After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion — and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.

Grant Gustin as Dr. Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Detective West, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Rick Cosnett as Detective Eddie Thawne, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow & Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells.

Visuals were too obvious and on the nose most of the time. The shot composition could have been more ambitious, IMO. And they should have used a wider angle lense for the shots of the ocean or outdoor scenery to get a true Berman landscape. Cool idea though, and pretty original. It looks like they took mostly from Persona and Wild Strawberries.

And the camerawork was practically non-existent.
