  • Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix looks set to be the new superhero series to beat, giving

  • Arrow and The Flash quite a run for their vigilante money.

  • Forget 2003’s Daredevil movie starring Ben Affleck, which mixed po-faced melodrama with

  • cheesy cartoony elements. This new Daredevil series is an entirely different

  • beast and takes Marvel into darker, grittier territory than weve seen before while still

  • firmly locating the world of our new small-screen superhero within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  • With 13 episodes of about 50 minutes each to play with, Daredevil takes an enjoyably

  • slow-build approach to introducing us to Matt Murdock, a brilliant blind lawyer by day and

  • a violent masked vigilante by night. Through a series of flashbacks cleverly integrated

  • into Murdock’s present-day story, we find out how he came to be a street-level hero

  • with enhanced senses, a vigilante on a mission to save his city.

  • The show has a feeling of realism that’s due to many things: there’s the performances

  • of the actors themselves, there’s the Hell’s Kitchen setting and New York filming locations,

  • there’s how the fight scenes are staged, and there’s the way the writers gradually

  • build up the layers of these characters and their stories.

  • And then there’s the show’s darkness, both in terms of its appearance and its attitude.

  • Even the seriesopening credits look like theyre dripping blood.

  • Murdock lives in the deliberately murky-looking neighbourhood of Hell’s Kitchen in a New

  • York City still dealing with the aftermath of the Avengersfirst assembly.

  • There’s a feeling of film noir in the playful use of shadows in the show, and a distinct

  • air of 1970s American movies like Taxi Driver in the its grounded grittiness.

  • And that edginess extends to the script and its unflinching commitment not to shy away

  • from the intense and, at times, brutal nature of Murdock’s story.

  • From what I’ve seen of the series so far, Murdock’s Daredevil doesn’t shrink from

  • violence or meting out justice as he feels fit.

  • Imagine the Oliver Queen we met in Season 1 of Arrow on steroids!

  • Among those who deserve credit for Daredevil’s quite daring tone are executive producer Drew

  • Goddard, who very much sets the mood with his writing on the first two episodes, showrunner

  • Steven DeKnight, and the seriescinematographer Matthew Lloyd.

  • As for the cast, Charlie Cox puts in a pitch-perfect performance as both super-smart and super-charming

  • lawyer Matt Murdock, and his kick-ass, power-punching alter-ego Daredevil, whose initial black costume

  • fits well with the show’s dark themes. Elden Henson brings a real likeability to

  • Foggy, who’s Murdock’s friend and partner-in-law, and he also adds a nice line in humour, throwing

  • some light among the show’s shadows. Plus, there’s a lovely, natural chemistry

  • between Henson’s Foggy and True Blood star Deborah Ann Woll, who plays their first client,

  • Karen Page. As nurse Claire Temple, Rosario Dawson’s

  • time on the show is certainly off to an interesting start.

  • And Vincent D’Onofrio’s turn as shadowy businessman Wilson Fisk is nicely understated,

  • with an ever-present hint of danger. While Toby Leonard Moore hits all the right

  • notes as Fisk’s right-hand man, Wesley. And Vondie Curtis-Hall is totally convincing

  • as old-fashioned newspaper journalist Ben, who wants to unearth stories that make a difference.

  • And if it’s action youre after, you certainly won’t be disappointed with Daredevil.

  • There are plenty of amazing fight scenes, which mix down-and-dirty brawling with martial

  • arts influences to great effect. The show’s stunt team, including stunt and

  • fight co-ordinator Philip J Silvera, really have done a superb job.

  • Oh, and listen out for the sound during those fightsit's bone-crunchingly intense!

  • After watching the first five episodes of Daredevil, I cannot wait to watch the rest!

  • And I’m now even more excited to see the other street-level hero series that Marvel’s

  • got up its sleeve, including AKA Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage; all of whose main

  • characters will team up with Daredevil in The Defenders.

  • Lots to look forward to!

  • So, to sum up: Daredevil is a delectably dark dive into the world of Marvel’s popular

  • street-level hero. Combining an incredible cast and awesome stunts

  • with a smart slow-burn script, the series shows that justice can be both blind and bloody.

  • Daredevil gets 4.5 out of 5 Flicks.

  • When youve seen Daredevil, tell me what you think of the show.

  • How excited are you for Marvel’s upcoming TV shows AKA Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and

  • Iron Fist? And who’s your favourite superhero on the

  • big or small screen & why? Let me know in the comments below!
