Film Review : The Flash
The Flash is DC Super Hero's first-ever stand alone feature film.
Worlds collide in "The Flash" when Barry Allen uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events ofthe past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to.
That is, unless Barry can convince a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian, not exactly the one he's looking for.
Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry's only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?
In the midst of all the mind boggling action scenes ( falling buildings, time travel , Batman .. the list goes on!) there is inherent wit and humor as well as a storyline with family sentiment at its core. Though the action is fast paced, there is ample time given to the viewer to let emotions and awe-inspiring moments sink in.
Whistle worthy scenes, an engaging story line and a racy narrative, coupled with solid performances abd twists aplenty, make The Flash a rivetting watch.
