After a parade of filmmakers and screenwriters, Andy Muschietti led the team that made the adaptation of Flashpoint possible and the Argentine filmmaker managed to deliver us a roller coaster of emotions with elements of nostalgia and the surprise factor as great ingredients of one of the Best DC Comics movies ever.
One of the movies that gave DC Comics several headaches was The Flash, which seemed quite far away, but after a series of director changes and the ravages of the Covid pandemic, finally the Scarlet Sprinter movie
Barry Allen seeks to balance his facet as a superhero and his work as a forensic investigator, but upon discovering that thanks to the speed force he can go back in time to make amends, Flash manages to prevent the murder of his mother, Nora Allen, but reality changes drastically.
For this reason, the Scarlet Sprinter will seek help to prevent a greater evil from taking over both the earth and the Universe, in a battle never seen before.
A roller coaster of emotions
For this film, Christina Hodson built a script inspired by Flashpoint, the story that Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert gave us in 2011, which introduced us to the changes in the DC Universe, prior to the New 52 stage.
More than 10 years later, Fash as a film works like this moment in which, in order to prepare for the future, one must not lose sight of the past and present of the DC Universe on the big screen.
Unlike the comic, in this new reality it allows us to see the return of Michael Keaton as a retired Batman for several years and Michael Shannon again as General Zod.
A pleasant surprise for the DC tapes was Sasha Calle’s debut as Supergirl, delivering a quite powerful Kara Zor-El, not only as that Kryptonian figure, but also as a transcendental ally in Flash’s fight to restore the universe.
Even Ron Livingston and Maribel Verdú shine when required. Far from being that tragic figure for which Barry changes reality, Maribel Verdú wins over everyone like Nora Allen because of her charisma, her grace and tenderness that she embodies as Barry Allen’s mother.
One of the applauded details of the film directed by Andy Muschietti is that Flash does not forget the past, and not only guides us to a dizzying present, but also begins to lay the foundations for a future that promises important things.
SMASH Verdict ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The movie that DC fans were asking for is finally a reality. Flash is one of the most accomplished feature films in a long time, where nostalgia, references and action strike a perfect balance.
Andy Muschietti and Christina Hodson make the adaptation of Flashpoint their own, and like the saga by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert, they manage to change the landscape for the DC Universe, where the projects planned by James Gunn and Peter Safran will seek to give direction to a interesting universe.
In addition to the debut of Sasha Calle as Supergirl and the return of Michael Keaton as Batman, the cameos that appear in the film are unmatched, this film must be enjoyed, yes or yes, in the movie theater.
Be careful, at the time of publishing this review and criticism of Flash, the SMASH team did not see the post-credit scene(s), so the only recommendation is that you go see this tape as soon as possible.
