Only about CGI doubles

Cast: Ezra Miller, Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon, Ron Livingston, Maribel Verdú, Kiersey Clemons, Michael Keaton, Ben Affleck, Ian Loah, Jeremy Irons, 

Rating: 2.5/5


Helmed by Andy Muschietti, The Flash is a film full of average CGI and bad performances. The Flash starts off with Barry Allen aka The Flash buying coffee and in the 3 minutes it takes the guy to make coffee, The Flash saves the city. In these first few moments of the movie, all that is apparent is bad CGI doubles and a bad sense of humour.

Chaos ensues when the Flash uses his superpowers to travel back in time to change the events of the past. Unfortunately, his attempts to save his family alter the future and he gets trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening them with annihilation. As a last resort, with no other superheroes around, the Flash tried to coax Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian.

Andy Muschietti’s direction isn’t as good as it was in IT Chapter One, and his vision for this film seems to be all over the place as if he was overwhelmed with the budget and tried to do everything he could. Michael Keaton was absolutely wasted in his cameo while Ben Affleck looks old and tired in the few scenes allotted to him.

Other negatives are Ezra Miller’s criminal record which may put off some viewers while the poster of Lord Hanuman in Barry’s apartment is a pretty weird detail to add to a superhero movie.

Not an impressive outing, but die-hard fans will find something to love in The Flash.
