Movie of the Week
Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian.
Critics Consensus: We’re all feeling a bit multi-versed out right now in the wake of Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse. But The Flash still speeds along nicely – no mean feat when it’s 2 hours 25min long.
