The Secret of the Sword

"I've got that flying horsey in my sight" He-Man & the Masters of the Universe was a massive hit toy line and a massive hit animated TV series. He-Man ruled the airwaves in the 80s and it would only make sense to not only make a feature length theatrical film but also a new spin-off series with a new character! The film follows Price Adam/He-Man as he embarks on the search for his twin sister.

I want to get this out of the way before anything else: Snake Eyes is not a good film. There are many good to great things about Snake Eyes, but taken on its own merit, Snake Eyes just does do much with what it is given.

The film opens with a "oner" that takes us to everywhere we are going to go to throughout the film and also introduces us to the characters as well. This shot is so impressive that the film can not live up to it. The film settles into a standard thriller arch that we don't really care about.
