Description: The New Beverly Cinema presents a 25th-anniversary screening of the live-action film version of the television cartoon series. Dolph Lundgren is a wood hero, but Frank Langella is amusing as the villain Skeletor. The film version contrives to set a big chunk of the action on contemporary Earth instead of sticking to the setting of the series; sadly, despite the effort to improve upon the original, MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE is less sophisticated than its source material.
