Gary Goddard’s 1987 “Masters of deep space” may not be a great movie. In reality, it might not even be a great film, however it is all type of fun. Swedish star Dolph Lundgren plays He-Man and appears like Thor with his action-figure physique, red cape, and blonde hair. The movie follows He-Man, as he attempts to save his home world of Eternia from the evil schemes of his arch-nemesis Skeletor (Frank Langella), who has actually found a method to open websites to other worlds.
Unlike most of the other films noted here, there isn’t much deliberate comedy in “Masters of deep space.” Gwildor is a comic relief character and there are a few fish-out-of-water jokes, but most of the laughs come from how absurd the motion picture is. These heroic characters that have been amazing kids with epic experiences for many years are all of a sudden walking around streets and stores in the world, instead of battling a war on a legendary world. The sets and props are functional, but far from remarkable. The final battle takes place in a perfectly dark space.
Still, the appeal comes through. This live-action representation of Eternia even rather looks like a lower-budget Sakaar with its hazardous landscape and innovation. In fact, if Taika Waititi weren’t affected by this film in some way, it would be a shock. Despite its shortcomings, it at least feels like everyone included with “Masters of the Universe” is attempting to make something great. Eventually, that energy goes a long method in making this movie so satisfying, and one that could quickly follow a viewing of “Thor: Love and Thunder.”
