Review of Marvel's Daredevil

60 minutes

Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios, with executive producers Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus), Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Drew Goddard (Cabin In The Woods), the series also stars Rosario Dawson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

After watching Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter, I had high expectations from Daredevil. Unfortunately, those expectations were not really met. The acting was too dramatic (a bit like Arrow), that the tone felt more serious than necessary. But unlike Oliver Queen where I understood his goals and the reason for him to be dramatic, I couldn't really grasp the fundamental goals of Matt Murdock. It was difficult to follow, and only after watching a handful of episodes, could I finally get a clearer picture. Wilson Fisk's character wasn't developed enough for me to actually fear or hate him. I simply found him annoying. Despite these flaws, there were certainly some great parts: the action. No doubt were the action scenes amazing, and it is the action scenes which drove me to watch and finish this series. The choreography of the fights were stunning, and has done an amazing job at building suspense. Although this show wasn't as great as the two other Marvel series, it is still quite decent compared to many other Action shows. I look forward to the upcoming seasons.
