Flash Gordon

Very pleased with the service and excellent film and love my steelbook

Flash Gordon 4K Steelbook

This item is a fantastic purchase. The Steel book is wonderful. The picture quality and sound quality on the 4K disc cannot be faulted. There are some online videos complaiing of dialogue coming from rear and surrounds and not just from the front speakers. But that's the film. It's how it was designed. Buy this, you won't be disappointed.

Cheese Fest

4K cheese fest. Horrendous acting, dodgy effects and abysmal dialogue but who cares. It’s brilliant and Gordon’s Alive!

Worthwhile upgrade over the previous blu-ray

I have only been able to check the blu-ray and extras so far, but the picture quality is a big upgrade over the 2010 disc. As mentioned in another review, there are no deleted scenes as such - just a very brief description and even that is rather vague! No stills, no rehearsal footage etc. The best extra is the section on Nic Roeg's plans for the film. I have mixed feelings on seeing this.. you get a sense of what might have been, and Roeg's film would have been a more mature affair. Flash is fun, certainly, but what if it had credited the audience with more intelligence? The sound mix for this edition is unusual. The dialogue is routed to the front speakers and everything else to the rear (at least that is how it seems on my setup). My receiver was not able to decode the 5.1 properly at first and it took a while to realise the front/rear split is not a mistake. If it gets annoying there is a perfectly good two channel mix to fall back on. I guess these are just minor problems. Overall this edition is worth getting.

The best worst film just got better

The picture quality on this is excellent, really a miracle for such an old film. The expanded colour that 4K brings really shines on this film.

Camp Classic

Great steelbook and 4K transfer. The best quality you are likely to see this film in.

flash gordon

very happy great steelbook film is amazing quality best version came very quick

Great 4K - PIty about the extras

The picture & sound on this restoration are top notch. The styling on the SteelBook cover and design is really smart. The extras...are very brief indeed, they sound impressive listed out but many run for just a couple of minutes. ‘Deleted scenes’ doesn’t actually include any deleted scenes

Worth The Wait

I have been waiting for a new release of Flash Gordon on 4K and Steelbook for a long time. Having missed the Mondo release, and not willing to pay through the nose for it now, (was not 4K anyway), I am glad I waited for this one. A solid release with good amount of extras, you get a 4K, BluRay, and Extras disc.

Flash Gordon 4k

Sound and picture are very good.really enjoyed watching the updated version.
