Critic reviews for League of Assassins

Precious few complaints to be found tonight...leaving 'Arrow' and the "League of Assassins" on continually strong footing.

August 3, 2018 | Full Review…

"League of Assassins" works mostly as a vehicle of exposition, establishing a large, nefarious organization that will no doubt have a major role in future installments.

August 2, 2018 | Rating: 8.1/10 | Full Review…

Overall, another great episode.

Arrow is really on a hot streak right now. The addition of Black Canary and the League of Assassins to the mix have done wonders for the overall tone and direction of the show.

A bridging installment then, but a solid one.

August 1, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

While "League of Assassins" didn't skimp on the action (we'll get to that in a minute), it felt like a step backward in several other departments.
