Trivia

A number of up-and-coming special effects artists worked on the film, including Rick Baker, Jim Danforth, Dave Allen, and Dennis Muren. The effects ended up being so good that the film was actually in line for an Oscar nomination for visual effects; however, the Academy chose not to give an award in that category that year because so few films had featured visual effects.

Superb
21 June 2004 | by (Luxembourg) – See all my reviews

The beauty of Flesh Gordon is that it has no pretensions to seriousness. Much soft porn of the 70's was so mind-bogglingly asinine that lots of us nearly gave up sex. Flesh is so totally different, being funny, that it remains in my memory from the time I saw it in the Mid-70's. I still remember Dr Jerkoff unveiling his spaceship shaped like a giant erect phallus with the words "Fortunately I was able to complete the design before the Sex-ray took effect".

The word 'Penisaurus' has passed into the vocabulary of Britain now, as an insult, obviously. The rapist robots with their little spring willys still linger in my memory.

If I had seen it alone I would probably have walked out, but as a teenage miscreant with a friend it was hysterical. If you are not offended by the sight of breasts and enjoy a laugh watch it with some friends and a beer or two. Excellent fun.
