"Daredevil" review by
Eva Diaz 4/20/15
Airs on Netflix - watch the first season -13 episodes now!
I love superhero shows! My favorite superheroes are
Superman, Batman, and the Flash (although, I don't agree
with some of the changes that have been made to the Superman
back story in recent film and TV versions). However, I say
all this because it is very rare for me not to have heard of
a popular superhero. I must admit, though, that I had never
heard Daredevil. Because of his being new to me, I was
excited to hear that they were going to have a show about
him. I have only seen the first episode so far, and that
episode is the basis for this review. I enjoyed the show
very much. I felt that the lighting was very dark, but it
served to highlight the evil of Hell's Kitchen where Matt
Murdock (Charlie Cox) lives. He's a lawyer who was blinded
as a child from an accident and radioactive spill. Now he
uses his skills as a lawyer to defend those people who
cannot defend themselves, and at night he is Daredevil,
defending people who need help to fight the evil around
them. I like daredevil for many reasons, but the main reason
is that as Matt Murdock the lawyer, the character can be a
hero when he wins a case, and as Daredevil he can also help
people who need him around the city.
The show has a lot of humor, but it's also dramatic and
sweet without losing the elements of a good superhero. I
also enjoy the great chemistry between Matt and his buddy
--best friend and law partner Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson). I
have heard that the supporting cast in future episodes is
great and will include Rosario Dawson. This show feels like
a movie, broken down into hourly segments. If you like a
good superhero show, mixed with a good lawyer show,
Daredevil is the one for you. Being on Netflix, it's perfect
for binge-watching on the weekend, or to watch one or two
episodes at a time when you have some free time. It is very
well-written, although the violence is a bit graphic and
disturbing at times. I give this show a 5 out of 5 stars.
The show began airing on Netflix on April 10.
