I guess it is up to me to defend this much-maligned Sequel. When even your Star isn't a fan, there are issues.
This is Conan the Destroyer, the 1984 Sequel to John Milius' Film and the middle part of a failed Trilogy. Still waiting for Conan the Conqueror/King, Arnie and company!
The Title Character returns, but his comrade is not with him. Maybe they dropped in and out like on the Cartoon Show. When a Queen promises to restore his lady love, he's willing to do just about anything for her. What if the person he's protecting is later meant to be sacrificed though?
Richard Fleischer takes over on this one, bringing with him a long Career full of Films you wouldn't associate with one person. For instance, he did Doctor Doolittle in 1967, but also made a Biopic of Che Guevara (Che!) in 1969. Weird, no?
So, is this Film actually good or not? To find out, read on...
the Queen of Starring in Sequels) hires him to protect her Niece on her journey to retrieve a magical MacGuffin. In return, she will restore his lost love.
Trivia Note: she was on Justice League Unlimited, as was Mako (who plays the Wizard), Tracey Walter (who plays the Thief). Douglas herself appeared on its predecessor- Superman: The Animated Series.
Of course, he can! It's going to look bad-ass though, so still check it out.
Do I have a soft spot for the 'pulpier' Sequels in a Series (like Temple of Doom)? Clearly.
