Masters of the Universe

Revealing mistake: The Eternia out-door scenes depicting the conquest of the Castle Grayskull area are actually one long shot subdivided into smaller parts. Look at the captured Eternian soldiers marched to the castle; they cover very little distance between the shots.

Revealing mistake: He-Man captures the hover platform and flies off to retrieve Gwildor's key. When he appears before his friends on the roof-top, the image used for him is much too flat, revealing its artificial nature.

Revealing mistake: When He-Man is being whipped, on the last lash before the scene cuts to show the happenings on Earth, he reacts to the (animated) whip long before it hits him.

Revealing mistake: The first shot of the restaurant where Julie works shows a couple exiting. When Julie exits herself several minutes later, the couple is in the same spot continuing their movement, revealing that it's the very same shot reused.

Revealing mistake: As Evil-lyn sends a signal, one of the troops behind her gets on the transport. As he passes the railing, it and the wall wobble badly, showing a very cheaply made prop.

Continuity mistake: When the microwave explodes, the bucket of chicken disappears right after the explosion. (00:48:50)

Chosen answer: A sequel was not only planned, but money was spent developing sets and costumes. However, Dolph Lundgren did not want to reprise the role, so Laird Hamilton was picked to play He-Man with Albert Pyu set to direct. Canon Films, who produced the first movie, was also planning on producing a Spider-Man movie. However, Canon Films still owed money to Mattel and Marvel for the character rights that they couldn't feasibly pay, so both projects had to be scrapped. Incidentally, not wanting to let money go to waste on sets and costumes, they had Pyu come up with a movie to utilize them, which resulted in Cyborg starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
