The Flashpoint Paradox

So I just saw an early viewing of Justice League : The Flashpoint Paradox and it was pretty awesome. If you’re a fan of the original graphic novel I advise you pick it up, OK yes it deviates a little from the story line but it’s a brilliant adaptation of a tale showing how the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Waking up in a world where the justice league never formed, Batman is a killer, Superman never existed, he isn’t with the love of his life and his mother is still alive, Barry Allen (The Flash) is in a literal race against time to stop the world from coming to an end at the hands of Aquaman and Wonder Women! This is a great watch, I’m finally glad to see DC do another non Batman, Non Superman film, I was getting a little bored of them.

True they use a very Japanese influenced style of animation but with the violence it blends in so well, plenty of old favorites return like Kevin Conroy and Ron Perlman plus a few new ones. This is a great watch and if you’re new to DC, it could be a nice starting off point.
