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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
If you are looking for the first Flash movie...look no further...you have found it. And it's amazing.
The plot is very interesting --- Flash does a good deed in the past which alters the future so that the Justice League (and even the Flash!!!) don't exist, Aquaman and Wonder Woman are quite evil, Hal Jordan and others are killed, etc. It's like a variation of the alternate universe story line. The twist on Batman's character is very cool indeed.
However, there's little time to develop the idea because Aquaman and Wonder Woman are having a war which will destroy the human race and the longer the Flash stays in the past the less likely he'll be able to change it and escape it. So there's s lot of brutal fighting taking up most of the film and after a while it fails to hold my attention.
Another gripe I have with this and other newer DC feature films is the use of Japanese style animation. I see the cool looking DVD cover and it builds up an expectation of how good the film will look. Seeing the cheaper style animation in the actual film is a let down. Other DC cartoons have this same problem.
I bought this on blu-ray for less than $10. I can't say the blu-ray looks any better than the DVD I rented when it came out. It's a decent film for less than $10 but you may want to rent it before you buy it..
