Meg Foster said that she based her character on Shakespeare's Lady Macbeth. In the beginning of the film, she is a pantomime villainess but obviously deeply in love with Skeletor. As the storyline progresses, she gradually comes to realise that he does not truly care for her. In the end, she abandons him to his fate, her withdrawal of her forces leads to his eventual defeat. In Foster's opinion, the character progresses from evildoer to scorned woman to tragic heroine. 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 »
I can't believe how many positive comments there are for this movie!! This movie may have single-handedly ruined my childhood. Okay, exaggeration, but come on, the plot, script, and acting are nowhere near the level of a decent, "real" movie. It makes "Batman and Robin" look good!!
The comparison to "Beastmaster 2" in the sarcastic comment below is accurate. It's just as bad in terms of plot/acting/script, and it actually makes the same mistake: setting most of the action on Earth rather than in the fantasy atmosphere of the original. By this one action, they take everything that made the cartoon exciting to kids and flush it down the toilet.
A real stinker!!
