Rating: 3/5 -- The prettiest of the Flash Gordon serials, even though like most Universal chapterplays, it is filled with stock footage and choppy editing.

Rating: 6/10 -- Of course, it's corny and juvenile but that's the point.

Rating: 4/5 -- Third and final (and actually made in 1940) Flash Gordon serial. Still fun.

Rating: 3/4 -- The serial's production values compensate for the usual Universal cheapness of stock footage and newsreel sequences. Full Review

Though played out against some lavish backdrops, 'Universe' is easily the weakest of the Flash serials. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Flash Gordon (forever personified by Buster Crabbe), Dr. Zarkov and Dale Arden return in the third and final adventure of this immortal science fiction series. Flash must voyage to the planet Mongo, to search for the origin of The Purple Death, a fatal disease that has been wreaking havoc on Earth. Emperor Ming the Merciless is the culprit who, with his villainous army, strikes at Flash with death-dealing futuristic weaponry including atomic ray guns, guided missiles and horrifying explosive mechanical men. Flash Gordon's action and special effects were considered quite remarkable for it's time and set the standard for serials to come.

Product Description:

The second 4 episodes of the classic movie serial starring Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon. Flash joins forces with Dale Arden and Dr. Hans Zarkoff to do battle the evil Ming the Merciless. Episodes 5-8: "The Palace Of Terror," "Flaming Death," "The Land Of The Death," and "The Fiery Abyss."
