I didn't have a problem with Kevin Sorbo in the Role of Kull.
I did. I had a problem with just about everything about this film.
Money and muscle, that's what I want; to be able to do any damned thing I want and get away with it. Money won't do that altogether, because if a man is a weakling, all the money in the world won't enable him to soak an enemy himself; on the other hand, unless he has money he may not be able to get away with it.
--Robert E. Howard to Harold Preece, ca. June 1928--

I didn't have a problem with Kevin Sorbo in the Role of Kull. What I had a problem with is they essentially Took Conan Hour of the Dragon and made it in to Kull story.
Blame that on the de Laurentiis clan. THEY are the ones who made the decision to change Pogue's CONAN adaptation of "Dragon" into a Kull tale (over Pogue's objections). Basically, they OKed Milius turning Conan into a bastardized Kull and then "returned the favor" by turning Kull into a bastardized Conan.

isnt it true too, though ( from what i remember) that the producers wanted to capitalize off the success of hercules at the time , which is why it ended up pg 13? I also thought I remembered reading around the time too that Sorbo didnt want to play Conan as it was a characyer already done, so they changed it to Kull ( I take that one with a major grain of salt but who knows?) I havent seent this movie in years, all I remember at this point is the one line that made me laugh out loud , because it was so poorly written and delivered by Sorbo: " when I get my hands on the bitch demon ( or demon bitch?lol) ,I'll rip out her evil (black?) heart!!!"If there had been more laughs(still not sure if that was played for laughs or if sorbo was being serious...) like that,I couldve enjoyed it the way i did conan the destroyer....
Why not Hugh Jackman in the role of Kull ?
