He’s here to save every one of us! Heroic earthling Flash Gordon protects the world from the nefarious Ming the Merciless in this lavish, majestically camp adaptation of Alex Raymond’s legendary sci-fi comic strip. The story is space opera purity at its finest: Ming has developed a plan to destroy the Earth, and Flash and his companion, Dale Arden, are called upon to stop him. Along the way, Flash must battle Ming’s goons and the temptations of a luscious space princess. An ecstatic explosion of comic-inspired production design and visual resplendence, every flamboyant flourish is exaggerated for maximum pleasure. And the whole thing is set to an iconic score by Queen.
