“Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox” is a revelation. An all-too-rare gem of a film that goes to places with classic comic book superheroes you can’t imagine any group of filmmakers would dare. It’s one thing to read and see a story like this on the page. It’s an entirely different thing to experience it on a visceral level as a motion picture.

Based upon the DC comics storyline “Flashpoint” by Geoff Johns, “The Flashpoint Paradox” is – at heart – an emotional, introspective journey centered on one of DC’s lesser-known heroes, Barry Allen aka the Flash.

Screenwriter Jim Krieg skillfully manages to adapt most of Johns’ main storyline while adding an original prologue that emotionally anchors the film in Barry Allen’s tragic childhood loss of his mother, and the guilt he carries into his adult life in not having saved her life. Krieg has also scripted a smart, humorous and sophisticated opening action sequence involving the main Justice League characters. Like most great screenwriters, Krieg knows if you’re going to deconstruct the most famous DC superheroes throughout your script, showing them as brutal vigilantes and ruthless killers for the balance the film, you better first give them all a moment to shine at their heroic best.

This is a time-travel story into an alternative universe, and following these opening scenes, Barry Allen awakes from dozing-off at his workstation to find a world inverted. DC’s most enduring heroes are now the most violent, out-of-control threat the planet has ever faced.

Bruce Wayne was killed, not his parents. His father Thomas Wayne is the Batman, an alcoholic consumed by loss who dispatches his victims with a gun in each hand or a toss off a rooftop.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A.P. Fuchs, author of The Axiom-man Saga TOP 1000 REVIEWER on July 31 2013
Format: Blu-ray
When the Flash cranks up the superspeed and travels back in time to right a painful wrong, the timeline is drastically altered and he awakes in a present that’s not the one he knows. There’s a war raging between the Atlanteans and Amazons, Batman uses guns, Cyborg works for the government and Superman is nowhere to be found. Worse, the Flash no longer has his superpowers thus cannot travel back in time to repair the damage and restore the timeline to the one he knew.

Powerless and with no Justice League to turn to, the Flash must decide how he’s going to change the course of history and if he’s willing to lose someone he loves in the effort to save the lives of many.

This flick is the ultimate fanboy trip for Flash lovers. He’s the main character and this is the first time in DC animated movie history that he gets the focus. You got superspeed, time travel, alternate timelines, the Speedforce and more. Way cool and, frankly, it’s about time DC took a break from Superman and Batman as the go-to guys for movies, even in the context of a JLA movie. With a new Flash TV series in production as of this review, I’m thinking this was DC’s way of priming the pump, so to speak, to get audiences ready for more adventures with the Scarlet Speedster.

This movie’s strength lies in two areas: the Flash, and time travel.

On the Flash: you got a quick recap of his origin, a real sense for what drives Barry Allen, multiple amazing displays of superspeed (especially that running sequence at the end), and a hero to root for from start to finish. I loved it. As a DC guy, I like the Flash, but this film really made me appreciate him and care for him all the more as it gave a strong face to his mythology and character.

On time travel: I love time travel stories.

First off, it's impossible to stick to the comics. The source material is always (I mean always) too big and too vast. You have to trim the story down and alter it...to fit the format of an animated movie. And this movie works. It is an eye opening story about how the Flash wished he could have saved a loved one. And a master villain looking at ways to manipulate that desire the Flash has. The story is incredibly told. It's violent. Very violent. We are talking beheadings, we are talking getting shot in the head and seeing the hole through the skull. This movie is rated PG-13 for a reason. This movie is NOT for little kids. They even use words like a-hole and SOB (in long form) in this movie.
If you are looking for the first Flash movie...look no further...you have found it. And it's amazing.

The best Justice League animated film yet. I haven't read the comic though so I can't compare it to that.

By Theo TOP 500 REVIEWER on Sept. 20 2014
Format: Blu-ray
This film brings back a depth that's long been lacking in DC Animated productions - particularly in their one off feature films. Older fans might almost consider this work a very welcome blast from the past - a return to the halcyon days of Justice League Unlimited. I wouldn't quite say The Flashpoint Paradox shares the moral depth of that show at its absolute best. But it does come very close.

The film diverges far more markedly from that older material in just how dark it is prepared to get, and in just how far it is prepared to go. Stories set in alternate worlds have always granted writers permission to explore vastly more extreme events and outcomes than would be allowed in the proprietor's canonical universe. On home turf creators must always labor under the commercial requirement to keep all the main pieces of intellectual property intact. And let's face it: it's tough to create the illusion that anything is ever really at stake when characters and their worlds always seem ultimately to return to the manufacturer's default settings. But if there's one thing I can virtually guarantee about The Flashpoint Paradox, it's that it will take you places you never even imagined DC would go.

I'd also like to add that this film has an exceptionally strong soundtrack, courtesy of composer Frederick Wiedmann. We're all used to seeing DCAU features with amazing production values, but this score is another step up yet again. Like the film itself, it's of an entirely different order to anything we've experienced in a long while. I very much hope we'll be hearing more from Wiedmann in the future.

There are only two reservations I would express about this film.

First, this is NOT something you want to be showing to young children. It just isn't, okay?
