Critic Reviews for Streets of Fire

There was a lot of action in this episode and it was a fun hour. I am somewhat disappointed that Blood died so quickly.

In its own weird way, "Streets Of Fire" is a character piece, an attempt to portray both the chaos that engulfs Starling City and how its citizens respond to it.

I commend the writers all the time, but I've gotta call them on this one. I don't see any way that Slade lets the one thing that could take him and his army down out of his sight.

"Streets Of Fire" begins with its boot heel stamped on the accelerator pedal and barely relents for its entire duration.

I don't know that I've ever felt like Starling City is a place. What we see of it is so often alleyways, warehouses, scaffolding, and plastic tarps.. we don't have a great sense of the city as a whole

A few stumbles here and there in the emotional beats, but by this point "Streets of Fire" continues to cement 'Arrow' season 2 as all but untouchable.

["Streets of Fire"] gave us danger and stakes galore, but was more concerned with setting up the big finale than necessarily resolving most of the conflicts.

Aug 2, 2018 | Rating: 8.9/10 | Full Review…

The breathless 'Streets of Fire' throws you into the action headfirst, with fists and bullets flying from the off.

These are the weighty issues that "Streets of Fire" attempt to tackle, all while delivering hefty doses of action in every other scene.

If last week's episode of The CW's Arrow felt like the first part of a much longer finale, then tonight's episode was surely that same finale's middle act.
