It’s certainly not without its issues but I’ve always thought this was unfairly hated. There’s definitely a lot of early-2000s shlock (like the laughable playground scene), the story is a discombobulated mess and there’s not enough character development (isn’t Daredevil only supposed to kill when it’s absolutely necessary?) but overall, I still think there’s a lot of fun to be had with this. I think’s it’s well-cast and there’s some great action, even if it feels like there are a lot of missing pieces to the story. I also love the alt-rock/grunge soundtrack, especially the heavy presence of Evanescence. The “Bring Me To Life” scene rocks. I really wanna watch the director’s cut soon cause I hear it’s way better.
