Editorial Reviews

We all wish for the chance to go back in time and change the things, for The Flash, that coveted chance is within reach. He traverses time to right a violent, decades-past crime against his mother, but the ripples of his good intentions prove disastrous, as a fractured, alternate reality now exists in place of the familiar one. Stumbling through this twisted reality where even Superman is nowhere to be found, The Flash seeks the trusted wisdom of Batman, only to find a grittier, more violent Dark Knight in his place. Together with the help of Cyborg, they race to restore the continuity of Flash's original timeline while this new world is ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman's Amazons and the Atlanteans, led by a battle hardened Aquaman. With breath taking action and an all-star voice cast featuring Kevin Conroy, C. Thomas Howell and Dana Delany, it's a bold, emotional vision that will forever change the landscape of the DC Universe!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really surprised me July 18, 2013
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for young children! July 20, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Now THIS is a Justice League movie July 21, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Say "Goodbye" to Everything You Knew August 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
No spoilers.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars DC On Parade July 23, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a Serious Flash Super Hero Movie... July 18, 2013
Format:DVD
Yes.....this is by far the first serious Flash Movie and the way they did it with an alternate reality was super cool because it has great story line. I would put it up there with the resent Dark Knight Returns movie with no hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing August 9, 2013
By John
Format:Blu-ray
3rd best DC Animated Universe movie, right behind Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker and The Dark Knight Returns. This movie is epic, with more violence than any previous animated DC venture.

4.0 out of 5 stars GETTING BETTER AND MORE GROWN UP August 15, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Violence, blood and a harsh story line that is unflinching and brutal. Its about time. From the war brought on by an affair between Wonder Woman and Aquaman that leads to the decapitation of Aquamans wife. Then this new, dark version of Batman (If you can even say that about the Dark Knight) who actually uses GUNS to a world that is without the Green Latern. I will actually buy this movie from Amazon
