Critic Reviews for Brotherhood

While the things that Oliver says in his first rally at Star City Bay appear corny out of context, the character has been well built to this moment in the episode, and the season, thus far.

This was a classic Arrow episode filled with some good action, drama and DEM BOWS.

How amazing was that one-shot, long fight sequence with Thea and Andy? Totally reminiscent of Daredevil's one-shot hallway fight sequence. Just beautifully choreographed and shot.

This episode delivered a flurry of fierce fights as well as some weighty character moments.

"Brotherhood" was a really interesting hour. Not only was Diggle trying to brush off any feelings of concern for his brother Andy, while Oliver dealt with his desires to bring down Damien Darhk, but Ray Palmer was being introspective.

Felicity and Ray's friendship is so awesome. If only we could all get along so well with our exes.

Legitimizes the Oliver-as-mayor storyline and turns it into something that has its own distinct heartbeat and is able to sustain itself regardless its affiliation with the season's A-plot.

Strong directors can't help some of the storytelling issues still plaguing Arrow, but tonight's stunt-heavy hour was definitely a bold swing, and a series high for action at that, without losing its emotional anchor in Diggle.

Between a more streamlined plot progression and some of the most dynamic battle scenes in the show's history, it's an hour that takes full advantage of every minute.

The stuntwork is playful and fluid in a way I haven't seen in previous episodes.
