This is the type
of movie that Hollywood loves to make.
No story, an inane script, no acting, people fly, loud noises,
absurd special effects, lots of gratuitous violence.
(Ben Affleck) is a blind lawyer who is a superhero at night, apparently to
right injustice, but we really donít see him doing that.
What he really wants to do is avenge the murder of his father by
Kingpin, whom I wonít identify because his identity is apparently some
sort of mystery in the movie. He falls in love with another superhero (how
she got that way isnít explained, at least while I was awake), Electra
(Jennifer Garner) and they fly through the air fighting each other until
they come up against Bullseye (Colin Farrell), a supervillain assassin.
Murdock and Bullseye then fly through the air fighting each other.
This takes one hour and forty-three minutes (I counted every one of
them while I was awake).
How idiotic is
this movie? Well, Electra
meets Murdock when heís dressed in his lawyer suit, wearing dark glasses
apropos of being blind, so she canít see his eyes.
When she meets him as Daredevil, however, she doesnít recognize
him because heís wearing a hood that covers, get this, nothing but his
eyes! When she pulls off the
mask and sees his eyes (which were covered when she met him as a lawyer),
she recognizes him!
terribly miscast; looking like Little Lord Fontleroy dressed up in his
superhero suit. Farrell, who
continues to establish himself as an exceptionally gifted actor, does a
good job as the bad guy. To
think that Affleck could take him would require, well, a Hollywood movie!
Daredevil is a
complete waste of time so Iím not going to waste any more time writing
