Flash Gordon Reviews

Film4

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.

This is like a drug-induced sexy fever dream of what the 80s had turned into for much of science fiction cinema.

With gaudy sets and costumes by Fellini's favourite designer, Danilo Donati, and ultra-camp performances throughout, this is a film that positively revels in its cheesiness.

Sci-fi comic-strip movie is too violent for younger kids.

I'm guessing nine out of ten people would rather watch the bearded, barrel-shaped Blessed--strapped to giant wings--bellow, 'Impetuous boy! Oh well, who wants to live forever? Diiiive!' than watch Olivier deliver 'To be or not to be...' [Blu-ray]

Taken solely as a pop wedge of cheese, it's beautifully realized. As for the empty-headed dialogue and the puerile plot, isn't it obvious those are both part of the point?

The film literally explodes with a festival of colors and opulent costume design. It lends the movie a majestic spilled-cocaine imprint that's unmistakable and urges the film into distinctive areas of presentation George Lucas could never follow

Glossy sci-fi fun, although ultimately pretty empty.

The narrative is a little plodding, but adult punters will soon slip back into areverie for the lost visions of Saturday morning cinema.

Laughably bad and fantastically good all at once, this is a guilty pleasure that everyone can enjoy.

Quite possibly the greatest movie ever made, and I thoroughly distrust anyone who suggests otherwise.
