A good attempt to bring the man without fear to the screen, the film suffers primarily from trying to do too much. Too many core characters, the film squanders any emotional resonance in sacrifice to the abbreviated timeline. Affleck does an admirable attempt at the character but the film never gels.
Not a total travesty. The fault lay in compressing and miscasting the best story arc.
This movie is Phantom Menace bad. Wildly disappointing. Daredevil is a champion of the true comic fan and this movie is an injustice.
