“Dolph Lundgren’s He-Man is an impressive physical specimen, the ultimate warrior epitomizing all that is good and defending the honor of inhabitants of the planet Eternia. On the dark side is the hideously made up Frank Langella, as Skeletor. He has captured the Sorceress of Greyskull Castle (Christina Pickles), locking her in a tubular energy field and absorbing her power, which evidently comes from Eternia’s moonbeams.

“Turns out the battle to control the future of universal power takes place at a used music store in a small town in California. He-Man and his allies are searching for a cosmic key that will unlock the Sorceress from her nasty gravity field. Key is discovered by Julie Winston (Courteney Cox, she of Bruce Springsteen’s Dancing in the Dark video fame) and her musician boyfriend, Kevin (Robert Duncan McNeil).” – Variety
