Synopsis:
Bad Movies Made Less Bad Presents:
Lessons Learned the Hard Way.
Intention:
I watched The Flash in theaters with high hopes. And in the end, I didn't have any major problem with characters, just the terrible GGI and the fact that Barry didn't actually learn the lesson in the end. I've been slowly carving into this stone block for a while now, but I felt any editing that I did was mostly superficial and down to a matter of taste unless the elephant in the room was addressed IMO - the fact that Barry still tries to fix the past by moving the tomatoes. I have finally found a way to remedy that.

I was able to remove the arrival of the flash drive package in the beginning of the movie and have Barry just be in an overall hopeless place, ruminating that he is still unable to save his father, even after now working in forensics as he hoped. And if we change the text on the note from Bruce, we can surprise Barry at home when he comes back to the future, for a proper happy ending.

Another movie made less bad. Still not great, but infinitely better.

Technically, Keo is an excellent craftsman and his achievements throughout this project are impressive. But in his quest to remove certain lines of dialogue or to change the context of some moments, the inner pacing/rhythm of those scenes or moments occasionally feel off a bit to me. Examples of this would be the Lasso of Truth scene or the two Barry's and Underwear scene. While the original versions may be cringe inducing or overly ridiculous, they have a narrative beat, that once removed, the scenes play slightly more awkward.

All the cuts vastly improve the pacing and individual character beats. Some cuts are more subjective than others. Personally, I loved the original version of all the cameos, so I was disheartened by the truncated version.

The new music additions are great, the audio levels are nicely balanced and serve the narrative emotion very well. Though I thought maybe they could have used a bit more underlying ambience. Particularly with the new ending, as I thought the background ambience dropped out far too sudden before Barry super speeds offscreen.

But wow! What a fun and satisfying new ending. Barry learns his lesson, thus becoming a genuine hero and the custom end credits are exceptionally charming.

On the whole, a remarkable improvement and very entertaining.
Thumbs Up! :)

I have watched this edit too many times now. The Flash is a movie I love by itself, but there are gripes I had. The movie was too comical for me, and felt more like a Flash/Supergirl/Batman movie. Not a Flash movie, when it is a FLASH movie it shines.
Wakeupkeo fixes alot of those gripes. Look the tone and removing some cameos. I feel this is the best way to watch this edit.
The fun ending also felt relieving in the best way possible.
Love your edits so much. Sincerely,
One of your biggest supporters,
Juggy

An incredible edit that was able to save the movie for me. While this movie will never be perfect in my eyes this is probably one of the closest it will come to making the movie enjoyable.
If you read my other reviews of Wakeupkeo you know I am a big fan of his DCEU edits. This one is no exception and it did a far better job honoring and concluding the dceu before the James Gunn reboot happens.
Much like his other edits everything is tighter here, this one in particular since it was pretty much WB throwing in the towel and straight up trying to make a marvel movie, humor and all. Now this is the Flash so a more comical tone is fine but a lot of the jokes didn't land and were weird. (baby microwave 'ding') Coupled with a lot of serious scenes about ending the multiverse and you have a movie that is pretty inconsistent. Keo worked his magic and everything is much better paced, and just the right amount of humor and serious think Iron man.
There were a lot of small changes that could go flying by but improve the movie like Keaton's Bat theme playing in his fights, removing unnecessary dialogue, and skipping over the awful cgi at the end was the right call.
If I have to nitpick seeing the flash steal food still annoys me he is supposed to be a HERO! There was the odd break in continuity: the microwave randomly appearing on the stretcher, Super Girl carrying him over to a more uncomfortable place to lay down ect. I understand that these are unavoidable otherwise certain scenes wouldn't have made sense.
The biggest and best change has to be the ending change, the "saying goodbye" hit much better I actually got emotional, changing the ending so he doesn't undue his arc of learning to let go by rearranging the soup so his dad looks up and having Bruce redo the security footage was the happy ending the movie needed, rather than him getting stuck in the George Clooney Batman and Robin universe for a cheap joke dumping on the character and his struggle.
The ending credits Wakeupkeo did actually made me smile and showed far more love and respect for DC than WB's execs ever did it was a far more fitting conclusion to the last DCEU film before the reboot. Well done a big recommendation from me.

An incredible edit of The Flash! Very seamless, and the tone was very consistent and had a much better balance between humor beats and serious notes, the narrative was much more solid and sensible and the "Saying Goodbye" segment at the end hit much harder than the original, I nearly cried! 10/10!

Evita sofrimento de certas cenas que realmente não eram necessárias, como as piadas com a Mulher Maravilha envolvendo o Batman e o Flash e os cortes feitos na cena de ação do resgate dos bebês fazem bem para o filme. No final, o resultado desse corte enxuga muito dos excessos do filme original, o que acaba deixando o mesmo mais prazeroso de ser assistido.

As a massive flash fan, i enjoyed the original. but there were things i wanted to take out. being in the process of making my own edit i checked out FOTW. this is a very well done edit. cuts are seamless, the opening title sequence is spot on. i would've liked if more of the barry2 annoying stuff was taken out but that's me. music choices were far better than the original.

Overall a very well put together fanedit made by one of the best out there. ive seen the rest of their dceu lineup and this one is right up there with them. Great watch! keep up the good work
