With Arnold Schwarzenegger’s star rising in the early 80s, the Austrian bodybuilder filmed his first sequel, a follow-up to his 1982 role in the John Millius sword-and-sorcery epic Conan the Barbarian. Based on the works of Robert E. Howard, the Raffaella De Laurentiis production brought back Mako from the first film and introduced Grace Jones, Wilt Chamberlain, Tracey Walter, and Olivia d’Abo to the Hyborian Age. Written by two Marvel Comics authors, with less gore and more humor than the original, director Richard Fliescher stepping in for Millius, and creature effects by Carlo Rambaldi, the film was less financially successful than the first, perhaps overshadowed by Schwarzenegger’s true breakout role in another film released the same year: The Terminator. Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of. The franchise was done in two, and hither came Conan… the Destoyer!
