About Flash Gordon

Flash Gordon: A Sci-Fi Classic

In 1980, director Mike Hodges brought the iconic comic strip hero Flash Gordon to the big screen in a colorful and campy sci-fi adventure. Starring Sam J. Jones as the titular hero, along with Max von Sydow as the villainous Ming the Merciless and a supporting cast that included Timothy Dalton and Brian Blessed, Flash Gordon was a visually stunning and entertaining romp through the galaxy.

The film's soundtrack, composed and performed by the legendary rock band Queen, added to the film's energy and excitement. The band's anthemic theme song, "Flash," became an instant classic and remains a beloved rock anthem to this day.

Despite mixed reviews upon its initial release, Flash Gordon has since become a cult classic and a beloved piece of sci-fi cinema. Its colorful visuals, over-the-top performances, and catchy soundtrack have earned it a place in the hearts of fans around the world.

As Rolling Stone magazine noted in their retrospective review of the film, "Flash Gordon may not be high art, but it's a damn good time at the movies." And with its enduring popularity and influence on the sci-fi genre, it's clear that Flash Gordon is a film that will continue to entertain and inspire for years to come.
