Critic Reviews for Marvel's Daredevil Season 1

Charlie Cox simply owns the role of Matt Murdock... He sinks so perfectly into the role that (as much as we might love Ben Affleck) he makes us forget the 2003 film ever existed.

Charlie Cox reinvents the gentle hero for the good.

Yes, we can finally put visions of Ben Affleck in red in the rearview mirror as Matt Murdock has at long last been given the treatment his legions of fans have long-claimed he deserved.

Apr 9, 2015 | Full Review…

Marvel's Daredevil, Netflix's latest offering, is a well-scripted, beautifully acted superhero saga that is surprisingly impressive.

Apr 9, 2015 | Full Review…

D'Onofrio's performance is the one truly great thing about a generally pretty-good show.

[Vincent D'Onofrio] is amazing as always.

Feb 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The ambition of season 1 has yet to be bettered elsewhere in the Netflix Marvel universe.

But if you watch one episode, you'll watch them all.

Jul 24, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Here there is no time for spandex, aliens, futuristic armor or thunder gods. Only blood, moral conflicts and a lot of pessimism. Welcome to the dark side of Marvel. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Daredevil: Season 1

  • Jul 31, 2019
    Spanning over 3 seasons marvel's daredevil is a phenomenal show in many ways including a believable grounded story unlike some of the films in MCU. This show also has believable motivations for their characters such as Fisk who in my opinion is the best villain in the MCU timeline so far. Matt Murdock is also very believable as Matt and Daredevil. Also the side characters in the show are the best in marvel Netflix such as Foggy, Karen and Vanessa. The Story is amazing without any spoilers the story Matt vs Fisk is very compelling as it spans throughout three seasons and the story is not afraid to go dark. Overall these seasons are some of the television I've seen and it deserves all the praise it gets. Except for a few nitpicks like rushing s of scenes this is a perfect to show.

    By far the best Marvel TV show to date, and it keeps up its quality throughout all three seasons. Some great fight scenes and drama as we see the origin stories of both Daredevil and Kingpin. Excellent work by the leads and supporting cast, as well as the crew all around.
  • Jul 21, 2019
    The most comic accurate show to ever be created, the casting is amazing Cox and Wilson Fisk is. Not only is it an amazing comic book show it is an amazing show in itself.
  • Jul 21, 2019
    It's is the perfect story, villain, cinematography, writing, and everything else. It is one of the best shows ever
  • Jul 21, 2019
    Daredevil is of the darker, more conflicted side of the Marvel universe and I will always be here for clever dialogue amongst a good cast with well-choreographed fight sequences (some amazing one shots during the season). Charlie Cox is excellent as Matt Murdock/Daredevil perfectly conveying the characters ethical dilemmas, drive, and charisma. Vincent D'Onofrio was born to play Wilson Fisk/Kingpin. He's at his creepy, raging, seething maniac best. I like that most of the Netflix Marvel entries are less camp and more gritty and cinematic, but this one takes it to another level by making it clear that the underbelly of the city is thriving in Hell's Kitchen because of the destruction left in the wake of "The Incident" or The Avenger's battle royale in the city. Conflict on every level. Bonus points for the moody and beautifully done animated theme sequence.

    A tragedy-like problem, that seems to be unsolvable is solved by a blind superhero, that does not kill. Daredevil shows us, that it is possible to portray Matt, without making a mistake. The intro is at first a bit boring, but after a few episodes you realize, that it changes our mood, with its look and music to the mood in the story. This genious mastermind that planned this show must have a vision into our minds, because he does right that, what we want.

    The first season of Daredevil is one of the most realistic comic book superhero adaptations I've seen not only in television but in movies. It is dark and gritty but not so much that it is a drab and depressing bore. It has very well-realized and human characters that give the show an emotional weight, exciting action sequences that are well-choreographed and filmed, and great performances by Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil and Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, who is one of the best villains I've seen in a long time.

    well worth it the best adaptation of daredevil we have does the comics justice does wilson fisk justice amazing
  • Jul 06, 2019
    It was a great season and a good introduction to daredevil
  • Jul 02, 2019
    The first season of DareDevil is amazing. It makes up for the 2003 Daredevil film starring now current Batman Ben Affleck. The show is a good example on how to do a TV show right in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Show lays the ground work for the other shows setting a higher standard for The Punisher in Season 2, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron fist. The costume was a miss, but later when the show continued I got used to it but later it was replaced by the greater suit. The cinematography is great, and the choreography is excellent! In Episode 2, the acting is great while having one of the most famous fight scenes in the show and possibly the most famous hallway fight scene! You can see Matt Murdock/DareDevil wheezing at the end, and begin trying to throw his body to hit something. It improves everything. Foggy Nelson and Karen Paige were annoying, but after Episode 3 I liked them. They are a likeable group. Charlie Cox is an amazing daredevil and, even though he is English, he puts on a daring voice. It has everything that you could possibly want.
