Pathetic Earthlings... Who Can Save You Now?

Flash Gordon, an outer space fantasy adventure, is based on the world famous comic strip, which comes to life with action, romance, comedy and music by popular rock group Queen.

When energy waves pull the moon out of orbit, threatening destruction of the Earth, Dr. Hans Zarkov makes a desperate rocket flight with two unwilling passengers - Flash Gordon, quarterback for the NY Jets and the lovely Dale Arden. Their destination is planet Mongo, the source of the strange energy waves. Ruling over Mongo with primeval brutality is Ming the Merciless, who must be destroyed. Only one person can do it. He is Flash Gordon.

This is truly a good refresher of one of my childhood superheros. For those who loved reading the comic books of Flash Gordon and Ming, this is a classic. People of today may not relate to the theme... Read more

A good remake of an oldie. This one has a great sound track by Queen. Take it for what it is and you will enjoy it.
