With gaudy sets and costumes by Fellini's favourite designer, Danilo Donati, and ultra-camp performances throughout, this is a film that positively revels in its cheesiness. 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

The expensive new version of Flash Gordon is a lot more gaudy, and just as dumb, as the original series starring Buster Crabbe. Full Review

Product Description:

New York football star Flash Gordon vaults into outer space to battle the nefarious Ming, supreme ruler of the planet Mongo. Ming intends to conquer planet earth, and hunky Flash teams up with several of his daring female admirers, as well as the brilliant Dr. Zarkov, in an effort to thwart the monomaniacal evil-doer. Features a fun score by rock group Queen.

Production Notes:

  • Additional credits include: John Osborne (as an Arborian Priest); Richard O'Brien (as Fico); John Hallam (as Luro); Philip Stone (as Zogi, The High Priest); Denis Postle (Director of the Zarkov brain-drain sequence)
  • Color by Technicolor; filmed in the Todd-AO 35 widescreen process.
  • Estimated budget: $20,000,000 - $35,000,000
  • Based on characters created by Alex Raymond for his long-running King Features comic strip.
  • Previous Flash Gordon films include: "Spaceship to the Unknown" (1936); "The Deadly Ray from Mars" (1938; aka "Flash Gordon: Mars Attacks the World"); and "Purple Death from Outer Space" (1940). All three of these features were edited versions of longer serials released by Universal the same year. The serials are, respectively, "Flash Gordon" (1936), "Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars" (1938), and "Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe" (1940). Former Olympic swimmer Buster Crabbe played Flash Gordon in all of these early incarnations. In 1974 a soft-core parody of the Gordon films was released, entitled "Flesh Gordon". And Filmation Studios produced an animated version, "Flash Gordon to Save the Earth", in 1990.
