Daredevil – Nostalgia Critic


Hello, I’m the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don’t have to. With Ben Affleck now being chosen
as the new Dark Knight, you have to wonder if anyone ever gave any consideration to having Ben Affleck play a superhero in the past– IT’S DAREDEVIL ISN’T IT?! NO! No no no no no no no! You don’t understand! This isn’t just a bad comic book movie, This is a bad comic book movie from the EARLY 2000S! You know how comic book films are huge now? And smart and funny and clever? Well, back in the day, comic books were still kind of seen as kid stuff. And films like THESE certainly didn’t help its case. So, comic book movies back then had to try even harder to be taken seriously, which surprisingly backfired in how repetitive they became. Every movie had to be DARK and GRITTY and PAINFUL. Which isn’t bad once in a while, But when every single fucking one of them starts to look like that, they start to come across as mopy, complainy, and downright not fun. Don’t get me wrong, some films did it okay, but ones like Daredevil? Ugh. Let’s just say it’s something I’m really not looking forward to reviewing alone. [???] You won’t need to, Critic! I will help you! Who are you? I am a superhero from the early 2000s, simply known as… THE ANGST. Well, that’s great. I could use some help reviewing this. Here, why don’t you come sit next to me– Thank you, but I must stay here. I have so many brooding poses on top of rooftops to show. Oh yeah, I guess that was kind of a thing for a while. But we will get through this together, or my name isn’t THE ANGST! [sigh] All right, prepare for early 2000s super cheese with…Daredevil. It makes me want to hang my head in contemplation! As the credits roll, blood drips down a stained glass window of the Virgin Mary while our hero hangs in pain off the cross at the top of a church. Yep, it’s that kind of movie, kids! Why don’t you just throw in God weeping in the corner saying, “What poetic despair has life become?” We then flash back to the good old days of the bad old days, when we see Affleck playing Matt Murdock growing up in a part of town called Hell’s Kitchen. Yeah, you know it’s coming, so here it is. THIS IS FUCKING PAINFUL! Back to the review. When he was a young boy, he was always beat up by the kid from–ah shit, there’s a Sopranos joke too? Crap, where’s that joke filed under? Um… OF COURSE! No… I WAS FROZEN– No…um… So…that’s why you were interrogated in Law & Order? [Booing] What do you want?! They sprung it on me! [Booing] He’s upset because his dad used to go nine rounds with Heavyweight Louis; Now,he goes nine rounds with Heavyweight Heineken. Dad: You don’t hit nothing but books, get me? But when he discovers his dad was working for a crime boss, he stumbles onto some hazardous chemicals that make him blind. You know… Why is it anything that can give you superpowers is not better protected? You can write “BIOHAZARD” all you want on it, but when kids are allowed in the area and it’s fucking everywhere like goddamn Candy Crush, you might want to rethink security a little bit! Dad: I’m sorry, Matty. His dad gives up his life of crime, but he shouldn’t feel too sorry, as the chemicals heighten Murdock’s other senses, allowing him to see the world like every special feature in a PS3 game. Bully: Hey Murdock! Round two! ‘Yeah, that’s right! We’re such one-dimensional bullies,
we’re ACTUALLY gonna beat up a blind kid!’ We kind of have no souls! Next, we’re going to teach tap dancing to people in wheelchairs! ALSO while beating them up! It’s a thug thing, you wouldn’t understand! “Oh no, he has a cane!” “All I can do is just stand here and take it, I guess!” He’s even become so good that he can even tell when his father is… losing a fight. Murdock: Come on, Dad! Come on, get up! So, wait a minute. His powers are so good he can hear punches over a screaming crowd AND he could take on bullies all by himself? Oh, yes, super powers can do that. I’m actually completely deaf. You are? Yes! Chemical liquid goo made me lose all my hearing. But it also gave me super listening powers as well! So…there’s totally no point to you being deaf, then. Huh? If one thing was taken away from you, but then given back in a different way, there’s totally no point in losing it. Of course there is! It gives me an EDGE! No! It doesn’t! If anything, you can sense things better than you could before! Look at our hero! He doesn’t even need the stick! Not only is he a better fighter than most, but he’s pointing out when to cross the street better than mandatory cameos can. So the disability is totally pointless! In fact, it’s almost like you don’t even have a disability! Well… I also broke my arm. Did you get it fixed? Maybe. THEN IT DOESN’T MATTER! It doesn’t impact anything with your character! I AM THE ANGST! Does a gush of wind ever just push you off a building? Not yet. Wh-whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Ooh! Oh-hoh! Ohohoho! Almost got me there! Hehe. Ooh! Ahahaha–ANGST. So because his father doesn’t throw the fight, he’s killed by a bunch of thugs, with the final punch being given by a villain called the Kingpin, who leaves a rose with all his victims because… …it’ll leave no trace that way??? Dad: “Bruuuce. I mean, Peeeter. I mean, Simba! I mean–” “Oh, you know what to do with this.” Virgin Mary: “Umm…hi, audience!” “Uh, the director has decided to hold on me for a bit…” “…so, ummm…” “…it’s the VIRGIN MARY SHOW!” “DADADADADADADA” “Hey, what are you doing today? Oh, I’m gonna learn all about it–” “Oh thank God. That was getting really awkward.” “I am Count Afflecula! I have come to suck…” …and that’s it.” So. Rather than, oh, I don’t know, hand himself over to science to help other blind people sense what he does, he decides to become a lawyer, because… …let’s face it, saying the “justice is blind” phrase is just too tempting not to use. Murdock: Justice is blind. See? Obvious Rapist: I stopped off at Josie’s bar after work after a few nights. She asked me if I wanted to stick around… …for some fun. (DUN DUN DUN.) Uh, yeah. Listen to his heartbeat to see if he’s lying. Not the SO OBVIOUSLY LYING TONE he’s so OBVIOUSLY LYING WITH. Obvious Rapist: Miss Sutton…Miss Sutton enjoyed every minute of it. Murdock: It’s not right. Another rapist back on the streets. This, of course, forces him to take justice in his own hands! That was totally necessary! Is that guy for real? Yeah, he’s for real. What do you want? Okay, I’ll give you three guesses what he’s going to answer that with. Just assume a superhero’s answer for anything is justice. “How are you?” “JUSTICE.” “What are you eating?” “JUSTICE.” “How do I get to your house?” “Oh, just take a right on Michigan Avenue off the corner of Wabash and JUSTICE!” He tracks him down to a subway where he finally gets the JUSTICE he deserves. Daredevil: That light? At the end of the tunnel? That’s not Heaven. That’s the C TRAIN! “That’s right!” “Daredevil is going to kill you because Matt Murdock is a terrible lawyer!” “Enjoy my compensation for my terrible occupational choices!” Determined to get his half of the story [rimshot] Joe Pantoliano comes in playing Robert Wall (minus the humor) Before he became Robert Wall (minus the humor) As he suspects the urban legend Daredevil might be behind this. Reporter: Are you here to confirm that Daredevil is responsible for this, Detective? Detective: There is no proof that your so-called Daredevil was involved, nor that he even exists. Got it? “Now let me bask in how weaselly and stuck-up I am, as I know for a fact that I will in no way be contradicted at all–” “WHAAAAAAA?????” Reporter: Got it. You know…that’s not exactly the most obvious or safest calling card. Say they didn’t see that gasoline on the floor! Like… most people wouldn’t. What if another subway rider was just waiting for a train while smoking? AAAAAHHHH!!! Oh–oh–oh my God–oh–oh–what– Who the hell is “DD?!” AAAAAAHHH Answering Machine: Matt, are you there? Of course you’re not there. You’re never there. Every time we sleep together, I wake up in the morning alone. I thought that if I waited…if I was patient enough, you’d let me in. Daredevil: “Ugh, fucking J.Lo. Will she ever get the message?” After chewing his pills, because that’s what HARDCORE people do, he goes to confession, as the priest is apparently the only one who knows his secret. Daredevil: Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. “For I am making Daredevil.” Priest: “Your penance is 10 years obscurity. Do one Argo, one Gone Girl, and maybe, one day, you will be Batman.” Foggy: Eyewitnesses say that Casada (?) was singled out by the demonic vigilante… He then meets up with his partner, played by Jon Favreau, clearly taking notes on how NOT to direct a superhero movie. Foggy: Mr. Lee, he made his first payment. He paid in fluke. What? What? Where? Where? Where? Murdock: The door…mumble mumble mumble. Ah, yes, those chemicals also gave him super-sniffing-through-glass-able-to-detect-attractiveness-and-not-just-a-really-nice-perfume-powers, too! It’s a…strange cross to bear. This, of course, is Jennifer Garner, who doesn’t seem to grasp that love is blind. Hey, you know if the film thought of that joke they would’ve said it! Murdock: I didn’t get your name. Elektra: I didn’t give it. Foggy: Okay, some people have no compassion for the handicapped. No, she left because he was Ben Affleck. Though I guess in some respects, that’s kind of a handicap. Elektra: What do you want? Murdock: I just wanted to get your name. He follows her outside to get her name, but… Oh, I can’t even explain it. Just watch. Murdock: Wait a second. Which time we could do like just we’ll start there Okay, so… Where do I begin with this? First of all, I think she’s making it pretty clear she’s not interested in your stalker ass! If she wanted, she could call the cops on you for being a creeper and grabbing her. But nah! It makes much more sense to fight him, which leads to the second and most obvious problem: SHE’S FIGHTING A BLIND GUY! She doesn’t know he has super senses, and neither does anyone else, So really, what is there to gain? If you lose, you got beaten by a blind guy. Pretty pathetic. But if you win, congrats, you beat the shit out of a FUCKING BLIND GUY! How does anyone come out looking good in this scenario? Elektra: My name’s Elektra Natchios. No, really, what–what’s your name? That so obviously can’t be it. Elektra: My name’s Elektra Natchios. “Yes, you should meet my other parents with obvious real names!” “Anastasia Steele and Harvey Manfrenjessindin!” So Murdock and Electric Nachos seemed to hit it off as they go strolling together. Murdock: Where’d you learn how to fight like that? Elektra: My father. He had me study with a different sensei every year since I was five years old. Murdock: Sounds like he wanted to turn you into some kind of a warrior. Elektra: No. Just not a victim. “Which is clearly all I am if I don’t learn how to kick ass!” “He’s very equal that way.” Murdock: Watch your step. Elektra: Oh. Thank you. I didn’t even– Wait. How’d you do that? Oh, NOW you’re asking how the fuck he sees stuff? Because that shit back there, pff, I’ve seen Ray Charles do that on fucking Pepsi commercials! watching screen a paper Trail One that can be traced [will] not you give me bulls on We’re then introduced to our villains of the film: Michael Clarke Duncan as the Kingpin, and Colin Farrell as Bullseye. And I swear, these guys are having the time of their life whenever the camera is on them. It’s like they know the movie is totally fucking ridiculous, so they’re just gonna have fun with it. They’re like Honey Badger! They don’t give a shit! Old Lady: But he did very well for himself, on the internet. But don’t ask me how. So I said– Oh my God. I swear, if Nicolas Cage was a drug, he smoked two bags worth. Attendant: Oh, she’s sleeping. Can I get you anything before we land? Bullseye: More peanuts. Please. We hope you enjoyed this… …charming “choking the old lady” scene. Stay tuned for more uncomfortable dives into the director’s psyche! So Daredevil hunts down another criminal preying on the weak when he comes across an onlooker. Boy: Please don’t hurt me! Daredevil: I’m not the bad guy, kid. “Why is it just because I dress like the DEVIL, everyone assumes I’m the bad guy?!” I’m not the bad guy. I’m not. …The hell was that about? BROODING! Brooding. Yes. Every early 2000s superhero has a moment where he has to stare into the distance to THINK. Yeah, but those other superheroes usually have something to think about. He scared a kid because he was beating up a bad guy! How does that make him question himself? We don’t need a reason! We just need to BROOD. Oh Jesus. Who are you? I am… ANGSTINE. My God, where did you learn karate?! My father didn’t want me to be a victim! I’m AMAZED! Uh, you do know women learn martial arts all the time, right? Impossible! Clearly, there must be some strange reason why. No, a lot of women, just like men, take it up just because they want to take it up. That’s crazy! There’s got to be a reason why! Like, her father was trying to protect her. Or her father was secretly a spy! Or her father always wanted a son! Or maybe her mother played a part somehow? AHAHAHAHA That’s a good one. Yeah, in between picking flowers or NOT BEING DEAD! These aren’t real. I’m just saying, a woman learning martial arts isn’t as “rare” as you think it is. Well, how else can we pretend she’s unique when she’s clearly not? I don’t know, I just need a break from these early 2000s clichés. Very well. Angstine. We draw closer to the third act. You know what that means. Sexy cry? Sexy cry. Okay. [Music] I’m so tortured. Don’t ever be heroes, kids. So Murdock brings Electra Tacos to the roof because he knows it’s going to rain, and that’ll allow him to see her face better. Murdock: You are so beautiful. “Wow, I’m sure this is the first time a superhero who wears all red is kissing his girlfriend in the rain.” “…But we’ll be remembered better for it!” But hero duty seems to be calling. Elektra: What? Matt, what’s wrong? Murdock: “Oh, it should have been about just us, and now it’s about JUSTICE!” I have to go. Elektra: Stay with me. Yeah, don’t worry about it! I’m sure it was nobody important who was getting hija–oh. Peter: Uncle Ben? I’m…sure things will turn out fine. Anyway! AAAAAAA That’s what I’m talking about. Oh, yeah. Quick sidenote: early 2000s editing seemed to really like the style that somebody’s buttcheek sat on the fast forward button and then got up just before the scene starts. This is one of the few additions I actually miss from early 2000s films, because as you can tell, it gets the movie over faster. Kingpin: Hello. You’re the blind lawyers from Hell’s Kitchen. So he finally meets the Kingpin, who wants to bring Murdock into his business. Murdock: We can’t represent you. Kingpin: And why is that? Foggy: Yes, why is that, Mr. Murdock? Murdock: Because… …we only handle clients who are innocent. HA! Okay, a blind man jumping around in tights stopping crimes who can see better than most people, I can take. But a LAWYER who only takes innocent clients? I’m sorry, you totally cut the suspension cord of disbelief! Murdock: Now I found you. “I really want to see you again.” “What do you say we pull the fire alarm and set the sprinklers off?” But the Kingpin puts out a hit on her father, and of course, Bullseye is the one to pull it off. How the hell many assassins stand out as much as this guy does? I mean, for God’s sake, the artist rendering must be pretty easy to sketch! Bullseye: Bullseye! Heh? Ha! Can I adopt you? Bullseye: Bullseye! “It’s on my head! Thought I’d point that out.” “I’m Irish!” So Electronic Honchos thinks, of course, Daredevil killed her father and vows revenge. Meanwhile, we all giggle as one of the world’s biggest comic book geeks cameos in one of the world’s worst comic book movies, as the reporter realizes that the cane used as a weapon is also the cane Murdock walks with. Which is pretty fucking stupid when you really think about it. Why the flying hell would you walk around with that? Isn’t that like Bruce Wayne driving into work with the Batmobile? Somebody’s going to put two and two together! Kingpin: You know, you’ve exceeded all my expectations. Meanwhile, the Kingpin and Bullseye meet to figure out what to do about Daredevil. Bullseye: He… …made me… miss. Kingpin: Too much pride can kill a man. “Well, that’s just ridiculous.” [give] [me] [lecture]. Oh my bad He’s so evil, even ROSES smell bad to him. What does he have for dinner, corned beef and Cabbage Patch Kids’ heads? Meanwhile, Natchios Libre prepares for her revenge by taking on the most dangerous obstacle she can think of: SANDBAGS! Who the hell is even dropping those? Is there just a really confused servant who is not sure why she’s attacking the flooding equipment in their chandelier room? Servant: “Madame, why do you want me to paint a cartoon devil on this one?” Elektra: “Because he’s the one that killed my father!” Servant: “Of course he is.” “Would you like to tour some of the local rubber rooms in the area, by any chance?” So Electron attacks Daredevil outside the one weirdo who dries his laundry at night for some reason? Daredevil: It wasn’t me! I didn’t kill your father! Elektra: Liar! Nice read on that line, Garner. Daredevil: I didn’t kill your father! Elektra: Liar! Yeah, you could really cause people to crack with how convicted and…NOT silly that sounds. Yeah, I was just up all night watching Game of Thrones. Liar! Okay, Walking Dead. Liar! All right, Bates Motel. Liar! All right, Parks and Recreation! Liar! All right! I was watching Downton Abbey! I just have to know what Maggie Smith thinks of turn of the century social noooorms! Liar! OH, SHUT UP! She beats the shit out of him, but then realizes the mistake she’s made. Daredevil: I was trying to protect you. (?) [wolf whistle] “Wait, why do I smell Guinness, stale cigarettes, and Lucky Charms?” Oh yeah, he sneers at rats too. This guy could be a song lyric for the Grinch! Daredevil: I don’t wanna lose you again. Elektra: I’ll find you. “I should get you medical attention, but… yeah, revenge is more important.” “Which reminds me, avenge me if I don’t come back.” Bullseye: Come on. Elektra: “Well, I can do that, too– oh wait, I forgot I suuuck.” “You wouldn’t be so hot if you were a sandbag!” Bullseye: “Does this annoy you? Does this annoy you?” “I’m not touching you!” Elektra: “I don’t get it! I did so good at fighting a blind guy and–” “Oh, NOW I’m putting the pieces together.” Daredevil: “We really suck.” Elektra: “Yeah. Yeah, we do.” So she gets axed off as the police tried to track him down, leading us to where we started. Speakin’ a gettin’ started, Ha, that’s what I plan to do, hyahaha! By God, an eccentric, big-eyed villain! Classic trademark of the early 2000s. Who are you? Name’s Target, hahahaha! Let me guess, because you always hit your target? No, I just really like clearance places. Hahahahaha! Right, you know what we need to do. You’re both going to defeat him? Nope! I’m going to defeat him while she either gets captured or killed. What? It’s an early 2000s thing. We make me look all tough, but in the end, I’ve got to be saved or mourned. Or you could work together? No, this works. Right, lass! You’re good at catchin’ things? Well, catch this! Don’t worry. I’ll stop it with my head! Uh, I don’t think that’s a good idea– Well, that–wow. Hoho! Hehe! Haha! Right! Now I know even MORE what to do! Finally fight? No. Mourn in agony while he mugs for the camera. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Okay, you do what you…feel you’re compelled to do while I get back to the review. Wow. [anguish] Bullseye tracks Daredevil down to the church and they partake in Toccata and Fuck You. Daredevil: “Wow, I dodge bullets and siamese stars and yet somehow I miss THAT?” “The only thing consistent about my powers is how inconsistent they are!” Bullseye: Mumble mumble fear. Looks like I found something you’re afraid of. Let’s bring on the pain. “Oh, begorrah and potatoes!” But he gives him a touch of stigmata because… I don’t know, are we doing Jesus symbolism in comic movies yet? And he wishes him a nice fall. Whoa! Daredevil: Bullseye. Hmm. I also would have accepted, Daredevil: “Knock knock.” Bullseye: “Who’s there?” Daredevil: “JUSTICE!” Priest: Good luck, son. “Do the Lord’s work.” “Kill them! Kill them fucking all!” Kingpin: Send the guards home. Wesley: B-but, sir– Wesley: I was raised in the Bronx, Wesley. This is something you wouldn’t understand. “Yes, I have to go one-on-one… …even though every other murder I’ve committed has always been done by the hands of others… …in fact, I even had others kill Daredevil’s father and only delivered the final punch…” “It’s all about honor!” “A very, very, VERY inconsistent honor.” Daredevil: Kingpin. Daredevil tries to fight him, but forgot he sucks, So he figures maybe the sprinklers will help. Because…yeah, his powers that could sense all these tiny things apparently can’t pick up a 300-pound 7-foot giant for some reason. Daredevil: I’ve been thinking about this day since I was twelve years old. Kingpin: “Uh. I wonder if he knows he missed.” “Uh–ooh!…You got me!…I’m dead!” I don’t understand. Daredevil: I’m not the bad guy. Oh, no shit! Try telling that to the two halves of the guy you let get run over by a train! Daredevil: That’s not Heaven! That’s the C TRAIN! “By the way, I’m totally not the bad guy–” “He knew what I was saying.” Kingpin: I swear I’ll tell them who you are. Daredevil: Tell the guys at Rikers all about how you got beaten by a blind man. Kingpin: Don’t worry about that. ‘Cause I’ll get out. Daredevil: Yeah. I know. And I’ll be waiting. Justice is served. Wait. You’re not killing the guy, he just said he’ll get out to cause more chaos BECAUSE of the faulty justice system– a justice system you’re a part of– and then you said: Justice is served. Yeah, until he gets out! Then it’s NOT, you fucking idiot! Justice is served. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. So the Kingpin is put away until he’s let out again, but it’s okay–justice is served!– And we cut to later, where we see Murdock… …smelling someone who looked like his dead girlfriend. Makes about as much sense as the other stuff. when we then cut to the reporter deciding whether or not to reveal Daredevil’s identity. Reporter: Go get it, man. “This is probably withholding evidence, and I’m not sure why I was writing about it instead of going to the police, but I have little to no part in this movie, so why make an impact now?” [anguish] OH, WILL YOU GUYS STOP IT?! Thank fucking God these clichés are so rarely done anymore! You could point to every comic book movie before it that this film was trying to imitate, from Batman to Spider-Man to Blade. But while those movies at the time offered something new, this just throws in what it heard worked in the past together without attaching any emotional logic or character to it. Once in a while you’ll have something kind of neat, like the blind vision is kind of cool and some of the fights work, but they’re way too few and far between. It was when the old and tired comic book cliches were fading away and the new and inventive ones were starting to take over, and all I can say, is it was definitely for the best. That’s all fine and good, but what about our current situation, buttercup? Oh, don’t worry. I know the one thing that can stop every early 2000s hero or villain. Really? What’s that? Look to your left… …now. [peaceful music] Aw hell, the bloody sun came up. We can’t fight during the day, we only look cool at night! Well…I’ll see you in the sequel that’ll never happen. Angstine: I’m getting a sequel? Nah, you’re dead, it wouldn’t make any sense! I’m Target! Hee-hee-hee-ha-hee-hee-ha-ho-ha-ha! So? Now what? Well, isn’t it obvious? I jump through the city looking awesome while an early 2000s song plays! Oh, you mean the ones that always sound like a southern hick is singing with a golf ball in his mouth? The very one. I’ll see you whatever justice is needed, Critic. I will have no fond memories of you, Angst. Until then! science

  1. Sorry gotta make one more.
    Affcrap :I been dreaming about this since i was seven!
    M Bison: but for me it was a tuesday " hands fancy froot drink"

  2. I remember watching this as a jit nd cracking up in the movie theater. I deadass thought she said Electric Nachos. I thought bullseye and Kingpin were the coolest shit.

  3. I remember watching Daredevil and just ADORING Collin Ferrell. He was great.

  4. Matt Murdock: that one asshole who went through years of law school to say "justice is blind"

  5. It's so obvious if you're in bad movies then you'll be Batman

  6. This film's feels exactly like a 00's Emo music video. Even the effects.

  7. Ben afflek did Daredevil because he thought he would never get the chance to be batman. Then he became batman and quit after his second movie with one cameo in suicide squad.

  8. This is a funny thing to watch after watching The Lego Movie 2 😂

  9. Can you look at Godzilla Planet of the Monsters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Daredevil's powers gave him sonar sight like a bat's sonar system. He can only see vibrations and movements.

  11. If Matt's friend is deaf then how is he hearing everything people say?

  12. When Affleck says “Justice is blind.” He started titled movies Dawn of Justice and Justice League. :p :d

  13. Daredevil elektra and the puniser are the worst movies/comics i have ever read and seen

  14. The movie gives off vibes of a film trying to answer the question of who is the real bad guy, and who decides who the good guy is. The issue with super hero flicks is that we assign heroic efforts a certain level of leniency, because the heroes actions ultimately end up stopping a larger issue. But, if heroes beat the ever bleeding Christ out of somebody, isn't that evil in itself? Who decides the degree of wrongdoing, and why do we assign heroes such a large positive attitude when they hospitalize criminals. I understand crime is terrible and deserve equal punishment, but hero films just bash and demolish them. Just something to think about

  15. Critic should review twilight since robert pattinson is batman now

  16. Daredevil Was So Mad, He Decided To Take Over Gotham City And Decided To Fight The Man Of Steel Himself, Superman Over An Argument About There Mother’s Sharing The Same First Name!

  17. When you put Netflix's adaptation and this you see how far the comic book series and movies have come.

  18. You keep making fun of his powers but I mean that’s how he was created. Just saying.

    P.S. I am NOT defending the movie

  19. Daredevil: When you are so much of a bad lawyer you have to dress up for halloween to kill the people you could not prosecute.

  20. You reading the bible, ringo?
    Cause ima telling ya, Satan ain't a bad hombre. Yehowa on the other hand,… DAMN… total genozidal maniac.

  21. It was inevitable…that I'd subscribe to you on this movie. I liked your review on master of disguise.

  22. This is not by any stretch of the imagination a perfect movie, but some of these criticisms are a little nitpicky.

    1. Your issues with his being blind yet having heightened sense perception that allows him to "see" in a way is not an issue with the movie. This was, of course, exactly how the character functioned in the comic book and it would not have been a faithful adaption in any other way.

    2. Him not killing the Kingpin yet killing the rapist at the beginning is intentional. It is meant to illuminate Daredevil's character development and his viewpoint that it is not just to completely circumvent the legal process.

    3. If you are going to complain about him not killing the Kingpin then we need to complain about Batman not killing the Joker.

    4. Bullseye was over the top in the comic books too. Farrell nails the roll here IMO.

  23. Also how the hell did his caine kill her father? It wasn't even sharp. Not even a blade at the end.

  24. I actually liked the director's cut of this movie. It isn't the greatest but it was fine

  25. Earlier in the video he pushes the guy in the way of the train and the guy gets killed and Daredevil is unaffected by the sound but later in the movie the sound deafens him

  26. Only good thing about this movie is the soundtrack got me into Evanescence

  27. The movie was going fantastically until they introduced Elektra and Kingpin, then it turned into the cheesefest.

  28. The first tow spider man movies from 2002 and 2004 we’re grate! FUCK spider man 3.

  29. Thesis sentence of this review: Moping complaining and not fun. Sorry, Doug, but that's you and this entire review. The Daredevil movie was fine for its age and it's still watchable and still more true to the original material than the current marvel movies. Infinity without Adam Warlock. Captain Marvel played by a chick that probably never even heard of Marvel let alone know how to behave like a superhero.
    I understand that the current way Marvel is presented on the big screen is more appealing to the masses but to comicbook fans these "dark and gritty" movies are a slice of what we grew up loving. Read some Daredevil sometime from the Frank Miller era and embrace the feels.

  30. "So rather than turn himself over to science to help other BLACK people do what he does"….. Did I hear that right? Lmao

  31. Gasoline evaporates in minutes, there’s no way it’d last long enough for Joey Pants to ignite it

  32. Son : "mommy I want that Bullseye (Netflix's Ben Pointdexter)k
    Mommy : "but we have bullseye at home (Collin Farrell's Bullseye)"

  33. So we just gonna ignore that the soundtrack has Bring Me To Life, THE emo teen angst song?

  34. Now that I look at it, the movie not that bad, just because of your hate of it I see it, unlike Daredevil let me stop but with out this we may not have gotten an amazing show, and that's coming from a true comic fan

  35. Not defending this piece of shit but daredevils hearing is soo good that he could hear a girl getting raped in her room a block away

  36. Ya know this movie is actually my brothers favorite especially since Daredevil is his favorite super hero

  37. Remember in the early 2000s only non fighting dishwashing cooking and single mom stereotypes existed

  38. Well if it's get an MCU show on Netflix, I'm pretty sure it's that's good.

  39. One notable difference from the Netflix (aside from quality, better actors, writers and character, and actual respect for the audience)
    Netflix Matt is actually a competent lawyer. When it comes down to it, he can win cases with his super hearing (albiet subtly). His being Daredevil is because he needs to reach when the law can't (remember the story he told when Foggy found out)
    In Afleck's version, his being Daredevil is because he's a terrible lawyer. He took up his mantle just because he couldn't prosecute the obviously un-acquittable villians.
    IDK just a cool difference that i found

  40. Pause it at 20:48… her "entry", &"exit", wound – from the dagger – are hysterically bad! LOL. You can also see were the cable is pulling her pants. Oh Daredevil. U never fail to entertain me -for all the wrong reasons.

  41. Did you know the same chemicals that have daredevil his powers also made the ninja turtles

  42. Anyone see that spiderman show that Micheal Clark Duncan King pin was on? I like that show

  43. Knowing now how bad comic book movies were, it just amazes me so much more that Marvel put so much on Iron Man. If it had been a flop too, it would have been a disaster for them.

  44. Don't forget the post-credits scene where Bullseye comes back and the Director's Cut with Coolio.

  45. He chews his pills so they kick in faster. Which they lightly touched on in this flick but wouldn't it stand to reason that heros like DD, Batman, Moon Knight, Punisher, etc. are all hardcore opiate users? They routinely get stabbed, shot, bones broken, burned, tortured…
    Wouldn't they have medicine cabinets just full of oxys & dilaudid & shit?

  46. Can somebody tell me what the song is they plan at the end with the guitar when the credits roll the guitar gets me every time

  47. 14:01 think what is going is that Daredevil is questioning if he's going to far with taking out criminals.
