News & Interviews for Marvel's Daredevil: Season 2
It's the perfect balance between intrigue, conflict, screen violence, strong characters and a tinge of Catholic guilt and redemption.
Daredevil is about a man with a savior complex who wrestles with the morality of violence, which the show portrays in gruesome, prolonged, visceral ways.
Once again, bone-crunching violence, and a compelling hero.
It feels like it's trying a little when it should be trying hard. And in an increasingly competitive and saturated market of on-screen superheroes, not trying hard is something no superhero show can afford to do.
It's a testament to Daredevil's overall quality that, even at its worst, it's still one of the best superhero TV shows around.
Audience Reviews for Marvel's Daredevil: Season 2
Daredevil's second season begins to falter to a small degree in its last few episodes. However, up until that point it is transcendent television. And afterwards? It's still pretty great. Special props to Bernthal's Punisher who blew expectations out of the water.
Daredevil Season 2 continues to boast more of its emphatic action and also its menacing & brutal sequences. The addition of new cast members (Bernthal & Yung) provide for a fresh and darkening portrayal of their respective characters, even if the subplots become difficult to pinpoint at times. Regardless, the second season continues its rise with its pulse-pounding storytelling, action and drama; making for a more-than-satisfying follow-up on the acclaimed Netflix-original. 4.5/5
Season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil gets even more gritty and action-packed with the introduction of Elektra and the Punisher. When former Iraq veteran Frank Castle starts a war with the Irish mob to avenge the deaths of his family Daredevil attempts to stop the bloodshed by capturing Castle; but things get more complicated when, as Matt Murdock, he takes Castle's case to prevent him from getting the death penalty and uncovers a government conspiracy. Meanwhile Matt's former girlfriend Elektra comes to town and stirs up some trouble of her own. Both Jon Bernthal and Elodie Yong give excellent performances and come to own their characters. And the writing and directing is really intense, and avoids a lot of typical superhero tropes. The storytelling is also incredibly well-done, tightly weaving multiple story threads throughout the season. Exciting and full of thrills, Season 2 of Daredevil gets darker and more compelling.
