    LOL funny movie. Very different at the time though and worth a watch. The music from Queen is spectacular lol I'm amazed they did the score for this... I want the back story on that. Watch it once for kicks.

    "Flash Gordon" One Line Review! A-!

    Despite the "willing to die for you as soon as we meet" love story and a slightly slow start, Flash Gordon is deliciously bad with its effects and dialogue - But it captures a Comic feel with great imagination, colors, and over the top everything - Still fun to watch - Not to mention the rocking Queen soundtrack! A-! (P. S. Voltan is my hero.)

    The best movie ever. You don't even understand how good it is. Too good. Watch it now and buy 10000000000000000000000000 copies of it, then buy 100000 more.

    "Flash Gordon" is played for laughs, and wisely so. It is no more sophisticated than the comic strip it's based on, and that takes the curse off of material that was old before it was born. Is all of this ridiculous? Of course. Is it fun? Yeah, sort of, it is.

    Better than it might have been, given the limitations of this kind of brand-name filmmaking. Hodges doesn't shirk his duties, and though the film lapses too often into easy facetiousness, much of it feels surprisingly substantial. The action moves smoothly and logically, finding a rhythm that engages your attention despite the patent lack of inspiration and genuine commitment.

    This campy extravaganza has it all - heroes, villains, beautiful women and high stakes. Laughably bad and fantastically good all at once, this is a guilty pleasure that everyone can enjoy.
