By far the best version of The Flash yet.

The original film was an absolute slog to watch; horrendous CGI, bad acting, a messy story.... Most of these problems were solved here, and some scenes that cringed me initially, here I loved (first in mind is the baby shower).

The audio is a total delight for the ears, the new musical additions are great, and I love every single track, with a crush for Don't Worry Be Happy, which just grew on me. But Micheal Keaton's intro is by far my favorite change concerning the audio aspect, a great example of less is more.

Visually, there are still some VFX shots that aren't working, and some instances where we feel like something was excised, even tho the cuts are seamless. But that's not a huge deal, since the movie is better off them.

No, visually, the editing is brilliant! I personally LOVE the new intro, that scene was made for Keo to be repurposed into an awesome opening credit, and the final shot of the movie, pure joygasm!

Narrative-wise, kudos, on how Keo handled the trial subplot and His smart use of VFX to take the story where He wanted it to be. His hard work really paid off, an untrained eye won't suspect a thing! Plus, a small-scale ending is far more compelling and satisfying, than whatever the hell we got originally.

If I recommend it? You bet I do!

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.

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

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! :)

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!
