Following his parents' savage murder, young Conan (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is captured by the cold-blooded Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones) and spends the next fifteen years in agony, first chained to the Wheel of Pain and then enslaved as a Pit Fighter. Rather than allowing this brutal fate to conquer him, Conan builds an incomparable body and an indomitable spirit—both of which he needs when he suddenly finds himself a free man. Aided by his companions Subotai the Mongol (Gerry Lopez) and Valeria, Queen of Thieves (Sandahl Bergman), Conan sets out to solve the "riddle of steel," seize ultimate power and, finally, take revenge on the warlord who killed his family.

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.
