The television show Daredevil is a cooperation between Marvel and Netflix that has 1 season of 13 hour-long episodes. The show is very popular and likely to get a second season. Daredevil, which is a live adaptation of the Marvel comic, tells the story of Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) who went blind after an accident that occurred when he was a child. Now he is a lawyer in the day and a superhero at night.
The story of this show is amazing. The plot just sucks you in and makes you want to keep watching. The hero helps the poor and the weak in a city that is ruled by crime. While fighting crime, he makes more and more enemies while losing allies and the people close to him.
What differentiates Daredevil from other hero shows is that it shows a lot of emotions. Everyone in the series gives off a vibe that tells you what type of person he or she is, whether it’s a bad or good guy, main character or supporting. The characters develop really well and you get attached to the characters.
“I love seeing Matt beat down bad guys and save the day,” said Oakland Tech freshman Francisco Tran “This show got me hooked after five minutes, it’s a must-watch.”
What might make people stay away from this series is that it’s a hero show and they think that it is for kids. However, this show is not for kids. It has gore and thrilling fight scenes that will make you fangirl/boy.
I give this movie an A+ for its interesting plot, its realistic action, and the fast-paced character development. Everyone from ages 13 or up should give this show a try. You won’t regret it. I believe that this is the best show on Netflix at the moment.
