7M Pictures

essential 80s cinema with some amazing elements, including the unflinching violence for the time and the brilliant score by Basil Poledouris

Its magnificence stems from the very properties we should be condemning with all our might.

R. L. Shaffer

A classic tale is told through fascinating visuals, cheesy characters and good old fashioned muscle-bound strength.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A film that only wants to be described by the single adjective "awesome", though "epic" would do in a pinch.

Emanuel Levy

This primitive, mythic epic catapulted Schwarzenegger to movie stardom after being a famous body-builder.

...ironically undone by its star, a preening peacock eager to sow the seeds of self-parody with a well-placed camel punch.

Fernando F. Croce

Visualizing Robert E. Howard's creation in the midst of the Reagan era is an offer the auteur can't refuse

OK sandals and loin cloth muscle adventure...which made Arnold a star.

| Original Score: 3/5

New Times

Balls-to-the-wall swordplay flicks don't get much better than this

| Original Score: 5/5

May 28, 2005
Scott Weinberg

A big, sweaty, pulpy adventure tale that's both exciting AND unintentionally amusing.

| Original Score: 4/5

April 3, 2005
Christopher Null

When it comes to the great lines (and mottos) of cinema, it doesn't get much better than this.

Not since Bambi's mother was killed has there been a cannier movie for kids than Conan the Barbarian.

Conan the Barbarian is an extremely long, frequently incoherent, ineptly staged adventure-fantasy set in a prehistoric past.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Let's face it: Arnold is well-cast. But the movie takes itself way too seriously.

| Original Score: 2/5

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Too dull to be unintentionally funny.

| Original Score: 2/5

Fred Topel

Arnold's first real movie (not counting Hercules and The Villain). Very serious, needs more humor, but a good debut.

| Original Score: 3/5

Muddy and serious, but refreshing compared to other comic book movies.

| Original Score: 3/5

Schwarzenegger has probably never been better-cast.

John Milius is skilled at allowing his story to unfold as though you were reading a pulp novel, never letting you get bored. He always throws something at you that's reminiscent of the best in fantasy novels.

...should appeal to most anyone with a bent for fantasy and swashbuckling derring-do.
