Missed this at the cinema , first time round but the idea captured my imagination enough to buy it cold ! Having seen the trailer, I had a rough idea what the plot line was about , I am a big fan of the emerging films using the digital backdrop. Well i wasn't disappointed, being a fan of the original Flash Gordons (bought 2 box sets here on Play) , this movie turned out to be a real treat. So long as you switch off your brain and accept that the acting very much in the idea of an old Flash tv show , then enjoy the action. The cast suit the script, the look of the movie is great with a Sepia tone effect adding to the 1941 style shots. The plot is is a living comic book and the effects are pretty cool. Overall I would highly recommend this movie , but only if you don't take it seriously. By the way , the rumour has it that the people behind the gritty new Battlestar Galactica tv show are to start on a equally gritty Flash Gordon series in the very near future :) enjoy the show !
