TV Review: ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’
The pulpy style and brutality (torture is one of Daredevil’s tools) clearly seek a higher sense of realism, which must be balanced against the notion of a blind superhero who can shimmy up walls and whose spectacular hearing lets him to function, among other things, as a human lie detector. Helpfully, Charlie Cox brings the necessary mix of grit and Marvel-esque self-doubts to the dual role.
Compared to Marvel’s experience with “Agents of SHIELD” for ABC, operating in Netflix’s pay-to-view world is clearly liberating, […] And the binge prospect should be helpful in getting people hooked on the overarching adventure, complete with Russian mobsters and feuding crime factions building toward the inevitable Daredevil-Kingpin showdown. – Brian Lowry, Variety
