Conan the Destroyer ★★½ 1984 (PG)

Conan is manipulated by Queen Tamaris into searching for a treasure. In return she'll bring Conan's love Valeria back to life. On his trip he meets Jones and Chamberlain, who later give him a hand. Excellent special effects, good humor, camp fun, somewhat silly finale. Sequel to the better “Conan the Barbarian.” 101m/C VHS, DVD .
