Daredevil Episodes 1-3 Review
April 12, 2015 By Joe Solomon
After I cleaned up my drool, I decided to write a review after watching the first three episodes of the Netflix SUPER HIT, “Daredevil”. The first three episodes of this show are better than almost all of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies. Honestly I think only Avengers and Guardians are better. “Daredevil” introduces us to everyone’s favourite blind hero/lawyer, Matt Murdock. Charlie Cox plays a perfect Matt Murdock, mixing bluntness with an incredible moral compass. He is the strongest asset on the show, and I haven’t even seen an episode about the Kingpin yet.
The threat of the Kingpin looms over the show like a storm cloud. We don’t hear his name until the third episode, but from the beginning we know he is the one pulling the strings. People are so afraid of him, that when they give up info about him they kill themselves as opposed to suffering through his wrath. Speaking of gross violence, the show does it a lot. The fight scenes are fluid and realistic (to a point), but brutal. We get to see a lot of compound fractures. The fighting is desperate, as we see Murdock sacrifice his body over and over again during the fights in order to secure victory over his enemies. Just like his Dad used to.
This show gives us a lot of supporting characters, but I’m only three episodes in so it’s hard to gauge how useful they are to the show. So far Page and Urich are great, but Foggy leaves a little to be desired at times. Hopefully he’ll play a bigger role in future episodes. This show also does not waste the 55 minutes of runtime it has. “Daredevil” has a lot of scenes that happen off screen, and you are to just imagine how they happened yourself. Like in the second episode when DD walks into a trap. The episode starts with the aftermath of the trap, and we never actually see him fighting his way out of it. But it doesn’t take away from the episode, and would only be a waste of time if shown. Instead the writers chose to focus on his recovery, and his vengeance on the ones who nearly killed him (which culminates in a one take hallways fight that would make “Old Boy” proud). This show is damn good, and needs to be watched by everyone who has Netflix. The constant allusions to the Avengers are nice, but it’s Matt Murdock who steals the show away from the powerhouses. I give the first three episodes a 10/10.
