Ben Affleck is Matt Murdock, a Marvel Comics hero who's a lawyer by day but fights the bad guys at night to avenge the murder of his father, a boxer. But what sets Matt apart from most superheroes isn't his back story -- it's his handicap. Matt is blind, the result of a childhood accident that may have removed his ability to see but gifted him with heightened senses of touch, taste, hearing and smell. Michael Clarke Duncan co-stars as Kingpin.

Scott Hardie: “It sucked.”

If you stay away from superhero movies because most of them are awful, don't go to this one hoping for different. The characters demonstrate wildly inconsistent behavior when they're not doing physically impossible feats and healing mortal wounds in seconds for no apparent reason. Colin Farrell's snickering is perhaps the most characterization anyone gets. The cinematography and sets are interesting, but we barely get to see them for all the shadows. This is shrill, dumb, boring Hollywood action cinema.
