Product Description

Sexy action superstar Kevin Sorbo (TV's Hercules: The Legendary Journeys) slams evil as Kull, The Conqueror, a fearless barbarian warrior, who through skill and bravery, becomes king. Worshiped by his subjects for his mercy, adored by the beautiful fortuneteller Zerata (Karina Lombard) for his valour, Kull quickly becomes the mortal enemy of the forces of darkness, led by the villainous Akivasha (Tia Carrere).

If you're into sword-and-sorcery tales, look no further than this critically underrated big-screen fantasy based on the fiction of Conan the Barbarian creator Robert E. Howard. It was a troubled production and the outcome is far different from the more serious and intelligent epic that screenwriter Charles Pogue had originally conceived. Still, this is a giddy, energetic throwback to the Ray Harryhausen movie fantasies of the 1950s and '60s, and it's a perfect vehicle for Kevin Sorbo, the hunky star of TV's Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Sorbo brings an appropriate combination of depth and physical agility to the role of Kull (son of Conan), but he and director John Nicolella know better than to take this stuff too seriously. The movie's humor is nicely integrated into the dialogue without resorting to lame punch lines, and Tia Carrere is enjoyably campy as the evil goddess who lures Kull from his favorite concubine (Karina Lombard) as she plots to overthrow the kingdom of Valusia. Playwright Harvey Fierstein also provides comic relief in a scene-stealing role, and with an abundance of black magic, stunning Slovakian locations, and grand battles of good versus evil, this heroic adventure is more entertaining than you might expect. --Jeff Shannon

    Format: DVD
    Kull, wise-cracking barbarian of Atlantis, somehow finds himself in the midst of a distant kingdom's strife, and before he knows it, manages to earn the respect, and the crown, of the recently deceased king - who dies, mind you, at the end of Kull's sword. As Kull claims the throne, there is much plotting to have him removed, and secretly the nobles who long for his place ally themselves with an evil witch who has only recently been resurrected, and plots to bring back the ancient demons who once ruled the land before the coming of mankind. The key to thwarting her wicked designs rests in the Breath of Valka, which can only be found across the sea upon the Isle of Ice. Naturally, Kull must go there and seek it out, not only that he might maintain his throne, but also that he might save the realm from eternal darkness and demonic rule.
    Originally written as a third installation in the much more respectable Conan series of films, Kull the Conquerer is utterly passionless and devoid of spirit. It is truly as mediocre as fantasy films get, and given the recent crop, that is certainly saying something. Still, I can appreciate almost any effort in this untapped genre, and therefore Kull does taste as good to me as even a relatively tasteless ort of food can to a starving man. It does have its moments, but they should have come far more often.
    Kull does distance itself from a mere Conan the Barbarian clone quite nicely, however - Kevin Sorbo plays a far less grim warrior who seems to think before he strikes. The world itself is less like Conan's and more like what we have seen in Dragonheart. Given that Kull is from some of the people who gave us Dragonheart, this isn't particularly surprising.

    11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Garett Kutcher on January 26, 2000
    Format: VHS Tape
    Okay first and foremost, like the Conan movies this one had nothing to do with the Robert E. Howard story save the main character`s name. This is, of course, an incredible dissappointment. Mr. Howard invented Sword-and-Sorcery as we know it and none of the movies made from his characters (Conan, Red Sonja, and now Kull) have even come close to measuring up to his stories. However, if you enter the movie in the mindset that it is another barbarian movie and don't think about the writings, the movie is fun and can be enjoyable. It does not do Howard justice, but is good as barbarian movies go. Tia Carrie trying to copy Darth Vader though seemed a bit off.

    7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Muzzlehatch VINE VOICE on January 9, 2010
    Format: DVD
    KULL THE CONQUEROR started out life as what would have been the third "Conan" movie, a (very loose, no doubt) adaptation of Robert E. Howard's 'Hour of the Dragon', the only full-length Conan novel finished by his creator, in which Conan has ascended to the throne of the mighty kingdom of Aquilonia - though the crown lies uneasily on his barbaric head. But Arnold Schwarzenegger, by this time an enormous star, had no interest in going back to his movie roots, so Kull - another Robert E. Howard character that Universal had the film rights to - was substituted for Conan, with no real regard for fidelity to the character at all.

    Enough about that. Let's face it, if you worry too much about Hollywood being "accurate", particularly in adapting the work of long-dead pulp writers, you aren't going to like much of anything in the fantasy genre. I had fun with this, despite its ridiculous beginning - barbarian Kull (Kevin Sorbo, who seems to grow into the role over the course of the film) after failing to pass the test to become a legionnaire for lack of royal blood (he's a barbarian from Atlantis, not a noble from the kingdom of Valusia, where the film is set), somehow makes his way into the palace and ends up fighting the dying and insane king (Sven-Ole Thorsen) who in his last act anoints Kull as his successor, much to the chagrin of Taligaro (Thomas Ian Griffith), the head of the guards who had embarassed Kull in the first scene and is himself one of the contenders for the throne.

    2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Russell W. Sanders on June 1, 2011
    Format: DVD
    This film is a mixed bag. It plays like an updated Roger Corman film, taking the King Kull storyline and mashing it into a bit of a mess. All the right names appear in all the right places but beyond that, you don't have much of Robert E. Howard's stories. At least half of the film is taking from the Conan series rather than the Kull tales. Unless you're a Howard fan, you won't notice the shift.

    On the positive side, there are some fun elements at play. The Flame of Archeron "warning of Godless times" give the film a proper aspect, and the witch queen is seductively vicious in just the way she needs to be. Some of the sets are quite good and the fighting sequences are at least acceptable. The story moves along at a good pace and develops well, with the proper mix of magic and hacking with blades. The core of Robert Howard's "Hour of the Dragon" appear here and are fairly well done for those that didn't see the same storyline in "The Sword and the Sorcerer". The women are downright hot and provide enough eye candy to smooth over other problems.

    On the negative, the film is about as serious as Smokey and the Bandit. It opens with rock and roll music and within minutes, starts introducing less-than-stellar performances by secondary actors that gives the film its Roger Corman feel. None of the material is to be taken at much more than a comedic level, which is an odd delivery for a character that was originally written to be darker than Conan. A few supporting characters are so over the top they more properly belong in Monty Python than an sword adventure story. That makes it hard to accept any of the danger or any of the challenges that face Kull.

    In the end, its a fun film but not a good representation of Robert E. Howard's writings or the early Hyborean World in general.
