Conan is aided in his quest for revenge by the beautiful Valeria (Sandahl Bergman), a savvy swordswoman whose character is one of the best ever female swashbucklers portrayed on film, and the wily Subotai (Gerry Lopez), a cunning thief and Conan's loyal, upbeat companion.

Stunning scenery and an exceptionally beautiful soundtrack by composer Basil Poledouris combine to make this a must-see epic adventure. Also worth watching for actor William Smith's brief cameo as Conan's father.
