I agree on your comment, BTW. Milius seems to be just like his old pal Lucas, only interested if there's some big money on it... I have a great book by Peter Biskind wich reads about that bunch of filmakers (Milius, Spielberg, Coppola, Lucas, etc) and their huge greed. They raised quickly, made a number of awesome pieces of art, then their talent vanished by their greed and fortune and glory hunger... It was, indeed, -the book at least states it that way- that very same greed wich made them do their awesome first movies, though.
In the video, Arnold looks way more interesting AND INTELLIGENT than in "The Destroyer" movie. Such a shame the Conan character there looked so retarded... It could have been more like the true Arnold, with sense of humor and same time a more mature attitude.
Today I received the "Conan the Destroyer" novel by Jordan. I read a little of it and seems it works way better than the movie. Some pieces are explained as why Conan doesn't want to fuck now, or why Conan really refuses the throne at the end... Seems like a very superficial novel though, and not too adult, but at least it fills the holes the movie has wich makes it even more stupid.
Grace Jones was actually very good. Anybody else agrees with me there? She was actually the only true credible character in the whole movie.
The rest... meh! The princess behave like a 80's modern bimbo... Who could believe she was a primordial princess.... Malak sucked Jar-Jar-Binks time.
Bombaata was innexpressive as a piece of wood.
And Akiro, well, Mako was simply lovable but his role here was a piece of crap.
One thing to add, Arnold did this movie cause it was, INDEED, PAYED VACATIONS. He had married Maria and was having the honeymoon on Mexico while filming. So, YES, he did it for the money. Absolutely.
