Based on a character created by Robert E. Howard, this fast-paced, occasionally humorous sequel to Conan the Barbarian features the hero (Arnold Schwarzenegger) as he is commissioned by the evil queen Taramis (Sarah Douglas) to safely escort a teen princess (Olivia D'Abo) and her powerful bodyguard (Wilt Chamberlain) to a far away castle to retrieve the magic Horn of Dagon. Unknown to Conan, the queen plans to sacrifice the princess when she returns and inherit her kingdom after the bodyguard

There's a goofy MST-3K quality about Conan the Destroyer that aims for family friendly but tries to be sexy as well, something we saw a lot of in the 80s.
Conan the Destroyer is a rather silly follow-up, with less raw emotion, less excitement and far too many dumb sidekicks.
What happens when you take everything that makes Conan the Barbarian memorable, and strip it down to a light-hearted, PG-rated version of itself... stupid and boring and generally unintelligible.
There are still enjoyable elements in it, but it feels as different from its predecessor as a Roger Moore Bond does compared to a Sean Connery.
Pretty bad, but not as bad as people say it is.
More jokey and less intense than the original.
Has some serious value as camp, but it's a lot less brawny than the original.
