Dolph Lundgren went on record in a French magazine interview by saying that working on the "Masters of the Universe" movie was "a nightmare" for him. Lundgren said it was a five month filming schedule, two of which were done during night time, and he was proposed by the crew in doing a sequel while filming Red Scorpion (1988), but he turned down the offer. Ironically, in an interview with the IO9 website while he was promoting The Expendables (2010), Dolph Lundgren said he would return to appear in a new "Masters of the Universe" movie, as either a cameo or even reprise the role of He-Man.

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 »

After the closing credits have ended, Skeletor's head, sans cowl, pops up from the waters of the pit he was thrown in, and says "I'll be back!". See more »
If you're looking for a film to sit back and take in on a lazy Saturday afternoon, look no further. "Masters of the Universe" is one of the best examples of this type of film. There is no deep thinking, you just sit back and watch. I really enjoyed watching this, it's the kind of movie you can get wrapped up in, just like "The Ice Pirates". All in all a worthwhile view.
