There is quite a bit of hatred pointed at the Daredevil film by the movie geek community. A quick scan of Amazon reviews (of the directors cut) threw up the following quotes that I doubt will be appearing on the poster any time soon:
“Worst movie ever”
“Utter utter pants!!”
“Very very bad… a gigantic piece of rubbish“
“Antiseptic and trite“
That last one in particular confuses me. “Trite” I can understand, even if I don’t agree with it. But antiseptic? Really? An antimicrobial substance that’s applied to living tissue/skin to reduce the policy of infection, sepsis or putrefaction?
I give that review one star out of five for its irrelevance and haberdashery.
I get that people don’t like Daredevil. Especially the theatrical version. But “worst film ever”?
John Lennon was once asked by an interviewer if Ringo was the best drummer in the world. “No” he replied “He’s not even the best drummer in The Beatles”
Here are five superhero movies worse than Daredevil:
Batman and Robin
This film is awful on so many more levels than “the Batsuit has nipples”. But…. the Batsuit has nipples.
Batman and Robin killed the Batman franchise stone dead for eight years. Saying that, without it would we have had the Nolan reboot?
Controversial I know. But the reason I think that Spider-Man 3 deserves it’s place in this list is that Spider-Man 1 & 2 were so-damned-good. There was no gradual drop off in quality like with Batman in order to prepare us for the eventual disappointment of a crappy movie. No, it went from great, to fantastic, to sucky emo Peter Parker dancing.
You broke my heart Spider-Man 3. You broke my heart.
Xmen: The Last Stand
Don’t kill off Cyclops. It’s not big, and it’s not clever. And while you are at it, don’t kill off 90% of the other characters too.
Also, just because Halle Berry demands more screen time doesn’t mean you should give it to her. Storm is boring. Sorry, but she is.
It’s virtually impossible to comprehend the thinking behind the producers of this travesty. Like with Batman and Robin, the costume alone is bad enough. It seems the traditional Catwoman sexy catsuit not being anywhere near as provocative or impractical for movie going audiences. We need outfits that would be seen as too outrageous at a lap dancing club apparently.
However even if you ignore the suit it’s the plot and the unnecessary and confusing alterations to the Catwoman mythology that really transform this movie into the abomination that it is.
Bad filmakers. Bad! Go sit in the corner and think about what you did.
Nic Cage. Awful CGI. Ridiculous flaming skull head. Enough said.
But if you are going to watch one of these movies, why not get as much as possible from it by considering a brand new 42 inch LCD TV from BrightHouse, you can spread the cost by paying weekly, fortnightly or monthly
I’m still not convinced the best TV in the world make these stinkers of movies tolerable though!
