It is the best Documentary I have ever seen
17 July 2019 | by jlehmann-61958See all my reviews

It is a documentary about the cult Movie "Flash Gordon" with interesting interviews of the cast and how the movie came to be, but also an insight of the life of its main character star Sam J. Jones. In his part he shares his life before and after "Flash Gordon" with his fans in a deeply moving and honest way. You will also learn about his other life in which he is a real hero, an even greater one as in his movies- he is a Hollywood Star to look up too. "Life after Flash" is really worth watching and has also a lot of special features. I can only say if you liked the movie "Flash Gordon" or you are a fan of Sam J. Jones - get it, watch it - it is great....
