Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
Black Lightning follows Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams), a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, and those he cares about in the crosshairs of the menacing local gang The One Hundred, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.
Own on Blu-ray and DVD 6/26
I admit that I had never even heard of Black Lightning before this tv show even aired but it is a something that my husband and I would watch.
We started watching the first episode on Friday and we were so hooked that we watched the first half of the show on Friday and if it weren't for the fact that we had a busy weekend we would have watched the rest on Saturday.
Anyway, this show was so good. It is action packed with great story, great acting and awesome effects.
The season finale was ok but I was hoping for more.
All in all I did enjoy the show.
I am giving this a 4 out of 5.
