In the Spanish dubbed voices there are two mismatches with the original English: the first happens during the narration in the prologue, where "hijos de Aryas" (sons of Aryas) was misspelled as "soles de Aries" (suns of Aries). The second happens when Conan and Subotai meets by first time with Valeria, after Conan misspelling "No eres un guarda" (you're not a guard) as "No eres una diosa" (you're not a god), creating an unwitting third mismatch about god/goddess. Although there is no explanation about these changes, it were caused probably due to phonetics similarities. See more »
At various points in the movie the sound of the common loon (a type of duck) is heard. It has a haunting, mystical sound. The movie takes place in arid, desert conditions, however the common loon is a waterfowl that only inhabits lakes and other bodies of water. Loons would not be heard in the kinds of settings depicted in the film. See more »
Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of. And unto this, Conan, destined to wear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!

Arnold has entertained me in many movies over the years (The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, True Lies, Collateral Damage, Eraser), so I can forgive his pitiful acting in this film and just sit back and enjoy it.
Of course, the best thing about the film was the presence of Sandahl Bergman, originally a Golddigger from "The Dean Martin Show". She can act and did a very good job of it.
I also enjoyed Mako (The Sand Pebbles) and Gerry Lopez, who I guess gave up acting for surfing.
It is just a plain guilty pleasure that shows some great sword fighting.
