Whether or not one likes Daredevil the movie probably has a lot to do with whether or not one likes Daredevil the comic book. To its credit (or, depending upon your perspective, its detriment), Daredevil is one of the most faithful comic-book adaptations to make it to the big screen. Yet in a world where the red-suited crimefighter is hardly a cultural icon in the same league as Batman and Spider-Man, that will mean very little to most filmgoers.
Daredevil tells the story of Matt Murdock (Ben Affleck), a young lawyer who spent his youth getting kicked around by life in Hell's Kitchen, NYC. He's blinded at an early age in an industrial accident, but when he recovers, he discovers that his remaining senses are superhumanly acute. When his father, a boxer, is killed by gangsters for refusing to throw a fight, Matt Murdock vows to dedicate his life to fighting for what's right. To that end, he becomes a lawyer by day and a masked vigilante by night--Daredevil, the Man Without Fear.

The Daredevil movie it completly polorizing in terms of opinion. The description of the movie on this very site says it's one of the most faithful comic book movie adaptations of all time, despite the fact that kingpin is black in this movie and not white and the films location is in los angeles and not hells kitchen! Speaking on kingpin however, while not being aesthetically faithful to his comic book counterpart, he is expertly played by the late great Michael Clarke Duncan. Afleck also gets a lot of stick for his portrayl of Matt by in this reviewers humble opinion, he does his absolute best he can do with the frankly substandard script and story he has been given. The other characters with the exception of bullseye (who colin farell plays...quite badly) are totally forgettable, even Elektra who is a phenomenally large part of the Daredevil mythos make nearly no impact on the viewing experience. All in all however, despite its short falls, while not the most faithful adaptation it is a great popcorn movie. A movie that you can essentially turn your brain off, crack open a few beers and just chill out and watch. So sit back, relax and enjoy this discount, bargain basement adaptation of one of the most complex and sucsessful comic book characters in history. TL:DR Great popcorn movie. Very unfaithful to source material.

Daredevil is not the best Marvel film but it's better than some of the others.
