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.
