Excerpt: Blu-ray isn't always the superior format when choosing how to watch a film. Blu-rays are superior in technology but not necessarily the best in terms of content and this disc proves my point. There is no argument that this is a great movie but that is not what I am reviewing.
Excerpt: This remastered edition is plenty of fun. I felt like I was watching a brand new movie. Refreshing to re watch this over again. Classic Arnold is still a thrill to watch. Talk about star power.
Excerpt: I saw this film 6 times in the cinema back in 1982 and I remember it quite clearly. The Bluray perfectly duplicates the shitty anamorphic optics used to photograph this movie. There is no grain reduction and the image is spectacular.

Excerpt: Like its star attraction, the bulging mass that is Arnold Schwarzenegger, 'Conan the Barbarian' has a one-track mind for fantasy-adventure pandemonium, and it follows through with tons of heart and determination. Though not a faithful adaptation of the Robert E.
Summary: After the murder of his father and the destruction of his village, Conan the Cimmerian vows to avenge the deeds and travels across Hybrid, finding allies and enemies along the way. This movie has mindless gory and stupid characters.
Excerpt: Long before "Game Of Thrones" and its R-Rated fantasy trappings came "Conan The Barbarian" - still an all time classic sword and sorcery movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger is perfect in the title roll and will forever be Conan.
Summary: I see a lot of reviews that just aren't helpfull. I'm not going to explain what the story is, I'm going to tell you what the dvd version is like. First of all, if you own an old copy on vhs, you will think you are watching a new movie. This is the best you are going to see this movie.
Excerpt: Recommended, though certain aspects of both the video and audio are suspect. Proceed with caution. Note: This particular release has received heavy criticism in regards to its DTS-HD MA 5.1 track not sounding "true" (in form) to the nature of the original mono audio mix.
