This review is from: Dcu: Justice League - The Flashpoint Paradox [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
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]   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.
A great movie, if you read the comic you will not be disappointed, if you like the Justice League it is great to see the evolution of the characters in this characters are older, simply as it is more a more mature audience. Be prepared for the brutally and in some cases cold blooded murder, you would never belive the "heroes" are capable of. It proves there is a thin line between heroes and villains.
