Yes, it is darker to other Marvel material but to me, it is more real. Hard hitting, action packed, intense entertainment. And this is just the beginning on the Netflix front.

Gruesomely dark in contrast to the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe, Daredevil's refreshing take on the superhero and his world makes for a realistic and exciting superhero series to watch. With a talented cast, great fight sequences, and more mature style, Daredevil won't disappoint.

Marvel's TV universe suffered a setback with this series!
If only episodes 1 through 12 were as good as episode 13. A partial utilization of Rosario Dawson's talent, an over utilization of Deborah Ann Wohl's (TrueBlood), made this a bumpy ride. Unlike Agent Carter and Agents of Shield, the directing suffered add to that, the lead, Charlie Cox, doesn't command our attention. I enjoyed Elden Henson character and major Kudos to Vincent D'Onofrio, his acting brilliance dominates the screen, no villain since since Keith Ledger's Joker has had so much control.

One of Marvel's best adaptations on television and movie screen. The action and fight scenes were well-choreographed and great to watch. I really have to give it to all the actors, especially Charlie Cox for doing such a wonderful job. I just finished it, but I want to watch it all over again.

Daredevil is gritty as it is a wonderful prequel. Netflix, Marvel sure know how to put a tv show together that builds the story, brings the elements of Daredevils suit, the violence, kingpin being a beautiful villain in the beginning and the love of his life. i love the opening credits as well as the grittiness, rawness and the gory aspect of the show. word of advice: dont watch it when you are eating since sometimes there is a kill scene that they really seem to go on and on killing, not that i am complaining... it is just very raw and i knew what i was getting into when i seen the trailer for it.. this show does not disappoint one bit.

It's okay. I think people like it a lot more than its worth. The show was pretty predictable. The great acting i expected from Vincent D'onofrio did not start until way late in the game. Also the show had one of the worst cases of solve through serendipity that i ever saw in something taking itself seriously. Manhole in a house leading to an underground escape... ffs.

Daredevil is a new breed of TV series that brings to life a newfangled level of depth not previously explored in the increasingly popular genre of vigilante/superhero shows.

Boasting almost unparalleled character development as well as action choreography, Daredevil incorporates all the elements of fantastic television, nor is it lacking on any front.

Although Daredevil tells us not a new story that we've never heard before --it tells us a realistic one, and one that we openly welcome and embrace whenever we hear it. Two men fight to save the city they love using different methods to achieve their goals - both believing theirs is the right way. Its a story that capitalizes on the human element and focuses on the characters and their personal stories while still forming a larger collective.

Marvel released a statement somewhat recently where they said, after "Ant-Man" they will no longer be doing "origin stories" with their future films. In line with that statement, the upcoming film, "Doctor Strange" will not be an origin story, but will dive right in, with small references to the Doctor's past.

For those of you who do not like that direction and feel, like myself, that an origin story is a necessity to the superhero genre and often delivers a film comprising of the most solid cinematic structure, I am absolutely delighted to inform that Marvel has not altogether abandoned the origin story -- they just brought it to a new medium; television.

Daredevil, aired exclusively on Netflix is the first of a series of 4 scripted origin story TV series involving Marvel Heroes from Hell's Kitchen that will end in a joint series, "The Defenders" in which they all work together. In early 2015, Daredevil's creators released a statement saying that each show is very much open to the possibility of additional seasons, though it will be difficult to figure out how to do so in light of The Defenders. After binge watching Daredevil in 3 days and seeing all the wonderful reviews it's garnered, I'm hoping that it will have additional season pickups.

While I might be the minority with my opinion that Batman Begins was a far superior film to The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, I believe many of you who view the films as a single entity will be overjoyed to learn that Daredevil, as a series, functions much like the Batman trilogy. It establishes the character's origins, his life both in and out of costume, and explores in a serial format his quest to save the city from a single all-powerful antagonist. Daredevil has a distinct beginning, middle and end, and very much feels like one cohesive film. Few other TV series, including serialized shows can speak to being set up like a movie in this way. This is key, because even though you will intensely miss Daredevil and crave more after watching it, you will ultimately receive a feeling of conclusion that you do not get from more open-ended series.

To break things down quite simply, Daredevil has some of the best action I've ever seen (even better than Arrow, Person of Interest, or Banshee), fantastic characters, a beautiful girl (Deborah Ann Woll), a good-looking male lead (Charlie Cox) whose got 'the jaw', the comic-relief character (Eldon Henson) and for those who care, some truly fantastic acting by Vincent D'Onofrio as Kingpin.

5 stars. 10/10, 96%.
Make Daredevil the next show you watch.

Mom, Dad, and two friends lined up to watch Daredevil with it.

I've caught the first few episodes and I'm definitely hooked. This is one of the best 'comic' shows out there... Fills the empty void that Arrow has been leaving me with (I know, different universe, but still...)
