If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.
Thoughts: We watched Daredevil when it back in 2003 and we hated it so we decided to watch it again and we liked it. Daredevil is like Marvel's Batman but darker, has some powers, and doesn't have a problem killing people that deserve it.

The Good: Ben Affleck was good as Daredevill and play a very convincing blind man,
The Bad: Casting for Bullseye (Colin Farrell) and Wilson Fisk (Michael Clarke Duncan) were bad choices for their roles, A few plot holes,
Plot: Matt Murdock (Ben Affleck) is a blind lawyer who lives in New York City's Hell's Kitchen and runs a firm with his best friend Franklin "Foggy" Nelson (Jon Favreau), which only defends innocent people and does not require payment.
As a child, Matt (Scott Terra) was blinded after toxic waste was spilled over his eyes while he was running away from home after discovering that his father, former boxer Jack "The Devil" Murdock (David Keith), had become an enforcer for a local mobster. The accident, however, also enhanced his other senses and gave him a sonar that allowed him to "see" through sonic vibrations. His father, blaming himself for his disability, stopped being an enforcer and went back to boxing. However, his new career was short-lived and he was murdered after refusing to turn in a fixed fight by the same mobster that had employed him earlier. In order to avenge his father's death, Matt learned martial arts and used his abilities to become a crime-fighter known as "Daredevil", who operates in Hell's Kitchen, going after the criminals that escape the conventional means of justice.
One day, Matt meets and falls in love with Elektra Natchios (Jennifer Garner), daughter of Nikolas Natchios (Erick Avari), a businessman that has dealings with Wilson Fisk (Michael Clarke Duncan), a rich executive who is also the Kingpin of New York City's Underworld. When Nikolas tries to bail on his dealings with Fisk, Fisk hires the Irish hitman Bullseye (Colin Farrell), who never misses a shot, to kill him. Watch the movie to see what happens next.
Plot: 7.4/10- Daredevil's plot was good but had a few plot holes.
Action: 7.0/10- Daredevil's action scenes were like The Matrix but looked fake and out of place.
Acting: 6.5/10- Every scene that Ben Affleck(Daredevil) and Jennifer Garner(Elektra) were was good their acting was top notch but the scenes with Bullseye (Colin Farrell) and Wilson Fisk (Michael Clarke Duncan) were not very good.
Special effects: 6.3/10- The special effects were ok but a little dated.
Soundtrack: 2.2/10- The soundtrack of licensed music was terrible and destacted from the movie but if you like that kind of music you might like it.
Comedy: 7.7/10- Daredevil is not a comedy but there were two very funny near the beginning of the movie.
Overall: 6.3/10- Overall Daredevil is at its best when its more about Daredevil and lest about the villians.
