3.0 out of 5 stars BLU-RAY REVIEW: A classic, limited by technology Aug. 14 2012
By Derek Draven TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
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.

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 ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and cheesy fantasy film Jan. 7 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is one of the corniest I've ever seen, and yet, one of the most entertaining. It has elements of Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and various other fantasy/adventure films (I'm actually pretty sure some of the same set pieces and costumes were used from Star Wars). The elaborate costumes, cheesy plot line and overdone acting all come together in a surprisingly entertaining film. Plus, there is a twist at the end of the movie that even the most intuitive film-lovers won't see coming!

My nephew is watching He-Man Masters of Univers in cartoon. When I buy the movie, even if it was old it's really good and well done, he was impress to see He-Man in person. Really like to watch it after so many years!

2.0 out of 5 stars Its okay, but a big disappointment.... May 31 2004
Format:DVD
As a huge fan of He-man and She-ra, I was disappointed with this movie. The big problem- the setting! It was a big mistake to go with Earth. Personally, I wanted to see how the people live on Eternia. We could have also seen interesting creatures and learned about a new world. Some might want to claim lack of technology, but there were plenty of special effects films made prior to the computer animation we know today. If Yoda could be brought to life back in the first trilogy from 1981 surely someone could have made a realistic Orko. But back on the subject of MOTU on earth, they could have also made a more interesting storyline if they insisted using Earth. He-man's mother, Queen Marlena, is FROM earth! The movie team obviously had no problem making this a more ADULT oriented film by adding more violence and drama, so they should have gone all the way and made it even more dramatic. It would have been interesting to see had Marlena been with the group how she'd react to being reunited with her old family on Earth. It would have been a nice sub-plot. Another thing I hated was the costumes. He-man with a cape? Yuck. And don't get me started on Teela's outfit. Then there's the introduction of new characters as opposed to using our favorite ones from the cartoon. I'm not sure, but I'm thinking there were leftover toys that Mattel needed to sell so they pushed for the film to use these new guys.
Anyways, as a fan, I'll watch the movie sometimes when its on cable, but it was a disappointment then and its still a disappointment as an adult. The dialogue is cheesy and not in a good 80s way. The storyline lacks imagination, and one other thing to complain about...the laser guns! The people who made this film obviously didn't pay attention to the title--MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE.
