Ever since his brief appearances in both “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad” fans had been clamoring to see more of Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash. They loved what they saw when he finally got to shine in “Justice League” but after Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa got their solo adventures as Wonder Woman and Aquaman respectively, people were left wondering when the red speedster would finally get his. The wait is over and “The Flash” is finally here, and while far from the best DC outing, it does fall into the upper echelon in the trove of films from DC.
Barry has always had a happy-go-lucky persona about him, however he has always carried a great sadness inside. His mother was tragically murdered when he was a kid and his father was convicted for it. Barry always knew his father was innocent, but it could never be proven. On a recent mission Barry discovers if he runs fast enough, he can go back into the past. Though he is warned by Bruce Wayne/Batman (Ben Affleck) not to meddle with time, he can’t resist. He saves his mother, but the consequences of doing so may end up dooming the planet Earth itself.
