The reviews for The Flash, the eagerly anticipated DC film, are finally out. So, does The Flash live up to the hype of being “one of the greatest superhero movies ever made” after the widely publicised accolades from people like James Gunn, Tom Cruise, and Stephen King? The Flash has a ‘Fresh’ score of 73% on the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, so the answer is, well, not exactly.

Julian Roman, a contributor to MovieWeb, started out by praising The Flash and how it provides DC fans with precisely what they’ve been waiting for.

The Flash’s return of Michael Keaton’s Batman has received a lot of hoopla, but in Julian’s opinion, it was well worth it.

The Flash, according to Deadline’s Pete Hammond, is the finest superhero film since Marvel’s equally multiverse-centric Spider-Man: No Way Home. This prompts more cheers.

David Fear of Rolling Stone said that The Flash should be praised as one of the greatest instances of the contemporary interpretation of the comic book movie.

With Joshua Yehl of IGN, things get a little bit more mediocre. He criticises the extreme amount of fan service but yet found the more personal, fundamental tale to be captivating.

Meanwhile, David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter finds The Flash “uneven” but also found a lot to like in Barry Allen’s emotional journey.

The situation worsens at this point when Variety’s Owen Gleiberman criticises The Flash for being overrun with Easter eggs and fan service.
Ross Bonaime of Collider expressed a similar sentiment, criticising The Flash for having a weak plot that gets buried in the barrage of cameos.

Molly Freeman of Screen Rant, on the other hand, was unable to look past The Flash’s contentious leading man.
But to conclude on a happier note, CBR’s Brandon Zachary praises The Flash for its blend of dramatic weight and audience-pleasing moments.

Worlds will clash in The Flash, a film directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Christina Hodson, when the superhero utilises his time-traveling abilities to alter the course of the past. However, he is imprisoned in an alternative universe after his attempt to save his family unintentionally changes the future.

The Flash will debut on June 16 and stars Ezra Miller, Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon, Ron Livingston, Maribel Verd, Kiersey Clemons, Antje Traue, and Michael Keaton.
