Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
I'm a big fan of the slightly darker comic filmings, which is why I am also a big fan of the Batman trilogy by Christopher Nolan. "Daredevil" is from the Marvel universe and everyone who knows the Marvel movies like Thor, Avengers and Captain America, maybe would expect a funny TV show.
But Daredevil is adopting a completely different direction. Dark, serious and much more brutal than the Marvel movies. "Daredevil" do features some funny moments, particularly through the character Foggy Nelson.
A small plot summary for you:
Daredevil deals with the attorney Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox). He is blind, but his remaining senses are supernatural. At night he fights as "Daredevil" against the crime of Hell's Kitchen. He opens a law firm named "Nelson & Murdich" with his best friend Foggy Nelsen (Elden Henson).
I was quite impressed by the depth and complexity of the characters. I sympathized directly and could not stop to watch this series. It is very demanding and not for sensitive people, because there are a lot of very bloody scenes. But this doesn't detract from the value of this series. I am not a big fan of unnecessary scenes of violence with only one goal: provocation (Game Of Thrones :P). Daredevil convinced with his characters, the drama in the story and the good appearance. It is exciting and thrilling. The camera, the cut and general appearance of the series is impressive. The fight scenes are filmed so well that even I was impressed. And normally I'm not impress by battle or action scenes.
Watch this if you like comics and super hereos without crazy super powers (like superman who literaly can do anything). Don't watch this if you're not a fan of brutal images and fight scenes. Some of the stuff in this is very bloody and brutal, so if you can't see stuff like that, don't watch it!
