Review:

I waited until the second part of the pilot was aired before writing my review and that’s the only reason this is so late. Only reason. Right.

Anyway, I’ve been hyped about this since I found out Arthur Darvill was going to be in it, then I saw the trailer and my hype levels grew. I’m happy to say that the pilot delievered on everything I was hoping for. It was an epic time travel superhero TV show, with characters I’m already familiar with and enjoy.

Rip Hunter, Darvill, has pretty clichéd reasoning for doing what he’s doing but I enjoyed when he told the “Legends” why they were chosen for the mission.

I liked the look and feel of the show and loved the cheesiness. Thought the villains might be my favorite part, they’re funny and provide a new point of view.

4.5/5

Review:

So if I was ever an actress one of my goals would be to star in a Hallmark movie. That and a Law and Order episode. But I’m weird. What are the odds that Brandon Routh is weird too? I feel kind of bad for him, I thought he was a good Superman, but I haven’t watched him in a movie since then.

A fair amount of product placement going on here. They weren’t in your face about it, so that was nice. But it was still very much there. Hmmm…maybe I need to go shop at Wal-Mart.

The story was cute and not as bad as other made for TV Christmas movies. The relationship moved fast, but then who could blame her? They did kind of push the cliche being in a relationship negatives that Routh was afraid of, but I kind of see what they were going with there.

I liked this Christmas movie but probably not enough to add it to my Christmas routine.

3/5
