When a sabotaged experiment gives him super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive attempting to rebuild his life in Harlem and must soon confront his past and fight a battle for the heart of his city.
Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.
The visual effects are probably the only things that were interesting in this.
There was no world building. Only a quick show and some lines from a few characters tell us the basics of a have and have not society. Nothing about how and why this world exists, just that it does.
The characters were not developed. We see some glimpses and get a few lines about powers. That's also it.
And ALL of these characters are incredibly stupid. Life or death decisions are about as well thought out as when someone decides to put on a pair of slippers. Yet it's such a shock when things don't go well....seriously?
And lastly, how in the world could a Shakespearean or Greek tragedy type plot of betrayal, revolution, revenge, brother against brother, and life or death situations be less exciting than a yawn? I have to say, two hours never felt so long. And I have only myself to blame for continuing to watch as I hoped it would get better. It didn't. If this was green lighted, I know I don't need to waste my time on the rest.
