The building used in the prison scene is one that is wholly inadequate for its purpose. Chief Cooper refers to the inmates as "...serial killers, hit men and the worst scum on earth...", yet there are corridors with large windows with unreinforced glass; interior scenes show as many as six occupants per cell and mixed male and female populations in the same cell block. Furthermore, Pike is able to shoot out the lock on an access tunnel with one shot. None of these conditions would be considered adequate for a prison holding the kinds of criminals the chief described. See more »

I agree with most of the comments here. This is one of the best comic book superhero films ever! Especially the pilot film, it ranks right up there with Spider-man, Batman, Darkman and Superman! It has fabulous effects, especially for a TV movie; good acting; a good storyline; funny scenes and action scenes; fine production values and above all an excellent score and theme song by the great Danny Elfman...and I think possibly his best. I also agree that CBS did not give it a chance to develop a following, which I'm sure it would have. If it had a weakness, it was the villains, who could not compare with Dr. Ock, Green Goblin, The Joker, The Penguin or Lex Luthor. The Flash is now available on DVD. Don't miss it!
