Filmz.ru: The article 01.08.2018 at 20:57

Information-analytical on-line magazine about cinema news, reviews, analysis of domestic and foreign cinema business.

"My wallet was lost, and the Bank account is empty, says Oliver Queen. - My house destroyed and reputation tarnished. I'm a nobody". As to that state fell and how they are going to get out of it?..

the Green Arrow notes that "in the Seattle police Department opened seventeen cases of missing persons. All the women and children. All of the lower classes, many of the homeless". Search events lead him to a criminal group of so-called "Scorched", the Bank-battleship "Inferno" and the powerful and ominous "the Ninth circle".

I could ask for support from the Justice League, but they already look down on me, and after that my request will cease to trust me. So this time I'm by myself.

the First book by Benjamin Percy the Green Arrow, created in Alliance with artists Otto Schmidt and Juan Ferreyra, is allocated three of its features.

first, there is a much more tangible the relationship of the two recognizable images - Oliver Queen and Bruce Wayne. Oliver, as you know, too "secular lion and a playboy", the President of a large company, to put it simply - the rich man. But unlike Batman, his superhero efforts are as people and colleagues only relative success. By overspending (and to spend not only on charity but also on bribery), he has a reputation among the members of the Justice League "bigot and an asshole", not knowing that "it is impossible to cover the problem with a wad of dollars, as if fairy dust and hope for the best."

You play a hero who defends ordinary people from the streets, and then go home, bathe in champagne and sleeping on a mattress full of money.

second, there is sharper manifest his feelings (mutual) Black Canary ("And there is something there... Something that makes me feel a pleasant helplessness"). It becomes the "voice of conscience" that first face he makes all the doubts in the correctness of his actions ("Right and left preach morality, complaining about the elitism, racism, nepotism, conservatism, Yes to any available ISM - isms"), and she, understanding what was going on, gives the hero the most colorful feature:

anyone who has been with Olli for more than five minutes, can confirm that in his chest beat a heart full of compassion and love for people. Oliver was a defiantly honest - too honest to be a liar and a hypocrite.

thirdly, it is remarkable (though by far not new) the image of the enemy: it's the fat cats who created the underground Bank, where the accumulated "savings, loans, and investments for criminal clientele" and managed accounts "as terrorists, and the President's of companies." Their "floating storage" - "Out of bounds. Outside the laws. The most that neither is an offshore account" - are based in international waters, and they are literally in control of the situation on the planet, acting, for example, strongly opposed the settlement of the conflict in the middle East ("When work on the war, the world is your enemy").

the Bad guys make trouble, but only the really bad guys bring these troubles in life. You're probably not surprised, but who they is really the bad guys? Bankers, of course. The ninth circle is a Bank.

Add to that a couple of important points. Not everyone has a graphic novel allows itself to direct quotes from "the divine Comedy" and characters with names Virgil and Dante. And with a nod to the classics - the most that neither is actual signs of the day: "This channel is protected by twenty VPN nodes", "We only accept payment lexline".

and so it turns out that this is a very interesting book - not even taking into account how vivid and expressive it is drawn. One image seemed to be sawn in half cruiser with a stretch of stormy sky towers is worth something!..

it Seems that I have no past, no future. Just horrific and senseless now.
