The Flash | Ratings & Reviews

"Despite some diverting touches, Miller’s smirking, gurning, mugging doppelganger performance is a trial..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"In its best moments, The Flash touches on something new and exciting, but too often, it's the past that tugs on, keeping it from speeding ahead."


"(There are) layers and layers of storytelling knots that the film never fully untangles, but the fun is there..."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"When Andy Muschietti’s film isn’t trying to tie a big sloppy bow on the DCU, it’s an example of the franchise’s output at its best."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"A great big multiverse misadventure."

The TimesThe Times

"Muddled and uncertain of its own identity, coloured by outside circumstance, but oddly poignant at times."


"(Despite) bad FX, in-joke cameos and muddled time-travel mechanics... within its template the movie does have a peculiar, likable energy."


"While I have a few complaints... The Flash is still a funny, emotional, action-heavy crowd-pleaser that ranks among the best DC movies ever made."

Slash FilmSlash Film

"The Flash is, by far, the best movie to come out of this modern, post-Nolan Warners/DC collaboration..."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"A hodgepodge of former glories, with no clear identity of its own."

South China Morning PostSouth China Morning Post

"It goes from something I wish these movies could be more often to everything I hate about the modern state of them within the span of 10 seconds."

Austin ChronicleAustin Chronicle

"The film turns into a top-heavy noisy-busy picaresque, gathering up characters and themes along the way."


"If The Flash ultimately proves uneven... the story’s core of a young man struggling to reconcile with the loss of his mother carries it through."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"This superhero movie proves multiverses have outrun their welcome."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"A little of (Miller's) mannered delivery goes a long way, and there’s a lot of it here."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Fresh, funny, and fast – The Flash is a good time at the movies."


"The Flash is most interesting when its a character drama and not a superhero film."
