Episode director Dermott Downs and The Flash's special-effects team do have fun constructing the fight. They're aiming for something epic, full of lens flares and slow motion.
The Flash's battle against Solivar pushes the show's special effects budget to the limits. That being said, it doesn't make the fight any less entertaining.
The episode has enough going for it that it's easy to forgive some of the visual shortcomings.
Even when the show teased a Gorilla City-centric episode last season, part of me doubted it would ever come to fruition.
The effects work on the gorillas was impressive and used sparingly. Plus, it never hurts to fall back on old tricks, like keeping your digital gorillas in shadow.
When Flash tackles a "big" episode, it's typically knocked out of the park. Happy to report this one was no exception.
Barry's continued delusions about changing the future somewhat taints his romance with Iris. They are absolutely adorable together.
