John Milius and Oliver Stone wrote this sword-and-sandal revenge tale based on the Robert E. Howard pulp stories. Schwarzenegger has probably never been better-cast.
"Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of the women!" When it comes to the great lines (and mottos) of cinema, it doesn't get much better than this. Arnold Schwarzenegger's role is a giddy and absurd adventure in a fantasy kingdom that mixes about a dozen different mythos, and it's nothing if not one heck of a party.
One of the first of the mostly execrable wave of 1980s swords-and-sorcery flicks, Conan the Barbarian is one of the best. Conan the Barbarian is also notable for making Arnold Schwarzenegger a star. Normally a laughable actor, Ah-nold was born for two roles. One is the robotic Terminator, obviously, and the second, Robert E. Howard's imperturbable muscle-bound bruiser, Conan.
Balls-to-the-wall swordplay flicks don't get much better than this. If you haven't seen this yet nows your chance !
