Critic Reviews for Gorilla Warfare

If my hopes aren't higher than they've ever been, even DC's most outrageous environments will soon come to life on screen.

By the end of the episode I was rooting for the big fella, even though he did some pretty awful things. And I'm also back rooting for The Flash.

Pretty much any episode was going to be a letdown after last week's impressive showing. "Gorilla Warfare" helped mitigate that problem by bringing Grodd back into play.

I really hope that the next time we see Grodd, he's fully come into his own as a leader of his people, an enemy to humans, and a nemesis to The Flash.

With The Flash temporarily sidelined, Wells chooses a lousy time to announce that he's heading back to Earth-Two, to take care of Zoom once and for all.

I like when Barry loses his speed. It forces him to dig deep and rely on other tools to be a hero rather than just the speed force. Barry's ascension to hero in the eyes of Central City was reasonably unfettered.

It doesn't take a village to get Barry back on his feet, but it does take a telekinetic monkey.

There aren't any truly deep story threads running and keeping it interesting. I'm tuning in because I love the characters, not because I want to know what happens next. I'd rather a bit more of the latter.

Jul 27, 2018 | Rating: 3.7/5 | Full Review…

Despite difficult circumstances that come with bringing a far-fetched character to life, the show not only forewent caution and embraced its comic book roots, but did so in compelling fashion.

Like Caitlin, I empathize with Grodd. He may be a murderous, superpowered gorilla, but he can feel unloved just like the rest of us.

Although Barry's recovered with astounding speed from an injury that would have permanently paralyzed a normal person, he hasn't mentally recovered from his battle with Zoom.

If Gorilla Warfare is considered a step down, well, holy moley, I don't even know if I can process what The Flash is really capable of this season. It's a lot, though.
