Critic Reviews for Arrow Season 4

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (0)

All in all, a solid episode that did a nice job of making sure all of the cast members had something to do other than stand in the background.

With the more jovial The Flash earning rave reviews, it's no bad thing that its parent series is adopting a little of its offspring's lightness of touch. 'Green Arrow' is the same show, just with a little more colour.

Aug 2, 2018 | Full Review…

For all of its faults, Season 4 of Arrow deserves quite a bit of credit for giving audiences a proper introduction to the magical elements...However, that wasn't enough to make up for everything Season 4 did wrong.

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Arrow kicked off the DC Comics universe of TV shows on the CW network and it continues to lean toward the dark side of the genre.

Oct 6, 2016 | Full Review…

It wasn't bad, by any stretch - the moments of brilliance were surrounded by good padding - but compared to the earlier seasons, it fell a little flat.

Sep 6, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Arrow slowly but surely begins to fully embrace its superhero comic book roots. It's a welcome shift in tone for the series, and if "Green Arrow" is any indication, season four of Arrow should be a lot of fun.

Oct 14, 2015 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

This entire season has some pretty good potential. Fingers crossed they don't squander it.

Oct 9, 2015 | Full Review…

I found myself not just intrigued but somewhat excited about Arrow thanks to Green Arrow.

Oct 8, 2015 | Full Review…

A return to form for Arrow and one of the series' best episodes to date, "Green Arrow" lives up to its name and makes it clear that this is still one of the most impressive superhero shows on TV.

Oct 7, 2015 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

From the opening frame, Arrow returns with a new style that's fully formed and fully realized... hopefully for the better.

Audience Reviews for Arrow: Season 4

    The treatment of Black Canary is a disgrace the rest is great, especially the new villain.
  • Jun 20, 2020
    Overall, its a good season, but it kinda lost perspective, but there's still good stuff.
  • May 15, 2020
    Stays faithful to the comic source material but the characters has so much potential. The writing could have been sharper.
  • Feb 07, 2020
    Best season out of the first 4!
  • Jan 28, 2020
    Muita fraca pois o vilão e ruim e mal construído alem de usar muito poderes que não gosto nessa serie ela deve ser mais sensata
  • Dec 19, 2019
    Not my favorite but still a great one.
  • Nov 01, 2019
    This season fell short. The best episode in here os probably when constantine appears.
  • Oct 22, 2019
    Featuring a menacing villain played by Neal McDonough, even better action scenes, engaging and twisting plot, fabulous direction, neat script and excellent performances by Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Willa Holland, John Barrowman, Paul Blackthorne and Audrey Marie Anderson, Arrow's fourth season achieves the feat of being as good as the previous ones
  • Oct 17, 2019
    This season was okay for the most part, but very formulaic. You can pretty much count on twists and turns at the same time as last season. Decent enough villain, but the flashbacks to the island are dull. Also, what is it with villains and not knowing how to use guns in this show? I was distracted during the finale because a bunch of men with assault rifles ran forward to fight their enemies with their fists (Second time this has happened on this show). The finale itself was pretty bad. All the build up for a generic fist fight and a generic speech, then it set up no interesting threads for season 5.

    Try to renew, but not so good
