12 September 2003 | by (Enfield) – See all my reviews

first off let me say that this is the only version of Flash Gordon that I like, secondly i must also point out that i am too young to have seen the serials of flash gordon that used to play in movie theaters so many years ago, That being said. Flash Gordon tells the story of Football star and all around nice guy flash gordon who is hurrled off into space to battle an evil alien emperor named Ming the merciless. This shows us the prejudice of the world has an effect on pop culture, Such as the Klingons and the Romulans of "Star Trek" are modeled ofter the enemies of the day the Russians ad the chinese.
