Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The expensive new version of Flash Gordon is a lot more gaudy, and just as dumb, as the original series starring Buster Crabbe. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 14, 2010

Fresh: Is it fun? Yeah, sort of, it is. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: A respectable time-waster. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: There's plenty of colourful fun and an awful lot of men in tights. Don't listen to its pofaced detractors -- for sheer cinema fun, Flash Gordon can't be beaten. – Film4, Apr 12, 2013

This movie was one I would watch when I was younger. Its plot is ok and the actors are a little over the top. Even with the subpar graphics and special effects for some reason I can watch this movie over and over again. I guess thats why it is a "cult" classic.

My number 1 favorite guikty pleasure

With cheesy dialogue and sets, overacting by all the principal actors, the impossibly beautiful Melody Anderson and a rocking soundtrack by Queen this movie is by its very essence the definition of a guilty pleasure. It is easily one of my favorite movies - EVER!

epically classic

queen soundtrack AAA+ over the flash gordon classic a must own
