An average movie

When I was a kid, I used to love those Conan flicks. A couple of years ago, I watched again the first installment and even thought this time, the limited acting skills of Arnold Schwarzenegger was pretty obvious, I still thought it was thoroughly enjoyable, even after all these years. This sequel, on the other hand, always had a rather lousy reputation but I still wanted to check it out again out of sheer nostalgia. Honestly, I don’t think it was that bad at all. Indeed, in my opinion, it remains a fun fantasy feature with some nice atmosphere. I also thought that Wilt Chamberlain and Grace Jones were actually well cast, even though just like Schwarzenegger, they were far from being some great actors. At least, they looked pretty awesome. Eventually, Olivia d’Abo turned out to be the weakest of the bunch but since she was just only 15 years old at the time, I’ll give her some slack. Eventually, the only real issues I had was that the jokes were all pretty lame, and above all, their biggest mistake was to have toned down the grittiness to make it a family friendly production. Still, in spite of its flaws, I still believe it is a decent fantasy feature and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
