Film Review - Daredevil
Here's 2003's winner of the Larry Flint Award for the best pornographic hero. Huh? Pornographic? One of the definitions of pornography is a creation with no socially redeeming attribute. Daredevil is a hero who is just that - trash.
Here is a hero, like Batman, whose parent was murdered virtually before his eyes (although he is blind). But instead of hauling the criminals to jail, Daredevil kills them. So the hero is a murderer. This alone is enough to completely turn one off. But wait! There's more!
Daredevil is a normal person except he's blind. He has probably the best hearing in the world, and builds a picture from sound much the way a dolphin does with sonar. But for some reason he's running around town much like Spiderman, swinging from building to building from a wire shot from his white cane. He also makes super-human leaps from buildings which we kill a person, or seriously maim them. Daredevil doesn't follow any of the rules of Super Heros. Now how much would you hate this picture? Don't answer! There's more!
Apparently there wasn't enough money to make this movie. The computer graphics suck! Even the first shot had a computer generated rat that just screamed Star Trek V - The Final Frontier. Someone forgot to match the fake lighting on the fake rat. Trouble is, it's not just the fake rat that sucked. Most of the computer generated effects are obvious.
Daredevil is one of those rare pieces of crap that makes you feel dirty after you watch it. You should probably take a bath when you are done.
