This is the thirteenth movie in the DCEU, and it is one of my favourites. I will admit that the written character of eighteen-year-old Barry Allen was just awful. I was eighteen once, and I know I was not acting like a five-year-old. Remove that aspect of the movie, then add the cameos and the Super Girl and my favourite Batman, Michael Keaton, I was in a joyride which just seemed too good to end.

I like the idea of how they plan to make this movie a form of soft reboot to the DCEU movie world and stand as the reason for the now DCU movie world that is being run by James Gunn.

You can feel it in the first minutes that many hands worked on this script from the way the movie moved up and down, but the moment they introduced a third wheel into the mix, Michael Keaton’s Batman, the movie stabilized, and it was all fun from there on.

The plot is about Barry wanting to save his mother. In the comics, this created the flashpoint, and this movie plans to do the same. Barry saw that he could go back in time if he ran fast enough and decided to make a little change in what led to his father going to the shops and coming home to see his mother murdered. After he made that change, someone in the speed force pushed him out of the speed force on the day he got his powers.

He was now in the past and decides to go see his mother and father and ran into his eighteen-year-old self. After a long time convincing his eighteen-year-old self of what has happened, he was also able to convince him to get struck by lightning so that he can get his powers. The repercussion was he now losing his powers.

Now he is trapped in the past, and then the news hit with the presence of Zod coming to earth to destroy it. Now Barry and Barry went to look for Bruce Wayne (Batman) to help solve this huge problem, Barry seems to have caused a lot of changes to the world by changing the past. His Batman (Ben Affleck) was not the same as the Batman he is now seeing (Keaton). Also, it seems that this Batman has not heard of Superman, the one-person Barry knows can stop Zod.

Now they need to find Superman and hope that they all can come together to save earth and Barry can get back to trying to understand the damage he has caused and how he can fix it.

I really enjoyed this movie the moment things started to line up straight, and I do hope the new DCU, which springs from this, makes more sense and is more fun than the other movies before this one.
