It's Here! Ahhh-ahhh ....

As expected, Studio Canal+ did a top-notch job on it's 4K restroration for this intergalactic gem of campery. The sets, costumes & even the wobbly FX work have never looked more colourful & Queen's legendary music becomes the anthem is deserves with the sound at an all-time high. The steelbook is a terrific design that keeps in tone with the movie & takes a proud place among my other 4K collectables. The special features however may need an all-nighter to fully enjoy! Well done again to Zavvi on a spotless delivery :)

For the new 40th Anniversary 4k restoration, Flash Gordon was scanned from the original 35mm negative to produce 4K files. Over 500 hours of manual restoration repaired serious damage that included image instability, scratches and intermittent flicker. The sound was scanned from the original track negative and underwent restoration to improve issues ranging from audio drop-outs throughout the feature and during reel changes, digital clicks and optical distortion. The film was colour graded for theatrical, home entertainment and 4K HDR release, using previous digital releases and 35mm prints as a reference. In line with the Director's vision and the original 35mm cinema release, VFX work was applied to remove the strings in all scenes where visible. This restoration was approved by Director Mike Hodges in May 2020, and will include the first 4K HDR Dolby Vision master of Flash Gordon

Flash Gordon 4K UHD

Just responding to the other review. I have no idea how good this will look but I did meet Sam J. Jones a few months back and he said the 4K restoration was fantastic. None of the Robocop movies are available in 4K. The original movie was remastered in 4K but only released on standard 1080p Blu Ray. I am sure that Flash with the benefit of HDR that UHD brings will be the definitive home release.

Gordans alive after 40 years

I own the dvd release the Blu-ray release with a 5.1 sound track. unless the sound track is released in Dolby Atmos or in 7.1 i cant see the point in spending the extra money i really can't see how the picture is gong to be any better than the 2D Blu-ray version from a 1980 negative. There comes a point when you can only improve a old negative of a movie so far. After buying the 4k Robocop movie i felt pritty ripped off to be honest i even set up 2 Sony TVs same model same settings same soundbar same Blu-ray players & for some reason praps someone can tell me why but the 2D Blu-ray version is better in quality.. So i can see the same thing happening with Flash Gordon. It would have been good if they made a 2nd Movie but not a remake see if you can spot Robbie Caltrain in this Flash Gordon move. Im not saying not to buy the movie if you don't own it in another format then yes why not its a classic with one of the best movie sound tracks of all time & a lot of the cast from the Star wars movies in it i love the movie its great fun with some great classic 80s humour & lets not forget Brian Blessed ((( Gordon's alive line ))) which he still does at conventions a real loud legend.. Ive given this movie a 4/5 star rating mainly due to everyone should own this classic in some form or another praps Zavvi could add in the listing of this movie what sound tracks & languages will be on the 4K disc.
