A refreshing change from the bland films of today
on 12 January 2011
This film is based on the original He Man cartoon and as cheesy as it is, it feels like you're part of an adventurous comic book story. What is refreshing is the lack of CGI and complete seriousness modern films now have. I saw this film as a child and it always makes me feel nostalgic. The acting in this film isn't brilliant apart from Frank Langella as Skeletor who in my opinion does a geat job, and I guess I can't really fault Courtney Cox, Robert McNeil, or James Tolkan because if it were to really happen chances are that's how a suspicious cop, and 2 confused teenagers would probably act. Even so it's just meant to be a fun action film and the acting really doesn't ruin the film. If you have never seen the cartoon series of He Man it doesn't really matter as you'll still understand the plot and story anyway.
So if you're bored of looking at CGI and bland films like Terminator 4, and you're looking for a fun retro fantasy/action film give this a go.
