I remember seeing this film as a double feature with "The Neverending Story" when my mom recorded it on VHS from an airing on TBS from 1993 when I was very little and my memory of it was very hazy. I do know my cousin is a huge He-Man fan and I eventually rewatched it not that long ago as a grown adult. Needless to say, this adaptation was pretty poor. The special effects were cheesy, the acting w... read more

The world of Eternia in the aftermath of Skeletor's war on Castle Grayskull, which he has won after seizing Grayskull and the surrounding city using a cosmic key developed by the Thenorian locksmith Gwildor. The Sorceress is now Skeletor's prisoner and he begins to drain her life-force as he waits for the moon of Eternia to align with the Great Eye of the Universe that will bestow god-like power upon him.

Movie Reviews (1101-1150) (50 movies items)

" Based upon the cartoon series. "Masters..." has a great mythology and unique characters so the potential is high. Meg Foster as Evil-Lyn with her piercing unique eyes is perfect for a villainness and Dolph Lundgren is not that bad as He-Man, but Frank Langella should have looked like a skeleton instead of having that pathetic make-up that ruin what should have been a wonderful looking villain and Billy Barty is a terrible comic sidekick. The film also looks too much as a TV show especially all "

Interesting film facts (453 movies items)

"Frank Langella went on record in an interview stating that playing Skeletor was one of his favorite roles. His young son was a huge fan and was running around the house shouting "By the power of Grayskull", so he took the role for him. He wrote some of his lines, like: "Tell me about the loneliness of good, He-Man. Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?".
