Movie Reviews

The best sci-fi serial that ever was
Loring Ivanick | Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo Japan | 02/25/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All three Flash Gordon serials with all the episodes intact. Well-transferred to DVD. Buster Crabbe is handsome, even with the bleached blond hair, earnest, strong and unflappable: all you'd expect in a comic strip hero. To be honest, all the actors seem to take their work seriously, even if there was an occasional lapse of continuity in the story. No serial villain comes up to the level of Charles Middleton as Ming the Merciless (although I feel Henry Brandon as Fu Manchu comes close), and he is ably supported by numerous lackeys. Middleton and Beatrice Roberts, as Queen Azura of Mars, manage to pull off a tandem villain performance that works, in the middle film of the trilogy, Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars, my favorite. Flash too is helped by a strong supporting cast of comic book-like characters. Most of the special effects are very hokey, making the films all the more fun, though. There is plenty of suspense, both from the cliffhanger endings of the episodes and the evolution of the relationships between the characters. Several villains turn fairly plausibly into good guys by the end. The second and third serials have good music too, including Liszt's Les Preludes, if I remember the title of the piece correctly. The first serial is in the National Registry of Film, along with Citizen Kane, Maltese Falcon and The Godfather. I enjoy other sci-fi serials like Undersea Kingdom and Crabbe's Buck Rogers, but these are real classics."

"If you are looking for high quality transfers of the Flash Gordon series, Image Entertainment is the best. Sound is clear, images are crisp and focused. The box set is by Image."
A premier packager of nostalgic television shows
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 04/25/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bridgestone Multimedia Group is a premier packager of nostalgic television shows and family-friendly movies for the home and community library video market. Their combination of highly quality programming and budget friendly pricing make their videos a "must" for collectors, fans, and patrons of public library video entertainment collections. One of their very best is the Flash Gordon Trilogy that starred Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon, Frank Shannon as Dr. Zarkov, and Charles Middleton as the unforgettable galactic villain, Ming The Merciless. The original Universal Studios Saturday afternoon movie serial was based on a Hollywood adaptation of the popular newspaper comics science fiction adventurer, his steadfast friends and colorful foes. Volume One (Flash Gordon, 1936, 246 minutes) is the complete serial and takes place on Planet Mongo, introducing the Hawkmen, Sharkmen, and Lionmen. Volume Two (Flash Gordon's Trip To Mars, 1938, 280 minutes) finds Ming allied with Azura, Queen of Magic and a colorful storyline involving the Clay People, the forest savages, and nothing short of the survival of earth is at stake! Volume Three (Flash Gordon Conquers The Universe, 1940, 235 minutes) finds Ming once more back on Mongo and introduces the kingdoms of Aboria and Frigia with earth about to be destroyed if Flash and his allies fail. For the movie buff it is very interesting to see how the quality of sound, photography, and set designs improved so rapidly every two years. The cliff hanger nature of each serial episode was edge-of-your-chair thrilling to their original audiences, and are works of pure nostalgia for we who are old enough to remember them still! Highly recommended!!"
Flash Gordon Boxed Set Perfect for Collection
Cheryl T. & Roger A. Meyer | Chestertown, NY United States | 06/22/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Where would science fiction films be today if there had been no Flash Gordon comic strip or movie serial. Yeah, those rocket ships and "Strato-Sleds" look pretty comical shooting out sparks and sounding like over strained electric orange squeezers. But those who remember seeing Flash Gordon in the movie theaters will tell you, these serials had kids sitting on the edge of their chairs and bursting to see what was "to be continued" next week. I first saw my first Flash Gordon serial on T.V. in the early 1950's and I'll tell you, I found it exiting then. Now we can laugh about much of the bad acting and the "odd" mistakes now and then, but this is real film history folks. Check out the titles on the intro of "Space Soldiers" and see if you notice where George Lucas got the idea for the intro titles for his "Star Wars" films. I give this collection four stars for it's worth to any collection! RAM."
