Through the history of mankind, the times that are most recorded in mythology and song are those of great deeds and fantastic adventures. Such a time was the Hyborean Age. Such a tale is the story of "Conan The Barbarian".Cimmerian Conan (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is captured as a child after his parents' savage murder by raiding Vanir led by Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones), head also of the malignant snake-cult of Set. Fifteen yeas' agony, first chained to the Wheel of Pain grinding grain and then enslaved as a Pit Fighter, forge a magnificent body and indomitable spirit. Freed miraculously one day by his owner, Conan, with his companions Subotai the Mongol (Gerry Lopez) and Valeria, Queen of Thieves (Sandahl Bergman), sets forth upon his quest to learn "the riddle of steel" which, his father has prophesied, will confer ultimate power, and to kill the arch-villain Thulsa Doom.

Update: The blu-ray version took away stuff that was included in the extended release. The ending was pretty much exactly the same as the extended version, which I hear a lot of people complaining about even though it actually fills out the story and explains not only what happened to the princess, but also how Conan managed to infiltrate the citadel. Unfortunately it is excluding the scene with Conan and Subotai having dialogue before the big finale battle, and the few small scenes that were extended in the earlier parts of the movie. So it's basically the theatrical release, with the extended ending. The blu-ray transfer itself is pretty good looking, with only a few dark scenes still grainy which seems pretty normal for older movies being remastered to HD. Being that this is my all time favorite movie, I don't mind owning two versions of it.
Supposedly, there's a sequel in the works for this film, starring Schwarzenegger as Conan (The Legend of Conan). That's something to look forward to.
