Of course the "genre" is that of movies where you personally know the
Producer/Director, they ask you for your opinion of the movie, and the
best that you can come up with is "The colour was good.".
I watched this movie in the company of a large proportion of the cast and crew, and even they didn't take it seriously - in fact, the viewing experience was enhanced by the company's insertion of "deleted" lines from the script (there must have been one because the actors - to use the term incredibly loosely - did talk throughout most of the movie).
By its fifth repetition, the movie's "signature line" - "Captain, there's Oxygen out here." (uttered in an incredibly bad imitation of a Scots brogue by the movie's incredibly bad imitation of Star Trek's "Scottie") had become indelibly engraved in my mind.
Of course if you want an incredibly silly movie with practically no "production values" to watch while stoned, this is probably the one for you.
If you are a fan of big breasts, and go to your local video store with breasts on your mind, then this is the movie for you. Howard Ziehm may be an alias for Russ Meyer as this film is filled with mammary mountains, a bar filled with adult babies which only serves varieties of milk, and various other breast scenes. The highlight is when Melissa Mounds offers her ample assets to Doc Flexi on a platter. This is a breast man's classic. i really loved it this film is funny
Alright, I'll be the first to admit that I didn't know what to expect
from a title such as "Flesh Gordon".I knew there would be some pretty
raunchy stuff in it, perhaps some slightly tasteful soft-core, but I
wasn't expecting *this*.
FGMtC is one of those movies that you can tell immediately came from the '80s. Flesh himself sports a wicked mullet, and the outfits seem to be cast offs from the NY night clubs.
Why a rating of 8? Simple. This is one of those movies that is soooo bad, it has to be seen to be believed. The acting is atrocious, the settings are laughably 3rd rate, the dialog is hackneyed and spends most of the movie in the poor taste pile, and the special effects are bottom of the barrel. And those are the good points! I honestly almost wet myself laughing while watching this. If you dig movies like Plan 9 From Outer Space, but with tons of T 'n A, you'll get a kick out it.
If you've got any taste whatsoever, approach with caution.
Despite its silliness, vulgar content and awkward moments, Flesh Gordon
doesn't stop nor does it keep viewers waiting for something to happen.
Every line of dialogue brings a smile to our faces, even if it's just a
corny joke or some slapstick comedy. The performances in this film are
memorable, and the actors truly have a relationship with their
characters, giving it their all! I'm giving this film 9/10 because
there's a lot of things that could've been amended, some being just way
too over-the-top or never looked back on (especially the intro). The
theme gives this film some bonus points, as the music used is catchy
and demands to be on download / Official Soundtrack CD!
Worth seeing? Certainly! Worth seeing time after time? For me, yes (and not just for the... adult content)! An excellent film for the immature and those who love large.... female upper body parts (there's LOADS, I say!).
This is so audacious it deserves some attention. Sure it is juvenile
and cheesy. The problem of course is it somehow conflates excrement and
sex, both in the story and the manner of telling the story. That ruins
it: it is no "Barbarella."
But it has a framing worthy of "Orgazmo." It starts by being a cheap movie that the characters step out of. And then seamlessly they step back into it. What starts out as an aversion to boogers turns into a society of turds, a field of farts, an attack dick, a collection of pseudoscience revolving around erectile dysfunction (though the term didn't exist then) and submission rays. No mention of gleet.
That movie within a movie thing is pretty cool, especially when what you see is stupid. It gives an excuse, after all, you are not seeing the real movie, but the cheesy movie within. Worked great for an even cheesier production: "Robot Monster."
Ted's Evaluation -- 2 of 3: Has some interesting elements.
A sequel that no one wanted as it seems. And that can be very, very
annoying. But I can see that some might like the completely OTT
approach to the movie. There are so many sexual sight gags in it, that
you'll either shake your head in disbelieve or won't be able to stop
laughing. If a movie like ... "Movie 43" can produce laughs (arguably
with better actors, at least name wise), than why should this be
treated differently/worse? So it changed the lead actor from part 1,
but the time difference between movies made this inevitable.
To call this silly would be an understatement. The acting, if you can call it that, is bad at best, the hair and make-up feels like it's from another dimension (which almost makes it work). But there are still fans for that sort of thing out there. And while this wasn't planned as porn, it does have some nudity in it as well.

The 'Flash Gordon' movie was less cheesy hard as that is to believe.
But when the movie might lack any legitimate qualities, it features
plenty of what every other movie lacks of extremely crude humor,
creature effects, music, miniature spacecrafts and plenty of bountiful
boobs! And it has Vince Murdocco, the dashing leading man for the
ladies, a kick-boxer with an awesome mullet, perfectly ridden of acting
abilities, compensated for with all the times he get naked. Along is
Morgan Fox as head-cheerleader, who kidnap him to save the universe
from frigidness, once making Flesh tell her to "keep her panties on".
She replies "I never wear panties, Flesh, but I will if you agree to
help us!" Funny when every lady who strip down keep panties on as
There's too many highlights to mention! The meta-film opening featuring a Von Stroheim spoof! The mad scientist who laughs like Krusty The Clown! The turd people! Or the scene with the cheerleaders, cheerfully sliding through a river of semen! At end we are promised a third Flesh Gordon movie which haven't happened yet, but with the huge time-gap between the two first movies I think it's still possible! Cross fingers!
This movie is absolutely stupid, but it contains one of the funniest
scene I've seen in years: Master Bator has created a being that looks
like an octopus, and while this being is trying to lick the legs of
Dale Ardor, Evil Presence beholds the creature (which he hadn't seen
before) and exclaims: "What is that disgusting green slime doing?
He lifts the creature and throws it into a hole in the ground like a basketball. Master Bator is shocked by that and Evil Presence says: "Two points!" This scene nearly killed me. Unfortunately, the rest of the movie is crap: 2 / 10.
If you are a fan of big breasts, and go to your local video store with breasts on your mind, then this is the movie for you. Howard Ziehm may be an alias for Russ Meyer as this film is filled with mammary mountains, a bar filled with adult babies which only serves varieties of milk, and various other breast scenes. The highlight is when Melissa Mounds offers her ample assets to Doc Flexi on a platter. This is a breast man's classic.
Because I liked the special effects and stop-motion animation from the first film, I decided to check out the sequel. It contains stop-motion animation and special effects too but they pale beside the work done in the original. Several of the people who worked on the original were later Academy Award winners (such as Rick Baker and Dennis Muren) but the effects in this one are not as good and are few and far between. As far as porno films go, this one has less nudity in it than the original had. It's mostly crude toilet humor and bad acting. Dialogue scenes go one forever and the sound mix is so bad you can't understand what anyone is saying most of the time but since nothing said pertains to the plot (if there is one) then it doesn't matter. It starts out trying to create a 1930s atmosphere which is good but after that, it's a bunch of half naked people standing around talking. The first film is faster paced and better made and looks like STAR WARS compared to this.
