    USA Today Mike Clark

    Kevin Smith shows up briefly as a lab technician in the miserable Daredevil, and that's a pity. This is a movie that desperately needs the presence of Smith's trademark sidekicks Jay and Silent Bob, with Smith as Bob, ragging worse than ever on his old pal Ben Affleck.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    Daredevil is the sort of half-assed, visually lackadaisical potboiler that makes you rue the day that comic-book franchises ever took over Hollywood.

    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    It isn't a great film, or even a greatly original one. Still, it has many grace notes, and interesting oddities.

    ReelViews James Berardinelli

    It's an adequate superhero yarn, but, hopefully, it's not the best of the burgeoning genre that 2003 has to offer.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    The movie is, in short, your money's worth, better than we expect, more fun than we deserve.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

OK for kids 14+

Superhero is darker, more violent than Spiderman.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie is more somber and much more violent than Spider-Man, including many deaths. There are sexual references and non-explicit sexual situations, including a reference to rape and a sexual encounter between people who do not know each other very well. There is some strong language and some drinking and smoking.

  • Families can talk about why we don't take the law into our own hands. How do you become a killer without being one of the bad guys? Why, when most superheroes have fantasy special powers, is a character who is disabled so appealing?
