“Michael Keaton’s return where Batman would kick a** and break his foot doing it. The Caped Crusader in 1989 costume and his cars take on the classic Danny Elfman theme is breathtakingly cool. Keaton plays the character as older, wiser but just as brilliant.”
The applause continues courtesy of Deadline’s Pete Hammond, who called in the light The best superhero movie since the Marvel Multiverse likewise Spider-Man: No way home.

Meanwhile, David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter contacted the light “Uneven” but found plenty to enjoy in Barry Allen’s personal journey.
“If The Flash ultimately proves uneven, its wobbly encounters far less exciting than the character-driven build-up, it’s the story’s core of a young man struggling to come to terms with the loss of his mother that drives it through.”

Collider’s Ross Bonaimy felt similarly, and criticized it the light For her incomplete story, which was lost in a swarm of engravings.
“Cameos and fan service are good, but the story has to be there to support it, and it’s not quite there with The Flash.”
