Angry Robot

Conan the Destroyer

insane wizard

sucks, but it does feature the shittiest wizard in the history of cinema. This fellow, who looks like a street maniac dolled up with a dainty cap and special shiny pointing glove, has his “magic” castle violated easily by Arnie and friends, and then is stabbed five minutes later. He gets two lines, total. And they talked him up for ages as the most fearsome wizard because of his magic program-related activities. That was a refreshing turn for the bizarre in a film that otherwise features too many scenes of walking or horseriding from one dreary locale to another, in what must be considered the wrong way to go about making your film appear ‘epic’.
