An 80's B movie based on a cartoon that was a rip-off of Conan. Back in the 90's when I first watched it, I thought it wasn't that bad. It's just like drinking a cheese milkshake.

Lame attempt to cash in one something popular with the kids - unlike Transformers, special effects couldn't save the day here. I was a big collector of He-Man back in the day, but even I never liked this movie.

Another terrible flick based off of a mediocre cartoon. Transporting the mythical like characters to a then present day America and adding in all of these non He-Man human characters was a big mistake. The movie was already doomed beforehand, but that just made it worse.

Its this a great movie? No, is this a fun movie? Yes. Dolph Lundgren and Frank Langela really make the movie. It helps to watch with a sense of humor so you can enjoy all the B movie glory.

If you grew up in the 80s, you have to see it!

We all like to see comics and cartoons to be as modern and realistic when shown on the big screen. Masters of the Universe does just that, giving us a practical and fresh version of the iconic hero.

After the cosmic key, a device that can open portals to other dimensions, finds itself on earth along with He-man, Man-At-Arms and Teela. A race to locate it begins. The key is found by two teenagers who are initially mesmerized by its advanced technology but then realize that their lives are now in danger as Skeletor along with his villainous clan make their way to earth after tracking down the keys location. The battle of Eternia comes to earth, with He-Man having to protect his friends, the teenagers and the Sorceress, who has been taken hostage by Skeletor.

Considering that this mo...

Where the heck is Mechaneck?

Masters of the Universe for the most part still holds up as a pretty good fantasy/adventure flick. The cast was pretty solid. Dolph Lundgren was a perfect fit for Eternia's greatest warrior, He-Man. He was joined by MOTU staples Man-At-Arms & Teela. A bumbling dwarf by the name of Gwildor was created for this film. He was a pretty good replacement for Orco. A very cute post "dancing in the dark" Courteney Cox also stars.
On the bad side you have an awesome performance by Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon) as Skeletor. He was joined by a great looking Evil-Lyn & Beastman. There were three kick-ass new villians. Saurod, Blade and Karg showed up to add a bit more danger for our heroes.
Also there was a plot point about a thing called the Cosmic Key. To me it looked like a futuristic keytar!!
