User Reviews

Good smutty humor, watch for good Harreyhausen-stylism.
16 March 2004 | by Moon-7See all my reviews

An underrated classic of adult humor. If you can find it in the original x-rated version, it's worth a watch. The campiness just drips from every scene and if you're an old fan of the Buster Crabbe serials, there is much to laugh at here as old cliches get "blown" away.

One thing I rarely see mentioned is the Harreyhausen-esque special effetcs..the skeleton soldiers were a delight, albeit lifted from the old Jason and the Argonauts film (at least stylistically).

The climax (sorry) with the stop-motion monster parodies both Flash and King Kong.

Dig through the credits to find Rick Baker and contemplate on how far he has come and, for SF fans, the early Bjo Trimble, long associated with the original Star Trek series and SF Fandom (Hiya Beej..grin).

Watch this back to back with the (other) modern Flash Gordon movie for a riotous evening with friends who like cheesy (but way fun) films.
