Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's a goofy MST-3K quality about Conan the Destroyer that aims for family friendly but tries to be sexy as well, something we saw a lot of in the 80s."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"There are still enjoyable elements in it, but it feels as different from its predecessor as a Roger Moore Bond does compared to a Sean Connery."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"Has some serious value as camp, but it's a lot less brawny than the original."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Conan the Destroyer is a rather silly follow-up, with less raw emotion, less excitement and far too many dumb sidekicks."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Pretty bad, but not as bad as people say it is."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
‑ Carlo Cavagna,
"What happens when you take everything that makes Conan the Barbarian memorable, and strip it down to a light-hearted, PG-rated version of itself... stupid and boring and generally unintelligible."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"More jokey and less intense than the original."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
