“Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox”

BONUS MOVIE REVIEW: Monday night, I got to see another DC original animated movie entitled “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox” which, just like “Superman: Unbound”, is based off of a comic book of the same name. It stars Justin Chambers (Grey’s Anatomy, Lakeview Terrace), C. Thomas Howell (E.T., The Outsiders), Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle, Fruitvale Station), and Kevin McKidd (Brave, Kingdom of Heaven). When Barry Allan aka the Flash (Chambers) wishes that he could’ve saved his mother from her killing when he was a child, he runs super fast to go back in time and save her. But after he did this, he creates a ripple in time changing everything. In the new time, the world is corrupt by the war between Aquaman (who is actually very awesome in this movie) and Wonder Woman after Wonder Woman killed his wife in defense. The war tore apart the Eastern Hemisphere including the Amazons taking over Great Britain and heading over to the U.S. The Flash, who in this alternate universe has no powers, goes to Wayne Manor for answers, but finds out that Wayne Manor is empty and the Batman (McKidd) in this universe is willing to kill. Instead of Bruce’s parents getting killed when he was young, it was himself that was shot, making his father the Batman. He gets Batman to help him get his powers back and with the help of Cyborg (Jordan), who is now the president’s right hand man, they head over to the war zone to find Superman and to capture Zoom so that he can be able to go back in time and put things back to where they where before. I thought that this movie was better than “Superman: Unbound” and was actually a really great DC movie. I loved the story, the action, and the violence of the war was awesome (like arrows to the head and cutting off an arm). I would recommend this to any DC fan or comic fans! FINAL SCORE: 83%= Juicy Popcorn
