BY THE POWER OF GRAYSKULL. In the early 1980s He-Man arrived on the scene and hit the world with a punch as powerful as the character himself. Designed in the wake of Conan the barbarian and under the shadow of Star Wars, He-Man's surprising popularity spawned a multi billion dollar empire that included toys, comic books, cartoons, live-action movies and a literal sister spinoff show - She-Ra - and continues to appeal to a ravenous fan-base today. Watch as artists, creators and collaborators dig deep, tell tales and share the surprising developments of an unlikely, unparalleled pop culture success in this Definitive History of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

RUINED by the soundtrack. NONSTOP DRUM BEATS
7 September 2018 | by tvowlesSee all my reviews

There is a consistent, non-stop combination of buzzing and bass as the background audio for this documentary. It overwhelms the voices and in the few moments where the bass stops, the documentary appears to actually be watchable.

After 15 minutes, I had to turn it off due to the horrendous soundtrack.
