Episode 16: Masters of the Universe

In this episode, we take a look at Masters of the Universe, a film meant to cash in on the successful toy line and kids cartoon of the same name.  With Cannon Films rapidly running out of resources, the film suffered from a lack of plot, a waste of talent and only slightly resembled the rich source material it was derived from. It’s not completely without merit – Frank Langella and Meg Foster do justice to Skeletor and Evil-Lyn, Dolph Lundgren is a dead ringer for the actual He-Man and the cast genuinely seems to be having a good time.  That being said – this film definitely does NOT have the power.
