Critic Reviews for Suicide Squad

As for this episode, the Suicide Squad was a bit of a letdown. I hope the show is able to do more with Deadshot and perhaps Bronze Tiger in the future, but this first foray into an important part of the DC mythology fell flat.

"Suicide Squad" is an important reminder of why Team Arrow needs Diggle, and it doesn't just make that point by showing how capable he is in the field.

I rather enjoyed "Suicide Squad." It was a very low-key episode for Arrow, not too busy at all, with only two plots to its name.

Overall, the action itself proved a bit ineffective...though the "Suicide Squad"s intrinsic patchwork more than covered for a few shaky bits.

As a whole "Suicide Squad" highlights what Arrow does best-fun, yet pathos-heavy action, playful banter and giving great character beats to its ever-growing roster of colorful characters.

Regardless, it was a great vehicle for Diggle, once again proving how underutilized Ollie's right-hand-man is on this show.

Serving as a buffer between the previous episode's dramatics...'Suicide Squad' is ultimately something of a filler episode, but that shouldn't be taken to mean that it's not worth your time.

"Suicide Squad" is more than just one of the best episodes Arrow has ever done, it's roughly as effective at introducing a rather continuity-heavy DC Comics concept as..."The Scientist."

As tightly plotted and paced as this show normally is, this episode was friggin' exhausting!
