Nice nostalgia but lacking ideas in ‘The Flash’

Nice nostalgia but lacking ideas in ‘The Flash’

The superhero film “The Flash”, with a few exceptions, received low ratings from reviewers.

GP’s Mats Johnson wrote that the film is largely identical to Back to the Future. When it works at its best, it feels wonderfully nostalgic, and when it doesn’t, it feels like an “anachronistic superhero farce.” DN’s Jacob Lundstrom wrote that DC’s blackness feels as if it’s exploded in “The Flash” and that the film is reminiscent of “a group hug with the entire hero group.” Both critics give two ratings.

Internationally, the reception has also been great. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian wrote that the film does not lack entertainment elements, but it does lack new ideas.

However, Manohla Dargis at The New York Times believes The Flash is one of the most watchable superhero films of recent times. Mashable’s Christy Butchko is more critical, saying in short that the film is bad. “Save your money.”
