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 will help them procure the horn 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

Upon the film's climax, Conan is seen in the closing epilogue sitting upon his throne many years after the events of this film as a king by his own hand. He is decorated as such and has by his side two weapons, a spear/staff and a sword. The sword however is not his Atlantean sword he discovered in the first film that he carries and uses throughout out that film and this one. It is in fact the sword shown being made by his father at the opening prologue of Conan the Barbarian (1982) that was intended to be given to Conan that was subsequently stolen after his parents were killed. The sword was rediscovered and broken by Conan himself during a duel many years later and the broken sword was used to behead Thulsa Doom who had been responsible for the deaths of Conan's family. The sword was then discarded and tossed away and left to burn along with the ruins of Thulsa Doom's castle and was never seen again. See more »
When Zula is fighting Bombaata, she leaps from the saddle and throws herself on him, knocking his head-circlet off from the impact of collision. In the very next shot, Bombaata's circlet is back on his head as he struggles with Zula. See more »
I don't know why it got such a low rating, I really enjoyed Conan the
Destroyer. I wasn't as good as the first one, but it was a very good
sequel, and definitely worth watching. Good acting, good music, the
special effects could have been better, but they were still good. WATCH
THIS! Arnold did a really good job with this movie. I think one of the
reasons people thought it wasn't good was because it was either
confusing or boring. It wasn't boring at all. And it was a little
confusing because it is a fantasy adventure movie!
Look at Lord of the Rings, that is fantasy, only everybody loves that!
