Not much action, confusing and slow at first, but a good and emotional finale!
The underlying storyline is entertaining but the rest is just cheesy or bad. The dialogue can be exceedingly cheesy at times, to the point where you eyeroll or cringe. The choreography for the fight scenes range from bad to mediocre despite trying to aim for flashiness. They resemble WWE fighting rather than something like Jet Li's Fearless (2006 film) where Fearless manages to make unrealistic moments look fluid and smooth.
Then, it full on dives into PC culture, overemphasizing LGBTQ and lead female roles. Lead female roles and LGBTQ stuff is not bad, it's just bad when it feels forced. For instance, Oliver meets his son from the future for the first time in episode 4 of season 8 and out of all the things he can talk about, he HAS to mention that he is gay. It would seem fluid if there was a transition, but the lack of a transition may as well have had the son come out and say he was 'vegan'. I was like, "ok?" That's how irrelevant that piece of information was for that context. Scenes like that made it difficult to immerse myself into the moment.
The scene may as well have run like this and it would still have the same effect:
Oliver- "We're fighting this God who wants to destroy the universe"
William- "I have something to tell you..... I'm vegan, gay, and I identify as a keyboard"
Oliver- "Oh son, we always knew" /cry
That is just one example of a multitude of cringy scenes.
Despite the ups and downs of all the seasons, this series sends of the Arrow in spectacular fashion. Thank you Stephen Amell for all you hard work, it is now your time to go join Tom Welling in the Superhero series retirement.
I know I might be in the minority on this one, but I really enjoyed this season. I would interpret this season as a eulogy to all the past 7 seasons, leading up to a massive crossover (which unfortunately I was disappointed by). The crossover may not have been great, but everything leading up to it was great. All the actors were great, especially Amell and McNamara (you bought their father-daughter dynamic). Yeah, the ending was a bit anticlimactic, but at least it ended an 8-year era on a solid note. Can't wait to see what the future holds for the Arrowverse.
Uma temporada confusa, cheia de furo de roteiro e erros de continuidade. Um final triste demais pra um herói. Só ter felicidade depois da morte ? Ridículo!
I ultimately enjoyed this final season; not perfect, but not bad at all. Along the way Arrow had some really high highs, but also some really low lows. 🏹 Farewell, Green Arrow! You'll be missed.
Packed with action, nostalgia and lot's of tear jerking moments for the fans of the series, the final Season of Arrow is hands down the best Season of the entire show with each and every regular and returning actor giving their all to make for a fitting closure to such an amazing character. (10/10)
This season has been a train wreck of flash forwards and backs existing solely to create a continuance of the green arrow as an all female led pandering. There aren't any issues with the all female led sequel side of it in theory but in practise this has triggered an almost incomprehensible onslaught of bad acting/writing and convoluted story lines which barely form a cohesive story.
They have completely ignored the proper closing of this show to generate more revenue and try and create audience continuity for their future endeavours.
They're also being disingenuous with their female led shows which I find patronising towards women and far too cheerleaderish failing to focus on actual story telling for the perceived value of social awareness.
Lest you feel I'm a misogynist - let me assure you that my complaint about this show is only that they spent so much time shoehorning the creation of the pending sequel (and trying to attract woke viewers) they forgot tv has to be well written and engaging.
Well, it's finally over. The eight-year long saga of Green Arrow/Oliver Queen's quest to do right despite many, may hardships is finally at an end. Now, I can't say this is one of the best seasons. Though there is a main goal and threat in this, we get mostly stand-alone episodes and the threat is more to the side. You don't get the sense of urgency brought by a lot of other the previous main Arrow villains who were constantly in motion. But this is a good season and way to wrap-up the show.
If the last season was about tying up Oliver's story in Star City. This one is about tying things up in general. Oliver (Stephen Amell) travels the world and encounters many familiar faces. The finale is the one the show deserves and is really satisfying.
I like that Diggle's wife Lyra (Audrey Marie Anderson) gets more screentime. She's been likable but never given a lot of time to shine. Same goes to Laurel Lance/Black Siren (Katie Cassidy). She is center stage now. It is nice to see Cassidy whose character's purpose was originally very different and supposed to be the lead's romantic interest, which didn't go as planned, gets writing that fits the actress' strengths far better. Unfortunately, Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez) doesn't get as much exposure as the rest of the cast. I wished he got more of a sendoff.
If you've made it through the far, I think you'll be satisfied.
this is it, the last run of the one of the longest superhero shows on the CW and the one that jumpstarted all other superhero shows on the CW network
it's the final curtain call for Stephen Amell as the Green Arrow, hero of
the season 7 finale had Oliver finally bring his sister Emiko to her senses
wanting revenge against him and her father when they were first lost at
sea, Team Arrow finally cleared their names, the flash forwards in the
future showed what happened to the city and its downfall after Oliver died
with his daughter Mia and son William returning order and stability as well
as the original team passing the torch, and the Monitor returned to collect
Oliver to prepare for the impending crisis threatening the universe for the
Season 8 opens with Oliver arriving in another Earth with familiar faces
abound from his mother to Malcolm Merilyn, Adrian, Laurel, Tommy, Dinah,
Diggle, Rene but Thea is nowhere to be found
he's actually on a mission to collect particles for his big part in the
upcoming crisis but he must accept the inevitable fate of what may come for
the long fight ahead
Laurel from Earth-2 comes along but just barely after losing her universe
to the impending doom that lies ahead
more flashforwards in 2040 show the new Team Arrow keeping the city safe
since Felicity and the others are no longer around
another Deathstroke has taken to the streets with a bigger twist connecting
to the new team plus we get a mini reunion of two generations
the show even goes back to the place where everything began for Oliver
before officially becoming the Green Arrow, the final pages are being written from then on, everything that Oliver has ever faced has built up to this monumental showdown where all the universes fates will be decided
the final episodes wrap up the Green Arrow's journey forever handing the reigns over to the next generation of Star City's protectors; with the Crisis adverted the Green Arrow may be gone but with the universe has been restarted with the creators now changing things up for the foreseeable future
we honor the dead by fighting for the living, sometimes the mission is not
worth the cost, what we already know can either save us or destroy us, you
can't fight what's to come, escaping the past is never easy, sometimes our
children have to listen to what has to be said otherwise they can't become
heroes, saving the world is necessary so our future generations can grow up
in it, the greatest heroes are the ones that keep going, is all being a hero is just suffer and loss, we don't know what the future holds but there will always be those who need saving from heroes in any form
the story of Oliver Queen as the Green Arrow may be over but that doesn't mean his legacy will go away anytime soon, after all with his children possibly taking on the mantle more adventures of fighting bad guys may still be on the horizon
after 7 seasons and kickstarting this entire CW Arrowverse of DC television it's time for the next generation to protect its citizens from the crime-filled world
goodbye Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, Colton Haynes, Paul Blackthorne, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy, Audrey Marie Anderson, and Colton Haynes for making a very dark, gritty, grown-up, mature adaptation of the beloved comic book
Arrow may not have any powers but he's just as much a hero as any in this expansive universe that's full of endless possibilities
Farwell Green Arrow and thank you for not failing us one bit....
