If only Ming the Merciless had turned his death ray on the producers...

The expensive new version of Flash Gordon is a lot more gaudy, and just as dumb, as the original series starring Buster Crabbe.

a total bomb; an insult to the original serials; not even good camp.

An irrelevant campy sci-fier.

...a terminally underwhelming sci-fi epic that may keep small children amused, admittedly, but will leave adults bored to tears.

Young kids will probably enjoy this one, but anyone over 10 years old can forget it, as Lorenzo Semple's script pokes more fun at the audience's intelligence than at the story.

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

While it's not the best of the sci-fi genre, you don't have to go to a galaxy far, far away to enjoy every minute of it.

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?

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