In between brittle skies and other galactic junk, the adults are likely to doze off. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- ...a terminally underwhelming sci-fi epic that may keep small children amused, admittedly, but will leave adults bored to tears. Full Review
Reel Film Reviews
Aug 22, 2012
Though the special effects are on the cheesy side and the direction little more than workmanlike, Flash Gordon has the good, giddy grace never to take itself seriously. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- This is like a drug-induced sexy fever dream of what the 80s had turned into for much of science fiction cinema. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

PATHETIC EARTHLINGS... WHO CAN SAVE YOU NOW? Super producer Dino De Laurentiis (Dune, Barbarella) brought Alex Raymond's beloved cartoon strip and the long running movie serial to the big screen with celebrated director Mike Hodges (Get Carter, Black Rainbow) at the helm, in a delirious space opera, where Flash is King of the Impossible! Merciless Emperor Ming (Max von Sydow) decides to wreak havoc on Earth in a moment of cruel boredom. Boarding a rocket as a means of escape, star quarterback Flash Gordon (Sam J. Jones), Dale Arden (Melody Anderson) and Dr. Hans Zarkov (Topol) find themselves on Mongo. Taken prisoner Flash must save Dale from becoming Ming's concubine, avoid the amorous intentions of Ming's wicked daughter Aura (Ornella Muti) and unite the warring Kingdoms of Mongo. With endlessly repeatable dialogue, inimitable camp style, the sonic stylings of Queen and a delightful band of characters and actors playing them it's no wonder Flash Gordon has become one of the most beloved sci-fi spectacles of its era with directors such as Edgar Wright, Taika Waititi and Seth MacFarlane paying tribute to it in their work.
