The Blaze Takes Off Above Past Dceu Movies

August 30, 2023

Story: It’s been a few years since the Justice League got together and saved the earth from mother boxes, the Steppe Wolf and confusing storytelling. So now that Barry Allen/The Flash has time to think about things? He thinks it would be a fantastic idea to use his speed power to go back in time in order to save his mother’s life. What could possibly go wrong? Uh, has he seen any time travel movies? Hijinks Keyword!

Genre in which I would classify it: serial separation, which are the best of all

Release date: 2023

Remake, sequel, based on or Original: based on DC Comics characters. Part of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU).

I must say: I had a hard time watching Flash. With the accusations against Miller, I was worried that I would be part of the attempt to cover up these incidents. But with Miller who seems to be getting help for his problems? I thought if he was willing to try, I was willing to risk things. And Flash is without a doubt the best film the DCEU has released to date, and a great way to define a period on what I think is the Snyder-verse Phase. Yes, it has some problems, but overall, Flash seems to know exactly what Fans and casual moviegoers want and is giving it to them.

Flash is an interesting breed that oscillates between full Action and sincere moments of character. This back and forth is probably due to the writers Christina Hodson and Joby Harold, who have very different narrative styles. Hodson has cleverly written wacky movies like Bumblebee and Birds of Prey, where Harold is more of a gonad actor like Army of the Dead. Director Andy Muschietti merges these two styles, giving viewers moments to breathe between the Slam-Bang sequences. And honey, if it’s Action, will you? You will definitely get it. Because even this Film gives in with both hands. The action choreography is there, the blocking allows you to see exactly what is happening and with whom, and hey-are these medium to wide that allow us to see everything? Yes. Yes, they are. Thank the gods of battle for this.

The story is simple; fix the Oops. But I think I can safely say, without omitting the spoilers that you haven’t seen in the trailers yet, that Barry is going to work things out with all the other characters from different places, which makes the story interesting. It gets a little slow in the moments of exposure, such as when Barry interacts with his family (although Ron Livingston and Maribel Verdú are really charming as Barry’s parents). But what is the general theme of the film that you allow yourself to let your past be the past? I will allow it. In addition, I think DC Comics Fans will appreciate those moments when the characters simply interact without jokes and don’t really have an Agenda, other than letting the viewers feel the connection between them. But put a pin in the fan thing, we’ll get to that right away.

The Cast? Like Livingston and Verdú, they all dig. Ezra Miller’s Barry is the DCEU’s Garfield: constantly hungry, a little upset and strangely endearing even with his quirks. And boy, oh boy, Miller chooses these oddities. I thought Barry was autistic and/or had ADHD, with the way Miller uses Tics, poor eye contact, repetitive movements and other indicators to bring Barry to life. It’s a bold move, because Miller really crosses the line between sincerity and Parody, but rolls things up just enough to make Barry act like a self-contained entity rather than just another cookie-cutter superhero. That said, I would like Barry and Shazam/Billy Batson to interact. Barry’s discomfort in his own skin, and Billy comes in and out of his own? It could be comedy gold if these two got together. James Gunn, this is my pitiful request for you. Puuuuuleze?

This movie is absolutely filled with characters, so many are far from glorified and glorious cameos, so he would have us here forever, and none of us want that. However, some stand out. Sasha Calle does a great job as a Supergirl, giving us a glimpse of what it would have been like if a certain Kryptonian hadn’t ended up in a cornfield. Michael Keaton is absolute perfection as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Even if the dialogue gets a little silly, it makes you believe this mess and hits you deep in your soul. Damn it, it’s not a scream. This is a sincere thanks to the man for the best performance in a 21st century DC movie I’ve ever seen. The guy deserves his Oscar. Well; he’s still hot. What about Ezra Miller’s back-and-forth as Barry and Barry? Is so transparent that I began to forget that I was being put in a parental trap. Yes, my friend is problematic. But damn if he doesn’t have talent. Make your own “fine line between madness and genius” comment here.

At almost two and a half hours, this movie is definitely suffering from bloating. Maybe a few of those dragging scenes I mentioned earlier could have been sharper if the edges had been reasonably cropped. But all in all, Flash gives us a big explosive summer blockbuster that gives you more than almost three hours (trailers and commercials, my love) in the air conditioning. It gives you hope that future DC movies could be a good thing. James Gunn Again? Puuuuuleze?
