I've read a couple of reviews that have said they ripped it off a movie called "Old Boy." But whatever, it was AMAZING. Just the way that DD was tired all the way through and not fighting like a Superhero at all. He's not super strong. He's not invulnerable. He just has radar vision and training and can take a beating. It was really awesome.That hallway fight scene at the end of episode 2 was frigging awesome.
I'm really enjoying this. Fisk is becoming more prominent and I'm enjoying the portrayal. The fight scenes are great. I'm starting to think this is better than AoS.
Don't embarrass Fisk. :shock:
ummm... yeah. That was ridiculous and awful. I... didn't like it.
But besides that, I'm loving this show.
I like how in interviews they made this sound like it'd be full of morally grey characters when this is probably the most black and white thing I've seen in a while. Even more than Marvel's films really. They even dealt with the no killing thing (something the rest of the MCU lacks). It's just more violent. If this was Marvel Knights what the heck is Marvel MAX going to look like?
The costume looks a lot better in the show and looks less like body armor. The lack of an emblem is still weirding me out.
I really liked how he moved like Daredevil. Reacted to sounds and movement. Flipping around all crazy and was full Miller/Bendis rage machine.
The ending looked brighter though so hopefully some swashbuckling is in the future. Kingpin was very well done as well. Everything was really.I can only imagine what this show would have been like with the Daily Bugle and JK Simmons as Jameson.Except for killing Ben Urich. That was a complete waste.
What was wrong with it? Dude is a child. Was the same way in the comics. He once crushed a guy's head with his bare hands because he used a word Fisk didn't understand.
The story is good enough, but the cast just isn't doing it for me. Foggy is terrible. It looks like a guy acting, and he's not good. It really takes me out of the story. I wish I could put my finger on it as to what it is that I don't like about him.
By the way, I was talking to a friend about this and he mentioned something that Fisk said in (I think) episode 4. "The rising tide raises all the boats." He thought this meant that Fisk is a part of the same organization that Skye was a part of in AOS. It seems like a stretch to me, especially since Fisk was all about secrets, but hey, who knows.
