Marvel Movie Madness! Part 28: Daredevil

Summary

Tim: Why on earth does this movie have such a lousy reputation? The mind boggles. Daredevil is a second-tier movie about a second-tier Marvel character, and so it follows that it lacks the operatic grandeur, emotional complexity, and mind-bending special effects of the Spider-Man and X-Men movies. Therefore, taken on its own modest merits, Daredevil delivers. Back to Article

I have not seen the director's cut of this piece of garbage. So I shall see it since everyone recommends it.
But even if Elektra has a super duper director's cut I will never again submit myself to watching that Garbage.
Unless the director's cut is Jennifer Garner naked and playing with herself for 2 hours.

Schwarzenegger's Mr Freeze is the best thing about that movie, the same as Farrell is the best thing about Daredevil.

PLEASE tell me you were joking about Mr. Freeze. Ugh. Either way, the best part of Batman & Robin was the end credits.

I have to agree with the opinion that the Directors Cut is an improvement, but it's still generally a pretty bobbins movie. Affleck's stiff, Garner's boring, the soundtrack is ridiculously bad ( nu-metal sounds so dated already!) and the script was written by an 8 year old , i'm sure.

Anyone who uses "one man's opinion" to close an argument is most likely frantically back-peddling, after pulling out the race card a little too quickly.

Hey Jason B, you might also want to put down the comic books and pick up a history book. To state MLK Jrs "whole life was about the promotion of race relations" is very ignorant. Sure, that's the part of his life a 30-second PSA during Black History Month may focus on, but he did much more than that.

How did you know . . . a Hero ain't nothing but a sandwich. My point is Dare-Devil is all silly and make-believe when the real heroes are much better and more compelling.

Sorry you feel this way; I had the EXACT problem with Will Smith playing Robert Neville in I Am Legend . . . (Robert Matheson even describes Neville as having Germanic features--six feet tall and slightly overweight at the beginning of the novel and then thinner towards the end). Will Smith actually gave a better performance than anyone I can think of. The Vampires were totally homogenized though . . .no Ben Cortman, booo.

Whoa. I generally agree with you, but Spiderman 3 was certainly of a higher caliber than Daredevil. Otherwise, agreed. Daredevil is probably at the bottom of the "good" Marvel movies (along w/ the 2nd "Punisher") but it still should be seen as more good than bad. That being said, looking back its much easier to think poorly of the film compared to what came after it. For its time, it was an actually pretty good translation (its hard to believe the same director did the atrocious "Ghost Rider").
