Now, I have read the original script for the movie. Much better than what actually made it to screen. The only fault of the movie is too much Earth. People want to see it on Eternia. But, the movie is still cool, with great effects and a nice score by Bill Conti.
The true highlight of the movie is Frank Langella as Skeletor. He was made to play the role. He is very scarey and at most very evil in the movie.
Also, Friends fans of Courtney Cox will love the movie too, she is in it as Earth girl Julie who finds the Cosmic Key and aids the Eternians on Earth.
I give the movie 5 stars because that is what it should get. I am a huge He-Man and She-Ra fan and this movie is part of He-Man's history.
By the power of grayskull.... YOU have the power!
Dolph Lundgren looks the part of He-Man and he swings a mean sword, but it's obvious that his dialogue was kept to a bare minimum. Still, the other characters pick up the slack, and Frank Langella is marvelous as Skeletor - as in many of the animated shows, he's the one who drives the action. The opening scene where Skeletor marches triumphantly into Castle Greyskull (which is rendered very authentically) sends a genuine chill down your spine, and the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor is worth the wait. One touch I really appreciated was the theme of music as the key to the universe. The film's music score is top-notch and paces the storyline very well. Kudos also to Meg Foster (is that right? you'll know her when you see her) who gives Evil-Lynne some real depth and a truly sharp edge not seen in the series. The entire cast was wonderful; it's a shame they could not put together a sequel using the same people. It's not quite Star Wars, but you'll enjoy this fun adventure film for many years to come.
