  • Cinema Crazed

    The story stinks, and the characters are one dimensional, but what little it offers up of He Man and his world is entertaining and dazzling. ( Read More )
  • Washington Post

    It takes a lot of Wesson Oil to make a movie like Masters of the Universe. ( Read More )
  • Radio Times
