Critic reviews for Monument Point
Arrow's stakes have never been higher, and this week's episode, "Monument Point," certainly made that clear.
Still, there was a sense of urgency to finding Noah before the bad guys got him. While I thought the fight scene at the cabin was pretty awesome, it seemed rather sloppy for Oliver and Diggle to let Brick go.
"Monument Point" clicks on all cylinders. The stakes have never been higher, the "original team" has never been more united, and oh, yes, the special guests have never made more sense.
All your favorite villains from the past two seasons are back... Great move to bring all these guys back as part of Darhk's gang, and was handled with enough subtlety to really make it just feel like a believable part of this living, breathing universe.
If there's going to be a lot of treading water... then filling that time with several well-crafted action sequences isn't necessarily a bad thing.
