Critic reviews for State v. Queen

Despite being a bumpy, table-setting entry in what has otherwise been a fantastic second season of Arrow, the episode was bolstered by the shocking events of its final act.

All in all, an exceptionally uneven hour that was mostly righted by its final act...with plenty of stirred and shocking developments for the future.

At first blush, this courtroom drama looks to be the centerpiece of the episode. Instead, in true Arrow fashion, it serves as merely the catalyst for the revelation of some much deeper, darker truths.

Everyone put on your serious faces - it's time for a murder trial!

Bad acting and "copycat Joker" writing make [Count Vertigo] the lamest entry in Ollie's rogues gallery. Luckily, the other elements in this episode were much stronger, so the end result was still pretty enjoyable.

A shame then that 'State vs. Queen' falls back on those same old Nolan-esque tropes, with one sequence...ripped directly from 2008's The Dark Knight.
