This is a good entertaining movie!
Good movie. The Netflix series sparked my interest in this movie and it was definitely worth watching the movie.

It had quite a few good parts in it, but i have seen...
It had some really good parts in it, but i have seen better movies. If you like to watch or read superhero items/things, then i guess this is a movie you will certainly want to see, but for me, i think the movie could've been better. Besides that, it definately had some action and good parts to it. 4 stars fits it perfectly for me.

I thought it was smart, well written, well directed, and struck just the right tone for the material. Ben Affleck manages to make you believe in Matt Murdock, Jennifer Garner is both effective and stunning as Elektra. The movie focuses on the lead character and pushes almost everything else to the background. It's a great movie.

Ben Affleck.... A Real Daredevil
Ben Affleck.... A Real Daredevil in the Comic Book Based Movie !!
Ben Affleck was born as Benjamin Géza Affleck-Boldt in Berkeley, California, to Tim Affleck, who was a social worker, and Chris Boldt, a school teacher.
At eight years of age, Affleck met ten-year-old Matt Damon who lived two blocks away in Cambridge. Affleck and Damon would later attend Cambridge Rindge and Latin School together, although they were in different year groups.
Ben came to national attention in 1997 when he and best friend Matt Damon wrote the screenplay for and starred in Good Will Hunting.
After other sucessful films, Affleck starred in Daredevil, a 2003 movie directed by Mark Steven Johnson, who also wrote the screenplay. The movie is based on the Marvel comics character, using predominantly the 'grim and gritty' stories written by Frank Miller.
As a sidenote, Ben subsequently dated his Daredevil co-star, actress Jennifer Garner who portrayed Elektra, and the two were engaged. In May 2005, it was announced that Garner was pregnant and the couple were married on June 29, 2005 in the Caribbean. Garner gave birth to a daughter, Violet Anne Affleck, on December 1, 2005.
I started with the Daredevil Comic Book when it first appeared in print, back in 1964, and stopped reading it in 1974... so I missed the change to the 'Grim and Gritty' aspect by Frank Miller and others in the 1980's.
The Daredevil Movie and the Elektra Movie that featured Jennifer without Ben, were both of a 'Grim and Gritty' Style,' but I still enjoyed both of them, mainly because of Jennifer!
This would be a good DVD to own if you were a Daredevil Fan or a Marvel Comics Movies Fan!
