Attorney Matt Murdock is blind, but his other four senses function with superhuman sharpness. By day, Murdock represents the downtrodden. At night, he is Daredevil, a masked vigilante stalking the dark streets of the city, a relentless avenger of justice.
Action Sci-Fi - An action superhero story that's probably more for adults than
little kids due to the rather strong content. The story is quite
violent and kind of sad in a way. There are very few, if any, feel-
good, fun moments like there were in Spider-man. The story
likely too corny to be of interest to most adults.
PROFANITY: 1 GD, 3 A-words, 3 S-words. Just a few others. SEX/NUDITY: One sex scene that's a little graphic for a movie that attracts kids. VIOLENCE: Very Violent! Especially for a movie kids will want to see. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Quite a bit of bar drinking. ACTION: Quite a few fight scenes. Very little other action. COMEDY: A dozen or so smiles and chuckles.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Looks like quite a few moviegoers agreed with me that Daredevil wasn't all that great, but there weren't as many low opinions as I thought there might be.
Teens thought it was great, both males and females. The young adult opinions were lower, but most still enjoyed it very much. As for the adults, a little better than half really enjoyed Daredevil and rated it "Very Good" and higher. The remaining half just rated it "Good" and "Fair," which is pretty low, but certainly not terrible.
My recommendation: If you go in knowing it's got some very unrealistic scenes and is a bit corny and you can overlook those shortcomings and just focus on the good parts, then you should easily enjoy Daredevil.
Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Disappointing. Not terrible, but certainly no where near the quality of Spider-man. It also seems too violent and sad for the small kids that will be interested in seeing it. I think the writers just think that being a comic book movie with some special effects is enough. They didn't take the time to make the story "cool" and reasonably realistic. As an example, one minute Daredevil can barely hold up his head due to an injury and just a few minutes later he's jumping around like crazy fighting the bad guy like he's never been hurt. There are other unrealistic scenes that actually caused unintended laughs. There are a few good scenes and as I said, it's not terrible, but it is terrible they wasted such a great potential series. I predict kids will easily overlook these shortcomings and give very high opinions, they almost always do. Adults will likely be a different story. There will probably be many low opinions and very few high opinions with most opinions being in the "Fair" to "Good" range.
He dwells in a world of eternal night - but the blackness is filled with
sounds and scents, tastes and textures that most cannot perceive. Although
attorney Matt Murdock (Ben Affleck) is blind, his other four senses function
with superhuman sharpness. By day, Murdock represents the downtrodden. At night
he is Daredevil, a masked vigilante stalking the dark streets of the city, a
relentless avenger of justice.
For Daredevil, justice is blind…
…and for the guilty (and often himself), there's hell to pay.
