Daredevil has a brooding dark and dank air about it, much like Batman. That's about the only element that lends the movie any character.

Gatorade baths and clingy clothes.
December 13, 2017
From start to finish, the film is death-ridden and employs overamplified sound to pump up its many pornographic images.
July 14, 2015
It isn't a great film, or even a greatly original one. Still, it has many grace notes, and interesting oddities.
July 14, 2015
Much of the rest of Daredevil is so dark that you can't see it. I don't think you're missing a great deal.
July 14, 2015
Writer-director Mark Steven Johnson's movie is too heavily reliant on tried and tested ingredients, such as Batman-type design and Matrix-style fighting.
July 14, 2015
The ghostly sonar effects showing how Matt "sees" through sound are interesting, and Farrell's mad dog performance is fun. But overall Daredevil is nothing to marvel about.

Much of the film is a setup for hoped-for sequels, so the plot isn't really the thing. But Daredevil benefits from some strong supporting roles.

When Farrell's on screen, Daredevil becomes more than just a finely tuned entertainment machine. In a movie that will rake people in no matter what, it's fun to see something unexpected.
July 14, 2015
Daredevil, as brought to the screen by writer/director Mark Steven Johnson, brings real violence and death into the comic book mix, and the result is a fascinating blend of the fantastic and the tragic.
July 14, 2015
Daredevil is a perfectly serviceable B-movie, something to tide over genre fans waiting for X-Men 2.

There's good stuff in the margins. But on the heels of such successful comic-book adaptations as X-Men and Spider-Man, Johnson's film makes Daredevil look like the second-rate hero he never really was.
October 19, 2012
For all its clichés, it has a cracking third act, helped by doses of 15-rated violence.
July 30, 2012
there's a lot to like here and a comic film more people should give another chance.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10
December 22, 2010
Superhero is darker, more violent than Spiderman.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 7, 2010
The film is impressively dark and gritty, but the melodrama and Daredevil's relationship with woman warrior Elektra are labored.

July 7, 2010
Torn between moody grandiosity and cartoonish mayhem, Daredevil tries to have it both ways, and succeeds at neither.
July 7, 2010
Justice may be blind, but the only enjoyment to be had out of this is to be blind drunk.
April 29, 2009
Give it a shot, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
October 18, 2008
It may not have the heart of Superman, the charm of Spider-Man or the thrills of X-Men, but Daredevil is an engaging B movie in the tradition of good Saturday afternoon entertainment.
