The wandering barbarian, Conan, alongside his goofy rogue pal, Malak, are tasked with escorting Queen Taramis' virgin niece, Princess Jehnna and her bodyguard, Bombaata, to a mystical island fortress. They must retrieve a magical crystal that legends say can awaken the god of dreams, Dagoth. Along the way, Conan reunites with the wise wizard, Akiro and befriends the fierce female fighter, Zula. Together the heroes face ancient traps, powerful Wizards, plots of betrayal, and even the dream god, Dagoth, himself! Written by

The part of Malak was originally assigned to David L. Lander. Due to both his deteriorating health from the onset of Multiple Sclerosis, and difficulties with the director, Lander was let go, and the part was recast with Tracey Walter. See more »

I first saw this movie when I was probably 5 and because of it I am now a giant fantasy/adventure fan. I love movies where the lead character uses his sword to solve his problems and both Conan movies do this. This my favorite of the two because the battle sequences are more frequent, the characters are more rememberable, and the music rocks. I have always been a fan of movie soundtracks and this one is my favorite. Do not rent this if you want to see a deep and complicated plot. Rent this if you want to see Arnold kick some a**! Every set, fight scene, and character from the Scorpion King was based on this film. I love this movie!
