Arnold Schwarzenegger returned to the role that provided his breakthrough as the muscle-bound mythical hero in Conan The Barbarian (1982) . . . but the kitsch magic of the John Milius original was missing this time around.
The requisite number of ugly villains, beautiful temptresses and doe-eyed heroines were all present and correct, and Schwarzenegger didn’t have to do too much acting and director Richard Fleischer kept the often violent action flowing smoothly.
Look out for Grace Jones as a lethal warrior.
