An alternative take on the vigilante world

Review of Arrow

I myself was a huge Smallville fan back in the day and I really enjoyed the episodes when Oliver Queen as the Arrow was in it. So after seeing the show end, I was really glad that they made a brand new show just for the Arrow. 

At first I was disappointed because the same guy who played the arrow from Smallville was not reenacting it. 

But, I soon became to love the acting of Stephen Amell. I think that he does a great job with his part of being Oliver Queen. I would like to see this series go on for a long time.

Story: 5

Good idea but really bad script

This is one of those shows that took a moment to find its way. The show was iffy in the beginning, obviously knew it was going to be a darker more mature tone than smallville but a bit awkwardly written, and it shows in the opening title. "my name is oliver queen. now i must save my city" people just don't speak like that. I'm also kind of mind blown as to how the CW thinks people treat billionaires, in real life there would be more people trying to ask him for handouts. Also, Olivers younger sister needs to polish her acting chops, maybe brush up her Adler method. 

By now, they've ironed out most of the kinks, namely the cheesy CW'esque predictable dialog. Anyway by season 2 most of the cast has it down and its getting exciting as they start throwing superpowers into the mix so oliver ends up more than just jason bourne with arrows. I'm at the edge of my seat for Ra's Al Ghul, who has been teased throughout the last 2 seasons and there's a lot of suspense with what they've shown you that they haven't shown you from on the island, particularly whether the entire 5 years were spent inside and what the assassins had to do with it. With the undertaking over, the eyes are on Moira to see what part she will play in the fallout of her actions. And blood... well i think he and the count have some catching up to do.

Visuals: 8

Character: 8

if Arrow is the brooding older brother, The Flash is its energetic, lighthearted younger brother

Stephen Amell is a wonderful actor for Green Arrow! I love the DC references, (Spoiler Alert) and now that Sarah is Black Canary and Slade having super-human powers, and maybe Roy too. 

Overall the show is great. Thea's character is good too, I like her development throughout the show, as well as Moira and Malcolm. The only flaw in the show is Tommy's death, I feel like it should have been written a tad bit better, and I also think it should have affected Laurel more. I really like what they are doing with Barry also, the actor for him is great, and I LOVED the scene where he became the Flash and how they foreshadowed it throughout season.

Enjoyment: 8

This show is dark it's action packed and it has very very beautiful women

When I heard about arrow I was really really worried they were just gonna put the smallville green arrow in there from where smallville left off thank god they didn't. This show is dark it's action packed and it has very very beautiful women. I love this show and don't intend to change my mind about it.

I love stupid shit. But at least I'm honest about it. Born in 1983.
