Crop And Save
Another comic book hero poorly rendered on television
The writing for this series is beyond simplistic, and is heavy handed- which coincidentally aligns perfectly with the amateurish direction and phenomenally bad acting. David Ramsey puts in the best performances, which should speak volumes about the stink quality of the other actors. The CGI quality is laughable- video games have better effects for Pete's sake. The editing of the fight sequences at times look as if a live actor is fighting a blue screen and the foes are edited in later, and rather poorly at that. Then it looks as if frames are removed to make the action appear faster; The result is the "Arrow" is fighting a bit out of phase with the other combatants, and the action looks choppy as well. Two episodes in, and I can't imagine this hopeless dreck surviving a complete season- even on a two-bit channel like the CW.
Poorly written with scripts that are at best,improbable.The story ideas aren't bad,but they are poorly written.The dialog is I'm guessing,supposed to be urgent and tense,but is merely rushed.There is little empathy between the characters and no cohesion in the unit.It's like every time they show up to work they're meeting each other for the first time.The acting is dismal-even Forest Whitaker turns in marred performances.The premise of the show has promise,yet the writers and the director(s?) churn out a very flawed product.I am surprised that this show has not been canceled yet.I will be further surprised if it's picked up for a second season without drastic changes in front of,and behind the camera.
