MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE
1987, Park Circus/MGM, 106 min, USA, Dir: Gary Goddard

“I have the power!” A battle fought in the stars comes to Earth as the popular Mattel toy line comes to the big screen. After stealing a cosmic key, Skeletor (a perfectly cast Frank Langella) seizes control of the planet Eternia and is on the brink of ultimate power – unless He-Man (played by living action figure Dolph Lundgren) and his allies (including a pre-“Friends” Courteney Cox) can stop him. Elevated by Bill Conti’s epic score, this underrated fantasy courses with pulpy energy - Marvel Comics artist Jack Kirby was reputedly a source of inspiration. With Billy Barty, Meg Foster, Jon Cypher and Chelsea Field.
