About This Film
This is the director's cut version of
the film on Blu-Ray!
(2003): This movie is okay, but not one of my favorite
films. I was really excited to see this movie at first because I
always liked the character. He had that cocky, never-say-die
attitude that I always admired in superheroes. In this movie,
Daredevil wasn't like that. He basically just felt sorry for
himself all the time, which made him come off a bit wimpy. I
didn't like the casting of "Daredevil" with Ben Affleck as Daredevil or
Jennifer Garner as Elektra. The producers made it into too much
"Ben Affleck" movie and not enough of a "Daredevil" movie.
Ben Affleck makes serious love drama movies, which is what this was
save for a handful of thrilling action scenes. Jennifer Garner
NOTHING like Elektra from the comics, merchandising, or anything
Besides the fact that she's too slight as compared to the
character drawings, she doesn't look Greek, which is what the character
is supposed to be. Colin Farrell as Bullseye and Michael Clarke
as Kingpin were AWESOME! Duncan's a great, likeable actor...even
he's playing bad guys. I had my doubts at first, though, whether
was right for "Kingpin." He didn't really look the part, but man
he play a ruthless bad guy! He was superb! Colin Farrell
crazy Irishman persona to the hilt as assassin Bullseye who can
practically make a throwing weapon out of just about anything! I
little disappointed that Bullseye didn't wear much of a costume.
character looks cool in the comics. He just looks like an
punk here. Still, Farrell did wonderful work that shouldn't
overlooked by film buffs.
movie is worth seeing for the action scenes and
the bad guys!
