and good pacing, make this one of the best fantasies around. It is certainly the greatest animated movie aimed at a more adult audience that I have ever seen. This is not similar to Bakshi's usual frenetic style. It's quite a departure for Bakshi, and in my opinion his best work. I hope that this film gets the recognition it deserves.
