DCU: Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (DVD)

In this thrilling adaptation of the 2011 crossover comic book, time travel allows The Flash to prevent a family tragedy, but the temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality: his powers have disappeared, the Justice League does not exist and Aquaman and his Atlantean forces are waging a world war against Wonder Woman and the Amazons. With the help of a much grittier Batman -- who in this timeline is Thomas Wayne, Bruce's father -- and Cyborg, now a government agent, The Flash re-creates the incident that brought on the anomaly and restores his powers. But only by somehow going back in time and preventing his earlier self from setting the time ripple in motion can The Flash bring back true reality. Breathtaking action and an all-star voice cast combine for a bold, emotional vision that will forever change the landscape of the DC Universe.

The Flash wakes up in a world counting down to doomsday, and he's the only one that can stop it.

It's amazing what they managed to accomplish in only 81 minutes. It's as good as any episode of Justice League Unlimited. You should be cautious, because it is very bloody. Don't let the kids see this one. It's based off the Graphic Novel Flashpoint by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert. Unlike previous adaptations, they didn't try to imitate the art by Andy Kubert, instead they used the "house style" from Studio 4C, the Japanese Animation Studio responsible (most recently) for the Berserk movies. You can see it in the bits of CGI throughout the film. It looks fantastic, and you can also spot all sorts of character models carried over from Young Justice.

Seriously, let me reiterate, don't let kids watch this because no one is "safe."

If I can say one thing, that is I really like Cyborg in this. Previously, Cyborg's inclusion really felt like a token gesture. This movie, I feel, really legitimizes his inclusion in the Justice League. But, besides that, it really is a Flash centric story. We get so few movies that don't focus on Superman or Batman, hopefully this will prove that other heroes can carry films. I really love this movie.

Extras on the Bluray include

Audio Commentary with the Writer (Jim Kreig), Director (Jay Olivia), Producer (James Tucker), and the original author of the comic (Geoff Johns). I loved this commentary track.

A Flash in Time - A short featurette about the possibility of time travel. Honestly, it's not that informative. That's what happens when you try to explain theoretical physics in layman's terms.

The movie is amazing - but be warned, it is probably the most violent animated Justice league film I have seen. The PG-13 rating on this is no joke...

This movie is just plain good. I did not particularly enjoy the comic series or the aftermath with the New 52, but this movie was so much better than I expected. It made the story more cohesive and understandable. Like many others, I was very happy to see a Flash movie, though I do miss Wally West! This is a must for any comic fan but be forewarned: this movie is violent. This is a modern tale of the super hero genre. Kids need to watch something like All-Star Superman. I put this up there with Under the Red Hood.

I'm a sucker for alternate universe stories, given how they allow characters we all know to go outside the boundaries of how they are written and this movie does not disappoint. Gritty, violent and fun. You will not be disappointed. I hope DC keeps cranking these out.

I waited for this release with eager anticipation and I wasn't disappointed. The movie flowed well with the Flash as the main character as well as the alternate Batman who was Bruce Wayne's father in this version. This is also Flash story, so you would have to know a little something about the villains and supporting cast around the Flash. I'm also speaking on the Barry Allen Flash, and not the Wally West Flash which is going back at least 20 or even 30 years. I have not followed a Flash series since the 80s. However, I think the story does a decent job explaining these characters if your not familiar with the Flash characters.

But this isn't just about the Flash, this is really a crazy version about what if you change something in your life. Does it effect other people around you, even your closest friends? Clearly, the answer is yes in this movie. This starts with Flash as he saves his mom from being murdered only to find the World on the brink of World War 3. Aquaman and Wonder Woman are main the antagonists here who use their empires to plunge the Earth into chaos. Superman also is found hidden away by the United States Government as a socially crippled man treated like some science experiment gone array. In this alternate reality of Superman, his rocket crashed in Metropolis that killed thousands, instead of crashing in rural Kanas where no one was hurt. Thus, from childhood, Superman is raised in a harsh government facility instead of the farm life of his loving adoptive parents, the Kents.

I don't want to ruin the movie for you, but reading up the Flashpoint comic book series would help understand some of these changes. I think the movie stayed on point and told an effective story, even better than the comic books. I would rate this as well done.

Overall, DC Animated has done an excellent job of bringing numerous DC characters and stories to DVD/Blu-Ray over the past several years. It's great to see these characters become more accessible to a wider audience. Unfortunately, too many focus on the Big Two (Superman and Batman), but ignore the rest. Yet the DC Universe is a deep one with numerous great characters and stories.

Here we find a great story set in an alternate timeline - something that DC does quite well. And it centers on the character that launched the Silver Age of Comics, Barry Allen's The Flash.

This is a violent DC adaptation, but not gratuitous. The film is well paced and plotted. It may be necessary to know a few things about standard DC fare, like who Superman and Batman are and a bit about their backstories, though I'd guess that just about everyone knows those.

If you're a DC fan, you'll be giddy to see alternate versions of favorites - Black Manta, Cyborg, Batman, etc.

Yet at the heart of this is a story and a great one at that. The beginning and end are tied together so well. We also get to see the main character, Barry Allen as The Flash, grow from beginning to end. There's action and consequences of those actions throughout. You'll be left with something to think about and a desire to watch it again.

This animated film also touches on the possibilities for a Justice League live action film, but also for a film of The Flash - and one is rumored to follow the next Superman flick (featuring Batman! Yay!). When you see Flash run up a tall building, jump, glide across a helicopter blade, bounce off a building, and run on top of the water - well, you can see the cinematic possibilities of seeing his powers on display.
