They say your whole life flashes before your eyes when you die. And it’s true, even for a blind man. ” – Daredevil

Number of Times Seen – 2 (Theater 4 May 2003 and 5 Nov 2014)

Brief Synopsis – A lawyer blinded as a kid, uses his other enhanced senses to find crime and clean up the city.

My Take on it – I can definitely unferstand why Ben Affleck stated after making this movie that he was done ‘putting on the tights’.

As we all know he has broken that promise because he is set to portray Batman when the Superman-Batman movie eventually gets done.

This movie is quite reminiscent of the way superhetomovirs were thought to work prior to Christopher Nolan changing the way people perceive this genre.

The storyline isn’t so intricate and deals with local corruption headed by an unknown underground crime boss who wields a lot of power.

Affleck’s Matt Murdock can’t in any way be deemed a good performance for him because it is quite bland and uninteresting.

As a potential franchise, the characters and story don’t evoke any reasons for the viewer to want to revisit this ‘world’.

This kind of superhero movie makes me glad that the genre no longer makes movies like this and that the quality of these kind of movie has
risen so much over the decade plus since this was made

Bottom Line – This is a pretty weak Marvel movie. Affleck is mediocre in the title role and the storyline isn’t as interesting as it could be.

Rating – BAFTA Worthy
