Mattel did not want He-Man and the other heroes killing people, since they never did so in the cartoon, but Gary Goddard felt that a "no killing rule" would not work on film, especially when compared to the action fare of the day. The compromise was to use robot storm troopers, so that they could be killed off in place of the flesh and blood villains. See more »
Billy Barty's real mouth (in black makeup) is visible through Gwildor's mouth. It is most obvious during the scene when they're trying to re-power the key in the street park. See more »
At the center of the universe, at the border between the light and the dark stands Castle Greyskull. For countless ages, the Sorceress of Greyskull has kept this universe in harmony. But the armies of darkness do not rest, and the capture of Greyskull is ever most in their minds. For with those that control Greyskull, will come the Power... The power to be supreme... the power to be almighty... the power to be... Masters of the Universe!

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 »
Masters Of The Universe is a brilliant movie. It may not be exactly the same as the animated TV series, but that does not matter. The storyline was quite good too. I think that right now would be the perfect time to make a sequel. If they did, they would obviously get people who saw The Phantom Menace earlier this year going to see it. They could even have a computer generated Orko and Battle Cat. I give this film a 10/10.
