Conan the Barbarian (2011) Poster

Ron Perlman: Corin



  • Corin : What is most important when making a sword, fire or ice?

    Young Conan : Fire.

    [Corin looks at Young Conan with some disbelief] 

    Young Conan : [pause]  ... Ice?

    Corin : Are you sure?

    [pause; then Corin strikes the anvil with a newly-forged sword which breaks] 

    Corin : Fire... and ice. That is the mystery of steel.

  • Corin : When a Cimmerian feels thirst, it is a thirst for blood. When he feels cold, it is the cold edge of steel. For the courage of a Cimmerian is tempered: he neither fears death... nor rushes foolishly to meet it. To be a Cimmerian warrior, you must have both cunning and balance as well as speed and strength.

  • Corin : [Corin has just put an egg in each of the student's mouths, except Young Conan's, in preparation for a test]  The first to circle the hills and return, the egg unbroken, earns the right to fight with the warriors.

    [Sends the students on the way as a Young Conan is looking disappointed] 

    Corin : Oh, by Crom, boy. What are you waiting for?

    [Gives Young Conan an egg as he rushes on his way] 

  • [last lines] 

    Corin : [Conan remembering his father's words]  The sword we make will be yours one day. But before you wield it, you must first understand it.

  • Corin : [as he practices with Conan]  You're still all fire, boy...

    [as Conan charges him] 

    Corin : No! Slow down! Find your footing.

  • Corin : [to Conan]  You're not ready for this sword.
