The Quick Analysis
The Flash explores ideas of grief and closure as only a comic book movie can—time travel, multiverses, bat men, a super woman, world-ending stakes, and huge action sequences. With so much going on over nearly two and half hours, it’s easy to look past the core emotional journey. There’s a contrast between Bruce Wayne and Barry Allen. Both suffered tragic losses, but Bruce is older and has a very different perspective on it than Barry. That as awful as it was, the scars make you who you are.
When Barry ends up in 2013, he sees firsthand what this means. The 2013 version of Barry, the one who still has his parents, is almost insufferable. Careless, selfish, oblivious. The experience gap between Barry and his 2013 self is similar to Bruce and Barry. For both Barry and the audience, seeing 2013 Barry puts into context what Bruce meant about tragedy making us who we are.
This makes The Flash a movie about self-confrontation, self-forgiveness, and, ultimately, self-acceptance.
