Critic Reviews for Leviathan

Legends has always worked best when it embraces its over the top superhero nature, something that hit new highs by launching into a full on robot battle.

Based on "Leviathan," I feel like the show has a pretty solid idea of how it wants to wrap up its first season, which is a good sign for what we have left. And, hopefully, it's a good sign for Season 2.

It's bad enough that every scene featuring Kendra has become related to love. Just ick. I don't believe for a split second that Sara Lance gives two hoots about whether or not Kendra thinks about Carter and their relationship.

Ultimately, this episode was a mixed bag.

Let's pause for a minute to sing the praises of Wentworth Miller. He chews scenery like its a five-course meal.

Though it's hard to argue with Sid's assertion of last week that Legends' sophomore season is going to need a more compelling villain arc than Savage's savagery, the plot propelled us into a thrilling episode that delivered on all fronts.

Solid effort tonight. I have a good feeling about the final three. I don't know why.

Legends Of Tomorrow is at its best when it goes big, and it goes really big for "Leviathan," an episode that shoots for blockbuster level spectacle and gets pretty damn close.

Giant robots make everything better. And this week, we got a giant robot on Legends of Tomorrow... But just because the titular Leviathan was a joy to watch doesn't mean that Legends of Tomorrow is firing on all cylinders.

I would cross my fingers that Savage's forces don't take over the camp, but who am I kidding? This is Legends of Tomorrow.
