Star power aids thriller

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE WEEKEND TICKET - Miss Sloane (15) ●●●●● Ar­row Sea­son 5 (15) ●●●●● Ti­tle rat­ing

As strong a per­for­mance as Jes­sica Chas­tain sup­plies here, she’s saddled with a char­ac­ter that’s very hard to root for.

The star’s pres­ence is cru­cial, though, as ev­ery­one else comes and goes with­out adding much.

A sharp script keeps things in­ter­est­ing and you’ll be un­sure where it’s all headed right un­til the end. A wel­come re­turn to form for the emerald archer in the DC show’s best sea­son since its sec­ond run.

The su­per­nat­u­ral mumbo jumbo largely takes a wel­come back seat to a more grounded, re­venge-fu­elled se­ries arc. There’s less em­pha­sis on grat­ing ro­man­tic el­e­ments too and the writ­ers ca­pa­bly jug­gle a colos­sal cast list.
