When He-Man hangs upside down while pursued by Skeletor's Air Centurion, his hair does not hang down. However, since he's "hanging from" an anti-gravity platform, on which he's standing, from his point of view he's standing the right side up. If his hair would fall down (the real down), then his entire body would follow, but that does not happen. Apparently, that's how those anti-gravity platforms work. See more »

Some people say it was the Star Wars of the 80's and some people say it was completely horrible. I wouldn't quite agree with either statement. Though not as good as Star Wars, it really isn't that bad of a movie. Especially if you remember growing up watching He-man on TV and pretending that you could hold a magic sword above your head and become all powerful. Yes, some of the lines are cheap and the acting is stilted and questionable at times, but it is still a fun movie. If you forget what I've just mentioned and just sit back and enjoy the fantasy and the adventure, and you will enjoy the movie. Some memorable scenes are the battles in the junk yard, the flying hover craft fight and the final fight between He-man and Skelator. If you're a fan of He-man or any action movie made in the late 80's, I would recommend that you rent this movie.
