Movie Review – The Flash

Read Time:2 Minute, 52 Second

I wasn’t looking forward to this movie and to be honest, I really didn’t want to like it. The DC Extended Universe has been a hot mess and now James Gunn is coming in and burning it all down. It’s unclear how much, if any, of the current DCEU will carry over to the new DCU (DC Universe).

I watched James Gunn’s explanation, and it’s still clear as mud. My take, just take the current slate of DC movies as one-offs and enjoy them for what they are and don’t expect to ever see them continued.

So this movie is pretty much a one-and-done for The Flash and I figured it was mostly just going to be a waste of time. But then something strange happened: I started liking the movie.

Now, to be clear, it’s not awesome, but it does a better job than most. It has a lot, I mean a LOT, in common with Spider-Man: No Way Home. Much of the charm of this movie is in the synthesis with old Batman movies. Viewers who have watched all of the DC movies going back to the original Michael Keaton Batman will enjoy getting a heavy dose of nostalgia. If you’re unfamiliar with the past Batman movies then your mileage may vary.

This app is the best wingman for a movie goer, especially when you have to go. It even has a vibrating timer that is spot on for those ‘go times’ some of us need! There are many other features that are wonderful. It even lets you know when the kill scenes are coming up for the people and animals for those who may have sensitivities to that type of content. The staff go above and beyond!

I’ll save the spoilers for the end of this review, in case you haven’t seen the movie yet, but pretty much every story choice they made in this movie hit the mark.

A Tempting Villain

It isn’t unique, but rare that a superhero movie like this doesn’t really have a villain. If there is a villain in this movie, then I’d say it’s temptation and not an actual character. The multiverse is really starting to infect everything these days. Spider-Man has one, both in the MCU and animated series, obviously the MCU has a multiverse and now DC does as well.

The rules of a multiverse may vary from one franchise to another, but I seems generally true that every possible outcome happens in some universe. That idea was briefly examined in Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Strange pointed out to Wanda that she should take solace in that in some universe she is a happy mother, even if she can’t be that person. I would enjoy a story exploring the existential crisis of motivation for a character who realizes that if all possible outcomes happen in one multiverse or another then what does it matter if they struggle in this particular universe? Only to be told by the wizard-character that they struggle against the inevitable in every universe because their character never gives up.

Grade: B

About The Peetimes: I have 4 Peetimes for this movie, but the last one is an emergency Peetime with a lot of action. The 3rd Peetime is best. It’s a long travel/infiltration scene with no action until the Peetime is over.

There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Flash.

    I REALLY enjoyed this movie, more then I would say most of the Superhero movies from the last 10 years. It had a great script, the acting and so many surprises were so great, I mean you were wondering what is going to happen next, I mean there was more then a few that REALLY surprised me, and I did not think this needed a villian, as we can be our own one sometimes with our own actions, and this shows you how wanting to make things right can change everything. I would give it a solid A

  3. I enjoyed this movie way more than I thought I would!! So many fun LOL moments, and the sudden surprise cameos were terrific.

    My grade jumped from an entertaining B to a heartfelt B+++++ when Michael Keaton reminded all the naysayers who HE, and HE alone, is.♥️♥️
