Storyline

Oliver Queen and his father are lost at sea when their luxury yacht sinks, apparently in a storm. His father dies, but Oliver survives for five years on an uncharted island and eventually returns home. But he wasn't alone on the island where he learned not only how to fight and survive but also of his father's corruption and unscrupulous business dealings. He returns to civilization a changed man, determined to put things right. He disguises himself with the hood of one of his mysterious island mentors, arms himself with a bow and sets about hunting down the men and women who have corrupted his city. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[Season Two opening]
Oliver Queen: My name is Oliver Queen. After five years on a hellish island, I have come home with only one goal- to save my city. But to do that, I can't be the killer I once was. To honor my friend's memory, I must be someone else. I must be something else.

An Alternative take on the vigilante world
11 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

I just saw the first episode of Arrow. and frankly i was amazed. this Series fell right into my taste and i can't wait to see more.

This world is apparently based on an old super hero (arrow - green arrow) i cannot say i have read it buy i will most certainly consider it after seeing this pilot!

Where it separates, and distinguishes, itself from other Superhero series/movies is it is MUCH grittier and dark. Where as other superhero focuses on "merely" disarming the bad guys without hurting them overly much Arrow has no problem with killing or maiming them.

Another difference is Arrow seems to be mainly after the white collared criminals of his city rather than some "super villain" bent on world domination.

The acting, fight scenes and filming is superb! the music fits perfectly with the show. dark and gritty.

I immensely enjoyed the first episode and i can't wait for more! - 10/10
