The characters they're left with are side characters. They're not great characters... they're kind of boring characters, like Rose Tico in the Star Wars movies.

Masters of the Universe Revelation takes the biggest risk a franchise could ever take and gets away with it, thanks to a strong storytelling that updates mythical characters to make them a better fit for the 21st century audience.

By no means is the show flawless, but the intention is strong, and it lands most of what it throws down. Check this out with an open mind and a love for your childhood, if you haven't already.

Though it's meant to be a continuation of the original series, you can absolutely jump into Revelation with only a rudimentary understanding of who everyone is, or none at all.
July 29, 2021
This exciting and action packed reboot gives a whole new perspective on the Guardians of Grayskull and the world of Eternia.

Kevin Smith's rebooted adventure series walks a tricksy line between the nostalgic and the new and, for the most part, pulls it off.

In creating a successful revival, showrunner Kevin Smith and his writing team go the extra distance to set the stage with something recognizable and familiar.

Revelation will be an extremely divisive show, and while it eventually had its flaws, imagination was not one of them. Or perhaps, that is the point of any toy-based franchise, that every new day gives you a different way to play and end the story.
July 27, 2021
The story that Kevin Smith has set up in the first two episodes is definitely an intriguing one.

Look, it's not an animated Game of Thrones, but it's something far more interesting, nuanced and less shallow, akin to Netflix's Dark Crystal series or Shadow and Bone.
July 26, 2021
Revelation pulls off the trifecta of honoring its source material, improving on it where there's opportunity to do so, and living up to its title with a fascinating, fresh spin on the franchise.
July 24, 2021
It probably won't shatter expectations, but as the first part of an intended finale for one of pop culture's most cherished icons, Revelation proves itself worthy of Castle Grayskull and its fabulous power.
July 23, 2021
The new Netflix series honors its predecessor in ways notable and sly, while also humanizing its larger-than-life heroes and villains. Kids of the '80s, rejoice.
July 23, 2021
Indeed, except perhaps for those heavily steeped in "Masters" lore, the action grinds along telling a serialized story that's billed a "Part I."
July 23, 2021
Smith gives viewers all the information they need to form connections and understand relationships. The wink-y moments are obvious, but in a way that's likely to inspire a dive down the wiki rabbit hole, rather than confusion.
July 23, 2021
Kevin Smith and company effectively build a bridge between the animated series from the 80s, which I adored growing up, and this modern continuation that's superior in every way. [Full review in Spanish]

Smith's version was engaging and hardly felt predictable, which is good enough to warrant anticipating the next batch of episodes.

Masters of the Universe: Revelation is simple, fun and efficiently told. Its action is slightly more violent than that of its predecessor, though it's never unpleasant, so younger viewers will have a blast.

So, if this weekend you find yourself, a grown-arse adult... grinning like an idiot as Prince Adam holds aloft his magic sword... well, you're not alone.
July 22, 2021
It is a joy watching a show set in a fantasy genre that completely circumvents your expectation and takes you on a journey you didn't expect.
