DAREDEVIL (Theatrical Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Daredevil—average superhero movie—lacks realism. Part of the challenge lies in the less than spectacular special effects. The other challenge lies with how the actors interpreted and delivered their respective roles. A remake could correct these two flaws or alternatively move on to a sequel with these corrected. Leading man Ben Affleck seems a little light for his part which unbalances the movie and allows Colin Farrell and Jennifer Garner to come forward as the strongest actors here. This movie will most likely move into cult classic status.
