Who do you know who is blind, has a white cane (it changes from cane to spear to grappling hook) and wears a red leather outfit? No it’s not me, well, I have been known to wear a red leather outfit. It’s the latest comic book super hero to hit the big screen named Daredevil. Matt Murdock (Ben Affleck) is a defense attorney who was blinded as a kid when he was sprayed with radioactive water. Even though he lost his sight, his other senses are so enhanced he has super-sonar-like abilities. With the help of his trusty ultra-cane (I have been trying to get my cane to do some of the same tricks) he maneuvers around the city at night fighting injustice as Daredevil. One day Matt meets a beautiful woman named Elektra (Jennifer Garner) whose father is involved with New York’s most notorious criminal named Kingpin (Michael Clarke Duncan). When her father tries to leave the organization Kingpin sends his hitman Bullseye (Colin Farrell) to kill him. Daredevil app ears and after a flurry of martial arts, knife throwing and spear chucking, Elektra’s father is killed and she thinks Daredevil is responsible. Predictably, Elektra sharpens her skills and goes after Daredevil to even the score. This is an action packed adventure that you will love if you are a super hero fan. Unlike the blockbuster film Spiderman, this is a dark film -of course they’re all dark to Daredevil and me. In fact, I think I’ll check with my wife and see if she can find my red leather outfit. It’s full of stabbing, throat slitting and free falling from skyscrapers. I do not recommend this movie for young kids. This is just mindless entertainment and I give it a C rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
