review/blindness

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at February 20, 2003 10:58 PM There's a fine line between exciting and silly, between badass and overdone, between serious and merely dull. Daredevil, like its blind protagonist, has no idea where these lines are. Tapping its cane, it wanders back and forth across them, the audience cringing each time.

Also: The line between sharp, witty writing and boring stock dialogue is not so fine. More of a vast gulf, really, and Daredevil is standing squarely on the wrong side.

Also: The slow motion Matrix jump kick is officially no longer cool when they have twelve year old kids doing it.

Also: Cowboy Bebop seems to have started a trend; I honestly can't think of a better use for an ornate stained glass window than throwing people through it anyway. Tags:
