DCU: Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (DVD)

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!

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.

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.

Let me first start by saying this film is not for younger audiences. It contains graphic depictions of violence, sexual situations, and mature language.

Realizing how that is in and of itself a deterrent for some viewers, I argue that it is done with some taste and rather than trying to glorify violence it seeks to depict its savage nature, and not simplify the world for sake of the story. Additionally one must understand the intended audience is essentially my demographic. (Adult male,29 at the time of this writing). Most depictions of our favorite heroes while entertaining in their own right have, at least in cinema, lacked until recently, a certain sense of realism. Hence the recent wave of darker depictions of iconic characters. Every perspective to up until recently has been one aimed at a particularly young audience, and studios have begun to realize the potential in tapping that older audience. So, if you are not particularly partial to violent content you may want to steer clear of this viewing, but it is sophisticated enough that it warrants a chance.

In any event this is easily one of the better offerings in the DC animated universe, that deals with one of the central story arcs in the DC comics universe: The Flash Point Paradox.

I would argue that the nature of the story does not lend itself to those who are uninitiated to the DC universe. The very crux of the story is sort of a what if scenario for all of your favorite DC characters. Most of which in this case do not result in the same heroic roles as their mainstream counterparts. What happens if superman never landed in Smallville? What if Bruce Wayne never became Batman? What if earths greatest heroes were at war with one another?
