While I was reading the other customer reviews of "Masters of the Universe" on this page, I was shocked at how many negative reviews there were. I absolutely love this movie! It is one the most fun movies you could ever see, and has been one of my favorites ever since I was a kid. When I was little, I had all of the toys, and watched the cartoon series religiously. Now I know that the movie doesn't stay true to the cartoon series, but you have to think of it as a seperate entity of a central idea. The makers of this film were trying to appeal to hardcore fans of the series, and also to attract new viewers to the series. In one review by Access Hollywood in the 80's this movie was hailed as "The Star Wars of the 80's" I believe that this movie is as good as Star Wars when you compare them as fantasy films. The special effects are great in this movie, when you consider the time that this movie was made. And they make a stunning transfer to DVD! This movie looks as gorgeous as it did when I first saw it in the theatre as a kid. I also love the acting in this movie. Frank Langella as Skeletor is simply fantastic. He gives a very theatrical quality to the character, and has just the right amount of sinister evil, and operatic intensity that he captures the character perfectly, without going over the top. In my opinion Langella deserved an Oscar nomination for his role, he was brilliant. As far as casting He-Man, the film makers had a quite a task on their hands, because He-Man is the ultimate super hero. Dolph Lundgren was a great choice. He had the ripped, muscular body, but could also do the fight scenes, and act as well. Other great casting was Courtney Cox, now Courtney Cox-Arquette from "Friends" where her character Monica Gellar is my favorite!Read more ›

If you grew up in the 1980s, then you've probably heard of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Filmation brought the character to life in Saturday morning cartoon format, paving the way for an eventual leap to the silver screen. This occurred in 1987, when director Gary Goddard (Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future) took the plunge. It's a mixed bag of a film, fondly remembered for the sense of wonder it managed to evoke, despite its limitations.

The film is loosely based on the Masters of the Universe premise, where the evil villain Skeletor (Frank Langella) has overthrown the forces of Eternia and captured Castle Greyskull, the source of a magnificent universal power. The last pockets of resistance fighters band together, led by He-Man (Dolph Lundgren), a champion of good who possesses exemplary strength and courage. Aided by Man-At-Arms (Jon Cypher), and the beautiful Teela (Chelsea Field), He-Man stumbles upon a group of enemy troops who have captured the diminutive Gwildor (Billy Barty), an eccentric inventor who possesses the Cosmic Key, a device which can open a gateway to anywhere in time and space. Gwildor admits that Skeletor was able to enter Grayskull by stealing the Cosmic Key, but he did not steal the prototype. He uses the Key to open a door directly into Castle Greyskull, and there the warriors make their stand. He-Man and his friends are outmatched, however, and forced to flee into another portal to an unknown region of space. They end up arriving on Earth, circa late 1980s. Skeletor wastes no time sending his warriors through the gate to pursue He-Man and steal the key. Among them is the seductive Evil-Lyn (Meg Foster), a wicked sorceress who plans to ensnare them all in a trap.

At the worst I thought I would be mildly entertained, have a few laughs and would get to marvel at the physical perfection that was Dolph Lundgren in 1987. Little did I know that I was in for a tragic tale of thwarted gay love, Masters of the Universe is Brokeback Mountain in outer space with explosions.
Dolph Lundgren's costume for the entire film consists of a cape, a harness, a bulging-pouched jockstrap and sandals. If that wasn't enough to indicate that he is the object of sexual desire in this film, there is, in the middle of a fight scene, a gloriously gratuitious shot of Lundgren's sweaty chest.
Skeletor wants to take over the universe. Almost as much as he wants - and who can blame him? - He-Man. Repeatedly Langella takes his barely suppressed lust over the top, gawking and drooling, appearing to cum in his codpiece when He-Man is flogged, and insisting that He-Man be brought back alive no matter who else dies. He shouts, "Return with me to Eternia as my slave."
And he is explicit about what that slavery will entail, "I want him kneeling at my feet."
Again, Lundgren is such an extraordinarily handsome specimen, who can blame him?
The climactic battle scene is filled with wonders. It begins as a BDSM flogging scene with Skeletor overseeing, and obviously getting off on, He-Man being on the receiving end of a fluorescent red whip that leaves perfectly arranged striations on Lundgren's muscled back.
Alas there never was a Masters of the Universe II. All the homoerotic subtext and state of the art (for the '80s) special effects could not draw an audience sizable enough to turn a profit.
