Sex, camp and good fun!
12 April 1999 | by (Tonsberg, Norway) – See all my reviews

This is truly a camp classic, ripe for discovery by those who love and cherish hysterical over-acting, horrid sex-jokes and flagrant innuendo.

The plot is, well,....quite basic: Sex-rays from the planet Porno (presumably somewhere near the Porn-star..) hits Earth and threatens to destroy the morals of mankind. Flesh Gordon, after almost succumbing to those very same rays teams up with the lightly clad Dale Ardor and dr. Flexi Jerkoff. Together they fly off to Porno in a penile spaceship to destroy the evil Wang and his sex-ray machine. OK? Here they meet Penisauruses, the gay (in every sense) men of Sherwood forest, a surly monster (close cousin to King Kong) and an army of perverts, cavorting on the floors of Wang's palace. Wang himself seems somewhat miffed when Flesh complains about the sex-rays destroying morality :"Why, you should THANK me!" The pantomime plot has side-splitting moments and good fun, but at the end of the day it all bubbles down to one word: Sex. This is, effectively, a porn movie, with most of the porn removed (at least in this version), and a mixture of ludicrously funny sight gags and some elaborate special effects thrown into the mix.

I enjoyed "Flesh Gordon", because it never stops moving and is always funny. In fact, it's a real treat, and the intended satire on the mores of American science-fiction is spot-on. (including the priceless sight-gag of Dr.Jerkoff starting his rocket-engine with a car-ignition key!) There is also a shot of a stranded spaceship which looks ominously like that one at the start of ALIEN. In fact, it looks like H.R.Giger must have been HEAVILY influenced by it! See this movie!
