"Flash Gordon: The Official Story of the Film provides an unprecedented historical account of the 1980 film."
"John Walsh has assembled an impressive number of new interviewees and trawled the archives. Even the most hardcore fans will find something new. It's the visuals that really prove its worth. From original '30s Alex Raymond comic strips to on-set photos and concept art from Nicolas Roeg's abandoned version of the movie, it's as much of a feast for the eyes as a Mongo sky."
