Critic Reviews for Vendetta

Not only did [Oliver and Helena's] chemistry feel a lot more organic, but their emotional attachment made more sense too.

It's only taken eight episodes for Arrow to fully embrace its comic book influences and, even better, to have the confidence to weave them into a larger, more complex story.

Jul 19, 2018 | Rating: A | Full Review…

"Vendetta" whiffs it pretty hard by letting the ethics of the question at hand become secondary to the childish behaviour of those doing the decision making.

Jul 30, 2018 | Full Review…

"Vendetta" focused on this budding romance, as well as the differences between Oliver and Helena, aka The Huntress.

Jul 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Even when "Vendetta" tries to trade in some darker musings on the nature of justice it's scuppered by some equally clunky expositional dialogue.

Jul 25, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

While Oliver continues to grow, the show seems to as well. For the second week, Arrow hasn't flashed back to the island and it didn't seem like a big deal; in fact, the episode felt more cohesive in many ways.

Not all of the performances or logic of "Vendetta" fire on all cylinders, but the show continues accomplishing what no superhero TV series has before by keeping both its characters and action grounded.

Sadly, "Vendetta" was a fairly disappointing episode of Arrow despite...all the hype surrounding Huntress' debut.

Jul 24, 2018 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

There's love and bullets in the air in this week's Arrow.

Jul 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

"Vendetta," the conclusion of Arrow's two-part Huntress story arc, gives us Helena in full costume, new developments with Tommy Merlyn...and some Triad/mob action.
