Daredevil


Matt Murdock also known as Daredevil is easily one of the most well liked B-list heroes. If youíve read the comic books, you already know his backstory. When Matt was a kid, he pushes a man out of harmís way during an accidental explosion and the acid renders Matt blind. However the side effects of the acid substantially enhance his other senses.

Matt was being raised by his dad who was a boxer who and didnít win many fights. Later on itís uncovered that every now and then he throws a fight so he can earn extra money. Fast forward to a big-ticket fight that Mattís dad is offered. Originally he agrees to throw the fight but as the fight day approaches he has a change of heart. He opens up a bank account for Matt, places a big bet on the fight (that heís going to win) and then he defeats his opponent. That same night, Mattís dad is killed and Matt life is forever changed.

Fast-forward to the present, Matt Murdock just opened up a law practice with his best friend. By day, he makes a difference by defending innocent victims and helping them win court cases. At night, he dons a mask and takes on a vigilante role where he listens for crime and then stops the would-be criminals in their tracks. Although Daredevil is blind, he has heightened senses and he is a master of martial arts. There are numerous bad guys that he encounters but they all lead up to Daredevilís arch nemesis/the cityís crime lord, Wilson Fisk also known as The Kingpin.

In this Netflix series, Charlie Cox plays Daredevil. His best friend and law partner ďFoggyĒ is played by Elden Henson. The Kingpin is played by Vincent DíOnofrio (who you may recognize from Law and Order: SVU). Two pleasant surprises are the addition of Deborah Ann Woll (who played Jessica on HBOís Trueblood) and Rosario Dawson who has been in a ton of movies, notably Men in Black II. The show focuses on Mattís vigilante justice.

Pros

*The show has a lot of action scenes and Mattís business partner, Foggy, provides comedy relief.
*There are also a lot of action scenes due to all of the fighting.
*Since itís a Netflix series, you can watch as many episodes as you want including finishing the entire series in one setting.

Cons

*The show is very dark. Itís lighting is actually dark throughout the episodes. Some of this can probably *be attributed to the fact that Matt is blind and doesnít really need lights.
*Itís slow to start. Since the series walks you through Daredevilís backstory, it takes a while to get to the good action scenes.

Although Daredevil is good for a comic book reader, a person who has no idea who Daredevil is can easily catch up and still enjoy the show. The best thing is the fact that you donít have to subscribe to cable to see the show. You can use your existing Netflix account.
