It always impresses me to see how good an HD version of an old movie can be. While the image isn't as clear as a brand new digital movie that's been made that way, what we get here is a significant gain in image quality as well a better sound it seems. That being said, this release could have brought together a significant amount of bonus material, the original cover or whatever any Conan fan might want but this, instead, is more of a "casual" Blu-ray release and what you get is the classic fantasy movie with a plenty of languages/subtitles.
The movie itself is one of the best fantasy movies ever made and also one of Arnold's best (even if he only says maybe a hundred words in the whole movie). If you already are a Conan (movie) fan, you really should add this to your collection as it fares much better on the new HDTV as the DVD version does and if you're just curious, you should know that this is very inexpensive for an high definition classic.
