Take a wild guess at what happens. True, this is no Star Wars, but it isn't intended to be. It stays true to the campiness of the comic strip and the low budget aspects of the old serials from the 30's. The makers of the film turn it into something fun and humorous. I'll admit, Jones and Anderson weren't my choices for the lead characters, but the supporting cast is excellent, especially Ornella Muti as the seductive Princess Aura and Brian Blessed as the always tough (and always humorous) Prince Vultan.
The great rock score from Queen helps a bit, as does the costume design and art direction. It's not a perfect sci-fi tale, but it's certainly good fun!
