| A must see for every Schwarzenegger fan
From the opening I liked this one. There is a real sense for adventure something that can be hard to find.

My only problem is the ending and how long it is, for I think it becomes to long for it's own good.

Trivia

(at around 1h 17 mins) The scene with the vultures at the Tree of Woe made use of both real birds and a fake one. The real ones were placed in the branches of the tree, while the one Conan bites was mechanical. The dummy bird's feathers and wings were from a dead vulture, and its control mechanisms were routed inside the false tree.


Quotes

The Wizard: 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...


Goofs

(at around 1h 19 mins) Before the battle for Conan's soul, as the wizard is painting his hands, we see that this warrior and thief has very nicely manicured fingernails- which we also see on Valeria after the battle as she is running her hands over Conan.

Alternate Versions

Region 2 Japanese Ultimate Edition features the fully uncut International version, including all scenes missing from shortened version, such as the extra scene with Conan and Subotai before the battle on the mounds, the Princess leading Conan back through Doom's fortress, the extended ending, and the epilogue narrative by Akiro, as well as a DTS track. The Ultimate Edition also includes several deleted scenes:

  • when Conan and Subotai first enter the village, they are shown stopping by a vendor (played by director John Milius) selling lizard-on-a-stick. The vendor says, "Want food? This is on a stick...fresh. Quick, there are many to feed!" Shortly thereafter in the film, Conan remarks that the food is good, to which Subotai replies, "You have no idea how long it's been there!"
  • a scene of silhouettes on a wall fighting
  • a cut scene of King Osric being attacked and killed in his throne-room by (presumably) Doom's soldiers
  • another cut scene of King Osric's demise, shot from a different angle, which ends with him staring at the reflection of his dying self in a mirror astride the throne, which he then shatters with his sword before collapsing An outtake is also included that takes place just after Conan is freed from bondage, and is climbing the rocks leading to the Atlantean General's tomb, and is being pursued by wild dogs. As Arnold is climbing, one of the dogs reaches him, biting him, and a crew member runs on-screen to intervene as Arnold shouts "Goddamnit!" in pain.
