The heroic warrior He-Man battles against lord Skeletor and his armies of darkness for control of Castle Grayskull.
Risibly silly live action version of a TV cartoon series is fun to watch how bad it is.
Halliwell (no star): "Live action version of the TV cartoons of the toys of the comic strip. Pretty weak stuff, even for five-year-olds."
Maltin**: "Elaborate comic book nonsense (which has had another life in kiddie animation) is dumb but inoffensive."
Michael Weldon/Psychotronic: "Conan meets Star Wars. This whole movie is based on a line of Mattel toys. Despite that fact, it's not bad as mindless, PG-rated entertainment...A big laser battle in a used-record store is my favorite scene."
