Product Description

Amazon.ca

If you're into sword-and-sorcery tales, look no further than this critically underrated big-screen fantasy based on the fiction of Conan the Barbarian creator Robert E. Howard. It was a troubled production and the outcome is far different from the more serious and intelligent epic that screenwriter Charles Pogue had originally conceived. Still, this is a giddy, energetic throwback to the Ray Harryhausen movie fantasies of the 1950s and '60s, and it's a perfect vehicle for Kevin Sorbo, the hunky star of TV's Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Sorbo brings an appropriate combination of depth and physical agility to the role of Kull (son of Conan), but he and director John Nicolella know better than to take this stuff too seriously. The movie's humor is nicely integrated into the dialogue without resorting to lame punch lines, and Tia Carrere is enjoyably campy as the evil goddess who lures Kull from his favorite concubine (Karina Lombard) as she plots to overthrow the kingdom of Valusia. Playwright Harvey Fierstein also provides comic relief in a scene-stealing role, and with an abundance of black magic, stunning Slovakian locations, and grand battles of good versus evil, this heroic adventure is more entertaining than you might expect. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't take it too seriously Sept. 28 2004
Format:DVD
The story of Kull the Conqueror is quite stereotypical among fantasy stories: the hero saving the country from evil, etc. Still, that does not make the movie a bad one; on the contrary it is a surprisingly entertaining movie that never takes itself too seriously. I'm not putting Kevin Sorbo up there as one of the greatest actors of all time, but he fits in the role of Kull and does what is expected of him: he plays a hero. And in my opinion, he does a good job of that. Kull the Conqueror won't appeal to everyone, obviously, but as long as you don't take it too seriously, there is no reason not to enjoy watching.

3.0 out of 5 stars The difference being..... July 6 2004
Format:DVD
I didn't really have a problem with this movie. The whole thing was based on a character from Robert E. Howard novels (who technically is an ancestor to Conan of Cimmeria), had one of the same producers involved with the Conan movies, and the ORIGINAL soundtrack being hard and thunderous, enough to do Conan proud. I had no problem with this film, save for one thing....
Kevin Sorbo.
Yes, Mr. Pretty boy Hercules himself is placed into the role of Kull of Atlantis, ancestor to Conan the Barbarian, actually trying to play himself off as a barbarian. Would've been more believable to me had they gone with Lou Ferrigno, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or, dare I say, perhaps even Triple H. Apart from that one minute detail, the movie was terrific.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent enough movie despite what people say June 5 2004
Format:DVD
Kull's a pretty decent film despite what people say. It may be dumb but it's dumb fun and it's worth the price. It's a really enjoyable for a cheesy fantasy/barbarian action flick. I would take Kull over Conan any day. I don't know why so many people love Conan anyway. Kull is dumb fun but the Conan movies are just dumb.

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaining while not much else Feb. 16 2004
Format:DVD
I have seen Kevin Sorbo in Hercules and like Hercules he does good with the role that has been given to him. Though Kull is the son of Conan there is surprisingly no reference to that in the movie. So do you need to see the Conan movies before watching this? Absolutely not. In fact, I think Kull the Conqueror is better than the Conan movies. Though not superb, this movie does manage to entertain. Tia Carrere does good playing the evil and seductive ressurected queen who Kull has to defeat in order to save the kingdom he wants to rule. If you like movies based on fantasy/mythology, check this one out. Though the music and sense of humor are a bit far fetched considering the time of which Kull the Conqueror takes place, this still makes for a decent flick.

2.0 out of 5 stars Something's Missing Oct. 28 2003
Format:DVD
"Kull the Conqueror" missed the mark by a mile. Robert E. Howard's Kull was a dark, brooding barbarian warrior from Atlantis who became a king. Kevin Sorbo is not exactly what I had in mind. But in a way, he's the movie's only saving grace. He is charming (which the original certainly was not) and funny. But it is the modern aspects of the movie that hurts it's atmosphere. The jokes are way too 20th centery and the heavy metel sound track is also too modern. The tone of the whole movie is too light to really do Howard's creation justice. Oh, and by the way, Kull is an ancient fore-father of Conan, not Conan's son.

Kevin Sorbo plays "Kull", a barbarian. He tries to join another team but must prove himself worthy in a sword fight, in the water with swords-aflame, blindfolded. He loses. Later, he has a sword fight with a king. He stabs the king. The birthrights want the crown, but just before the king dies, he gives the crown to Kull. Now Kull is the king. He sends the slaves free and those born inside the palace are given a wage. Outside, Kull sees a man by the name of Ascalante (played by rap artist Litefoot, also known as G. Paul Davis. You may recall Litefoot in the film, The Indian in the Cupboard [1995]) is being whipped for worshipping his God at the eternal flame. Kull orders him free. Ascalante then becomes Kull's partner. Harvey Fierstein adds comic relief in his role. This film was meant to be a third "Conan" film, Conan the Conqueror, but when Arnold Schwarzenegger refused to reprise the Conan role, the script was rewritten as "Kull" for Kevin Sorbo. My only interest in seeing this film is the casting of Litefoot/G. Paul Davis.

1.0 out of 5 stars Conan probably denies he's related to this one May 20 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I saw this movie in the theater, and the kindest thing I can say is that it's not as bad as such classics as "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" or "A Polish Vampire in Burbank". However, it's not bad enough to surive in that collection of classic klinkers. When I saw it in the theater, the best line was actually delivered by a theater patron who, seeing Kull engaged in combat with a burley foe, suggested that Kull, "Bite his ear!", an appropriate allusion to current events at the time. Save your money. Don't encourage production of this DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Kull" Smashes Skulls Oct. 23 2002
By Timotee
Format:DVD
Comedy. One word that sums up this sword 'n sorcery movie. "Kull the Conqueror" stars Kevin Sorbo as the warrior who becomes a king and destroys an evil goddess (Tia Carrere). I liked the part where Akavasha put a steaming finger on a servant's forehead and then he fell out a castle window. Bursting flames! People should ride on top of camels, not under them. A stinky surprise may await them! A funny, overweight man runs around with flailing arms and he wears make-up. Funny little man. Many comical moments highlight this underrated movie. Even wannabe hard rock music plays during battle scenes. Yes. Watch the rotten kiss at the end which makes Kull spit a massive loogie! Gigantic.
