This documentary doesn't quite know what it wants to be. Is it a biography of the actor Sam J. Jones or a heartfelt look at a cult classic movie? It tries to be both and doesn't quite succeed. The one thing the documentary did right was score some great interviews from a whole host of people. But as soon as one subject is being discussed and it is getting interesting the subject is dropped and it is on to something else. I've been a huge fan of Flash Gordon since first seeing it on HBO in the early 80's. So I was really interested in all the behind the scenes stuff. And this documentary had a ton of great stuff about the movie.
