Critic Reviews for Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe
The serial's production values compensate for the usual Universal cheapness of stock footage and newsreel sequences.
Third and final (and actually made in 1940) Flash Gordon serial. Still fun.
Though played out against some lavish backdrops, 'Universe' is easily the weakest of the Flash serials.
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.

Audience Reviews for Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe
The last of the Flash Gordon serials are definitely the worst of the three, but that doesn't mean its not fun. Sadly a lot of the cast didn't return for this one. The two most important, the hero and the villain, as well as Dr. Zarkov, do return, but I like to see more supporting characters return, and too many are replaced on this one. It is still a solid end to the whole Flash Gordon thing, but it just doesn't have the same level of quality the first, and even second , serials had.
I saw this a long time ago, I should watch it again.
A serial of the great Flash Gordon. He is sent to find a cure for a plague caused by an evil spaceman dropping "death dust" from his spaceships on earth (chemtrails, anyone?). If you know the comic or any of the subsequent films/series you know this is cheesy as hell - cardboard sets and cardboard acting. This may in fact be the best of all the Flash Gordon adaptations.
