There are lots of flashes and bangs, but the effects are neither special nor camp enough to be more than vaguely amusing. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- There are some decent special effects, but overall it's about what you'd expect from a movie inspired by a line of toys. Full Review

It is by no means a masterpiece, but it still possesses some keen schlock value for fans of eighties cinema. Full Review

If nothing else, we can probably thank Lundgren for ensuring that there will be no more Rambo movies in the near future because he has obviously depleted the world supply of body grease. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- The first film to be based on a line of toys, this might not be the last, but it'd take something awful to replace it as the worst. Full Review

...Lundgren is appealing and certainly imposing....[His] He-Man is an impressive physical specimen...

A misfiring, underdone epic that takes its inspiration not from life or literature, but from a toy line and the cartoon series it inspired. Full Review
