I know some of you haven’t even started the series, which is more than understandable. You’re not all Netflix animals; I get that. I’ll make sure I don’t spoil anything for any of you.
Set in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, Marvel’s Daredevil is the story of Matt Murdock, a man who was blinded by radioactive chemicals as a child, who fights crime and is “just trying to make his city a better place.” A defense attorney by day, Murdock takes to the streets as a masked vigilante “looking” for someone who needs his assistance and particular set of skills.
As the most highly anticipated Netflix original series, Marvel’s Daredevil does not disappoint. Unlike Bloodline, House of Cards, or even Orange is the New Black, Daredevil wastes no time getting into the action with a killer fight sequence in the first scene.
The performance that stands out the most, though, is obviously Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin. I don’t know if it’s D’Onofrio’s best performance ever, but I also can’t imagine anyone else playing this role as well as he does. It’s almost as if it was tailor-made for him.
