Somehow, Dolph Lundgren portrayed He-Man brilliantly! This was an epic classic. And it had a young Courtney Cox!
Masters of the Universe, at least the cartoon and toys, were one of the reasons I am so happy I had a childhood in the 80s... along with GI Joe and Star Wars, they were some of the most defining things of 80s childhood play. And then this came out and we all felt a little cheated that we had a knock-off Orco, but totally excited that we had a movie we could see on the big screen. And we were young enough to not see how low the budget was. But, man, Frank Langella really sold his role didn't he? He brought his A-Game to this and knocked it out of the park. And Chelsea Field deserved better roles, she's never been bad in any of her films, even this low budget fair. But, watching it as an adult... it's a lot more B-Movie than it was when I was a kid, and the nostalgia and, well, Langella, are all that's really carrying it. But it's still fun. It still entertains, and is still all that matters.
