But after the long buildup to seeing the adult Conan, when ol' Arnie opened his mouth with the line "Crush your enemies, drive them away and hear the lamentations of their women!", or what ever it was, I burst out laughing uncontrollably! I probably would've been chased out of the theater accept the rest of the audience joined in with me! Schwarzenegger's acting was sooo bad in that movie. I became an Arnie fan with Terminator , though, but Conan the Barbarian will always be a (near) comedy to me.

The decapitation of his mother was very affecting and a great, great shot.
He was, and it was great film of the early 80's. Shame Conan The Destoryer sucked so hard. The only flim that was more of a disappointment was Mad Max Beyond Thundedrdome.
