Critic Reviews for Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe
Third and final (and actually made in 1940) Flash Gordon serial. Still fun.

The prettiest of the Flash Gordon serials, even though like most Universal chapterplays, it is filled with stock footage and choppy editing.
Of course, it's corny and juvenile but that's the point.
