An emotional episode that packs a surprising punch, "Crisis on Infinite Earths" sets the stage for a heartbreaking winter premiere.
I think tonight's episode, Part 3 of "Crisis on Infinite Earths," achieves that thanks to a great assist from some tear-jerking archival footage.
"Crisis On Infinite Earths" has been a faithful adaptation of its source material only in its broadest strokes. In terms of capturing the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink spirit of the enterprise, however, "Crisis" has been a resounding success so far.
At all times the series knows what the reason for these events is, it embraces the spirit of making comics, it rightly takes it to the screen and that produces pleasure. [Full review in Spanish]
Yes, the multiverse is in peril, and there are bigger problems, but can we get a round of applause for a proper West-Allen kiss? We haven't seen that much passion since The Flash Season 4, and we need it more often.
Though there are some predictable beats here and there, part three acts as a solid close to the first half of the crossover.
A loud, bombastic, cameo filled hour with heart and a noble death- add in a shocking ending to say the least and this is a fanboy(and girl's) dream.
'Crisis On Infinite Earths, Part Three' offered elements of both, pulling the trigger on the Crisis of Earth-1, all while serving as a midseason finale of sorts with an ending that will undoubtedly keep us all in suspense for the next month.
Overcrowded though Part 3 is, at least this episode manages to rectify that problem in the climax. It's certainly a fitting place to leave viewers hanging for the next few weeks.
This episode not only had to deliver 100+ episodes worth of emotional and narrative payoff, it was also the climax of the single most ambitious crossover in television history.
The writers have missed a few easy to achieve marks that haven't made the story as effective, but the crossover remains a very fun and unpredictable effort.
"Part Three" delivers some surprising moments even by crossover standards.
