Back before the superhero invasion we were given this semi gritty realistic take to the man in red, and boy did they take it seriously!. Although there had been a few serious Marvel flicks before this, this was the first 'Batman-like' film to come along before the enormous Nolan ...

Shocking considering all who were involved. Affleck is good mates with Kevin Smith, why didn't he ask him for advice? I really hope this hasn't killed off Daredevil though as the Comics are really good! The Elektra spin off just adds insult.

Altho referred to by some kinder folks as a poor man's Spider-Man, its clearer to say that ol' DD was originally intended as a direct reflection of Batman ... and has never left that admittedly very large shadow. The film tries, as the magazines did, but no. I added a star for ...

One of Marvel's earlier and much more clumsy attempts of establishing their super heroes in the movie world. There are some great ideas in this, particularly the visualization of Daredevil's senses. The soundtrack is pretty cool too. Things already start to get messy with the cas...

Given the source material, I'm always surprised when these movies don't turn out good. This rendition of Daredevil is worthless. It feels less like a superhero movie, and more like a backdrop for the intolerable Nu-metal that was wiping it's rectum all over the music industry a...

This is my 2nd favorite comic book movie, mainly because I can't find anything bad to say about it. I don't care what other people say about it, it rocks.
First, let's begin with the cast. I loved Ben Affleck's subtleness as Matt Murdock, and you can tell he's had experience w...

I am surprised by the low reviews, it actually was an okay superhero film. The plot was a tale of revenge, which i actually really got into and the start of the movie makes it feel like this will be an intense story, and sure enough, it was pretty good. Ben Afflek and Jennifer ...

The movie itself wasn't a slobberknocker...But I knew nothing of daredevil before I saw it...Robin told me he was blind...but that's about it (I didn't even think it was true...what does he know). But I thought his story was a little interesting. So it was okay...Nothing more.
