Daredevil

Updated on April 1, 2011

The studio without a clue

Marvel's newest incarnation hits the big screen. Based off the classic Daredevil comic books. The film is essentially an origin story about a young boy whom is blinded by a batch of chemical but is given sonar vision (like a bat). Unfortunately, after the accident, Daredevil/Matt Murdock's (Ben Afleck) father is killed by vicious mafia leaders. Thus causing Matt to devote his life to fighting injustice as Daredevil. Along the way fighting the sultry Elecktra (Jennifer Gardner), his arch nemesis Kigpin (Michael Clark Duncan)and Bullseye. Aside from the action sequences and Bullseye, it seems like the film is basically a rip off of "Batman Returns." Copying the love story of two characters with similar situations becoming attracted to each other, but having to fight each other due to difficult circumstances. However, this one isn't as good. Ben and Jennifer both overact in the film, and the way the story is setup is cliched. Plus, a mediocre script doesn't help either. I know he's "the man without fear" but he's also the man without a brain...at least in this film. In one scene, where Kingpin offers Murdock and his friend a job as his lawyers, and Murdock replies,"We only represent clients that are innocent." Call me crazy, but I don't think anyone would honestly say that to a mafia leader. Even the ending is cheesy, (Warning: Spoiler Alert!) when Kingpin finds out Murdock's identity, and he just lets Kingpin go to jail alive knowing it. Saying, "let the world know how you were beaten by a blind man." If that wasn't a cliche ending, then I don't know what is. However, the few fight scenes with Daredevil and Bullseye should be worth watching. Overall, this is just a disappointing film.

      Nope. Don't agree. But, many seem to. Batman Returns is more like Batman with Kim Basinger or 3 or 4. I found the DD/Elektra combo more interesting than these, although Elektra is in no way a sultry Cat Woman.
