Rating: 3/5 -- Sci-fi comic-strip movie is too violent for younger kids. 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

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

New York football star Flash Gordon vaults into outer space to battle the nefarious Ming, supreme ruler of the planet Mongo.

  • 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.
