"Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox" is a revelation. An all-too-rare gem of a film that goes to places with classic comic book superheroes you can't imagine any group of filmmakers would dare. It's one thing to read and see a story like this on the page. It's an entirely different thing to experience it on a visceral level as a motion picture.

Based upon the DC comics storyline "Flashpoint" by Geoff Johns, "The Flashpoint Paradox" is - at heart - an emotional, introspective journey centered on one of DC's lesser-known heroes, Barry Allen aka the Flash.

Screenwriter Jim Krieg skillfully manages to adapt most of Johns' main storyline while adding an original prologue that emotionally anchors the film in Barry Allen's tragic childhood loss of his mother, and the guilt he carries into his adult life in not having saved her life. Krieg has also scripted a smart, humorous and sophisticated opening action sequence involving the main Justice League characters. Like most great screenwriters, Krieg knows if you're going to deconstruct the most famous DC superheroes throughout your script, showing them as brutal vigilantes and ruthless killers for the balance the film, you better first give them all a moment to shine at their heroic best.

This is a time-travel story into an alternative universe, and following these opening scenes, Barry Allen awakes from dozing-off at his workstation to find a world inverted. DC's most enduring heroes are now the most violent, out-of-control threat the planet has ever faced.

Bruce Wayne was killed, not his parents. His father Thomas Wayne is the Batman, an alcoholic consumed by loss who dispatches his victims with a gun in each hand or a toss off a rooftop.

It's certainly the most violent DC animated film out there, but that's not to say that the story lacks in quality either! The animation is spectacular and the voice actors are all spot on. This was entertaining enough that my dad (who doesnt normally bother with animated stuff) sat through it and declared it as being 'dam good' come the credit roll! If the future DC animated movies are of this standard and quality then I and many others are gonna be very very happy indeed :-D

I think this is the best movie DC has made to date. The animation is great, actually I think it is more anime that animation. If you have read the comic you already know the story. The film takes the brutality to a new level. Honestly if you though Wonder Woman [DVD] [2009] [1975] was brutal this one it its older brother. I would not recommend this for kids under 12 possible 15 even.

After his latest battle with the rouges and Professor Zoom, the Flash wakes up in a world where everything has changed. His friends and the world greatest heroes have declared war on each other. They have no problem destroying the world to see each other dead, and anyone who happens to be in their way. The main thing about this movie and the comic it is not set in another timeline or in another Earth, something has changed the timeline moving everything over slightly. I read some of the negative reviews , I have to say the explanation is a bit weak but it is time travel , not theoretical physics. I does not take away from the fact that the other 89 mins of the film is great.

I said in the comic I loved the Flash and Batman team up, I would like to see more of that with the "real" Batman. Batman seem to have a sort of big brother relationship with the Flash, sort of like he has a father to the Robins. It is really cool that Flash is the fastest man alive but Batman is mentally 3 steps ahead of him, then Flash with do something that is so unpredictable that even Batman would not be able to think of it. I hope to see more of these team ups not just the big 3.

When the Flash cranks up the superspeed and travels back in time to right a painful wrong, the timeline is drastically altered and he awakes in a present that's not the one he knows. There's a war raging between the Atlanteans and Amazons, Batman uses guns, Cyborg works for the government and Superman is nowhere to be found. Worse, the Flash no longer has his superpowers thus cannot travel back in time to repair the damage and restore the timeline to the one he knew.

Powerless and with no Justice League to turn to, the Flash must decide how he's going to change the course of history and if he's willing to lose someone he loves in the effort to save the lives of many.

This flick is the ultimate fanboy trip for Flash lovers. He's the main character and this is the first time in DC animated movie history that he gets the focus. You got superspeed, time travel, alternate timelines, the Speedforce and more. Way cool and, frankly, it's about time DC took a break from Superman and Batman as the go-to guys for movies, even in the context of a JLA movie. With a new Flash TV series in production as of this review, I'm thinking this was DC's way of priming the pump, so to speak, to get audiences ready for more adventures with the Scarlet Speedster.

This movie's strength lies in two areas: the Flash, and time travel.

On the Flash: you got a quick recap of his origin, a real sense for what drives Barry Allen, multiple amazing displays of superspeed (especially that running sequence at the end), and a hero to root for from start to finish. I loved it. As a DC guy, I like the Flash, but this film really made me appreciate him and care for him all the more as it gave a strong face to his mythology and character.

On time travel: I love time travel stories.
