Critic reviews for Taken

For an episode seemingly built around the live-action introduction of Vixen (which rocked, by the way), "Taken" pulled no punches in regard to the major story arcs of the season.

By the end of the hour, there were literally zero secrets left to uncover on this show. Everyone's dirty laundry is now out in the open, and Team Arrow will never be the same.

All these secrets, in Arrow and in The Flash are always, time and time again, proven to be the wrong choice... It's frustrating. It creates drama, but that drama feels forced.

It builds Oliver's own internal conflict about the degree to which he feels he ought to be in William's life... Diggle, being the show's newest father advises him the most hopeful angle, giving a pretty touching monologue about the point of being a dad.

This was an incredibly boring hour of television was bookended by a couple of decent scenes with sandwich slices of others inside.

August 2, 2018 | Rating: 2.75/5 | Full Review…

The voice behind McCabe, Megalyn Echikunwoke, makes her live-action debut as the heroine. The transition isn't seamless, as the show has to saddle her with some overly explanatory dialogue to fill in those who might not have watched her animated series.
