In the 1982 fantasy-action film Conan the Destroyer, Arnold Schwarzenegger reprises his role as the titular warrior in a sequel to the 1982 film Conan the Barbarian. The film is directed by Richard Fleischer and co-stars James Earl Jones and Max von Sydow. The story picks up shortly after the events of the first film. Conan is summoned by a queen named Taramis, who offers him a quest in exchange for his freedom. The quest involves retrieving a magical key that will unlock a powerful treasure. Accompanied by a band of misfits and warriors, including Malak the thief (Tracey Walter), Zula the warrior woman (Grace Jones), and the wizard Akiro (Mako), Conan sets off to complete the quest.

Their journey takes them through a variety of perilous landscapes, including deserts, swamps, and deep forests. Along the way, they encounter a variety of adversaries, including a group of elite guards called the Red Knights and a resurrected sorcerer named Toth-Amon (Pat Roach).

In addition to these foes, Conan must also contend with the treachery of his companions, particularly the duplicitous queen Taramis. As the quest progresses, Conan gradually learns more about the true nature of the treasure and the key, and the role he will ultimately play in a larger conflict.

The film features plenty of action and swordplay, as well as more fantastical elements like magic and monsters. Schwarzenegger brings the same stoic intensity to his role as Conan, but also shows a softer side, particularly in his interactions with the young princess Jehnna (Olivia d'Abo).

The supporting cast is also memorable, particularly James Earl Jones as the villainous Thulsa Doom, who returns in a cameo. Max von Sydow is also noteworthy as the wise old king Osric.

Overall, Conan the Destroyer is a fun, action-packed adventure that will satisfy fans of the fantasy genre and Schwarzenegger enthusiasts alike. While not as iconic as the original film, it offers plenty of thrills and excitement for those in search of a classic sword-and-sorcery tale.

Conan the Destroyer is a 1984 adventure movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 43 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.9 and a MetaScore of 43.
