DaredevilBB.5

(out of 5)


After a little boy is blinded by toxic chemicals during a freak accident, he finds that his remaining sense of hearing is so strong that sound vibrations give him an X-ray vision of the world around him. He develops his newfound ability until his adulthood when he takes to the street in red leather as Daredevil, the Man With No Fear, avenging crimes in the slums of New York City.  gives a vapid performance in this very vapid movie, a superhero film that has very little originality or fun to it; the action sequences are too few and far between, and the editing is so sloppy that most of the time the work that he and co-star  are doing seems to reveal all the ‘fight training’ that went on before shooting. Garner plays a billionaire heiress whose father is mixed up in the business of the Kingpin (), the underworld gang leader who has become the focus of Daredevil’s attention. It’s not a hatefully bad film, but coming so soon after the deliciously dark Spider-Man makes its mundaneness shine all the more.
