trying to sell the cheesy special effects, terrible costumes and bad acting as something good for anyone else to
have to see.
That being said, there is still, undeniably, a certain mystique and charm about the stories and characters.
Larry 'Buster' Crabbe was well cast for the role of Flash and Charles Middleton does a superb job as one of the
greatest villains of all time - Ming the Merciless. The rest of the cast does a fair portrayal in their various roles, but
there are some truly lame ducks in this supporting group. Of course this adds to the overall humor of the serials,
quite unintentionally, I'm sure. The different races and cultures they encounter in their adventures on Mongo and
then Mars, are both interesting and ludicrous at the same time, providing for a good laugh at some points. And of
course, the 'cliff-hanger' endings to each of the chapters really adds to the nostalgia. This was 'old-time' cinema
at its best. Innocent, naive and entertaining. Just bring a little imagination with you to bridge the gaps and leave your skepticism at home and you will begin to appreciate and enjoy these movies.
All three of the Flash Gordon serials are presented in the box set as they were originally released in their chapter
by chapter format. The DVD quality is good and far exceeds any of the VHS tapes previously released. This is a
good 'buy'. If you have ever wanted to own any of the Flash Gordon movies, I highly recommend this set.
