Masters of the Universe Reviews

If not for the superb villainy of Frank Langella, who plays the evil Skeletor, Masters of the Universe would be as barren as an asteroid.

Everyone knows how the battles will turn out. It`s what`s between them that raises Masters Of The Universe ever so slightly above the mediocre.

With Masters of the Universe -- the latest numbskull entertainment from the creators of Castle Greyskull -- He-Man makes the transition from animation to live action. Taking a live actor along for the ride might have helped.

A misfiring, underdone epic that takes its inspiration not from life or literature, but from a toy line and the cartoon series it inspired.

It is exceedingly difficult to make convincing live-action versions of cult cartoon strips, and this big-screen version of the momentarily popular TV series is one of the least successful attempts.

If nothing else, we can probably thank Lundgren for ensuring that there will be no more Rambo movies in the near future because he has obviously depleted the world supply of body grease.

It is by no means a masterpiece, but it still possesses some keen schlock value for fans of eighties cinema.

The first film to be based on a line of toys, this might not be the last, but it'd take something awful to replace it as the worst.

There are some decent special effects, but overall it's about what you'd expect from a movie inspired by a line of toys.

There are lots of flashes and bangs, but the effects are neither special nor camp enough to be more than vaguely amusing.

Their weapons make a Fourth of July sparkler show, but they almost never hit anybody.

Halfway through this live action version of the popular early 1980s kiddies TV show, I wondered what I had done wrong to deserve all this pain and suffering.

I'm not saying He-Man deserved all that brilliant of a movie ... but this thing's a freaking disaster.

Little kids at play have come up with craftier plots, better characterization and conceivably more spectacular effects -- provided their mothers let them play with matches.
