As a long-time superhero fan, "The Flash" sounded right up my alley, even if it was direct-to-video. Was it? Yes...and no. Let's start with what I liked about it: The good guys were easily likable, and the villains were equally despicable. Some scenes involving death were appropriately heart-searing. Superhero flicks always have action, and this one had some great hero/baddie fights, especially towards the end, and there was little blood and zero gore throughout. What didn't I like about "The Flash"? I could talk about the slightly excessive profanity, but the bigger problems were sexual references/innuendos and a pokey pace. Not only that, but the fact that "The Flash" is a far cry from modern-day superhero flicks will likely turn some viewers off. So, my thoughts? Older superhero fans may find this mildly enjoyable, but, everyone else should go watch "Iron Man," "Spider-Man 2," or "Batman Begins".
