Daredevil product reviews

The first in a planned series of shows detailing the Marvel universe, "Daredevil" follows Matt Murdock, attorney by day and vigilante by night. Blinded in an accident as a child, Murdock uses his heightened senses as Daredevil, fighting crime on the streets of New York after the sun goes down. His efforts are not welcomed by powerful businessman Wilson Fisk -- aka Kingpin -- and others whose interests collide with those of Daredevil. Though Murdock's day job portrays a man who believes in the criminal justice system, his alter ego suggests otherwise, as he takes the law into his own hands to protect his Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and the surrounding communities.

I was intrigued by this due to the overwhelmingly positive review that I got from a friend who is a great fan of DC (I believe his words were "faster than Arrow[...]stunts are mental!!". What added to the intrigue, was that there was an entire season of content available to watch and yet I had no prior knowledge of it's existence, despite my love of recent Marvel releases. That was when I discovered that it was exclusive to Netflix; which proved to be an inconvenience. Lucky for me, I know people that have Netflix, who allowed me to binge-watch the series.

Initially, I thought the series was going to be incredibly irritating. I found the back story of Matt Murdock as a child to be rather irritating. I just the amount of crying and whining was less than pleasant; which I suppose technically makes it pretty realistic audio. The "current" storyline however, I greatly enjoyed. It went as far as to explain most of how the Daredevil's skills were attained, the creation of his persona, and has sown the seeds for future storylines.

One of the things that both pleased and outraged me, was the fact that it was frank; death did occur, and it had a significant impact on the characters. It wasn't just shrugged off, it wasn't forgotten over time. It became a part of the character, not just an event that the character was involved in. Of course, when death occurs, unfortunately you may lose characters that you have come to enjoy, and know could play a pivotal part in future plots. But such is life, and that makes it all the more convincing of a series.

One of the quirks that is a significant plot point is Daredevil not being a direct killer, despite having and using the ability to beat a person to oblivion. Looking at the weapons used, and the severity of many of his attacks, it is clear that some attackees may have succumbed to their injuries, but still his moral and ethical guidelines are as much a restriction as they are a saving point. They provide an important distinction when trying to convince the public that he is not evil, but also means that he has to incapacitate every person that is not on his side, and this takes a while (but does mean that there are a lot of kick-ass fight scenes).

The fight scenes themselves are very much agility based. Many defensive blocks, and artistic gymnastic-style escape and counter techniques, make it very fun to watch. However, again the constant longer fights, due to the restriction of not wanting to kill, does stretch out the fights, and make them a tad repetitive.

This series does have a very similar feel to 'Arrow' and 'The Flash', but isn't plagued by the constant reminder of who the show is at the start of every episode (ie. the "My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive...", and "My Name is Oliver Queen. After five years in hell..."); It just has a simple but fun-to-watch opening credits.

I thoroughly enjoyed the series. I binge watched about 12-13 hours of content over 3 days, and I wish there was more to watch. Can't wait for Season 2! Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys their superhero stuff!
