"I'm not your enemy, Ming is! And you know it yourself. Ming is the enemy of every creature of Mongo! Let's all team up and fight him."

Let's get this straight right from the beginning: Flash Gordon is awesome. Rich in '80s campiness, it's a cheesy blockbuster extravaganza full of hammy acting, side-splitting special effects, glorious non-sequiturs, fantastic music and some of the m... read more

Flash Gordon, quarterback New York Jets, becomes intergalactic savior all to the tune of Queen's classic soundtrack. All I have to say is "Flash...Aaaaa...Savior of the universe!" Does it really get any better than that?
View all Flash Gordon (1980) reviews
Description: When the totalitarian planet of Mongo decides on a whim to obliterate Earth, it's up to the lunk-headed quarterback Flash Gordon and his oddball companions to make the universe safe for democracy. Based on the classic (and infinitely more reputable) comic strip and its '30s screen serialization, this cotton-candy-colored trash classic deserves immortality for Queen's unforgettably pulsating soundtrack alone. The legendary Max von Sydow appears to be having a blast as the evil Ming the Merciless, while Ornella Muti, as his daughter, is the living embodiment of what attracts adolescent boys to comics in the first place.

"First viewing - Aug. 18th This was so cheesy and dull I fought to stay awake through it. Once or twice I lost the battle to stay conscious. And yeah, I knew it'd be somewhat cheesy, but while I tried to get into it I just couldn't. I should've gone on ignoring its existence, and I regret that I didn't."

Movie Reviews (51-100) (50 movies items)

" A fun comic book serial movie that is full of "So bad it's good" scenes. Actually it looks just like the old serials from the 1930s but with color. The gorgeous Ornella Muti looks fantastic in this movie and the film is full of colorful costumes and sets. A great addictive and annoying soundtrack by Queen where they basically only sing one word ("FLASH"!) add to the fun. "
