When pro quarterback Flash Gordon is transported (along with his beautiful girlfriend Dale Arden) to the planet Mongo, he discovers a plot by intergalactic madman Ming the Merciless to destroy Earth and take Dale for his own. Now, it’s up to this reluctant hero to unite Ming’s enemies, stop the unthinkable and "save every one of us." One of the greatest camp sci-fi movies ever made (and featuring an inspired soundtrack by Queen), this cult adventure is “a guilty pleasure that everyone can enjoy.” (Empire Magazine.)
Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Campy charm and a knowing sense of humor help to overcome a silly plot involving a spacefaring ex-football player, his adoring bevy of groupies, and a supervillain named Ming the Merciless.
Sci-fi comic-strip movie is too intense for younger kids.
