Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (2013)

Director: Jay Oliva
Story: Geoff Johns

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (2013)
Plot: Flash, rather a powerless Barry Allen, wakes up in a dystopian world nearing apocalypsedue to the warring Atlanteans and Amazonians wrecking havoc everywhere. Most all superheroes have been affected in this altered reality. Batman exists but he is not Bruce Wayne, Superman almost doesn’t exist, Aquaman and Wonder Woman have their horns locked, though Hal Jordan is unaltered—he is cocky as ever but sans the ring.

Barry Allen must regain his lost power, figure out who the culprit is, and correct the fault in timeline.

A good onscreen adaptation of DC’s Flashpoint (by super-writer Geoff Johns), some comic-nerds might argue it’s too short at 80 odd minutes, but the length seemed alright to me, especially considering the comparatively mammoth content of the original 5-issue series. Anyways, it’s high-time DC starts catching up with Marvel in the live action field too. Otherwise, I too would have loved seeing some more time given to character development and exploring the emotional connect.
